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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


Briton from CardiffThe Telegraph reports that councils are to be


banned from using CCTV cameras to enforce parking restrictions The


Mirror reports that the Queen has bought a luxury helicopter for


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


Absolutely, because the recruitment is now happening via social media


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


individual mosques, problematic mosques or hate preachers or any of


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


already have that kind of information. Questions are raised


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


caseload is now currently concerned with combating this threat.


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


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


with dual nationality who are travelling to places like Syria and


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


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


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


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


to America, realising that my passport needs reviewing and


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


through the extension scheme that the reason scheme that Therese M8


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


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


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


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


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


countries cannot get into them because of this passport backlog.


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


you get. But it shows how commercials and advertising works


because I feel uncomfortable not being able to find familiar brand


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


work. It demonstrates the choreography that goes into these


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


talking about potholes. Mobile phones, potholes and parking


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


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


concede that competition issues remain. Will companies `` Whitehall


sources concede that competition issues remain. Will companies be


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


Murray goes into Wimbledon next week. The Commonwealth Games are


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


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


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


you. Thank you, Sue Matthias and James


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


Iraq and suspected militants as violence continues to engulf the


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


Cup Sportsday.
