Hello and welcome to our look ahead at what the papers will be bringing

:00:19.:00:24.

us tomorrow. With me is the brighter and political commentator Jo Philips

:00:25.:00:36.

and Nigel Nelson. Schoolboy to Jihadist is the headline on the

:00:37.:00:50.

Mail. The same story on the Sunday Telegraph of the two brothers who

:00:51.:00:55.

left a British suburb to fight in Syria. The Independent is talking

:00:56.:00:59.

about fighters from Syria who are now back in the UK. David Cameron is

:01:00.:01:07.

under fire for his inability to stop Jean`Claude Juncker from becoming

:01:08.:01:12.

chief of the European commission. Support for Ed Miliband in the

:01:13.:01:24.

Observer and apparently 17 million of us are due to receive

:01:25.:01:27.

compensation from airlines for delays over the past 15 years or so

:01:28.:01:38.

says the Sunday Express. Let's start with this one, the claim that 3000

:01:39.:01:41.

fighters from Syria are now back in the UK. That isn't good news, is

:01:42.:01:50.

it? Know and if you go to the actual story on the inside, it is quite

:01:51.:02:03.

bad. This is from and my six `` MI6 and a report is coming out from

:02:04.:02:08.

someone who has been tracking the Taliban and other fighters over the

:02:09.:02:16.

past ten years and worryingly, he says that the Syrian war is likely

:02:17.:02:22.

to be an incubator for a new generation of terrorism and more

:02:23.:02:26.

than 12,000 foreign fighters have gone to Syria since the war began.

:02:27.:02:33.

10,000 went to Afghanistan ten years ago so that is considerably more

:02:34.:02:38.

already in the last three years. It is quite grim. But Nigel, it is

:02:39.:02:46.

politically quite difficult to determine how to stop people

:02:47.:02:51.

travelling. If they are British citizens, they have the rights to

:02:52.:02:55.

come and go as they please and it depends what they have been up to

:02:56.:02:58.

when they have gone somewhere because they can be arrested coming

:02:59.:03:04.

back. I think this figure gives some kind of idea of the task that

:03:05.:03:08.

security services will be facing in monitoring 300 people which would be

:03:09.:03:18.

a mammoth task `` 3000. If you are looking at each one, the only thing

:03:19.:03:24.

they can do is try to find out which of those pose the greatest risk

:03:25.:03:28.

because all of them will pose some kind of a risk on the basis of where

:03:29.:03:37.

they have been. . This one talks about the schoolboy to the Jihadist

:03:38.:03:41.

and it is an image that is going to pop up quite a bit. There he is at

:03:42.:03:50.

school in 2010 and on the right he is apparently in this ISIS video

:03:51.:03:54.

which came out last week and this will lead to a lot of discussion

:03:55.:03:57.

about how happy and contented people can't seem to be. Who was it to got

:03:58.:04:06.

to him? What did he read or see or watch? Or was he in that state of

:04:07.:04:13.

teenage angst where they become very idealistic and passionate and

:04:14.:04:17.

something just takes them away. It could almost be an identical story

:04:18.:04:22.

about a kid who has gone from being happy and well balanced to becoming

:04:23.:04:28.

a victim of drug culture because, in a way, someone has helped him get

:04:29.:04:36.

there and enabled him to fulfil this desire that he has presumably got to

:04:37.:04:40.

go out and do something and become a fanatic like this.

:04:41.:04:50.

I think that it is the image on the front of the paper that shows a

:04:51.:04:59.

happy schoolboy, turned into a jihadist with an AK`47 around his

:05:00.:05:05.

neck. What made it happen? Social media? Peer pressure? Or is there

:05:06.:05:10.

somebody out there actively recruiting? If you are profiling or

:05:11.:05:16.

spotting people, you wouldn't say... He looks like a perfectly

:05:17.:05:22.

ordinary kid. The Sunday Times. Here is an intriguing story. MH370 pilot

:05:23.:05:30.

quotes chief suspect. Who is telling us this? This is the police over in

:05:31.:05:37.

Malaysia and what they are saying is, the trouble with this story is

:05:38.:05:43.

every little snippet is adding another clue. We still have no idea

:05:44.:05:47.

what happened. What they are suggesting is he is the chief

:05:48.:05:51.

suspect because he made no social or work commitments after the flight

:05:52.:05:57.

while the rest of the crew did. I am not sure that is what you call

:05:58.:06:00.

conclusive evidence. Maybe he is a guy who did not plan ahead. That is

:06:01.:06:05.

what they are suggesting. Investigation is centring on the

:06:06.:06:09.

pilot. Again, even if it does, why did he do it? Was he working with a

:06:10.:06:16.

lot of? The way this whole story has gone, we will be having this

:06:17.:06:21.

discussion in one year, two years, ten years time. Until they find some

:06:22.:06:26.

wreckage, it will be very hard. Remember all the stories about the

:06:27.:06:37.

new tribal? It the same. `` Bermuda Triangle. Another story that has

:06:38.:06:43.

caught your attention, British troops to fat to fight. It's because

:06:44.:06:51.

the food is so good. Nigel and I have both eaten in barracks abroad.

:06:52.:06:58.

They do have fantastic food because army cooks are great. More than

:06:59.:07:06.

32,000 soldiers! The way they were cutting back order the Armed

:07:07.:07:10.

Forces, that is a serious figure. Eva is two and they not fit to

:07:11.:07:14.

fight, we have a real problem. What they are talking about is they are

:07:15.:07:18.

