against Italy. The scene remained calm. The score remains 0`0, with

:00:00.:00:00.

half hour gone. `` half an hour. Hello and welcome to a look at what

:00:00.:00:21.

the papers will bring us tomorrow. With me, Kate Devlin, political

:00:22.:00:26.

correspondent and all of the brown, sports writer from the coming in. ``

:00:27.:00:32.

Oliver Browne. Let's look at the front pages. The Observer says that

:00:33.:00:37.

labour calls for cross`party talks on how religious education is

:00:38.:00:41.

conducted in the state sector. The paper highlights its own survey on

:00:42.:00:46.

the funding of faith schools `` the Labour Party. The Independent on

:00:47.:00:50.

Sunday highlights the crisis in Iraq as Iran offers to help and the US

:00:51.:00:55.

and an aircraft carrier to the Golf. The mail on Sunday says the PM David

:00:56.:01:01.

Cameron pledges to tackle extremism and reassert British values

:01:02.:01:04.

enshrined in the Magna Carta `` Delph. The Sunday Telegraph

:01:05.:01:07.

highlights how the number of families paying inheritance tax

:01:08.:01:13.

bills will arrive `` arise by a third. The Sunday Times has more

:01:14.:01:18.

allegations about the World Cup 2020 to bid for Qatar, showing ignored

:01:19.:01:23.

warnings about the risk of a terrorist attack closing the event.

:01:24.:01:29.

And, the Sun carries a story about Mick Jagger and his alleged

:01:30.:01:31.

relationship with an American ballet dancer. Let's begin. We start this

:01:32.:01:40.

evening with the Independent. The story about the headline, Baghdad

:01:41.:01:48.

fight back. It has been a story that has dominated the news today. It is

:01:49.:01:53.

interesting the Independent has chosen this headline. There seems to

:01:54.:01:57.

be a question mark about its ability to do so. The Sunday Times has an

:01:58.:02:04.

interesting story about an Iranian general it says is now effectively

:02:05.:02:10.

in Baghdad, helping to train the people who will lead the fight back.

:02:11.:02:15.

There are lots of questions about what the ability is within the

:02:16.:02:19.

country to fight ISIS and the questions it raises for the world.

:02:20.:02:25.

This unlikely alliance forming between Iran and America. Unlikely

:02:26.:02:30.

bedfellows, it you might say. I think that Iran, they denied there

:02:31.:02:35.

is any embedded presence in Baghdad at the moment. It is striking that

:02:36.:02:43.

Iran's president is saying he is willing to co`operate with the US.

:02:44.:02:49.

The headline, I think there is a danger of complacency. While they

:02:50.:02:54.

might have stopped the troops at 60 miles away, what will it take to

:02:55.:03:03.

repel them? That would require American involvement and clearly

:03:04.:03:05.

President Obama is willing to launch air strikes. Anything short of a

:03:06.:03:13.

ground invasion seems to be on the table. Moving on. The Observer,

:03:14.:03:22.

which looks back at the UK. They have carried out a survey looking at

:03:23.:03:30.

what people think of faith schools. They are asking where people think

:03:31.:03:35.

the funding should come from. Kate, I will start with you. You said that

:03:36.:03:41.

she went to a faith School. Surprisingly, you aren't happy with

:03:42.:03:48.

them as a role model. I think there are significant problems with faith

:03:49.:03:50.

schools and not only because I spent 14 years at one. The great thing

:03:51.:03:57.

about school is that it teaches kids. It is a levelling thing,

:03:58.:04:00.

teaches kids that people are similar to them. The problem is, if you put

:04:01.:04:09.

children into faith schools, it creates division. It is interesting

:04:10.:04:13.

that this poll, I was surprised by how many people think that. 60% said

:04:14.:04:18.

that they thought faith schools promoted division. I think there is

:04:19.:04:26.

a caveat here, it would be interesting to see if these figures

:04:27.:04:30.

were at the same level a couple of weeks ago before the allegations

:04:31.:04:32.

about extremist de targeting schools. `` extremists. About the

:04:33.:04:41.

Trojan Horse. It is a question about what the concerns people would

:04:42.:04:47.

have. It comes off the back of the Trojan Horse thing. Those figures

:04:48.:04:51.

are high. There is no doubt. I don't know the size of the poll. The

:04:52.:04:57.

figures are high. I am amazed by the strength of feeling, that is 58%

:04:58.:05:00.

believe faith schools should not be funded by the state or should be

:05:01.:05:05.

abolished and that 70% said the taxpayers shouldn't have any role in

:05:06.:05:08.

funding the promotion of religion in schools. Kate was giving us an

:05:09.:05:16.

account of being taught by nuns in Northern Ireland, but I wonder what

:05:17.:05:19.

the significance that is ascribed to faith schools. The notion that we

:05:20.:05:28.

learn a news in a classroom is misplaced. We learn from parents and

:05:29.:05:33.

from how people behave around you. Sometimes I think the importance is

:05:34.:05:37.

overstated of how it can affect you. I am sure that some faith schools R.

