victory. Coming up, it was attacked at Cannes
Film Festival, but this Nicole Kidman save any grace as the
Princess of Monaco? Hello and welcome to our look ahead
to what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. With me are Daily
Mirror's Deputy Political Editor James Lyons and theologian and
writer Vicky Beeching. Tomorrow's front pages.
The Guardian reports on proposals for snap inspections by school
inspectors and says all of Birmingham's schools could be taken
over after the so`called Trojan horse plot.
The Daily Telegraph leads with allegations of Islamic extremism in
some Birmingham schools. The Times says Michael Gove has been
told by David Cameron to launch dawn raids on schools.
The Daily Mail claims patients are finding it harder to get a GP
appointment as many surgeries shut appointment as many surgeries shut
for half a day during the week. The Daily Mirror says a new search
for the body of Keith Bennett could begin next week.
And the Metro lives with a row over the 2022 World Cup, saying that some
of the biggest sponsors have raised concerns over corruption
allegations. It is a story that has been rumbling
on for weeks and is still not over. This is the Trojan horse plot in
schools for hardline Muslims to take over the running of those schools.
Here is how the Guardian is covering this story. Number ten demands snap
OFSTED inspections. The first suggestion is that schools should no
longer get any warning that they are going to be inspected. This is not
just Birmingham schools, but all schools. It is a good point. You can
do a lot in a couple of days. You can rectify what you are teaching.
You can schedule things you would not have otherwise. That is what
they are saying. These schools were suddenly scheduling Christian
lessons and lessons about Christianity. It was to prove they
were having balance. To me it seems like a good safeguard. You do not
know what is going to be in these reports yet. There are 21 schools
and we have to go through all of that information. How damaging has
this been for interfaith relationships? There are some people
in the was a community who believe that they have been vilified in the
way this has been conducted. `` was them.
I am sure there are a lot of Muslims who feel ill used and some of the
language that has gone around it. They are the victims of what has
been going on just as much as the people. It is going to inflame
tensions at a time when we have politicians running around trying to
prevent tensions. That is very regrettable. These discussions sound
like a great idea. I do not understand why they were not going
on beforehand. Why aren't schools given notice? `` our schools. I am
surprised they were able to fall the inspectors quite so well. Small
children tend to blow things out. Spotchecks for Trojan horse plots.
It would not just be full specific schools, it could apply for all
schools. This suggestion is that perhaps all of the schools in
Birmingham would be taken over in some sort of sweet by central
government. Won't that allow schools to have even more autonomy from the
local authority? What many people have been saying is this whole sorry
situation highlights the problems with the government's current
reforms. Just trying to give them a lot of autonomy and keep them in
check in Whitehall. Teaching unions and `` they were saying you cannot
do that. One man in Whitehall cannot keep everything in check. You are
going to get problems like this. This is part of the problem that has
led to a spat between two different departments. Who is responsible for
schools and extremism in schools? It is crucial. Children are so easily
shaped at that age. There are other things that are seen to be possibly
lacking in the education system as well, including sex education that
round people out to go into the world as fully fledged citizens. It
is not enough to be clamping down on the core subjects, we have to be
giving people the training they need to go into the world and face
difference and diversity. I want to go ahead to the Times if that is OK.
We will come back to the Telegraph in just a moment. Michael Gove told
to launch dawn raids on schools. This is part of the same story. It
has been said that we need to forget the politics. This is a labour MP
who is the chair of the Home Affairs Select Committee. He says, forget
the politics, we need to concentrate on what is happening with the
schools and make sure that children are looked after. That is not going
to happen. I do not think he is completely done with the politics or
what is going on in Whitehall. The welfare of the pupils has been
paramount. The fact they have been failed by people in
Whitehall and have been failed for many years. There has
reckoning for that. Then in 2010. Nothing was done. That is serious.
`` they knew that in. Is it people who want to see a greater religious
contents to the way the school is run? It is difficult to know what is
extremism. I am a Christian but there are a lot of questions to make
me feel embarrassed. `` Christians. I think these headlines can almost
cause more problems in society by putting everybody into one camp.
