Coming up on the film review we will have a new offering from Marvel.

:00:00.:00:07.

That is with Jason Solomons. Hello and welcome to our look

:00:08.:00:15.

ahead to what the the papers With me are Philippa Kennedy,

:00:16.:00:18.

Ombudsman for the Sun and Vincent Moss, Political Editor

:00:19.:00:22.

of the Sunday Mirror. The Observer is leading with the SNP

:00:23.:00:27.

saying the success of the Commonwealth Games will encourage

:00:28.:00:33.

Scotland to back independence The Sunday Times servers Boris warns

:00:34.:00:50.

the primaries they must be ready to leave the EU.

:00:51.:00:54.

Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond's condemnation of the intolerable

:00:55.:00:56.

suffering in Gaza is the main story on the Sunday Telegraph.

:00:57.:00:58.

The Gaza conflict is also the top story for the Independent with the

:00:59.:01:01.

paper focusing on a row between the Conservative and Labour leaders.

:01:02.:01:05.

And the Mail on Sunday says Britain is to get its first NHS`funded

:01:06.:01:11.

national sperm bank, to make it easier for lesbian couples

:01:12.:01:13.

Let's begin. No surprise the papers continue to be dominated by Gaza. We

:01:14.:01:28.

will have a look first at all `` of all at the Independent on Sunday.

:01:29.:01:33.

Cameron and Miliband in furious row over Gaza. A political story.

:01:34.:01:38.

Vincent. Quite interesting, Ed Miliband has issued a statement,

:01:39.:01:43.

very strongly criticising David Cameron, saying he has not been

:01:44.:01:48.

critical enough of the Israeli attacks on Gaza, saying his silence

:01:49.:01:52.

over this issue has been inexplicable. It is very strongly

:01:53.:01:57.

worded. He is making the point David Cameron has not been quite as out

:01:58.:02:01.

there as he should have been, as Nick Clegg has been. He says it is

:02:02.:02:07.

intolerable and it has to be stopped. He has balanced that by

:02:08.:02:13.

saying it is intolerable also that Hamas had been attacking Israel. He

:02:14.:02:17.

said Cameron should be doing more, use currently on holiday. Number ten

:02:18.:02:22.

have answered this by saying they are shocked, they think Ed Miliband

:02:23.:02:29.

is playing politics with this issue. An old`fashioned political row, but

:02:30.:02:33.

David Cameron should step up to the David Cameron should step up to the

:02:34.:02:38.

plate and play a more leading role. David Cameron is on a flight. Yes,

:02:39.:02:44.

it looks like quite a tabloid headline. There is a big Cameron and

:02:45.:02:50.

Miliband in furious row. In fact, Mr Cameron has not said anything, you

:02:51.:03:00.

spokesman has. It is quite strongly worded. To get any political leader

:03:01.:03:04.

interesting in the current climate. interesting in the current climate.

:03:05.:03:09.

I do not know if you want to go on to go onto the Telegraph piece, the

:03:10.:03:11.

Philip Hammond piece is to go onto the Telegraph piece, the

:03:12.:03:15.

Philip much more on a humanitarian... We can look at that

:03:16.:03:22.

next. Hammond condemns intolerable suffering in Gaza. That is the angle

:03:23.:03:28.

most papers have taken. I have been watching the news all week like

:03:29.:03:31.

everyone else and I find it really hard to watch without crying. It has

:03:32.:03:38.

been the most awful, pounding of emotions for viewers, for anybody

:03:39.:03:46.

with any interest... Watching children with their eyes tight

:03:47.:03:50.

closed, please let it go away, it is really hard to watch. It seems to me

:03:51.:03:59.

the PR battle has been won by the Palestinians, by Hamas, until the

:04:00.:04:06.

Israeli lieutenant was captured. Then it slightly swung the other

:04:07.:04:10.

way. They say they have no knowledge of it. What was the Second

:04:11.:04:16.

Lieutenant doing wandering around on his own? From a military point of

:04:17.:04:21.

view I find it very hard left tenant is captured. Normally it is a stray

:04:22.:04:27.

soldier. These pictures playing out across the world. `` tenants at the

:04:28.:04:31.

ability for anybody outside the situation to be able to do anything

:04:32.:04:35.

about it. That is what the political row was about. I think everybody is

:04:36.:04:40.

incredibly disturbed, as Philip Hammond points out. I think a lot of

:04:41.:04:45.

the public especially in England are taking the view, hang on, that are

:04:46.:04:48.

civilians out there, children out there, you have to have a

:04:49.:04:53.

cease`fire. It has to happen. It is no good saying they are bombing us.

