Welcome to our look ahead at what the newspapers will be bringing us

:00:21.:00:27.

tomorrow morning. Thank you for joining us. Time for a look at the

:00:28.:00:36.

front pages. The Metro reports on a young couple who it says were killed

:00:37.:00:39.

by a speeding car. The Telegraph says the tax system is penalising

:00:40.:00:42.

savers and home`buyers, who will soon pay more than drinkers and

:00:43.:00:50.

smokers. The journalist Peter Greste stares from the front of the

:00:51.:00:53.

Guardian through the bars of an Egyptian prison. It calls his

:00:54.:01:00.

detention a stunning blow to free speech.

:01:01.:01:03.

The Express catalogues the EU laws it says are ruining Britain. The

:01:04.:01:12.

Times says a hardline Muslim sect is now the fastest growing branch of

:01:13.:01:21.

Islam in Britain. The Mirror leads on the case of Gladys Wright, the

:01:22.:01:24.

elderly dementia sufferer whose carers were convicted of mistreating

:01:25.:01:27.

her at a care home near Bristol. The Independent says David Cameron is

:01:28.:01:29.

isolated among European leaders as they decide the next European

:01:30.:01:32.

Commission President. And the Mail says thousands of patients are being

:01:33.:01:35.

struck off by their doctors, who can't cope with the pressure on

:01:36.:01:45.

their surgeries. Starting with the Times. Peter

:01:46.:01:52.

Greste used to work for the BBC. He is now with Al Jazeera. He and his

:01:53.:01:58.

colleagues have been sentenced to prison for seven years for allegedly

:01:59.:02:02.

supporting the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. This is a horrible story. An

:02:03.:02:08.

award`winning Australian journalist along with two others, one of them a

:02:09.:02:13.

Canadian Egyptian. And one of the Egyptians was given a ten year

:02:14.:02:18.

sentence. This is completely unexpected. There has been no crime

:02:19.:02:22.

committed except for the fact that they were saying the wrong thing and

:02:23.:02:26.

that is that Abdel Fattah al`Sisi is having a complete crack down on what

:02:27.:02:30.

is being said and unfortunately, many say that it is even worse than

:02:31.:02:34.

it was under Hosni Mubarak, because at least then there could be descent

:02:35.:02:40.

of opinion and differences. This is not good and, of course, much of it

:02:41.:02:49.

is being directed at Al Jazeera because Qatar the network they

:02:50.:02:55.

support, or are seen to support, the Muslim Brotherhood. This is the

:02:56.:02:58.

Egyptian way at getting back at Al Jazeera and Qatar. Some people say

:02:59.:03:05.

that it is as if the Arab Spring never happened. It has gone from

:03:06.:03:12.

Arab Spring to Arab Winter. An awful picture of a journalist who is only

:03:13.:03:20.

guilty of trying to find the truth. And standing behind this mesh of

:03:21.:03:26.

wire. Journalists go to these countries to be a voice for people

:03:27.:03:30.

who don't have a voice. It is worrying that a country which three

:03:31.:03:35.

or four years ago was full of hope after the ousting of Hosni Mubarak,

:03:36.:03:40.

and had legitimate elections which did elect the Muslim Brotherhood,

:03:41.:03:44.

which was controversial, but they were legitimate, but now there was a

:03:45.:03:50.

coup and we have Abdel Fattah al`Sisi. This is not just happening

:03:51.:03:55.

in Egypt. We have seen a dimming the light the region. And how can we get

:03:56.:04:02.

information out of their? Even citizen journalists taking

:04:03.:04:06.

photographs and tweeting and so on will be very nervous about doing

:04:07.:04:09.

that. If it can be traced to them, what will happen? Where will be the

:04:10.:04:15.

international outcry for them as there is for these international

:04:16.:04:20.

journalists? And Peter Greste has a dislocated shoulder, has been forced

:04:21.:04:23.

to sleep on the ground, he need hospital treatment as well. There

:04:24.:04:28.

are humanitarian issues at stake and we have not heard anything from the

:04:29.:04:32.

regime. A number of dissenters have been complaining about the

:04:33.:04:36.

authorities and they have simply just disappeared and no one knows

:04:37.:04:40.

where they are. Staying with the front of the Times. British Muslims

:04:41.:04:43.

flock to jihadist hardline sects. There is a lot in this I would like

:04:44.:05:06.

to know more about. It started with this hardline sect within the Muslim

:05:07.:05:10.

