Hello and welcome to our lookahead at what the papers bring us

:00:18.:00:24.

tomorrow. We have Craig Woodhouse with us today. Let's have a look at

:00:25.:00:30.

the pages. The Times says the US is open to talks with Iran to try and

:00:31.:00:35.

halt the crisis in Iraq. Migration is the story on The Daily Telegraph,

:00:36.:00:40.

claiming half the population believe a decade of mass migration has

:00:41.:00:43.

harmed the economy and undermined British culture. Fewer than one in

:00:44.:00:49.

five voters say they are benefiting from the improved economy, according

:00:50.:00:51.

to a poll in tomorrow's Guardian. The Metro says nurses are calling

:00:52.:00:54.

for intoxicated patients to be banned from A The search for

:00:55.:00:57.

Madeleine McCann is the main story in the Mirror, after a libel action

:00:58.:01:00.

by her parents against the police officer who initially led the search

:01:01.:01:04.

was postponed again today. The Sun has a picture of Louise Pollard ` a

:01:05.:01:07.

surrogate mother who's been jailed for faking pregnancies. The Express

:01:08.:01:17.

says the strengthening pound means Britons going abroad for their

:01:18.:01:20.

summer holidays will get much more for their money. And, the Daily Mail

:01:21.:01:23.

says the government is planning to make sure school milk is offered to

:01:24.:01:27.

all pupils in primary and secondary schools from the New Year.

:01:28.:01:34.

We start with the situation in Iraq. On the front of the

:01:35.:01:40.

Independent, from the great Satan to the great rapprochement. The US and

:01:41.:01:47.

Iran could work together to fight against ISIS. The great

:01:48.:02:00.

rapprochement between the US and Iran is up there with the political

:02:01.:02:06.

settlement of the Good Friday agreement in Northern Ireland, if it

:02:07.:02:12.

happens. They talk in the first paragraph of the collapse of Iraq.

:02:13.:02:19.

As though it were a fact. It has led the US towards a historic

:02:20.:02:22.

rapprochement, which could end 35 years of hostility. It will be

:02:23.:02:27.

fascinating to see if that is followed tomorrow in the House of

:02:28.:02:34.

Commons. William Hague announcing the reopening of the Rikishi embassy

:02:35.:02:42.

in Iran. `` British embassy. Things are moving at a fantastic pace. What

:02:43.:02:47.

it seems to someone like me, I have a little more knowledge about

:02:48.:02:51.

Kurdistan and the Kurds in the north of that country than frankly about

:02:52.:02:57.

the rest of Barack, but it seems we are witnessing the fragmentation of

:02:58.:03:02.

Iraq `` Iraq. The Kurds, who felt hard done by in a horrendous way by

:03:03.:03:12.

Saddam are going to this as their excuse to become a fully independent

:03:13.:03:20.

Kurdistan. David is rightly saying, it talks in the past tense about the

:03:21.:03:24.

collapse of Iraq leading to... On the front of the Independent. That

:03:25.:03:28.

is a little strong isn't it? There is a functioning government in the

:03:29.:03:31.

capital and they are fighting back with airstrikes and the man who

:03:32.:03:37.

coined the phrase shock and or in response to how America should

:03:38.:03:40.

approach military engagements, I spoke to him this evening and he was

:03:41.:03:43.

saying that there should not be any panic, we will give it one or two

:03:44.:03:47.

weeks and see what the Iraq forces can actually do in trying to stem

:03:48.:03:53.

the tide of these militants. Contrast that with the verified or

:03:54.:03:57.

otherwise images of Iraqi soldiers who have chosen not to fight and

:03:58.:04:01.

have been mercilessly executed by ISIS. For all their might be a

:04:02.:04:07.

centre in Baghdad, there are vast swathes of the country that are

:04:08.:04:12.

lawless. To that extent, it is a collapse. Stories about cueist Andy

:04:13.:04:22.

