victory. Coming up, it was attacked at Cannes

:00:00.:00:00.

Film Festival, but this Nicole Kidman save any grace as the

:00:00.:00:00.

Princess of Monaco? Hello and welcome to our look ahead

:00:00.:00:17.

to what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. With me are Daily

:00:18.:00:20.

Mirror's Deputy Political Editor James Lyons and theologian and

:00:21.:00:24.

writer Vicky Beeching. Tomorrow's front pages.

:00:25.:00:33.

The Guardian reports on proposals for snap inspections by school

:00:34.:00:35.

inspectors and says all of Birmingham's schools could be taken

:00:36.:00:40.

over after the so`called Trojan horse plot.

:00:41.:00:46.

The Daily Telegraph leads with allegations of Islamic extremism in

:00:47.:00:52.

some Birmingham schools. The Times says Michael Gove has been

:00:53.:00:56.

told by David Cameron to launch dawn raids on schools.

:00:57.:01:01.

The Daily Mail claims patients are finding it harder to get a GP

:01:02.:01:04.

appointment as many surgeries shut appointment as many surgeries shut

:01:05.:01:10.

for half a day during the week. The Daily Mirror says a new search

:01:11.:01:14.

for the body of Keith Bennett could begin next week.

:01:15.:01:19.

And the Metro lives with a row over the 2022 World Cup, saying that some

:01:20.:01:22.

of the biggest sponsors have raised concerns over corruption

:01:23.:01:25.

allegations. It is a story that has been rumbling

:01:26.:01:29.

on for weeks and is still not over. This is the Trojan horse plot in

:01:30.:01:37.

schools for hardline Muslims to take over the running of those schools.

:01:38.:01:42.

Here is how the Guardian is covering this story. Number ten demands snap

:01:43.:01:50.

OFSTED inspections. The first suggestion is that schools should no

:01:51.:01:54.

longer get any warning that they are going to be inspected. This is not

:01:55.:01:59.

just Birmingham schools, but all schools. It is a good point. You can

:02:00.:02:04.

do a lot in a couple of days. You can rectify what you are teaching.

:02:05.:02:08.

You can schedule things you would not have otherwise. That is what

:02:09.:02:13.

they are saying. These schools were suddenly scheduling Christian

:02:14.:02:15.

lessons and lessons about Christianity. It was to prove they

:02:16.:02:24.

were having balance. To me it seems like a good safeguard. You do not

:02:25.:02:29.

know what is going to be in these reports yet. There are 21 schools

:02:30.:02:38.

and we have to go through all of that information. How damaging has

:02:39.:02:40.

this been for interfaith relationships? There are some people

:02:41.:02:45.

in the was a community who believe that they have been vilified in the

:02:46.:02:51.

way this has been conducted. `` was them.

:02:52.:02:54.

I am sure there are a lot of Muslims who feel ill used and some of the

:02:55.:03:07.

language that has gone around it. They are the victims of what has

:03:08.:03:12.

been going on just as much as the people. It is going to inflame

:03:13.:03:21.

tensions at a time when we have politicians running around trying to

:03:22.:03:24.

prevent tensions. That is very regrettable. These discussions sound

:03:25.:03:30.

like a great idea. I do not understand why they were not going

:03:31.:03:36.

on beforehand. Why aren't schools given notice? `` our schools. I am

:03:37.:03:45.

surprised they were able to fall the inspectors quite so well. Small

:03:46.:03:47.

children tend to blow things out. Spotchecks for Trojan horse plots.

:03:48.:04:00.

It would not just be full specific schools, it could apply for all

:04:01.:04:06.

schools. This suggestion is that perhaps all of the schools in

:04:07.:04:09.

Birmingham would be taken over in some sort of sweet by central

:04:10.:04:14.

government. Won't that allow schools to have even more autonomy from the

:04:15.:04:22.

local authority? What many people have been saying is this whole sorry

:04:23.:04:26.

situation highlights the problems with the government's current

:04:27.:04:34.

reforms. Just trying to give them a lot of autonomy and keep them in

:04:35.:04:46.

check in Whitehall. Teaching unions and `` they were saying you cannot

:04:47.:04:51.

do that. One man in Whitehall cannot keep everything in check. You are

:04:52.:04:58.

going to get problems like this. This is part of the problem that has

:04:59.:05:02.

led to a spat between two different departments. Who is responsible for

:05:03.:05:10.

schools and extremism in schools? It is crucial. Children are so easily

:05:11.:05:14.

shaped at that age. There are other things that are seen to be possibly

:05:15.:05:17.

lacking in the education system as well, including sex education that

:05:18.:05:25.

round people out to go into the world as fully fledged citizens. It

:05:26.:05:31.

is not enough to be clamping down on the core subjects, we have to be

:05:32.:05:34.

giving people the training they need to go into the world and face

:05:35.:05:44.

difference and diversity. I want to go ahead to the Times if that is OK.