community. And given what we have read about in the last couple of

:05:11.:05:14.

days about these young guys from Cardiff and elsewhere, and from

:05:15.:05:19.

other countries as well, travelling to Iraq and Syria to fight, it is

:05:20.:05:24.

worrying. We can take it acted the Trojan horse plot of possible

:05:25.:05:31.

infiltration in Birmingham schools. There is a kind of fear there which

:05:32.:05:39.

is a problem. That the vast majority of Muslims in this country are not

:05:40.:05:49.

extremists. They want to be part, and have the same values as many

:05:50.:05:56.

others in Britain. We should be alert. We should understand that

:05:57.:06:00.

there are or appears to be within some areas of the community, the

:06:01.:06:05.

Muslim community, adrift towards extremism. What it doesn't say is

:06:06.:06:10.

what, where this study took place, what was the scale of the study. It

:06:11.:06:16.

maybe this is inside the papers. I don't want to prejudge the Times. I

:06:17.:06:23.

don't know if we need the study. We have 400 or 450 British citizens

:06:24.:06:28.

going to fight. We don't need a study to tell us that something is

:06:29.:06:32.

going on, and it does appear that some of these mosques are having

:06:33.:06:35.

radicalisation through preachers or through Internet videos. And these

:06:36.:06:44.

particular hardliners have been known to preach through both the

:06:45.:06:51.

Internet and through mosques. And it is now hardline and is getting

:06:52.:06:55.

traction in the youth in this country for some reason, and likely

:06:56.:06:59.

in the United States as well. They are hostile to music, to television,

:07:00.:07:03.

even celebrating birthdays. You would think that that would be

:07:04.:07:07.

completely and to youth. That you are giving their music and

:07:08.:07:12.

television? If their parents told them to do that, they would say, no

:07:13.:07:18.

way. `` giving up. So what is attracting them, and what message

:07:19.:07:22.

should we be giving out to try and prevent them, to actually immunise

:07:23.:07:28.

them before they are getting this message, but also to have a way that

:07:29.:07:31.

parents can turn towards some group organisation to try and pull them

:07:32.:07:35.

back from the edge when they see some of these things happening.

:07:36.:07:39.

Because from the parents, that on television talking about this, they

:07:40.:07:43.

say they saw a change in the personality of their child, they

:07:44.:07:47.

knew something was going on. Is there a concern, Jason, that as a

:07:48.:07:51.

society, and maybe we should not know, is none of our business. We

:07:52.:07:57.

don't know what is going on in mosques. We don't know who owns or

:07:58.:08:01.

runs half the mosques in this country, how they are controlled and

:08:02.:08:05.

funded. A lot of that is very open eight on actually. Yes, and there is

:08:06.:08:13.

this sense of `` opaque. Yes, and there is this sense of isolation. We

:08:14.:08:19.

feel isolated from them, and they from us. I lived close to a mosque

:08:20.:08:27.

in Birmingham. You wonder what is happening there, you see these young

:08:28.:08:32.

boys going on. And you think how can I live so close to something and not

:08:33.:08:36.

know what happens there. So I understand this, but I suggest again

:08:37.:08:40.

and again that it is important that there is a lot of anxiety in the

:08:41.:08:47.

Muslim community about how they are portrayed. Because it reinforces

:08:48.:08:50.

prejudice rather than highlighting the real positive contribution they

:08:51.:08:55.

make to our society. One point made is that only two out of nearly 700

:08:56.:09:02.

mosques are controlled by moderates, or modernists, which is

:09:03.:09:07.

the term they use. Incompetent camera and savaged by a ally of the

:09:08.:09:18.

EU. `` Cameron is savaged by his allies over the EU. I am baffled by

:09:19.:09:24.

her strategy towards Europe and this whole row he has created over

:09:25.:09:38.

Juncker. I do not understand. He is almost doing it out of pragmatism,

:09:39.:09:43.

because he is being buffeted by his own back benches. The Eurosceptics

:09:44.:09:48.

in his own party, and the threat of UKIP. But it is true, isn't it? He

:09:49.:09:56.

is not the kind of man who is going to reform Europe. Why expand... What

:09:57.:10:03.

he wants to do is renegotiate the EU so he can go back in 2017 and hold a

:10:04.:10:10.

referendum, and say to people these are the reasons why we should stay

:10:11.:10:13.

in Europe, and I have achieved this goal. He knows better than anyone

:10:14.:10:18.

else that we need to stay part of the EU, if we don't want to become

:10:19.:10:22.

the granny flat of the continent. The thing is that every major

:10:23.:10:29.

political party in the UK is against Juncker. They are also against the

:10:30.:10:33.

price as. He may be isolated in Europe, he is very united at home.

