and are calling for their executive to resign. And Britain's new world

:00:00.:00:00.

record`breaking swimming star will be up later in sports day in 15

:00:00.:00:00.

minutes. Welcome to look ahead at what the

:00:00.:00:19.

papers will be us tomorrow. Let's have a look at the front

:00:20.:00:33.

pages. We are going to start a night with the daily Mirror. As you can

:00:34.:00:39.

see, there is a picture of the Prime Minister on holiday with the words

:00:40.:00:48.

Isis, what crisis? And on to the Independent, and we have a picture

:00:49.:00:51.

of President Assad, the Syrian president, and the headline says

:00:52.:00:55.

that the West are poised to join forces with President a sad. And the

:00:56.:01:03.

Daily Mail reading on what it calls a victory over the Cowboys. It says

:01:04.:01:10.

the Health Secretary will tomorrow announce free or cut`price hospital

:01:11.:01:14.

parking for those who are seriously ill. The Telegraph says that

:01:15.:01:22.

May will be announcing a 3`point plan to counter British Muslim

:01:23.:01:24.

extremists. Measures will include new anti`social behaviour orders to

:01:25.:01:27.

restrict radical behaviour and language. And, the search for the

:01:28.:01:36.

Jihad is John is the lead on the times, saying that counterterrorism

:01:37.:01:42.

police are preparing to raid several British homes to find out who killed

:01:43.:01:49.

James Foley. Those are the looked at the front pages, and not

:01:50.:01:54.

surprisingly Isis is continuing to dominate. We can start with the

:01:55.:01:58.

daily Mirror, it is a good headline, although some might argue that it is

:01:59.:02:03.

unfair to the Prime Minister. Having a bit of fun at the Prime Minister

:02:04.:02:07.

's expense, but there is a legitimate point that he has gone on

:02:08.:02:13.

holiday with this crisis on. He is allowed a holiday for me. I feel

:02:14.:02:17.

sorry for him, there are pictures of him in a wet suit on three of the

:02:18.:02:23.

front pages, and he is having a private time with his family, and

:02:24.:02:27.

they are trying to make him not look great in a wet suit, which he

:02:28.:02:30.

probably does not. The question on whether he should be on holiday not,

:02:31.:02:35.

well frankly he would have had to come back endlessly for various

:02:36.:02:40.

things, and this situation is there. He has gone away again, but it is a

:02:41.:02:45.

difficult time, and this summer has been a nightmare time news wise. And

:02:46.:02:50.

also politically for him it has been very difficult in terms of foreign

:02:51.:02:55.

policy. The headline writers working on this, Brian mess, and all at sea.

:02:56.:03:06.

I think there. But Alex is right, these are what the pictures like,

:03:07.:03:10.

they like to make the politicians look silly. The headlines are very

:03:11.:03:15.

good. I think probably, this is David Cameron's third holiday of the

:03:16.:03:22.

year, it is his 15th since 2010. I think the problem is is that for

:03:23.:03:26.

many people it seems like a few too many. But I agree that he is

:03:27.:03:31.

entitled to take a break and he has already interrupted this holiday to

:03:32.:03:37.

come back. I think we need somebody to have that sense that we do not

:03:38.:03:42.

constantly need to have people working like that. If you look at

:03:43.:03:51.

pictures of any American president, but also the British Prime Minister

:03:52.:03:55.

is, how much do they age during the time they take office? Actually some

:03:56.:03:59.

sort of fresh air, it probably gives him a bit of perspective. Maybe it

:04:00.:04:04.

is one holiday too many. And President Obama was pictured playing

:04:05.:04:10.

golf after the press conference with James Foley's parents. The Daily

:04:11.:04:15.

Mail has said it was a disgrace. There are people clearly upset by

:04:16.:04:20.

this. I think that is a bit excessive to call it a disgrace. The

:04:21.:04:25.

problem as well, if you think that you are Prime Minister, and if you

:04:26.:04:29.

are anybody that has political ambitions, you think that you will

:04:30.:04:32.

never go on the beach if you get in that job, you will just avoid it.

:04:33.:04:39.

Same story, but a different pitch and outlook, we can go to the

:04:40.:04:42.

Independent with the headline that the West is poised to join forces

:04:43.:04:46.

with the South. We have been speaking to several commentators and

:04:47.:04:49.

they are saying no, but it looks like this is increasingly being

:04:50.:04:56.

considered as a possibility now. The Independent has gone very hard on

:04:57.:04:59.

this. We have had Philip Hammond they very much this was not going to

:05:00.:05:04.

happen and he called the possibility of it poisonous, and obviously has

:05:05.:05:07.

also said that the enemy of my enemy is not my friend. The Independent

:05:08.:05:14.

has gone much harder than other newspapers. Everybody else has

:05:15.:05:17.

repeated the quotes. But one of the things they have pointed out,

:05:18.:05:23.

sources have claimed that the US is already covertly assisting the

:05:24.:05:27.

