Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the

:00:00.:00:29.

With me are Zamila Bunglawala, a former government policy adviser

:00:30.:00:32.

who is now a fellow at the University of Manchester.

:00:33.:00:35.

And James Rampton, a features writer at the Independent.

:00:36.:00:37.

This is where friendships start! The Telegraph looks ahead to the

:00:38.:00:49.

announcement on fracking and says national parks and other valued

:00:50.:00:52.

parts of the countryside will be protected in an effort to head off

:00:53.:00:58.

and get in the Tory heartlands. The Guardian leads on fracking and says

:00:59.:01:02.

the government will invite firms to bid for onshore oil and gas licences

:01:03.:01:06.

for the first time in six years. The Daily Express claims a burst of two

:01:07.:01:12.

minutes of exercise a week is the easy way to beat ageing. The Daily

:01:13.:01:16.

Mail says that so`called cowboy parking squads roaming the high

:01:17.:01:20.

Street and hitting thousands of drivers with fans. The times says

:01:21.:01:25.

one in nine patients are waiting to see a GP cannot get an appointment.

:01:26.:01:29.

National parks to be saved from fracking, victory for the

:01:30.:01:36.

countryside campaigners. New curbs, yes, but it is not a complete veto,

:01:37.:01:40.

James, on fracking in national parks. Know, and being a cynic, the

:01:41.:01:50.

two words that leaked out, they are "Tory and marginal". `` leapt out.

:01:51.:01:54.

The Tories are frightened by their backbenchers who have been making a

:01:55.:02:02.

lot of noise about this. Sussex, the campaign created a lot of feet and

:02:03.:02:06.

people were arrested and I believe Caroline Lucas the Green MP was

:02:07.:02:15.

arrested. `` created a lot of heat. If they are fracking in the

:02:16.:02:21.

south`east they will be going through a lot of conservative

:02:22.:02:24.

constituencies, something they do not want to do. Somebody suggested

:02:25.:02:29.

doing it up North, which was suggested in the House of Lords, to

:02:30.:02:33.

universal derision. I'm cynical about it. It's great they are saying

:02:34.:02:36.

they are not going to do it in national parks, but they say that

:02:37.:02:45.

they may find masses of oil and gas there. Countryside campaigners have

:02:46.:02:55.

been very concerned about this. The Guardian's take on this, to flip it

:02:56.:02:59.

round the other way and saying that drilling will be allowed in national

:03:00.:03:03.

parks but there are conditions that would have to be met. Because it

:03:04.:03:07.

isn't a complete ban, there is always a chance. Exactly, it is not

:03:08.:03:14.

a manifesto commitment. It is going to be announced that we will not do

:03:15.:03:17.

it unless there is a lot of money to be found, in which case this

:03:18.:03:22.

exception will override everything they have said. It is important to

:03:23.:03:26.

say this but unless it is a manifesto commitment I would be

:03:27.:03:31.

quite cynical about it. We want cheap, secure sources of energy,

:03:32.:03:36.

don't we? Not at any price. So the lights go out? We are still

:03:37.:03:44.

importing a lot. I can it is quite relevant at the moment in the wake

:03:45.:03:47.

of the horrendous crisis unfolding in the Ukraine, Russia provides so

:03:48.:03:54.

much gas to Western Europe. I think it provides 60% of Germany's gas. We

:03:55.:03:59.

almost being held hostage by the Russians and the Germans and French

:04:00.:04:04.

are being accused of being too pusillanimous towards the Russians

:04:05.:04:07.

because they are worried about the taps being turned off. If we become

:04:08.:04:13.

self`sufficient, energy security, then that would be the ideal but

:04:14.:04:16.

there are many hurdles to overcome before then. Pusillanimous! You

:04:17.:04:23.

always raise the bar! Showing off, it's called. Frank Arnold was

:04:24.:04:30.

talking about vainglorious lest the other day. Ukip may win more than 9%

:04:31.:04:38.

of the vote in the general election, the suggestion that it

:04:39.:04:42.

millet and can become Prime Minister. Surely it depends where

:04:43.:04:47.

that 9% is concentrated `` Ed Miliband. Labour are desperate,

:04:48.:04:53.

hoping that Ukip does better, so that Miliband is given the keys. I

:04:54.:04:58.

think that is a disastrous story. There is movement in the marginals,

:04:59.:05:01.

votes are going to swing in a different direction. We don't know

:05:02.:05:06.

if Labour supporters will go in a different direction as well so they

:05:07.:05:09.

are not accounting for the movement. It appears that if Ukip do well, the

:05:10.:05:13.

Conservatives will suffer more than Labour. 50% of the Tory voters went

:05:14.:05:21.

to Ukip and only 70% of Labour. Cynicism again here, if Labour are

:05:22.:05:25.

encouraging people almost tacitly to vote for Ukip, that's very

:05:26.:05:32.

hypocritical because Ukip are diametrically opposed to Labour and

:05:33.:05:35.

certain people like Ed balls are saying that they should be

:05:36.:05:40.

attacking. If some elements so that they shouldn't because they may win

:05:41.:05:44.

some seats, that is extreme cynicism and to me it says that Labour

:05:45.:05:49.

if this is the heart of their if this is the heart of their

:05:50.:05:54.

campaign, it fits in with the bacon sandwich scandal, holding up the

:05:55.:06:03.

front page of the Sun. It sounds defeatist and gimmicky. Ukip has yet

:06:04.:06:10.

to win a seat in our elections. Exactly. Takes a cynic to spot a

:06:11.:06:15.

cynic! The Guardian, cease`fire pledges but no end to the more

:06:16.:06:19.

violence today despite a series of cease`fire announcements which I'm

:06:20.:06:27.

finding it quite difficult to keep track of. We had the extension, then

:06:28.:06:29.

we were going to get another 24 hours, but the ground offensive

:06:30.:06:34.

would continue even if the missiles stopped, and both sides blaming each

:06:35.:06:39.

other. We will have to redefine what cease`fire means because neither

:06:40.:06:43.

side knows how long it's supposed to last for. In this case, it is

:06:44.:06:54.

peaceful because it is Ede, it will be a respite for the people in

:06:55.:07:01.

