See what the week ahead has in store where you live, there is much more

:00:00.:00:00.

weather waiting for you on the BBC weather website. That is it for me

:00:00.:00:21.

for now. Welcome to our lookahead to what the papers will be bringing us

:00:22.:00:25.

tomorrow. With me at the editor of the FT, and the Sunday Post's

:00:26.:00:30.

Westminster correspondent. Good evening to you both. We will speak

:00:31.:00:34.

to them in a moment. First let's take you through a sneak preview.

:00:35.:00:44.

The i's main headline is from the video from muslim jihadist group

:00:45.:00:46.

ISIS, released on social media today. That's also the lead in the

:00:47.:00:50.

Mail, which has more details about a man featured on the film, a young

:00:51.:00:52.

Briton from CardiffThe Telegraph reports that councils are to be

:00:53.:00:55.

banned from using CCTV cameras to enforce parking restrictions The

:00:56.:00:58.

Mirror reports that the Queen has bought a luxury helicopter for

:00:59.:01:00.

Prince William and Kate.The Times says the government wants to reduce

:01:01.:01:03.

mobile phone black spots in rural areas by allowing networks to be

:01:04.:01:06.

shared.The Guardian's top story is about growing anxiety within Labour

:01:07.:01:09.

party ranks over their leader's ability to win the next general

:01:10.:01:11.

election.The FT goes with Sainsbury's move into the discount

:01:12.:01:14.

retail market with their decision to open branches with Netto in Northern

:01:15.:01:17.

England.The Herald leads with Labour proposals for an elected senate to

:01:18.:01:20.

replace the House of Lords which would be included in their UK

:01:21.:01:40.

election manifesto. It is an interesting one. We will start with

:01:41.:01:44.

the Daily Mail. One of many papers focusing on some of the men in that

:01:45.:01:50.

video by ISIS, which hasn't been verified of course. But the BBC,

:01:51.:01:56.

like many papers, has spoken to the father of one of them. The Daily

:01:57.:02:02.

Mail has a lot of research and has tracked down a man is well and got a

:02:03.:02:05.

little more in his background. A headline is striking. And we also

:02:06.:02:13.

find out that he had a very bright future at him. Yes, that is probably

:02:14.:02:18.

the most striking aspect of this, is that we tend to think that people

:02:19.:02:23.

with a lot to look forward to, won't be going into Syria or Iraq. Or even

:02:24.:02:29.

feel very disgruntled in Britain. This guy seems to have had plenty of

:02:30.:02:37.

opportunities. He has four places at medical school to choose from, 12

:02:38.:02:44.

GCSEs. I don't know if it is a gap year, I'm not sure if he will come

:02:45.:02:50.

straight back from this into study, but he is not a no`hoper. What the

:02:51.:02:56.

Daily Mail also reveals, among other stories, is that parents don't know

:02:57.:02:59.

what is going on. Communities don't know what is going on, particularly

:03:00.:03:03.

with some of their young man when they travel abroad. Yes. There is a

:03:04.:03:09.

real gap in local intelligence, knowing what your kids are up to.

:03:10.:03:13.

Absolutely, because the recruitment is now happening via social media

:03:14.:03:19.

rather than the traditional methods. So it is not so much associated with

:03:20.:03:23.

individual mosques, problematic mosques or hate preachers or any of

:03:24.:03:28.

that kind of thing, it is happening in people 's bedrooms on their

:03:29.:03:33.

computers. You are saying it is difficult for parents to police

:03:34.:03:36.

because they are using social media in the privacy of the bedrooms, I

:03:37.:03:41.

suppose. I think so. It is a very individual, peer to peer way to

:03:42.:03:46.

communicate, via Twitter, uploading videos, and so on. His parents

:03:47.:03:54.

thought he was in Turkey. A very sad interview with the father, he

:03:55.:03:57.

thought he was travelling, thought he had got married in Turkey. He

:03:58.:04:02.

knew nothing of his whereabouts. And the next thing is this apparent ISIS

:04:03.:04:08.

official recruitment video. It seems that his younger brother may also be

:04:09.:04:12.

with him as well. If we as journalists can find out this must

:04:13.:04:16.

information within a few hours, you would think that MI5 and MI6 would

:04:17.:04:21.

already have that kind of information. Questions are raised

:04:22.:04:25.

over how much intelligence they have and what they are using it for. I

:04:26.:04:29.

suspect that is where the story might go next. Start asking

:04:30.:04:34.

questions about why MI5 were not on it. Before they get to Syria. There

:04:35.:04:41.

are about 400 of these guys out there. Half of them might come

:04:42.:04:45.

back. The security agencies are scrambling out to try and find out

:04:46.:04:51.

who they are and where they are. Because it is kind of scary. 400 is

:04:52.:04:55.

not an insignificant number. MI5 did tell the FT that half, 50% of their

:04:56.:05:00.

caseload is now currently concerned with combating this threat.