:10:34.:10:40.

`` against the process. And the UK was right about the single currency,

:10:41.:10:44.

they are the fastest growing large economy in the EU, and so some

:10:45.:10:52.

people are going to state to stand by your principles. We have to move

:10:53.:10:59.

on, but I suspect he would have brought the leaders together on this

:11:00.:11:06.

issue, Mr Farage. He needs to say that these are the reasons why we

:11:07.:11:09.

are there. David Cameron should be much older. Other countries don't

:11:10.:11:14.

want Mr Juncker either. Going to the Daily Mail, thousands are told to

:11:15.:11:22.

switch GPs. I don't understand this. Is it that they can't have their GP

:11:23.:11:27.

because there aren't enough GPs, or they have to switch because there is

:11:28.:11:30.

an area that has more doctors than they currently have? Because I know

:11:31.:11:35.

that when I signed up for my GP they already indicated, first of all, I

:11:36.:11:39.

don't understand why you can't have your GP near where you work, which

:11:40.:11:42.

would save a lot of man hours, having to choose the GP closest to

:11:43.:11:47.

your home. But there's someone clearly in the area, but they are

:11:48.:11:51.

talking about some 95`year`old woman that is struck off from seeing her

:11:52.:11:56.

doctor? That's crazy. There is a combination of factors. The first is

:11:57.:11:59.

that we have this problem of an ageing population. It is putting

:12:00.:12:05.

pressure, a lot of pressure, on the social services. Particularly on the

:12:06.:12:10.

NHS. The second issue is that although they are training more

:12:11.:12:13.

doctors, if you talk to doctors, they don't want to become GPs. It is

:12:14.:12:17.

dull. They want to work in hospitals because they can do more research,

:12:18.:12:19.

it is more intellectually stimulating, and being a family

:12:20.:12:25.

doctor, although it should be a privilege, the majority of medical

:12:26.:12:28.

students are not interested. The third factor is that the whole

:12:29.:12:33.

reason that these government health reforms are needed is because we

:12:34.:12:36.

have an ageing population and health costs were going to rise. They

:12:37.:12:41.

needed to do something about it. It shows it is unravelling. They

:12:42.:12:45.

created these GP groups who manage their own budgets precisely so that

:12:46.:12:50.

they could cater for with greater freedom these problems. And they are

:12:51.:12:55.

not. They cannot cope. Now it has become disastrous. We will go

:12:56.:13:00.

finally to the sun, and the World Cup. St George 's cross. England

:13:01.:13:09.

home to three Lions. It hasn't been the best of World Cups for the

:13:10.:13:12.

England team. And if they lose tomorrow, against Costa Rica, I

:13:13.:13:16.

don't think that has ever happened. Losing all three games in the World

:13:17.:13:24.

Cup? Tony Parsons has hit the nail on the head. Some of these players

:13:25.:13:30.

are earning ?300,000 a week. And how good are they? They're useless. And

:13:31.:13:36.

the most shameful thing as always is sitting next to America, and her

:13:37.:13:41.

soccer team is going to do even better. The most watched soccer

:13:42.:13:46.

programme in America, the US Portugal game. Soccer, / football is

:13:47.:13:54.

really taking off in the United States. Germany on Thursday night

:13:55.:14:03.

will be tough, but if the US stays in, they will have totally converted

:14:04.:14:08.

America. Maybe they will still be interested in baseball. Why did they

:14:09.:14:14.

steal the word soccer for us to cover the game, either because of

:14:15.:14:20.

American football? Exactly. It would be too confusing. Well we can't have

:14:21.:14:24.

confused Americans. Americans, by the way, don't send me any tweets. I

:14:25.:14:30.

love America. I used to live there, I lived there for seven years.

:14:31.:14:38.

Baseball, rounders... We route for Britain, but if not, the US. Thank

:14:39.:14:46.

you for that, for letting us understand what is behind the

:14:47.:14:52.

headlines. Stay with us here on BBC News: At midnight we'll have a full

:14:53.:14:56.

report on that case involving the journalists in Egypt, which has

:14:57.:14:58.

provoked such international outrage. But coming up next it's time for

:14:59.:15:00.

World Cup