Sega Camp Bastion, one place where I have been to eat. They would cook

:07:19.:07:24.

breakfast there, pizza. The one thing about travelling with the Army

:07:25.:07:30.

is a seem to not just light on their stomach, the fly, stale `` sale, and

:07:31.:07:37.

people are throwing food at you. There's not much else, is there?

:07:38.:07:42.

Division to do, you are expending a lot of energy. You need to put

:07:43.:07:48.

calories in one ad... Where is the sergeant saying, Nelsen, you are

:07:49.:07:54.

getting a bit porky! I do expect them to be quite fit. Certainly,

:07:55.:08:02.

give them food if they are slimmer, strong, tough and going out into

:08:03.:08:09.

action. If they are lying around sort of... Obese. You would think

:08:10.:08:14.

the sergeant major would do some in about it. Cut the calories down

:08:15.:08:22.

slightly. The chairman of the obesity Forum says, I would have

:08:23.:08:26.

thought it was the job of the army to keep them fit. A fair

:08:27.:08:32.

observation. I can hear soldiers across the country throwing things

:08:33.:08:37.

at the TV saying I do not know what you are talking about! Serious

:08:38.:08:44.

matters now. This is the state of Ed Miliband's leadership. The clinic

:08:45.:08:50.

has come out in support of him. He is about the only person who has not

:08:51.:08:59.

damped him with faint praise. It was Kinnock who famously had the

:09:00.:09:06.

Slightly better than having your Slightly better than having your

:09:07.:09:09.

photograph taken if you are Ed Miliband. Underneath all of these,

:09:10.:09:15.

there is a serious story that Ed Miliband is in a hole. He has become

:09:16.:09:22.

a victim. I think, not by his own making because I do not think he is

:09:23.:09:27.

as bad as he is made out to be. Unfortunate photographs. We were

:09:28.:09:32.

just talking about this that you do think, this is so Westminster, he is

:09:33.:09:39.

surrounded by all of these people and somewhere, somebody needs to say

:09:40.:09:45.

to him, just go for a walk. Go to an art gallery. Do something ordinary

:09:46.:09:50.

and get away from this obsessive being about everything you do is

:09:51.:09:57.

going to be picked over. Is this completely Westminster? Is Ed

:09:58.:10:02.

Miliband elite arrives in the way he seems to be... We lack he has been a

:10:03.:10:10.

political adviser, my impression of Ed Miliband is that he is great when

:10:11.:10:15.

he is himself. Very personable, great company, that is not saying

:10:16.:10:20.

that's enough to be Prime Minister but his personal qualities are his

:10:21.:10:29.

best assets. Just leave him alone and let him beams. Don't worry about

:10:30.:10:32.

all the messages you have to get across, just let himself across. You

:10:33.:10:37.

do so much better. That is why I agree, just take some time out and

:10:38.:10:43.

leave the advisers behind. This is the first time, obviously, we have

:10:44.:10:49.

had fixed term of Parliament. Everyone is so excited, looking

:10:50.:10:54.

forward to the next World Cup. All the ambitious advisers who hope they

:10:55.:11:00.

are going to be at the seat of government next May. They are all

:11:01.:11:04.

hurrying around and everyone is saying, I think you should do

:11:05.:11:10.

this... Everyone has a phrase... He wants to be the leader of the

:11:11.:11:15.

country! Should he be making decisions for himself. That is my

:11:16.:11:20.

point. You can end up having to many advisers and interestingly, his main

:11:21.:11:25.

advisers are all blokes which would suggest that is an awful lot of

:11:26.:11:32.

machismo competition going on. If you had a few... He needs to find

:11:33.:11:37.

his own self confidence to tell him to sod off and leave him alone. Can

:11:38.:11:45.

you lose `` use that word at 1130 was that the expression is well

:11:46.:11:51.

made. Let's look at The Sunday Express. 17 million of us. 17

:11:52.:11:58.

million! Are to get airline refunds. If we apply for it. I do

:11:59.:12:06.

not think they will be automatic. They have been trying to not pay us

:12:07.:12:14.

when they have flights delayed. They have been claiming that extra very

:12:15.:12:18.

circumstances have stopped play and flying, therefore we are not do

:12:19.:12:23.

compensation. There has been assisted in Europe whereby they

:12:24.:12:26.

should be paying as compensation. Now we are going to get it. This

:12:27.:12:32.

will cost the airline 's 6.3 billion. It found very much like the

:12:33.:12:39.

trouble the banks had... Exactly on the insurance staff. Where they will

:12:40.:12:46.

get the money, I am not sure. Gas. I will give you a clue. `` yes. Is a

:12:47.:12:55.

good story. Has it got legs? Has it got wings? It is not a lot of money

:12:56.:13:04.

but the point is, I think it is a big guy versus the little guy. This

:13:05.:13:10.

has been in the works since 2009. The companies have been diddling

:13:11.:13:22.

around, some bloke took one company to a small claims court and it has

:13:23.:13:27.

escalated. Sometimes, the ordinary person, it is not a lot of money,

:13:28.:13:40.

only ?350. Get rid of attacks. No time to mention that last story... I

:13:41.:13:45.

do apologise. There is something fundamentally wrong. Thank you both

:13:46.:13:54.

very much indeed. Do stay with us here on ABC News. At midnight we

:13:55.:14:00.

bring you the latest ` as details emerge about the British man filmed

:14:01.:14:02.

in an apparent Jihadist recruiting video posted online. But coming up

:14:03.:14:07.

next it's time for Sportsday.