Iran `` the west and Iran coming together. Imagine if this had

:04:23.:04:27.

happened 13 months ago. This would not be an option. Who knows? If you

:04:28.:04:35.

have a warmongering Iran, what this would look like. We are lucky there

:04:36.:04:42.

is some hope for peace and if there is a redrawing of the political map,

:04:43.:04:46.

so be it. I would rather that than the alternative. I saw the interview

:04:47.:04:53.

you speak about with General Jack Keane, and he was saying that Nouri

:04:54.:05:01.

Maliki, the PM, has been a disaster. He has not built the coalition

:05:02.:05:05.

government that was desperately needed. He must be on very thin ice.

:05:06.:05:17.

One would think. Continuing this story, on the front of the times

:05:18.:05:24.

there is a disturbing photograph `` the Times. This is a photo of ISIS

:05:25.:05:28.

fighters, according to the paper, purportedly showing militants

:05:29.:05:35.

shooting members of the Iraq army at an undisclosed location near the

:05:36.:05:38.

Syrian border. We won't go closer to this footage, because we have taken

:05:39.:05:44.

the position at the BBC is not to show the full extent of this footage

:05:45.:05:50.

and how horrible it is. As more of these stories come out, there is

:05:51.:05:55.

going to be continuing pressure on the West to do something and Obama

:05:56.:05:59.

is making his national security team this evening. Absolutely. This talks

:06:00.:06:06.

about names the ISIS fighters made yesterday. What has been

:06:07.:06:09.

fascinating, which we saw in Libya and a little in Syria, is the use of

:06:10.:06:16.

social media by ISIS to get their messages out `` gains. They have the

:06:17.:06:19.

hang of propaganda campaigning and how to... It is effective, that

:06:20.:06:25.

these images are controlled by them from what we know, put out there for

:06:26.:06:31.

Western consumption, and now they are here in Western newspapers.

:06:32.:06:34.

Something needs to happen to counter it, though it doesn't seem to be

:06:35.:06:37.

something that... (CROSSTALK) Not everyone is in favour of this.

:06:38.:06:52.

Republican Senator Connie John McCain lost the first election to

:06:53.:07:03.

Freddie `` President Obama and he says that it would be the height of

:07:04.:07:08.

folly to manage the deteriorating security situation in Iraq. It will

:07:09.:07:13.

be interesting to see what Obama comes up with. What if his

:07:14.:07:22.

prescription? Is it shock and awe? What is the alternative? What is his

:07:23.:07:29.

policy? We just hearing from the House that the president is telling

:07:30.:07:36.

Congress that 275 US military personnel are being deployed to Iraq

:07:37.:07:42.

to provide security for the US Embassy in Baghdad as there seem to

:07:43.:07:51.

be fears that ISIS is going to cause trouble there. They might be saying

:07:52.:07:58.

it to protect US interests in Baghdad but if they are going they

:07:59.:08:01.

are coming presumably they will be available if the government asks.

:08:02.:08:09.

William Hague said today that we have got counterterrorism people

:08:10.:08:20.

from the UK there or on the way. I think they are already in the

:08:21.:08:25.

country. And for all this talk of no British boots on the ground Connie

:08:26.:08:28.

William Hague is always careful to never say never. All options are on

:08:29.:08:36.

the table, no question about that. School meals for all pupils.

:08:37.:08:46.

Famously, of course, it was a Tory Prime Minister who took this away.

:08:47.:08:58.

She wasn't the Prime Minister. She was the education minister, I'm

:08:59.:09:03.

sorry. When she was in her milk snack snatching mode coming she was

:09:04.:09:11.

in the House of Commons. This is the U`turn to end all of you turns ``

:09:12.:09:27.