:05:45.:05:49.

We will come back to the Telegraph in just a moment. Michael Gove told

:05:50.:05:55.

to launch dawn raids on schools. This is part of the same story. It

:05:56.:06:05.

has been said that we need to forget the politics. This is a labour MP

:06:06.:06:13.

who is the chair of the Home Affairs Select Committee. He says, forget

:06:14.:06:15.

the politics, we need to concentrate on what is happening with the

:06:16.:06:20.

schools and make sure that children are looked after. That is not going

:06:21.:06:30.

to happen. I do not think he is completely done with the politics or

:06:31.:06:35.

what is going on in Whitehall. The welfare of the pupils has been

:06:36.:06:38.

paramount. The fact they have been failed by people in

:06:39.:06:48.

Whitehall and have been failed for many years. There has

:06:49.:06:51.

reckoning for that. Then in 2010. Nothing was done. That is serious.

:06:52.:07:04.

`` they knew that in. Is it people who want to see a greater religious

:07:05.:07:12.

contents to the way the school is run? It is difficult to know what is

:07:13.:07:18.

extremism. I am a Christian but there are a lot of questions to make

:07:19.:07:26.

me feel embarrassed. `` Christians. I think these headlines can almost

:07:27.:07:37.

cause more problems in society by putting everybody into one camp.

:07:38.:07:42.

Extremism is such a minority. There are so many Muslims who feel

:07:43.:07:50.

targeted. Just the definition of extremism is part of the row between

:07:51.:07:53.

the Michael Gove and the reason they are. `` careers are made. I could

:07:54.:08:00.

Gove is very strong line and has pronounced views on what constitutes

:08:01.:08:06.

Islamist thought. Some of his critics suggest he has a problem

:08:07.:08:08.

that anybody who has got a bit, frankly. The Home Secretary focuses

:08:09.:08:15.

on people who maybe I direct threat. The wine has to be really clear. ``

:08:16.:08:23.

line. We need to make sure that not everybody is held under suspicion.

:08:24.:08:30.

But Oscar back to the Daily Telegraph. Welcome to Rio. Steven

:08:31.:08:38.

Gerrard going into his hotel. They have just arrived for the World

:08:39.:08:44.

Cup, which starts next Saturday against Italy. I shall be watching

:08:45.:08:57.

very closely. It just shows how expensive this tournament is. The

:08:58.:09:04.

security outside. There has been so much unrest and I completely see

:09:05.:09:10.

why. People are struggling to pay rent and are unhappy that millions

:09:11.:09:14.

of dollars have been spent by the government when people do not have

:09:15.:09:18.

access to hospitals or education. It is the most expensive World Cup

:09:19.:09:22.

ever. It is going to result in unrest. People do not have basic

:09:23.:09:30.

needs for living. You could say the same about the Olympics in Britain.

:09:31.:09:37.

Very true. As we look at this nation, we have to make sure our

:09:38.:09:40.

focus is on remembering the poverty and help people need. Some people

:09:41.:09:48.

say that it will bring a lot of money into the country because of

:09:49.:09:50.

everything that goes with the carnival, that comes with the World

:09:51.:09:57.

Cup. It leaves me a bit cold, because I am probably not the person

:09:58.:10:04.

to ask. There is a picture of a starving and Brazilian child with a

:10:05.:10:07.

knife and fork and a plate and he is waiting for food and a football

:10:08.:10:15.

comes. That was by a Brazilian street artist. Although it brings in

:10:16.:10:22.

the reason, when your basic food needs are not met, it is difficult

:10:23.:10:25.

to see your government's taxation go into stadiums. Let us look at

:10:26.:10:31.

another story to go with the World Cup. This is a much better story.

