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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


Cameron pledges to tackle extremism and reassert British values


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


highlights how the number of families paying inheritance tax


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


interesting the Independent has chosen this headline. There seems to


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


interesting story about an Iranian general it says is now effectively


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


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


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


This unlikely alliance forming between Iran and America. Unlikely


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


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


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


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


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


repel them? That would require American involvement and clearly


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


wishy`washy Church of England primary schools out there are


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


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


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


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


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


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


British values, without actually specifying directly what they are.


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


department will consult this summer over what the richest values are


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


Sunday Times were looking for despite their great work on the


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


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


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


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


also information about the alleged corruption involvement with the lead


investigator supposedly receiving a wonderful watch from the army of


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


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


the allegations are baseless and riddled with innuendo. Onto the


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


to help Baghdad and Washington stopped Sunni insurgents from


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


it is World Cup Sportsday. `` expect.