U`turns. It was only four years ago that David Cameron had to stop his

:09:28.:09:35.

higher education minister's plans to take away the meals for under

:09:36.:09:45.

fives. The question is, is enforceable in all schools? I seem

:09:46.:09:51.

to remember that the reason why it was abolished in the first place was

:09:52.:09:56.

partly because of costs but also because an awful lot of children,

:09:57.:10:05.

dare I say it, I was brought up in a dairy and the idea of having more

:10:06.:10:08.

milk when I got to school was not to my liking and it disappeared. But

:10:09.:10:16.

the coalition government, certainly the Lib Dems at any rate, have been

:10:17.:10:23.

pushing for school meals for all pupils and certainly those who need

:10:24.:10:30.

it. Is this going to work Pies will they be able to implement this

:10:31.:10:41.

policy ``? They have had to change the parameters from hot food to some

:10:42.:10:48.

kind of food. I think this is about integrating habits and also with the

:10:49.:10:53.

political message, it is gone from Margaret Hatcher to David Cameron

:10:54.:10:58.

and the milkman `` Margaret Thatcher. What is your position? I

:10:59.:11:09.

think it is a bit like a surrogate mother let's move on. Classic

:11:10.:11:32.

European pickup on the horizon. `` stitch`up. Unfortunately for David

:11:33.:11:40.

Cameron, Angela Merkel has more pull in Europe and she had issued a

:11:41.:11:44.

diplomatic readout of what she is thinking and wanted to happen as

:11:45.:11:46.

soon as possible because David Cameron may possibly be getting a

:11:47.:11:52.

little bit of support not least the ball from the nasty British tabloids

:11:53.:12:03.

`` least of all. Apparently the debate is becoming more toxic and

:12:04.:12:08.

she wants to act faster and shut us up. He does happen to lead the

:12:09.:12:14.

biggest group in the parliament and those are the rules. It sort of

:12:15.:12:20.

makes sense doesn't it? It makes sense. Am I being old`fashioned? Did

:12:21.:12:30.

you know about this when you cast your vote for the European

:12:31.:12:38.

elections? There was a World Cup angle to this story as well. Angela

:12:39.:12:43.

Merkel is so concerned about this issue that, is evening `` this

:12:44.:12:51.

evening, she was in the stadium supporting her country as they beat

:12:52.:13:02.

Portugal 4`0. So she is in Brazil? She is. It's clearly not a very

:13:03.:13:13.

pressing issue. Finally, district nurses face extinction in a decade.

:13:14.:13:22.

We were asking ourselves... There was a sitcom on television about

:13:23.:13:29.

district nurses from the 80s and who was the star of it? The woman who

:13:30.:13:45.

made her name in the. `` Liner Birds. District nurses are well

:13:46.:13:50.

loved in communities and are part of British life. We are told that they

:13:51.:13:55.

face extinction in a decade. The service has seen half of the

:13:56.:13:59.

district nurses quick in the past ten years and the gloom of district

:14:00.:14:08.

care will disappear over the next ten years and you cannot believe

:14:09.:14:11.

that this is a good thing. They are saying that it is being replaced by

:14:12.:14:20.

new arrangements with the NHS but I suspect that the salaries of

:14:21.:14:25.

district nurses are not the best. One of the strange things about it

:14:26.:14:30.

is that, the key things about the new structure of the NHS is

:14:31.:14:33.

delivering more care and people's homes so that they are not taking a

:14:34.:14:38.

possible beds so if this is a serious issue, with more political

:14:39.:14:45.

parties wanting to deliver care in homes, really they will need to get

:14:46.:14:49.

their heads together. The NHS is facing such a crisis. It is as

:14:50.:14:57.

simple as a population crisis. They really need to get it together and

:14:58.:15:01.

sort it out. Older people increasingly are saying that they

:15:02.:15:06.

want to be cared for at home. Indeed. It has been great having

:15:07.:15:16.

you. Many thanks. Stay with us here on BBC News: At eleven we'll have

:15:17.:15:20.

more on the situation in Iraq. But coming up next it's time for

:15:21.:15:21.

Sportsday.
