The UK is close to identifying a jihadist believed to have

:00:00.:00:00.

beheaded American journalist James Foley the British ambassador

:00:00.:00:00.

Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers

:00:07.:00:23.

With me are Tim Stanley from the Telegraph

:00:24.:00:26.

The Financial Times leads with a warning from a global watchdog

:00:27.:00:34.

about the growing danger of cyber attacks on financial markets.

:00:35.:00:39.

The Telegraph has one of our top stories this evening `

:00:40.:00:42.

the arrival home of a British aid worker with the ebola virus.

:00:43.:00:45.

The Foreign Secretary's warning about the possibility

:00:46.:01:15.

of an attack by IS in the UK , that is on the front page of the

:01:16.:01:19.

While the Guardian concerntrates on the forces ranged against IS

:01:20.:01:22.

Finally the Daily Mail has more detail on the transportation

:01:23.:01:25.

of that British aid worker from Sierra Leone to the UK.

:01:26.:01:27.

It has been quite an operation. Friend I look at this story, I want

:01:28.:01:39.

to ask, who is paying for bringing him over? Is it the RAF, is it an

:01:40.:01:44.

insurance policy, the agency for whom he is working? Goodness me, I

:01:45.:01:52.

sincerely hope we save him, he is obviously an extremely good person

:01:53.:01:57.

to have volunteered. But this every time a Briton falls ill

:01:58.:02:05.

Ebola. Why not? I hope they would do it for me. It is our lot of money

:02:06.:02:09.

and it makes you wonder, when are so many other things going on in

:02:10.:02:21.

the world, how is it being financed? It just seems to me a bit excessive.

:02:22.:02:31.

I am surprised by that I think is so fantastic `` I am surprised by

:02:32.:02:34.

that, I think it is a fantastic thing. It is heartbreaking that so

:02:35.:02:41.

many people are left behind. I think it is fantastic, like and `` and and

:02:42.:02:55.

SAS operation. It is extraordinary to see the setup we have got.

:02:56.:03:02.

Something rather space age. It makes it clear that if we have more than

:03:03.:03:09.

ten cases, nobody has got the equipment to deal with it. Again,

:03:10.:03:18.

that makes me wonder why we are bringing somebody who is carrying

:03:19.:03:22.

the virus into this country. It's not very easy to get it. I think we

:03:23.:03:28.

can... They are not going to introduce someone here thinking that

:03:29.:03:33.

might happen. I'm just asking. But I'm really proud we have done this.

:03:34.:03:40.

The contrast with all the people in West Africa, the kind of treatment

:03:41.:03:44.

they are getting, it is woeful. And we cannot stem this. Africa is

:03:45.:03:56.

improving enormously, but this kind of infrastructure issue, they have

:03:57.:04:03.

two address it. Let's turn our attention to Boris

:04:04.:04:11.

Johnson, and a call for the presumption of guilt. Again, I agree

:04:12.:04:19.

with what he is seeing. He is suggesting that anyone who visits

:04:20.:04:22.

Iraq or Syria through a third nation, through the back door, they

:04:23.:04:31.

should automatically have their civilian rights, or their rights to

:04:32.:04:40.

be a citizen removed. But he does not see what will happen. I agree

:04:41.:04:48.

that we need to do something. I'm not sure if this is the answer. But

:04:49.:04:53.

I think it is nice that he is being robust. I just think he says things

:04:54.:05:03.

better. He does, but they are not always right. I love Boris. But I am

:05:04.:05:09.

going to disagree with him. His first proposal is that people going

:05:10.:05:13.

overseas are to be presumed guilty. I know this is a very unique and

:05:14.:05:18.

difficult situation, but that is a total reversal of the principle of

:05:19.:05:22.

British justice, you are always presumed in the Saint `` innocent.

:05:23.:05:30.

And you cannot make somebody stateless under international law.

:05:31.:05:35.