:05:38.:05:41.

We have just been told that Italy have scored `` are. Do you want to

:05:42.:05:51.

show some live footage? They are celebrating now. He is the goal.

:05:52.:05:57.

Played wide. `` here it is the goal. Leaving Joe Hart sprawling. Unable

:05:58.:06:04.

to stop it. Italy are a 1`0 ahead. Let's carry on with the newspapers.

:06:05.:06:11.

With the funding on faith schools, there is no doubt they would get

:06:12.:06:16.

good results. The Church of England has been robust in its defence in

:06:17.:06:19.

the comments it has given this evening. Anyone who thinks that the

:06:20.:06:27.

wishy`washy Church of England primary schools out there are

:06:28.:06:31.

attracting extremists is overplaying it. I think that the poll suggests

:06:32.:06:35.

there is a bigger issue than that. The Daily Mail has a link story.

:06:36.:06:44.

David Cameron says, the more British. You aren't convinced about

:06:45.:06:50.

this. `` E more British. It's the talk of British values, I wonder

:06:51.:06:53.

what happened to the great British value of understatement. It seems

:06:54.:07:01.

that Cameron is tapping into this fad for being very muscular about

:07:02.:07:06.

British values, without actually specifying directly what they are.

:07:07.:07:14.

If I might be indulged, you hear a lot around the England rugby team

:07:15.:07:20.

about provoking the spirit of age in court. With Cameron saying he will

:07:21.:07:25.

use the 800 anniversary of the Magna Carta, I think that is a bit of a

:07:26.:07:28.

fake, historical anniversary `` Agincourt. A fact that it is a

:07:29.:07:33.

general election year in 2015 is more central. You are very cynical.

:07:34.:07:40.

The big question many people will say is, what are British values?

:07:41.:07:46.

Unfortunately, the government has not pin them down. Michael Gove's

:07:47.:07:51.

department will consult this summer over what the richest values are

:07:52.:07:54.

before they can teach them in schools from September. `` what

:07:55.:08:01.

these British values. There isn't anything wrong of being proud of who

:08:02.:08:04.

you are and of your achievements and values. I agree with Oliver, there

:08:05.:08:11.

is something not British about it. England have scored, so there is

:08:12.:08:14.

something very British about this. It is not Wayne Rooney. Oliver will

:08:15.:08:21.

tell me, I think that is Sturridge. It looks like it, certainly. We are

:08:22.:08:27.

not getting mum of a newspaper review but we are getting one heck

:08:28.:08:32.

of a soccer wrap `` not getting much. On to the Sunday Times. We are

:08:33.:08:40.

rattling through. It is a feature story about the awarding to Qatar of

:08:41.:08:47.

the 2022 World Cup and the story says that FIFA ignored its own

:08:48.:08:54.

terror alert, allegedly. It isn't quite the smoking gun that the

:08:55.:08:57.

Sunday Times were looking for despite their great work on the

:08:58.:09:02.

story. This is Andre priest, who headed the security operation at the

:09:03.:09:07.

2010 World Cup, saying or alleging FIFA ignored his advice that it was

:09:08.:09:12.

unwise to hold the World Cup in Kotara, because of its proximity to

:09:13.:09:19.

countries with an Al Qaeda presence `` Qatar `` Andre Priest. There is

:09:20.:09:24.

also information about the alleged corruption involvement with the lead

:09:25.:09:27.

investigator supposedly receiving a wonderful watch from the army of

:09:28.:09:36.

Kotara. There is a statement from Kotara saying they have Michael

:09:37.:09:40.

Garcia, the FIFA ethics investigator looking at this `` Kotara. They say

:09:41.:09:43.

the allegations are baseless and riddled with innuendo. Onto the

:09:44.:09:48.

Sunday Times a great headline, Labour 's dosh for dads. There is a

:09:49.:09:54.

sting in the tail. They might back this. It is an interesting policy

:09:55.:10:03.

idea, the idea of giving dad 's four weeks paid paternity leave instead

:10:04.:10:07.

of just two. You can take it off at the moment, unpaid. Only 1% of dads

:10:08.:10:14.

are doing it. I think this will be very popular with young families.

:10:15.:10:17.

Oliver, in a few seconds, there will be lots of people tearing their hair

:10:18.:10:24.

out. 72% of employers were implacably opposed to this. Thank

:10:25.:10:30.

you very much. Kate Durbin and Oliver Browne. Sorry, we interrupt

:10:31.:10:37.

you for the sport. Stay with us on BBC News. At midnight, Iran offers

:10:38.:10:43.

to help Baghdad and Washington stopped Sunni insurgents from

:10:44.:10:45.

capturing territory inside Iraq. Coming up next, as you might exert,

:10:46.:10:49.

it is World Cup Sportsday. `` expect.
