quarterfinals. We will have news of a big name sacking and rugby league,

:00:00.:00:00.

and they will have an update on Tyson day.

:00:00.:00:15.

Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers

:00:16.:00:18.

With me are Randeep Ramesh, Social Affairs Editor for the Guardian

:00:19.:00:26.

The front page of the Metro shows a picture of a con man who has been

:00:27.:00:43.

jailed for eight years because of a lottery scam. Large sections of the

:00:44.:00:50.

relevant work will be brought back into political ownership.

:00:51.:00:53.

Holiday`makers could be subject to long delays because of the latest

:00:54.:00:57.

terror threat according to the telegraph. The main picture on the

:00:58.:01:01.

Daily Mail is of a Canadian tennis player celebrating winning her

:01:02.:01:09.

Wimbledon semifinal. Let's begin. We start with the Guardian. Not showing

:01:10.:01:15.

any preferential treatment. The headline is, plan for competitive

:01:16.:01:19.

bids with private sector when contracts come up for renewal. It is

:01:20.:01:24.

not an automatic assumption that any section will fall back into the

:01:25.:01:29.

hands of the state, but they are going to have a look and see what

:01:30.:01:33.

the best option would be. Ed Miliband raised this earlier on when

:01:34.:01:37.

he took over leadership of the Labour Party by saying that it was

:01:38.:01:41.

absurd that other European state owned railways owed bits of our

:01:42.:01:44.

railway, and I think he was referring to the Dutch railway

:01:45.:01:48.

making rockets of the British and seamers, so it has been a theme.

:01:49.:02:00.

This worker making profits off the British's trains. Who is going to

:02:01.:02:07.

bid for these things? It will cost the public purse quite a bit of

:02:08.:02:12.

money to do so. The actual bidding process can cost you ever it is,

:02:13.:02:15.

weather it is the state or private companies, between ?5 million in ?10

:02:16.:02:21.

million just to bed. If the government were to bid for all of

:02:22.:02:25.

them, a lot of money might go down the drain. I have sympathy with Ed

:02:26.:02:29.

Miliband's point about it being galling that foreign private

:02:30.:02:34.

companies who are owned by foreign governments are making a lot of

:02:35.:02:40.

money out of successful British Railways. We pay for expensive

:02:41.:02:46.

tickets and it is lining the pockets of foreign governments. We all were

:02:47.:02:49.

member that fiasco just two years ago when the government completely

:02:50.:02:57.

messed up and got the sums wrong and had to go groveling back to Richard

:02:58.:03:02.

Branson and apologise and there were expensive legal fees. They could not

:03:03.:03:08.

possibly do any worse than they did, and also, since that one particular

:03:09.:03:12.

line, the East Coast Main line was taken back, and that has actually

:03:13.:03:17.

been very successful, and that is now washing its face quite

:03:18.:03:23.

respectively. You can see the attraction. I can't help but feel

:03:24.:03:27.

there is a bit of mischiefmaking. In a week when Labour was repositioning

:03:28.:03:33.

itself as friendly to business, you get a story about nationalizing the

:03:34.:03:38.

railways. There seems to be some internal politics. This is not an

:03:39.:03:42.

authorised leak, this is someone saying there will be an announcement

:03:43.:03:46.

and the party said this is pure speculation. He get the feel of a

:03:47.:03:51.

family insider... Someone sticking their finger out to see which way

:03:52.:03:55.

the wind is blowing. It has residents. It says in the article

:03:56.:03:59.

that it would have to provide a fair deal to the taxpayer and not amount

:04:00.:04:03.

to a return to purchase rail, because it is easy to forget how

:04:04.:04:07.

much people complained when we have nationalised rail. The service was

:04:08.:04:15.

terrible and as days best record in those days. Growth in population and

:04:16.:04:22.

to assure acro in those days. The amount of passengers will grow in

:04:23.:04:25.

the next 20 and 30 years, and there is a lot of money to be made there

:04:26.:04:30.

all stop although, the railways of yesteryear were nothing to shout

:04:31.:04:33.

about, as anyone who travelled on them will tell you. Especially the

:04:34.:04:40.

sandwiches! Another look at what could be a Labour policy. Not yet

:04:41.:04:45.

formulated yet, just another admission by Labour all stop Europe

:04:46.:04:52.

is a big hurdle for they brought `` for Labour. It is about confidence

:04:53.:05:02.

in immigration. Labour have been apologizing for getting a lot wrong

:05:03.:05:05.

and that seems more in that vein. Sorry is the easiest word in a lot

:05:06.:05:11.

of ways. These are comments that were made at a progress group

:05:12.:05:15.

meeting about a month ago, so I am guessing that he did not imagine

:05:16.:05:18.

that they would end up on the front page of the telegraph. It clearly

:05:19.:05:22.

must have been off the back of the local elections. He talks about

:05:23.:05:27.

being on the doorstep. What was the big issue at local elections?