:10:32.:10:38.

Somebody deserves a pay rise. We are being told how to use the time

:10:39.:10:43.

between the two halves of a football match. There are a whole host of my

:10:44.:10:49.

time jobs you can do in the garden. `` makes time. It also makes sure

:10:50.:10:58.

you do not get behind a `` on maintenance. It is a good time to do

:10:59.:11:06.

it. Weeds and the seeds need daylight. There are all sorts of

:11:07.:11:12.

things you can do in the garden. This is going to be in the early

:11:13.:11:16.

hours of the morning. I might suggest that some people might have

:11:17.:11:20.

had a drink. Are we really want people doing this? You can use beer

:11:21.:11:26.

to kill the slugs in your garden. You can use a fume and its two

:11:27.:11:34.

accomplished tasks. `` a few minutes to accomplish. If you break down

:11:35.:11:38.

jobs like gardening into five`minute breaks you can get a lot done. Look

:11:39.:11:46.

on Twitter and you will know what we are talking about. Let us move on to

:11:47.:11:51.

the Daily Mail. One in four GP surgeries shut for half a day during

:11:52.:11:58.

the week. There must be doing something productive. People say

:11:59.:12:06.

during the week for part of the afternoon you cannot see your GP.

:12:07.:12:10.

Probably what we need to be doing is looking at it differently and

:12:11.:12:13.

celebrating our GPs more so that more people want the job. The system

:12:14.:12:21.

is straining under a rapidly changing population. If they need

:12:22.:12:28.

the extra hours to catch up on admin, it is not that they are

:12:29.:12:30.

slacking off, they are doing a different type of work. Some GPs

:12:31.:12:38.

refuse to cover antisocial hours. It is even longer than political

:12:39.:12:41.

journalists take for lunch and we like to pride ourselves on a good

:12:42.:12:48.

lunch. They have this treatment centres being set up where you can

:12:49.:12:53.

walk in. They have been closing in recent years. Part of that is

:12:54.:12:58.

because the reorganisation of the NHS, GPs get a say on what kind of

:12:59.:13:04.

provision is in the area. As a result of this, funding has been

:13:05.:13:10.

taken away from some of the walk in centres that could just treat you if

:13:11.:13:13.

you turned up. It is competition for the GPs. You have the knock`on

:13:14.:13:22.

problem that that causes. Let us go onto the Daily Express. Illegal

:13:23.:13:28.

immigrants moving into Britain. 250 million are already here according

:13:29.:13:36.

to experts. Only one in every 70 is suspected of being arrested. There

:13:37.:13:44.

is a Home Office figures. But without seeing them in their

:13:45.:13:53.

entirety, I am reluctant to comment. The immigration story is going to be

:13:54.:14:00.

large in the election. Absolutely. You have got a newly elected UKIP

:14:01.:14:07.

MEPs say that they do not have control. It frustrates me how they

:14:08.:14:09.

grab hold of this immigration stats and just scaremonger. Immigration is

:14:10.:14:18.

really healthy for any society. That is when UKIP take hold of it and

:14:19.:14:22.

apply it to all immigration. Let us move on to the Metro. This is to do

:14:23.:14:31.

with the bid to host the 2022 World Cup. More allegations of corruption.

:14:32.:14:38.

The people who spend hundreds of millions of pounds to provide

:14:39.:14:48.

sponsorship for the tournament, they say they want to know where the

:14:49.:14:54.

money is going. Is where all the allegations get serious. The likes

:14:55.:15:01.

of you and I complaining about it, FIFA are not going to listen. But

:15:02.:15:05.

when the sponsors do it, they will sit up. There is an investigation

:15:06.:15:11.

going on. A lawyer is heading it up and doing a thorough job. It is the

:15:12.:15:16.

commercial aspect of this that will apply pressure. I have a real

:15:17.:15:24.

passion for ethics to be taken seriously and justice to be restored

:15:25.:15:29.

in society. I love the fact that these massive corporations are

:15:30.:15:33.

saying that we need partners to have strong ethical standards. Using

:15:34.:15:36.

words like integrity and fair play. I hope we can hold that. We would

:15:37.:15:43.

like to carry on, but the music is playing. Nice to see you. Thank you.

:15:44.:15:53.

Coming up next, time for the film review.

Welcome to the Film Review. What do we have?
