from London part in another eventful day of athletics. That's in 15

:00:00.:00:00.

minutes after the papers. Welcome to look ahead to what the

:00:00.:00:22.

papers will bring us tomorrow, in the company of Kevin Schofield chief

:00:23.:00:27.

political correspondent at the Sun and Kate Devlin, Westminster

:00:28.:00:30.

correspondent at the Herald. Tomorrow's front pages, starting

:00:31.:00:35.

with the Telegraph, leads with the Ebola outbreak in Africa. Warning

:00:36.:00:39.

the virus could reach the UK, the photo is Lewis Smith, part of team

England who won gold at the Commonwealth Games today. Same

credits make the headlines, Ukraine. In the mail, migrant tax

:01:10.:01:12.

credits make the paper claims Britain is spending ?5 billion on

:01:13.:01:19.

the benefits. A dramatic picture on the front page of the Independent,

:01:20.:01:24.

an explosion in the centre of Gaza. It also has a headline saying this

:01:25.:01:27.

has been the darkest day yet. Let's begin with the front page of

:01:28.:01:41.

the Daily Telegraph. Ebola, it has been sneaking up on us the story

:01:42.:01:45.

because we ignore it as a disease, that is solely consigned to West

:01:46.:01:48.

Africa but suddenly there is this dreaded feeling it might be coming

:01:49.:01:53.

to Europe. This is a pretty terrifying story that is on the

:01:54.:01:57.

front page of the Telegraph. Given the weight about who the warnings

:01:58.:02:00.

coming from, this is from the government 's chief scientist. There

:02:01.:02:04.

is the potential for it to reach the UK. It is obviously still quite a

:02:05.:02:11.

low risk. We've seen since the spreads to Nigeria a bit more

:02:12.:02:16.

concern about the fact it might reach here. There are lots of people

:02:17.:02:21.

coming to Britain from Lagos, Nigeria, the sort of places. Lots of

:02:22.:02:28.

traffic back and forth to Europe. One of the most chilling warnings

:02:29.:02:34.

from the scientist is we got lucky with SARS, the last pandemic we were

:02:35.:02:40.

warned about. We were fortunate that was not a lot worse. Since then,

:02:41.:02:43.

there has been great connections there has been great connections

:02:44.:02:47.

between continents and the risk is much higher. It is still quite a low

:02:48.:02:56.

risk but GPs have been warned to be on the guard and out for symptoms.

:02:57.:03:01.

Professor David Hinman from the centre of global health says a lot

:03:02.:03:03.

of people, the airlines are relying of people, the airlines are relying

:03:04.:03:08.

on people who are travelling to be honest and say they feel ill and

:03:09.:03:13.

shouldn't travel but most people won't say that, they will get on a

:03:14.:03:19.

plane and it could be like a Hollywood horror film a potent

:03:20.:03:24.

incumbent on professionals here to spot it because they might not be

:03:25.:03:29.

familiar with the bowler because they do not treat it day`to`day. ``

:03:30.:03:35.

it is incumbent. There are questions about how quickly to deal with it if

:03:36.:03:41.

it reaches us. Hugh Pym into an, the leading expert in this country on

:03:42.:03:46.

if we have the hospitals to isolate if we have the hospitals to isolate

:03:47.:03:50.

this disease. `` Hugh Pennington. Another story on the front page of

:03:51.:03:56.

the Telegraph, don't let the taxman sees cash from the bank accounts.

:03:57.:04:02.

This is probably the most controversial part of George Osborne

:04:03.:04:06.

's budget which was at the time generally pretty well received. The

:04:07.:04:11.

government will let the taxman be given the power if you don't respond

:04:12.:04:16.

to four former warnings from each see the taxman will have the power

:04:17.:04:23.

to go directly into your bank account to take out money. This

:04:24.:04:28.

throws up all sort of questions about Civil Liberties, the Institute

:04:29.:04:33.

of chartered accountants is saying it will damage public trust in the

:04:34.:04:39.

tax system. We are already in an era where there are added passwords and

:04:40.:04:42.

people hacking into their bank accounts. If the taxman himself will

:04:43.:04:49.

be given the power to go into your bank account it sets up a dangerous

:04:50.:04:55.

precedent. We're told this will only happen in exceptional circumstances

:04:56.:04:59.

but you can seek once the taxman gets a taste for it you can see it

:05:00.:05:07.

as a handy cash cow. `` you can see. Reagan's yet expanding. One of

:05:08.:05:13.

the concerns us whether we trust the government to get it right. But you

:05:14.:05:16.

can see it. Do we trust the Inland Revenue? Certainly the experts don't

:05:17.:05:21.

think they will get it right. There are situations and circumstances

:05:22.:05:24.

where things are contested. You get letters landing on your doorstep

:05:25.:05:28.

from time to time saying happy too much or too little tax, the taxman

:05:29.:05:32.

has already taken out of your account and you get a letter a few

:05:33.:05:37.

months later saying they shouldn't have. Then you go to the rigmarole

:05:38.:05:43.

of getting it back. It is open to allsorts of nightmares. The

:05:44.:05:47.

government is notoriously bad at this. All the government is

:05:48.:05:51.

notoriously bad at this. All stories is, figuring out how much owe them,

:05:52.:05:55.

it gets information from the Treasury telling it what whispers to

:05:56.:05:58.

be earning every year and months later saying they shouldn't

:05:59.:05:59.

have. Then you go to apparently that is always wrong. We will keep an eye

:06:00.:06:06.

on that. `` what we are supposed to be. The Financial Times, we've been

:06:07.:06:10.

reporting this might come your returning the screws on Russia, we

:06:11.:06:15.

had a statement from President Obama. What is the feeling within

:06:16.:06:20.