:05:28.:05:33.

Immigration. He is saying that it is not clear that their policy and

:05:34.:05:38.

immigration in Europe is not clear to the voters come and it has to be

:05:39.:05:42.

the right edition, but he does not seem to go any further than that. He

:05:43.:05:46.

is putting some blame at the door of Ed Miliband, and he cannot predict

:05:47.:05:52.

any other way. If it is not clear, who is it that is muddying the

:05:53.:05:56.

issue? Labour have a problem over Europe. They do not have a position.

:05:57.:06:01.

They would probably like to be pro`European but they saw the

:06:02.:06:04.

demolition job that happened to Nick Clegg and probably do not want to go

:06:05.:06:10.

there. Internally, there was a battle between Douglas Alexander and

:06:11.:06:15.

Ed balls and that which is why we have Labour having a position on it.

:06:16.:06:20.

It seems as if there is a pitch partially being made to the

:06:21.:06:23.

post`2015 world of Europe being an important issue and part of a

:06:24.:06:29.

referendum and saying, I am missing a trick here, which seems a little

:06:30.:06:34.

inside Westminster. Is it a little bit of criticism towards Ed Miliband

:06:35.:06:42.

and a suggestion that maybe Andy Burnham might like to be the leader

:06:43.:06:45.

one day? Possibly. As you were saying, he probably never thought

:06:46.:06:51.

these things would come to light. It certainly looks like a bit of

:06:52.:06:56.

jockeying, doesn't it? Let's move onto the express. The madman plots

:06:57.:07:00.

to up jets with invisible explosives. This is the story we

:07:01.:07:04.

have been talking about all day, the heightened the sense that something

:07:05.:07:09.

is afoot, the involving, credible threat, is what we are being told,

:07:10.:07:13.

and although nothing seems to have disrupted travellers to my there is

:07:14.:07:18.

apparently extra vigilance at the moment, but this suggests that there

:07:19.:07:23.

is one particular person. They have been trying to find one particular

:07:24.:07:27.

person for many years. He has been the number one target of the CIA for

:07:28.:07:31.

many years, and he has been reportedly killed many times, by

:07:32.:07:36.

drone attacks, firefights, his DNA has been checked and it was not

:07:37.:07:41.

him, so they have been actively been hunting him down. He is supposed to

:07:42.:07:46.

be the top bomb maker. Interestingly, a couple of years

:07:47.:07:52.

ago, we are being told that he was creating internal bombs, so suicide

:07:53.:07:55.

bombers would have bombs somehow inside their bodies, and that is why

:07:56.:08:00.

they were such a threat. The other things it seems to be laptops,

:08:01.:08:08.

airports doubletalk and laptops and making people... We all know that

:08:09.:08:12.

you have to put them in a plastic box and everyone has to turn them on

:08:13.:08:15.

and off, and you can see that there's going to be very

:08:16.:08:18.

time`consuming as they go into the summer period. The `` that is going

:08:19.:08:24.

to be. And very frightening. Depending on who you are travelling

:08:25.:08:27.

with and where you are going, the checks are so variable. You can

:08:28.:08:32.

almost swan through without much happening. And with other airlines,

:08:33.:08:36.

they really hold you up. We will find ourselves at Heathrow being

:08:37.:08:43.

held up the summer, I am convinced. Particularly if you are flying to

:08:44.:08:46.

the United States. Anywhere across the Atlantic. Having said that,

:08:47.:08:50.

there is this thing about perception here. This guy has been around for

:08:51.:08:56.

quite some time. He has been trying to blow up people in various ways

:08:57.:08:59.

for quite some time. He has been trying to blow up people in various

:09:00.:09:02.

ways for quite sometime. I'd think he had a go at the Saudi 's not too

:09:03.:09:05.

long ago with a surgically implanted bomb. He made his own brother a

:09:06.:09:13.

suicide bomb. Which blew him up. I don't know quite what the reality

:09:14.:09:20.

is, for the advice to change. If Washington asks for your help, I do

:09:21.:09:23.

not suppose London will say no to stop it is causing a lot of the

:09:24.:09:29.

structure. `` will say no. They would not just do it on a whim. This

:09:30.:09:33.

is a game that people are familiar with. We know he is a `` name that

:09:34.:09:41.

people are familiar with. We know he is a threat. A lot of commentators

:09:42.:09:44.