:04:54.:05:00.

I think that is why the Ed Miliband interventionists and interesting. He

:05:01.:05:03.

is Jewish, it is his background club his heritage. He is saying, he

:05:04.:05:10.

almost seems to be saying while not condemning Israel can hear saying

:05:11.:05:13.

the Prime Minister has to take a stronger lead on this. And it is

:05:14.:05:18.

time something has to happen. In a sense he is trying to push the Prime

:05:19.:05:23.

Minister into a no`win situation. He is. Nobody can ever solve this

:05:24.:05:28.

situation, we hope someday can one day. It has taken years and years.

:05:29.:05:33.

Until Israel sits down at the table but they will not do that. The whole

:05:34.:05:38.

of the Middle East is in this manner strum of war and disagreement. We

:05:39.:05:43.

are now seeing a ratcheting up of the pressure on the Prime Minister,

:05:44.:05:48.

who unfortunately for him is in Portugal on a sun lounge. Everyone

:05:49.:05:54.

is entitled to a holiday, but this is a major complication and we have

:05:55.:05:59.

a situation where we are not seem to be too involved. You and I mentioned

:06:00.:06:03.

the timing about this holiday. Is the comment from the Labour Party

:06:04.:06:08.

deliberately timed for the moment the Prime Minister steps away, to

:06:09.:06:11.

make it more difficult for him to come back? I think Matt is part of

:06:12.:06:16.

it. I'm sure Ed Miliband is about to take a holiday as well. `` think

:06:17.:06:20.

that is part of it. The Middle East is in a terrible situation, there

:06:21.:06:27.

might be demand to recall Parliament because there are problems all over.

:06:28.:06:32.

Even the bowler crisis. Serious problems than it does not look good.

:06:33.:06:46.

`` the bowler `` Ebola crisis. Now this story on the NHS. The fact that

:06:47.:06:52.

many hospitals now have fast food restaurants or coffee bars on site.

:06:53.:06:56.

Which is a revenue raiser for them, but questions about the type of food

:06:57.:07:01.

they are serving. This is an extraordinary story. The poor people

:07:02.:07:04.

who go to visit their relatives in hospital. They want to have a cup of

:07:05.:07:10.

Coffey may to have something quick because they do not want to be away

:07:11.:07:15.

from their relatives too long. `` cup of Coffey. We are grown`ups, we

:07:16.:07:21.

can decide what we are going to eat. Furious because they are selling

:07:22.:07:26.

discounted chocolate. You get a drink, a sandwich, a sugary drink

:07:27.:07:33.

and a bar of chocolate as well. This is absolutely disgraceful. But it

:07:34.:07:37.

tends to while away the time. If you have ever spent any kind of time at

:07:38.:07:42.

the hospital bedside of a relative, as I know you have been in seeing

:07:43.:07:49.

your mother. The argument seems to be the presence of certain

:07:50.:07:52.

companies, a bakers that sells pasties, a fast food takeaway

:07:53.:07:58.

chain, another firm telling these foot long bag gets. `` French bag

:07:59.:08:07.

gets. That is the row, that it is a wrong type of food. If you are in a

:08:08.:08:13.

hospital, most people I have seen just have tea and Coffey. They do

:08:14.:08:19.

sell tea and Coffey, but it is not compulsory. What you want when you

:08:20.:08:22.

are in hospital visiting a relative is convenient. You might want a cup

:08:23.:08:32.

of tea or coffee. I would rather you could get it in the hospital than

:08:33.:08:36.

walking 15 minutes down the road to get it. If they get some revenue

:08:37.:08:42.

from that, that is fine. There is an argument against Coffey bars and

:08:43.:08:44.

burger bars. I think there is a difference there. I have a view

:08:45.:08:47.

about a temp I think you have to be sensible

:08:48.:09:00.

about these things, you need a place to have a coffee or a cup of tea. It

:09:01.:09:06.

is find they are there and hospitals get some revenue from it. A separate

:09:07.:09:10.

argument being made that we should eat more healthily. We started with

:09:11.:09:17.

some awful stories, let's move to some bright ones. The Commonwealth

:09:18.:09:21.

Games. This is on the front of many papers. On the Observer, the front

:09:22.:09:25.

page dominated by picture of Nicola Adams, who has taken gold in the

:09:26.:09:30.

women's flyweight boxing. My fellow countrywoman. You are going to rub

:09:31.:09:37.

that in. She think she won that fight. It went down to a split

:09:38.:09:45.

decision. Yes. The story that the Observer quite extraordinarily is

:09:46.:09:50.

running as their lead story, is that they believe the success... Nicola

:09:51.:09:54.