President Assad government by passing an intelligent about the

:05:28.:05:30.

exact location of the leaders. But obviously that is not the same thing

:05:31.:05:35.

as them being in an alliance. Joining forces is a very loose term

:05:36.:05:41.

I think. I think they have used it in its loosest term. People have

:05:42.:05:45.

been talking about perhaps if the West were going to launch some kind

:05:46.:05:50.

of rocket attack or whatever on Isis, they would perhaps warn

:05:51.:05:55.

President Assad said it were not in the same place at the same time.

:05:56.:06:00.

That is a long way from joining forces. They have also called it a

:06:01.:06:04.

shocking U`turn, I do not personally think if that is the case that that

:06:05.:06:10.

was due to the shocking U`turn. Think it is a stretch and it makes

:06:11.:06:15.

the headline. This is an article from the Home Secretary, Theresa

:06:16.:06:21.

May. ASBOs coming back into this but this will be a different form. You

:06:22.:06:27.

see that, the word, it arouses scepticism from everybody saying for

:06:28.:06:30.

goodness sake, we're not back with these, because they do not work and

:06:31.:06:33.

do not have any effect. We think they are to do with noisy

:06:34.:06:37.

neighbours, but we are talking here about terrorists that slit people 's

:06:38.:06:42.

throats. It is a very different thing, and it is an incredibly

:06:43.:06:47.

difficult problem. This is... As Theresa May has said, we are in the

:06:48.:06:51.

middle of a generational struggle against a deadly extremist ideology.

:06:52.:06:56.

But what you cannot do is say that we are just targeting one group of

:06:57.:07:02.

extremists. This has to encompass all extremism from all religions of

:07:03.:07:07.

all political persuasions. Where do you draw the line? It is incredibly

:07:08.:07:11.

difficult to police. We all know what the ultimate aim needs to be,

:07:12.:07:16.

it is just really hard to work legislation that can cover that. And

:07:17.:07:20.

no surprise going to the Telegraph with this for the Home Secretary of

:07:21.:07:25.

course. But these ASBOs, the anti`social behaviour orders,

:07:26.:07:29.

looking to restrict extremist behaviour and language. As with an

:07:30.:07:32.

ASBO, it could result in a criminal conviction carrying a jail term. I

:07:33.:07:36.

suppose once again, it is always going to have to be the burden of

:07:37.:07:41.

proof with those things. Absolutely. And one of the other things they are

:07:42.:07:45.

doing is making it illegal to join these extremist groups that preach

:07:46.:07:49.

violence views but are not involved in terrorism. Some people were

:07:50.:07:52.

asking why has that not happened already? And as well, other people

:07:53.:07:56.

will go the other way and say actually, what is going to happen is

:07:57.:07:59.

quite right, we are going to have to get the burden of proof, and it is

:08:00.:08:03.

going to be very high. And that will be very tricky. Plenty more in the

:08:04.:08:09.

Telegraph on the inside pages with that Terry is a article. Onto a

:08:10.:08:16.

different story, but one that has been the second highest Tory for

:08:17.:08:21.

most news bulletins for a long time. We have to turn to the Daily Express

:08:22.:08:29.

to get there. The comment is that Hamas will pay heavy price for the

:08:30.:08:33.

death of this boy. There is no doubt that Israel is saying that it has

:08:34.:08:36.

not finished yet with its so`called operation protective edge. We have

:08:37.:08:45.

to get to the last sentence of this story to work out that about 500

:08:46.:08:50.

Palestinian children have been killed in this conflict in Gaza.

:08:51.:08:54.

This is obviously horrific that the four`year`old boy has died, but the

:08:55.:08:58.

death toll is an always on the other side too. Obviously much bigger on

:08:59.:09:03.

the other side. The other thing in this story is about Hamas shooting

:09:04.:09:09.

people that they are claiming our informants for Israel, and that is

:09:10.:09:15.

obviously a horrific thing that took place. It is interesting with Hamas

:09:16.:09:23.

and Isis, they have an incredible fear of spies, and a lot of internal

:09:24.:09:30.

unrest. Also another story here about the Conservative friends of

:09:31.:09:37.