Extremism is such a minority. There are so many Muslims who feel
targeted. Just the definition of extremism is part of the row between
the Michael Gove and the reason they are. `` careers are made. I could
Gove is very strong line and has pronounced views on what constitutes
Islamist thought. Some of his critics suggest he has a problem
that anybody who has got a bit, frankly. The Home Secretary focuses
on people who maybe I direct threat. The wine has to be really clear. ``
line. We need to make sure that not everybody is held under suspicion.
But Oscar back to the Daily Telegraph. Welcome to Rio. Steven
Gerrard going into his hotel. They have just arrived for the World
Cup, which starts next Saturday against Italy. I shall be watching
very closely. It just shows how expensive this tournament is. The
security outside. There has been so much unrest and I completely see
why. People are struggling to pay rent and are unhappy that millions
of dollars have been spent by the government when people do not have
access to hospitals or education. It is the most expensive World Cup
ever. It is going to result in unrest. People do not have basic
needs for living. You could say the same about the Olympics in Britain.
Very true. As we look at this nation, we have to make sure our
focus is on remembering the poverty and help people need. Some people
say that it will bring a lot of money into the country because of
everything that goes with the carnival, that comes with the World
Cup. It leaves me a bit cold, because I am probably not the person
to ask. There is a picture of a starving and Brazilian child with a
knife and fork and a plate and he is waiting for food and a football
comes. That was by a Brazilian street artist. Although it brings in
the reason, when your basic food needs are not met, it is difficult
to see your government's taxation go into stadiums. Let us look at
another story to go with the World Cup. This is a much better story.
Somebody deserves a pay rise. We are being told how to use the time
between the two halves of a football match. There are a whole host of my
time jobs you can do in the garden. `` makes time. It also makes sure
you do not get behind a `` on maintenance. It is a good time to do
it. Weeds and the seeds need daylight. There are all sorts of
things you can do in the garden. This is going to be in the early
hours of the morning. I might suggest that some people might have
had a drink. Are we really want people doing this? You can use beer
to kill the slugs in your garden. You can use a fume and its two
accomplished tasks. `` a few minutes to accomplish. If you break down
jobs like gardening into five`minute breaks you can get a lot done. Look
on Twitter and you will know what we are talking about. Let us move on to
the Daily Mail. One in four GP surgeries shut for half a day during
the week. There must be doing something productive. People say
during the week for part of the afternoon you cannot see your GP.
Probably what we need to be doing is looking at it differently and
celebrating our GPs more so that more people want the job. The system
is straining under a rapidly changing population. If they need
the extra hours to catch up on admin, it is not that they are
slacking off, they are doing a different type of work. Some GPs
refuse to cover antisocial hours. It is even longer than political
journalists take for lunch and we like to pride ourselves on a good
lunch. They have this treatment centres being set up where you can
walk in. They have been closing in recent years. Part of that is
because the reorganisation of the NHS, GPs get a say on what kind of
provision is in the area. As a result of this, funding has been
taken away from some of the walk in centres that could just treat you if
you turned up. It is competition for the GPs. You have the knock`on
problem that that causes. Let us go onto the Daily Express. Illegal
immigrants moving into Britain. 250 million are already here according
to experts. Only one in every 70 is suspected of being arrested. There
is a Home Office figures. But without seeing them in their
entirety, I am reluctant to comment. The immigration story is going to be
large in the election. Absolutely. You have got a newly elected UKIP
MEPs say that they do not have control. It frustrates me how they
grab hold of this immigration stats and just scaremonger. Immigration is
really healthy for any society. That is when UKIP take hold of it and
apply it to all immigration. Let us move on to the Metro. This is to do
with the bid to host the 2022 World Cup. More allegations of corruption.
The people who spend hundreds of millions of pounds to provide
sponsorship for the tournament, they say they want to know where the
money is going. Is where all the allegations get serious. The likes
of you and I complaining about it, FIFA are not going to listen. But
when the sponsors do it, they will sit up. There is an investigation
going on. A lawyer is heading it up and doing a thorough job. It is the
commercial aspect of this that will apply pressure. I have a real
passion for ethics to be taken seriously and justice to be restored
in society. I love the fact that these massive corporations are
saying that we need partners to have strong ethical standards. Using
words like integrity and fair play. I hope we can hold that. We would
like to carry on, but the music is playing. Nice to see you. Thank you.