Sturgeon, the Deputy First Minister, believes the bounce effect

:09:55.:10:00.

of the Commonwealth Games will benefit the yes vote and the Scots

:10:01.:10:08.

will vote yes in the referendum. Everybody is feeling very good about

:10:09.:10:11.

themselves. The Commonwealth Games have been a great success, apart

:10:12.:10:15.

from the one remark or otherwise from Usain Bolt. Which he said he

:10:16.:10:22.

never said. However, that is the sort of thing... Sport is a

:10:23.:10:27.

wonderful thing of making people feel... I wonder if it knocks the

:10:28.:10:34.

story down a bit, sport and sport and politics is politics is the last

:10:35.:10:39.

quote. Yes it has been a successful games, will it turn the vote in

:10:40.:10:43.

favour of the yes vote? My instincts are probably not. Nicola Sturgeon

:10:44.:10:50.

would say that. She is running the yes campaign. It is not a surprise.

:10:51.:10:54.

That wonderful picture of Nicola Adams. I suspect in later editions

:10:55.:11:00.

it might be replaced by pictures of Usain Bolt or Tom Daley. Very brief

:11:01.:11:08.

bathing shorts. Have you been monitoring that? It is a lovely

:11:09.:11:14.

picture. It is an important story. Tomorrow is the closing day. Will

:11:15.:11:19.

Barack a vote yes, my instincts are probably not. Timing is everything.

:11:20.:11:25.

And an interview with Nicola Sturgeon saying momentum is in their

:11:26.:11:29.

favour. Closing tomorrow. By all accounts it has been a great

:11:30.:11:33.

success. Moving on to the Sunday Times, back with some less positive

:11:34.:11:41.

news. The Ebola story. The doctor's diary of hell in the heart of

:11:42.:11:48.

Africa. 720 lives so far lost in four African countries, set to get

:11:49.:11:53.

very worrying. Sadly we have not seen the diary. All we have is the

:11:54.:11:57.

front pages. This is the diary of a care worker, American, William

:11:58.:12:07.

Fisher. He has recorded his daily e`mails to his family. He goes in

:12:08.:12:14.

there in his suit to keep the germs away. Seeing the most frightful

:12:15.:12:20.

things. There is no cure for Ebola, bleeding internally. A little boy

:12:21.:12:25.

came into the hospital carrying his dead mother. Queueing up blood in a

:12:26.:12:34.

room on his own with nobody to comfort him. `` throwing up blood.

:12:35.:12:39.

It is awful. I health authorities are already saying it is very

:12:40.:12:44.

unlikely Ebola will come to this country, because it spreads via

:12:45.:12:51.

bodily contact. It is not as if it is a virus or a flu. Nevertheless,

:12:52.:12:57.

we were just talking about that. If that is happening in America,

:12:58.:13:05.

everybody would be in quarantine. `` if it happened. A lot of people are

:13:06.:13:11.

superstitious, they think the doctors are bringing it in, it is

:13:12.:13:16.

part of the issue. We have a similar story in the Sunday Mirror tomorrow,

:13:17.:13:19.

the diary of a different doctor, saying much the same thing. These

:13:20.:13:23.

people are dying without the comfort of the human hand. In a north London

:13:24.:13:30.

Hospital, if anybody came to England with that, how they would be looked

:13:31.:13:34.

after. It is astonishing to see there is a tent, people get suited

:13:35.:13:39.

up in the space age suits, it is very frightening. I have seen news

:13:40.:13:43.

items where people have come to London and said they are surprised

:13:44.:13:46.

at the lack of checks as people come into this country. In America... A

:13:47.:13:55.

change of pace, I want to try and get to ? la story. The headline in

:13:56.:14:01.

the times, you are hired. `` in the Times. She is your close friend. I

:14:02.:14:19.

was on a television show with Karren Brady and if she is indeed being

:14:20.:14:23.

elevated to the peerage, I cannot think of a better person. Just

:14:24.:14:27.

following her career in a very male dominated sport,

:14:28.:14:35.

she would be a concern peer but the person she helps `` she would be a

:14:36.:14:47.

Conservative peer. She is a respected businesswoman and great on

:14:48.:14:52.

the apprentice. Great choice. That's it for the papers this hour. We will

:14:53.:15:04.

be back for 1130 PM. Stay with us because at 11, the latest in the

:15:05.:15:07.

violence in the Middle East where any hopes of the cease`fire are

:15:08.:15:11.

fading.