Israel asking David Cameron not to support the commission of enquiry

:09:38.:09:40.

that is investigating breaches of international humanitarian law. This

:09:41.:09:50.

has already called for those to be put on trial for the humanitarian

:09:51.:09:56.

court. They say that this is not going to be neutral or not biased in

:09:57.:09:59.

his judgement, and they are asking that he does not support his

:10:00.:10:05.

improvement. And you see that that they are overrun over the coming

:10:06.:10:09.

days with other newspapers. It is quite an interesting aside. Yes, it

:10:10.:10:14.

is still a mess. A lot more to do with both Hamas, Israel and also the

:10:15.:10:20.

Isis situation in most of the papers. A very different story in

:10:21.:10:24.

the Daily Mail. Yes there is the Prime Minister again, but the main

:10:25.:10:28.

story there is victory over the parking cowboys. It interesting that

:10:29.:10:34.

the Daily Mail and the Daily Express are claiming that this is their

:10:35.:10:40.

victory. There is a serious point behind this, if you are going to

:10:41.:10:44.

visit summary that is seriously ill, you can end up paying a lot in

:10:45.:10:47.

parking at hospitals and they have been campaigning to stop that. This

:10:48.:10:51.

has been a long`term Daily Mail campaign, not so sure how long the

:10:52.:10:55.

express has been doing it but the Daily Mail have been pushing it. If

:10:56.:10:59.

you have a long`term condition, the number of tests that you might be

:11:00.:11:02.

going into hospital for and then paying through the nose for is very

:11:03.:11:07.

unfair. One of the things that is very marked this August is that we

:11:08.:11:12.

have had all of these domestic stories, normally August is quite a

:11:13.:11:16.

dead time, but all of these domestic stories have been kept off the front

:11:17.:11:20.

pages, and now obviously they have chosen this story. But in general we

:11:21.:11:24.

have had an awful lot of very important foreign stories. But there

:11:25.:11:32.

has not been that very quiet period. It has taken a back`seat. More

:11:33.:11:36.

precisely this is about the people that impose the fines, saying the

:11:37.:11:41.

criticism is far too large and sometimes small parking

:11:42.:11:45.

infringements get heavily penalised. They are also talking about paying

:11:46.:11:48.

for parking when you leave, you only pay for the amount of time you be

:11:49.:11:52.

there. The last time I was in hospital, I made really good friends

:11:53.:11:55.

with somebody else because we were feeding the meter at the same time

:11:56.:11:59.

every hour because we had no idea how long we were going to be. We

:12:00.:12:03.

were pretty close seven hours later feeding the pound coins into the

:12:04.:12:09.

thing. It is not fair and especially when people are often incredibly

:12:10.:12:12.

stressed that those times, the last thing you need is to come out and

:12:13.:12:15.

see that you have got a ticket on your car or whatever. They need to

:12:16.:12:19.

sort it out, they are sorting it out. They will obviously have to

:12:20.:12:22.

come up with some kind of permit think that the people that are

:12:23.:12:26.

visiting long`term ill patients that have regular visitors because how

:12:27.:12:30.

would you know who is visiting who? There are publications in working it

:12:31.:12:33.

out but at least they are addressing it because it has been a real

:12:34.:12:38.

problem. So we have that in the Telegraph, here we are talking about

:12:39.:12:41.

Jeremy Hunt here pre`empting something in the Daily Mail. The

:12:42.:12:52.

thing about newspaper campaigns, they reason, they love when they get

:12:53.:12:57.

a victory, it is important to show your front pages have achieved

:12:58.:12:59.

something, the Daily Mail must feel happy. It an important thing. We

:13:00.:13:09.

have time for the last one, the Daily Telegraph. Looking at the

:13:10.:13:14.

bottom right of the front page, give children smaller plates. A call from

:13:15.:13:19.

the head of Public Health England. In the battle against the BCT, it is

:13:20.:13:29.

suggested we could shrink plate sized `` against the problem of

:13:30.:13:39.

overweight people. It works with dogs. You can get these things for

:13:40.:13:44.

dogs, food is difficult to get. It takes them longer to eat it, they do

:13:45.:13:48.

not guzzle it, we could do that for children. Putting the food in

:13:49.:13:55.

puzzles. It sounds like a zoo. It is the same principle. Eat less and be

:13:56.:14:05.

more mobile, that is news. Some more headlines coming in and about one

:14:06.:14:10.

hour, but that is it for this hour. Thank you. Stay with us, at 11

:14:11.:14:16.

o'clock we will have the latest on the crisis in Iraq as the Foreign

:14:17.:14:21.

Secretary rejects calls to work with President Assad to tackle Islamic