Palestine. It is a big day in the calendar. Children, women, babies

:07:02.:07:07.

losing their lives, it is hard to see how the cease`fire is going to

:07:08.:07:11.

make any difference. Desperately sad. I agree, reading in the

:07:12.:07:16.

Telegraph that the Pope has waded in. I don't always agree with him

:07:17.:07:22.

but he said "look at the number of children", I think 200 have been

:07:23.:07:28.

killed on the Palestinian side already, 1500 injured. Terrible

:07:29.:07:33.

numbers. President Obama has weighed in as well and said there must be an

:07:34.:07:37.

immediate cease`fire. I agree with both of them. This cannot continue.

:07:38.:07:42.

The Guardian, looking at the photo on the front. Trott winning the

:07:43.:07:54.

gold, Laura Trott, shaking off a kidney infection to win Commonwealth

:07:55.:08:00.

gold. Katie Archibald is on the left for Scotland, taking bronze. The

:08:01.:08:03.

home nations are doing fantastically well. It is fantastic for the women.

:08:04.:08:08.

It is great because it is summer and many people are looking forward to

:08:09.:08:12.

this and enjoying the television, but the weather is great. I am very

:08:13.:08:19.

happy for them. It is known as the friendly games and that has people

:08:20.:08:25.

are sensing the exuberance on the streets of glass though. I was

:08:26.:08:29.

listening to the radio commentary and they were talking to people and

:08:30.:08:34.

everybody was so upbeat and excited `` on the streets of Glasgow.

:08:35.:08:40.

Talking about independence, it is a brilliant advert for Glasgow. It

:08:41.:08:44.

looks amazing, those incredible venues, and the human interest

:08:45.:08:48.

stories. Laura Trott said she has been unhappy because she has been

:08:49.:08:52.

eating porridge which she doesn't like Patsy won gold today `` but she

:08:53.:09:02.

won gold. It is a good story with a happy ending. She had a kidney

:09:03.:09:11.

infection but she won gold. She can the Daily Express, I hope this is

:09:12.:09:17.

true. Two minutes of exercise will help to keep you young. If you are

:09:18.:09:20.

finding it difficult to lose weight, this isn't autobiographical, then

:09:21.:09:26.

you need to do 30 seconds of vigorous exercise a day to get your

:09:27.:09:31.

metabolism going. This would seem to be something different, it is to

:09:32.:09:36.

stop ageing. People cut their blood pressure and improved performance in

:09:37.:09:44.

everyday tasks. Excellent if actually true. James would have to

:09:45.:09:47.

close if we only needed two minutes of exercise `` gymnasiums. If it

:09:48.:09:54.

stopped you ageing, you wouldn't need those creams, beauticians would

:09:55.:09:58.

go out of business. I think there is some truth to the idea that bursts

:09:59.:10:03.

of energy are good for you but normally it is a 20 minute cycle

:10:04.:10:11.

with a lot of other exercise. Two minutes of raising my eyebrows very

:10:12.:10:14.

vigorously at this story, the only exercise I can do when confronted

:10:15.:10:20.

with this story. That is the front page, I find it amazing. Will that

:10:21.:10:30.

give your wrinkles? Oh, no! We love your natural look, James. Thank you

:10:31.:10:38.

very much! The Daily Mail, the menace of the new parking cowboys,

:10:39.:10:43.

drivers find up to ?100 for staying a few minutes outside shops. This

:10:44.:10:49.

seems to be on Friday property and some of the tickets do not have

:10:50.:10:54.

proper legal authority. It says that but when you drill into the story,

:10:55.:10:59.

it says "in some cases without legal authority", a great Daily Mail

:11:00.:11:07.

story. Menace, cowboys, we always terrified of cowboys shooting us and

:11:08.:11:12.

in this case they are calling them bounty hunters as well. It seems to

:11:13.:11:17.

be the upshot of the outlawing of clamping on Private property in

:11:18.:11:21.

2012, so companies are using to is who can fine you up to ?100. It does

:11:22.:11:27.

not seem to be a universal story and I wonder if it falls apart in your

:11:28.:11:32.

hands. Upsetting if you have got a story when you have only over stayed

:11:33.:11:39.

by a few minutes tickets are already expensive. The idea that if you have

:11:40.:11:46.

only gone over a couple of minutes, and also they do not have any legal

:11:47.:11:52.

standing. Great friends already! Matchmaking arrangement here. They

:11:53.:12:01.

will be back at 11:25pm to look at the front pages. Stay with us.

:12:02.:12:09.

Coming up, Click. Hi, just to let you know I am

:12:10.:12:17.

male and I really like watches.