:05:01.:05:05.

Staggering. I mean, that shows the scale of the problem. Leeds they are

:05:06.:05:11.

taking this very seriously. And people are being questioned, people

:05:12.:05:14.

with dual nationality who are travelling to places like Syria and

:05:15.:05:18.

Iraq, they are questioning people when they return. Arrests have been

:05:19.:05:26.

made. Absolutely, and about 50% are expected to return. Moving on to

:05:27.:05:31.

other stories, the Times focuses on the nightmare for so many people. I

:05:32.:05:34.

have to say, without warning to embarrass them, just about to travel

:05:35.:05:40.

to America, realising that my passport needs reviewing and

:05:41.:05:43.

probably doesn't stand a chance. Even those who have managed to get

:05:44.:05:46.

through the extension scheme that the reason scheme that Therese M8

:05:47.:05:50.

has announced, aren't able to reach some of the countries they wanted to

:05:51.:05:52.

go to `` Theresa May. waiting for passports, this issue is

:05:53.:06:13.

not going to go away this summer. Extensions have been granted but 75%

:06:14.:06:19.

of countries will not accept them. China, India... They won't accept

:06:20.:06:28.

them. We are trying to get trade with these countries and yet our

:06:29.:06:32.

countries cannot get into them because of this passport backlog.

:06:33.:06:37.

And it is not cheap. The average cost of processing and issuing a

:06:38.:06:43.

travel document is just over ?60 but people have been charged over ?72.

:06:44.:06:50.

Absolutely. And the thought occurs that if the former had been better

:06:51.:06:55.

designed and not quite so complicated, they might be able to

:06:56.:07:02.

process them all quickly `` the form. It is notoriously awful, that

:07:03.:07:08.

form. And people might not put it off so much full of Sainsbury's in

:07:09.:07:24.

the Financial Times. Sainsbury's is joining these so`called supermarket

:07:25.:07:30.

wars. This is because companies like Lidl have been doing so well. The

:07:31.:07:34.

Financial Times describes Sainsbury's as relatively up`market.

:07:35.:07:40.

Quite nice. They are on the back but now in terms of trying to secure

:07:41.:07:49.

their position. `` back foot. They will be opening five Netto

:07:50.:07:59.

supermarkets. Netto are Danish. They were taken over by ASDA but are

:08:00.:08:03.

coming back with Sainsbury's. I'm not sure how this works. This is

:08:04.:08:10.

what we have come to expect from Sainsbury's, the slightly up`market

:08:11.:08:13.

supermarket. The larger supermarkets are now realising that it is not

:08:14.:08:20.

simply a matter of attracting people with less money, the poor end of the

:08:21.:08:27.

market. Stores like Lidl are now attracting middle`class customers.

:08:28.:08:32.

And they say that Japanese beef and lobsters are being sold in Lidl.

:08:33.:08:39.

Lobsters in the door and Japanese beef in Aldi. We already have a

:08:40.:08:46.

cheaper version of Sainsbury's. I always think that you pay for what

:08:47.:08:52.

you get. But it shows how commercials and advertising works

:08:53.:08:55.

because I feel uncomfortable not being able to find familiar brand

:08:56.:08:59.

names. So many brand names you have never heard of. It takes some time

:09:00.:09:04.

to get used to. This is a question of why these stores do so well. I

:09:05.:09:11.

think it is a lack of choice. If you want to buy butter, there it is, but

:09:12.:09:14.

there are not half a dozen different kinds of butter that cost varying

:09:15.:09:19.

different amounts. There is only one to try from. Another story on the

:09:20.:09:28.

front of the Financial Times. The Chinese are seeing red over the

:09:29.:09:32.

length of carpet rolled out for the arrival of the Chinese Premier. This

:09:33.:09:38.

is serious. True story. And this must be one of the stories of the

:09:39.:09:47.

day. There is a diagram. The Chinese felt that the carpet at Heathrow

:09:48.:09:52.

