first interview after a bribery trial. That is all in 15 minutes.

:00:00.:00:20.

Welcome to the Papers. With me are Rosamund Urwin of the London Evening

:00:21.:00:33.

Standard, and Alice Arnold, broadcaster. Tomorrow's front pages.

:00:34.:00:46.

'ISIS? What crisis?' the Mirror asks as it shows the Prime Minister

:00:47.:00:49.

surfing while on his holiday in Cornwall. The Independent also leads

:00:50.:00:51.

on the battle against Islamic State, and suggests that the West is about

:00:52.:00:55.

to join forces with President Assad of Syria.

:00:56.:00:57.

The Mail leads on what it calls a 'victory over the parking cowboys'.

:00:58.:01:00.

It says the Health Secretary will tomorrow announce free or cut`price

:01:01.:01:02.

hospital parking for those who are seriously ill.

:01:03.:01:05.

The Telegraph says Theresa May will announce a three`point plan to

:01:06.:01:07.

counter British Muslim extremists. Measures will include new

:01:08.:01:09.

anti`social behaviour orders to restrict radicalists' behaviour and

:01:10.:01:10.

language. The search for 'Jihadi John' is the

:01:11.:01:14.

lead on the Times. The paper says police are preparing to raid the

:01:15.:01:17.

homes of several Britons in an attempt to find out who killed US

:01:18.:01:20.

journalist James Foley. The FT gives prominence on its front page to what

:01:21.:01:24.

it says is a new low in relations between Moscow and Kiev after a

:01:25.:01:26.

Russian convoy crossed into Eastern Ukraine without permission. The

:01:27.:01:34.

Herald claims tensions are rising ahead of Monday's TV debate on

:01:35.:01:38.

Independence. It says the Yes and No campaigns are locked in a fierce

:01:39.:01:41.

battle over exactly how long Alex Salmond and Alistair Darling will be

:01:42.:01:49.

given to cross examine each other. Let's begin. We will start with the

:01:50.:02:03.

Daily Mirror. The headline is ISIS, what crisis? It is fairly

:02:04.:02:13.

unflattering to David Cameron. You would not want to keep doing that

:02:14.:02:21.

year after year. He is interrupted his holiday. He has returned to

:02:22.:02:33.

Cornwall now. You do wonder whether the Prime Minister really gets a

:02:34.:02:41.

holiday. It is a good thing that he gave to do something different. Do

:02:42.:02:57.

you agree? I do. Carl Turner be Labour MP, it says what a disgrace.

:02:58.:03:09.

`` the. They are scraping the barrel to find someone to say that because

:03:10.:03:14.

a lot of people are on holidays. It was probably the one hour a day that

:03:15.:03:18.

David Cameron had free and he probably spent the rest of the day

:03:19.:03:21.

of the phone at the computer and dealing with the big issues. I am

:03:22.:03:33.

sure it is not a peaceful holiday. The Daily Mirror go all out. There

:03:34.:03:40.

is obviously someone down their working overtime because it is in

:03:41.:03:50.

other papers. Independent arts other issues to talk about with the West

:03:51.:04:05.

joining forces with Assad. It is different depending on who you talk

:04:06.:04:10.

to. There has been this expression about your enemy's enemy being your

:04:11.:04:16.

friend. Or not. Opinion seem to differ. Whether there seems to be

:04:17.:04:24.

collaboration in terms of exchange of information, in order to try to

:04:25.:04:33.

destroy ISIS, but this one question. Joining forces with Assad is pushing

:04:34.:04:43.

the point. It says that US has already covertly assisted the Assad

:04:44.:04:46.

government by providing information about the whereabouts of Jihadi

:04:47.:04:56.

leaders. I don't know if we will get a shocking U`turn. As often as Assad

:04:57.:05:03.

is, it is quite sensible to give that information. `` awful. I think

:05:04.:05:12.

that is sensible and it helps what we are trained to achieve. ``

:05:13.:05:22.

trying. I don't think that means we are trying to help Assad. That is an

:05:23.:05:30.

overstatement. Philip Hammond city is not going to create poisonous

:05:31.:05:33.

alliance. I don't see that it is going to happen. We moved to the

:05:34.:05:41.

Daily Telegraph. They lead on government statements about to be

:05:42.:05:45.

made. They lead with the Home Secretary. She is launching a new

:05:46.:05:51.

raft of laws that aim to tackle radicalisation in the UK. We are

:05:52.:05:57.

seeing the return of antisocial behaviour laws. A British Muslim is

:05:58.:06:06.

suspected of doing that in Syria. The attention comes back to

:06:07.:06:17.

the country and what we are going to do a radicalisation. Theresa May

:06:18.:06:23.

talks about bringing back anti` radicalisation laws. It makes people

:06:24.:06:32.

think about noisy neighbours and ineffective legislation that never

:06:33.:06:34.

did any good. They are going to struggle. They are talking about

:06:35.:06:39.

restricting extremist behaviour and language. That is difficult to

:06:40.:06:49.

police. It is going to be difficult to join extremist groups that

:06:50.:06:53.

creature violent views but are not directly involved in terrorism. ``

:06:54.:07:08.

preach. What is a pilot for you? `` violent view. You have to make sure

:07:09.:07:13.

that you are doing this for all groups. This is going to be

:07:14.:07:17.

difficult. Otherwise it is going to be seen as an attack on the Muslim

:07:18.:07:26.

population. It is a three pronged approach. The Conservatives are

:07:27.:07:34.

trying to keep their papers on side. Jeremy Hunt is talking to the Mail

:07:35.:07:42.

about something else. The perception that a lot of people quite rightly

:07:43.:07:46.

have is that when we look at the numbers, more people have gone from

:07:47.:07:51.