Westminster? Have they had enough today to put more pressure on

:06:21.:06:23.

Russia? They move very quickly and there was lots of suspicion at the

:06:24.:06:28.

time, your ribs leaders would talk to, they wouldn't follow through

:06:29.:06:33.

with action. They gone some way to proving a strong. `` Europe's

:06:34.:06:37.

leaders. It's not just always one`way traffic, the French who sold

:06:38.:06:42.

a couple of warships for 1.2 billion euros, have been given an exception.

:06:43.:06:47.

To the arms embargo which forms part of the sanctions. It's difficult to

:06:48.:06:51.

do otherwise with Russian sailors there already training. It's very

:06:52.:06:53.

true but it shows when it comes to, financially Russia still holds a lot

:06:54.:06:58.

of influence over a lot of European countries so there is a bit of a

:06:59.:07:03.

game of chess here on how far we can push the Russians to see what they

:07:04.:07:08.

will do. The team down the bottom, a perennial favourite, banker bonuses

:07:09.:07:12.

must be quarterback, with the Bank of England regime. This is not like

:07:13.:07:15.

the sanctions story, talk about talking tough, it appears to be a

:07:16.:07:18.

semi`climbdown from what they wanted to do. In March they were talking

:07:19.:07:22.

about clawing back after nine years now it is down to seven. They talked

:07:23.:07:26.

about making it retrospective as well, it doesn't look as if that is

:07:27.:07:31.

what's going to be announced tomorrow. I think there will be

:07:32.:07:34.

questions, the problem always was, because it has taken so long to get

:07:35.:07:39.

the economy started to recover, the the economy started to recover, the

:07:40.:07:42.

impetus for this measure would be lost and I think that is what

:07:43.:07:48.

happened. Let's have a low cut the front page of the Daily Mail.

:07:49.:07:55.

Migrants handed ?5 billion tax credits. You will remember yesterday

:07:56.:08:05.

or this morning David Cameron announced in this morning 's papers

:08:06.:08:10.

the length of time migrants from the EU will be able to claim

:08:11.:08:14.

unemployment benefits has been reduced from six months to three

:08:15.:08:18.

month, with a tough approach. Not in any way unconnected to the fact you

:08:19.:08:26.

can still doing well in the polls and causing a lot of trouble for the

:08:27.:08:31.

Conservatives. `` Ukip. They say this is not about benefits, it is

:08:32.:08:37.

about in work benefits, low`paid immigrants are receiving around ?5

:08:38.:08:42.

billion a year in tax credits which are essentially the government 's

:08:43.:08:48.

way of talking up those on low incomes. The government is trying to

:08:49.:08:55.

crack down on his coming here to claim benefits. This a lot of debate

:08:56.:09:00.

about how many do that. This is talking about people who have come

:09:01.:09:03.

here and are working and in many cases doing jobs that British people

:09:04.:09:09.

don't want to do. They are low`paid and therefore they're entitled to

:09:10.:09:15.

these tax credits in the same way as British people are. When they top

:09:16.:09:21.

them up they get better wages here than they were doing other European

:09:22.:09:25.

countries. That is the so`called pull factor so they're making the

:09:26.:09:29.

point... Going through these, let's have a look in the Guardian. They've

:09:30.:09:31.

been doing a number of things, in been doing a number of things, in

:09:32.:09:35.

Qatar workers paid 45p an hour to fill the World Cup stadiums. This is

:09:36.:09:39.

a series the Guardian has been running. Well done them for running

:09:40.:09:44.

it. The controversy has been around this Qatar getting the World Cup for

:09:45.:09:49.

months now. I think it is interesting. This story makes a

:09:50.:09:54.

mockery of Qatar 's claim it is not getting the

:09:55.:09:56.

interesting. This story makes a mockery of Qatar 's claim it respect

:09:57.:09:59.

it serves for holding the World Cup. The claim that workers are being

:10:00.:10:05.

paid 45p an hour. It does seem to have moved it on to British

:10:06.:10:09.

architect which is interesting. The Qatari firm has been quite strong

:10:10.:10:15.

and fast about this despite the international outcry. They are

:10:16.:10:35.

trying to enforce the regulations. But more than 100 workers have died

:10:36.:10:42.

on these project so far. A lot of them are dying of heart attacks or

:10:43.:10:45.

just committing suicide because they are getting low pay or no pay. The

:10:46.:10:52.

World Cup is still eight years away so heaven knows what the death toll

:10:53.:10:56.

will be. It is time for FIFA to actually act. 20 more to look at and

:10:57.:11:03.

we will talk to you both in an hour. `` plenty more. Join us for that.

:11:04.:11:15.

Stay with us here on BBC News. At 11pm, more than 100 Palestinians

:11:16.:11:21.

killed in the deadliest 24`hour is in Gaza since the conflict began but

:11:22.:11:25.

coming up next it is Commonwealth Games sports day.