have said that it is all very well, but it is the intelligence that

:09:45.:09:48.

counts, the people that they are tracking, not the devices that they

:09:49.:09:53.

are trying to intercept, and we have to trust that post`9/11 that has

:09:54.:09:58.

improved, because there was a period after the Cold War where the CIA had

:09:59.:10:02.

about six people who spoke Arabic, and that is where they needed the

:10:03.:10:06.

intelligence, said that is what we are depending on. That brings us

:10:07.:10:10.

back to the very difficult areas that we have been treading through

:10:11.:10:14.

the last couple of years of phone interceptions, the use of drones and

:10:15.:10:19.

all of those things which should prevent people like this, but can

:10:20.:10:26.

often be scattered. Hindsight is a valuable tool with these things. You

:10:27.:10:29.

learn your lessons after they have happened. I think they have tied it

:10:30.:10:41.

in... The reason I've mentioned perception is, it seemed Elizabeth

:10:42.:10:47.

convenient with ISIS .org are a little bit convenient with ISIS ``

:10:48.:10:52.

it seemed a little bit convenient with ISIS, to talk about these

:10:53.:10:59.

measures. An unknown unknown as someone once said. More children are

:11:00.:11:02.

being bullied on the playground according to a survey into

:11:03.:11:08.

cyberbullying. The author of the report has found that 12% of young

:11:09.:11:13.

people questioned have been the target of cyberbullying compared

:11:14.:11:17.

with 9% who have been picked on face to face. It is so easy with children

:11:18.:11:22.

having access to the internet. It is so easy and things are changing so

:11:23.:11:27.

quickly. For any of us who are parents, the pace of change is

:11:28.:11:31.

difficult to keep up with. The same survey was done in 2010, and the

:11:32.:11:35.

figures have completely changed. It was up 16% back then he'll ported

:11:36.:11:42.

being bullied face to face `` who reported being bullied face to face

:11:43.:11:46.

and only 8% online. The picture has changed. My children are eight and

:11:47.:11:50.

six and do not have their own accounts, but they were are well

:11:51.:11:54.

aware, and fronts of theirs have Instagram and things, and I'd can

:11:55.:11:57.

see it all starting, they want to have their own e`mail and they want

:11:58.:12:01.

to be talking to their fronts, and it terrifies me. You have to be

:12:02.:12:08.

completely aware as a parent of what sites they are using and to know

:12:09.:12:12.

when it is becoming a problem. You can imagine teachers having to trawl

:12:13.:12:17.

this pretty soon, because the leading is an Ofsted issue, so

:12:18.:12:20.

cyberbullying is just a year or two away, if `` if this poll is to be

:12:21.:12:26.

believed. The spread of these devices, how cheap they have

:12:27.:12:30.

become, it it is kind of a nightmare a personal worst possibility. A

:12:31.:12:51.

depressing salary, a woman salary peaks at 34 but a man's salary will

:12:52.:12:58.

rise until he's 50. Over 40 years since the equal pay act was brought

:12:59.:13:06.

in. None of my friends and after having children what they did before

:13:07.:13:12.

having children. We tried to go full`time and we fail. Therefore we

:13:13.:13:18.

take a reduction in salary. Some of us are lucky to be able to afford to

:13:19.:13:23.

do that. For most women it does present real hardship and worry.

:13:24.:13:31.

When you're at home you worry about not being at work and when you're at

:13:32.:13:37.

work you worry about not being at home. We are both waiting to reach

:13:38.:13:43.

our peak but it's one of those issues that doesn't seem to be

:13:44.:13:46.

getting any better. No government policy seems to be able to fix the

:13:47.:13:53.

problem. What's the issue, is transparency? It's about childcare.

:13:54.:14:02.

My partner is a far better journalist then IM and she's doing

:14:03.:14:10.

the bulk of childcare. Women's and men's salary is the same until the

:14:11.:14:15.

age of 30. It's when you have children. Lots of statistics show

:14:16.:14:20.

that women can earn more when they are more junior. They tend to be

:14:21.:14:26.

paid more on merit. As you get older you start asking for pay rises and

:14:27.:14:32.

women don't tend to do it. So we can't have it all. Who would have

:14:33.:14:43.

thought it? We will be back at a slightly earlier time, 1125. Stay

:14:44.:14:53.

with us. We will have a look at the dangers facing the UK's borders. Now

:14:54.:14:57.

we've got the sports. Hello and welcome to sports day. The

:14:58.:15:21.

headlines: The 20`year`old Bouchard reaches a Wimbledon final. Welcome

:15:22.:15:28.

to Yorkshire. The Tour de France prepares

:15:29.:15:29.