Britain than other countries in Europe. There has to be a reason.

:07:52.:07:55.

That is because we have failed to address the problem earlier. I'm

:07:56.:08:00.

sure there are other reasons, but that is the perception. They have

:08:01.:08:04.

got to be seen to be tough. It looks like we have failed when other

:08:05.:08:08.

countries have done far better. Some of the quotes that are being

:08:09.:08:14.

attributed to Theresa May in this piece says we must do all we need

:08:15.:08:18.

and we must give ourselves all the legal powers. The language is

:08:19.:08:23.

tougher than what we might have hurt. `` heard. We have to look at

:08:24.:08:33.

the fact that this is a group of disaffected youth. They are

:08:34.:08:42.

desperate for a cause. They are vulnerable. We talk about young

:08:43.:08:49.

people being groomed for extremism. We have to look at more than new

:08:50.:08:53.

laws. We have to find out by that group is so easy to prion. `` why

:08:54.:09:07.

that group is so easy to prey on. People are scared that the stoop is

:09:08.:09:15.

good to come back from Syria. `` this group. She has got to sound

:09:16.:09:24.

tough. The other side is why is this happening? Why it did these people

:09:25.:09:31.

not feel like they are part of society? We will get the detail on

:09:32.:09:37.

that in coming days. To the Daily Mail. It is the health secretary

:09:38.:09:38.

that is being even `` given a plug. This is about the

:09:39.:09:56.

parking cowboys who give huge fines at hospital car parks. This is a

:09:57.:10:05.

long`standing issue. Should people who are long`term and hospital have

:10:06.:10:18.

to pay huge amounts? The fines are on sat and unjust. They seem to have

:10:19.:10:26.

won. They are going to have some kind of free parking. I don't know

:10:27.:10:32.

if they will make the fines smaller. They did go into the

:10:33.:10:45.

details. `` don't. I'm not sure how it will work, but everyone has

:10:46.:10:50.

agreed that it seems that people have found it unfair that they

:10:51.:10:55.

should be punished financially because they are ill. This is a

:10:56.:11:06.

campaign that the Mail have been claiming for themselves. It is

:11:07.:11:12.

always good to have a victory. They want something they can win. It is

:11:13.:11:20.

good. It was unfair and it has been addressed. To the Scotsman. This has

:11:21.:11:40.

been on social media. This is the ice bucket challenge. They are

:11:41.:11:49.

working overtime on the headlines for this. Wetter together. Alistair

:11:50.:12:01.

Darling has done it. Alex Salmond will have to do now. James McAvoy

:12:02.:12:10.

volunteered both of them. This has had a lot of attention. President

:12:11.:12:16.

Obama said he won't do it. It makes a lot of sense. If he does that, we

:12:17.:12:23.

not had to do other things for other charities. I wonder if another

:12:24.:12:31.

charity will come up with something else and it will all snowball. It's

:12:32.:12:38.

as it raises money, but it doesn't say is you how what races. You

:12:39.:12:42.

challenge someone and if they don't do it, they have to give ?100 to

:12:43.:12:49.

charity. Most people will do both. It doesn't look great if you say you

:12:50.:12:53.

don't want to give ?100, here, through water at me. `` throw. That

:12:54.:13:03.

doesn't reflect very well. To a happy story on page three. It is

:13:04.:13:17.

about dogs. This story is about dog looking like their owners. `` dogs.

:13:18.:13:27.

There was a quiz about which dog looked like its owners. Rosamund did

:13:28.:13:36.

well. I did very poorly. I have a dog, but I don't think he looks like

:13:37.:13:42.

me. He is small and has a lock of hair. `` lot. He is cute. Two out of

:13:43.:13:58.

three. I have an ex` racing greyhound. I wish I was as thin as

:13:59.:14:05.

my dog. The headline is disproved by the reality. David Beckham has the

:14:06.:14:17.

ugly one? He has the one in the bottom left that is not quite as

:14:18.:14:23.

pretty. It is one with a funny nose. I would not say that it looks

:14:24.:14:33.

like him. Apparently we like things that are familiar. We see ourselves

:14:34.:14:37.

the Mirror and we want a dog that looks like ourselves. At least we

:14:38.:14:44.

discussed about in detail. Stay with us, because at midnight we have the

:14:45.:14:54.

latest on the crisis in Iraq. Rejected calls to work with Assad.

:14:55.:14:59.

Coming up next, it is time for Sportsday.

:15:00.:15:11.

Hello and welcome to Sportsday. I'm Lizzie