Airport was too short and, in fact, they measured it and it came up

:09:53.:09:58.

three metres short of expectation. And so they felt offended and they

:09:59.:10:04.

put in a complaint to Downing Street and David Cameron's chief of staff

:10:05.:10:11.

is said to have responded that he had other things to worry about,

:10:12.:10:16.

which probably was not very diplomatic to a very, very valued

:10:17.:10:23.

friend. When you are talking about billions of pounds of trade deals, a

:10:24.:10:27.

few metres and an apology is probably... They could find a longer

:10:28.:10:34.

carpet. When there is a visit like that from a foreign leader, there

:10:35.:10:37.

would be months if not weeks of negotiations about how it would

:10:38.:10:43.

work. It demonstrates the choreography that goes into these

:10:44.:10:47.

summits. It is remarkable. You will need whom, who will stand where, how

:10:48.:10:53.

long the carpet will be. I don't think we can understand until we

:10:54.:10:56.

have tried to do it ourselves just how crazy it can get. In the Times.

:10:57.:11:04.

An end to mobile phone blackspots across the UK. Presumably these are

:11:05.:11:09.

areas in the countryside where it is very difficult. There are still some

:11:10.:11:13.

areas in the cities where there are blackspots. An issue close to the

:11:14.:11:22.

Prime Minister is part, I believe. When he and his team get a black

:11:23.:11:25.

spot while travelling around the country, they are enraged and they

:11:26.:11:30.

reported and that might be what is feeding into this. A leader of a

:11:31.:11:34.

country unable to connect with the outside world. It might only be for

:11:35.:11:39.

a few minutes but a lot can happen in a few minutes. But will this cost

:11:40.:11:46.

us any more? It is interesting because the Prime Minister has been

:11:47.:11:50.

talking about potholes. Mobile phones, potholes and parking

:11:51.:11:54.

charges. Many things that bother people. However, often these things

:11:55.:12:01.

are not that simple to fix. The story mentions White House sources

:12:02.:12:04.

concede that competition issues remain. Will companies `` Whitehall

:12:05.:12:13.

sources concede that competition issues remain. Will companies be

:12:14.:12:18.

willing to share? There are a lot of votes in these rural issues. So

:12:19.:12:27.

cynical! It will work like when you go abroad, I suppose? When you go

:12:28.:12:33.

into the country, you have a choice of services and then when you join

:12:34.:12:39.

them, you get charged. Presumably you will not get much choice in that

:12:40.:12:43.

as well. If you are going from one area to another on a train, you will

:12:44.:12:51.

wrap up a bit of a bill, won't you? A problem with government. They say

:12:52.:12:55.

here is a problem, here is a solution. And then lots of problems

:12:56.:13:01.

follow on from that. Perhaps if it was that easy, it would have been

:13:02.:13:07.

done already. The Sun makes a desperate attempt to cheer up

:13:08.:13:11.

England fans. We won't sing it, don't worry cause top the lyrics are

:13:12.:13:20.

there if you want to sing along. England's football dream may have

:13:21.:13:23.

been squashed but we won't let that ruin things, says the Sun. Only four

:13:24.:13:34.

years until the next one. I thought what would have been good would have

:13:35.:13:37.

been a cut out and keep black armband. We have the Euros a few

:13:38.:13:49.

years away. We have a young team who will mature and we have some who

:13:50.:13:54.

will be leaving as well, but there is the chance Roy Hodgson can turn

:13:55.:13:57.

it around, if he is still the man in charge. If. We will see after the

:13:58.:14:04.

Costa Rica game if he is still in charge. We have all been here

:14:05.:14:08.

before. We go through this every four years. Somehow the World Cup

:14:09.:14:13.

carries on without England and often improves. The Sun has given a list

:14:14.:14:18.

of other sporting events to look forward to over the summer. Andy

:14:19.:14:20.

Murray goes into Wimbledon next week. The Commonwealth Games are

:14:21.:14:27.

coming up. There is the golf and the British Grand Prix. More things to

:14:28.:14:30.

look forward to possibly more sources of misery. But not the

:14:31.:14:37.

weather. It will be the hottest summer ever. Scientists say! Thank

:14:38.:14:47.

you. Thank you, Sue Matthias and James

:14:48.:14:51.

Millar. Stay with us here on BBC News. We will have the latest on

:14:52.:14:59.

Iraq and suspected militants as violence continues to engulf the

:15:00.:15:02.

country. Coming up next, it's time for World

:15:03.:15:04.

Cup Sportsday.