It is illegal. 500 people are supposedly over the under British

:05:36.:05:40.

passports, I do not understand why, when they come back to Britain, they

:05:41.:05:46.

cannot be stopped at the border. I do not think it is necessary to make

:05:47.:05:54.

this kind of legal change. We are allowed to prosecute them here for

:05:55.:06:02.

acts in Syria so we can see that they are brought to justice when

:06:03.:06:06.

they come back. But I understand that need for an intervention, to

:06:07.:06:12.

stop that happening at all. To say we are so against this that we will

:06:13.:06:26.

introduce this. What we should do is have a passport for all the Isis

:06:27.:06:33.

fighters. It does not stop them from going there, it stops them from

:06:34.:06:39.

returning. Someone who wants to go and fight for Isis, you do not care

:06:40.:06:46.

if they are stateless or not. I don't understand why he can't be

:06:47.:06:49.

cold a traitor. You are abandoning your country, so you should be tried

:06:50.:07:03.

on that pretext. It is a legal minefield which is why I am against

:07:04.:07:11.

any dramatic prevision. If we had done this with the first lot who

:07:12.:07:15.

went out to a lack, on whose side we probably were, we would have

:07:16.:07:32.

supported them. The Guardian are talking about agencies being close

:07:33.:07:38.

to identify jihadists. The British ambassador to the US has said they

:07:39.:07:44.

think they have a good sense of who this man is. The man who murdered

:07:45.:07:50.

James Foley. If we find out who this person is, it is going to make us

:07:51.:07:57.

ask a lot of questions about what drives people to do things like

:07:58.:08:01.

that. He is so proud about his actions, he thinks it is a great

:08:02.:08:09.

honour, so why hide your face? Why do terrorists hide their faces? I do

:08:10.:08:13.

not understand why anyone hide their faces. It is close to home. It is

:08:14.:08:29.

just very interesting. That whole area has a definite more religious

:08:30.:08:39.

tension recently. You think, there are people down the road who hate

:08:40.:08:46.

enough... It is trying to draw that line. Our small number have been

:08:47.:08:56.

radicalised to take up the cause. And politicians are having a hard

:08:57.:09:04.

time with this. That is why it is difficult you do not prosecute

:09:05.:09:07.

someone for having beliefs that are not socially acceptable. When it

:09:08.:09:13.

tips over into inciting violence, you are breaking the law, and there

:09:14.:09:17.

are laws already in place about that. It is about a whole movement,

:09:18.:09:24.

a of thinking that got you there in the first place. What we are trying

:09:25.:09:32.

to do is work out where that germ starts, where does it start and in

:09:33.:09:44.

what way? There is a huge difference between being angry and going to

:09:45.:09:54.

behead people in the city. Let's turn our attention closer to home.

:09:55.:10:04.

Alex Salmond targets NHS for the second clash with the Darling. He

:10:05.:10:19.

just needs to turn up some facts. He thought last time he could turn up

:10:20.:10:26.

with jokes and it did not work. Alistair Darling just kept asking

:10:27.:10:34.

about the currency. He is apparently going to attack on the NHS. But what

:10:35.:10:41.

he is saying to the Scottish people is, if you do not vote for

:10:42.:10:45.

independence, you could be left with a Tory government for another five

:10:46.:10:56.

years. That is not an argument for voting for independence. It is so

:10:57.:11:03.

astonishing how he has moved away from making a romantic nationalists

:11:04.:11:08.

case for applying independent Scotland which I could understand,

:11:09.:11:12.

to just simply saying it is all saw the Tories. It is so cheap and

:11:13.:11:20.

divisive. But presumably he felt the appeal to people's arts is not

:11:21.:11:29.

enough. I am most curious to know how having a separate NHS in

:11:30.:11:36.

Scotland changes anything in terms of does make accident and emergency

:11:37.:11:41.

less crowded, does waiting go down in Scotland? If you leave the

:11:42.:11:54.

union, and you find you are in debt, which is the money come from

:11:55.:12:00.

to create this brilliant new NHS? You try and write it off. That is it

:12:01.:12:18.

from us for this are. We will look back at the life of Richard

:12:19.:12:22.

Attenborough at 11 o'clock. He has died at the age of 90. Coming up

:12:23.:12:25.

next, it is time for click. I really should not be telling you

:12:26.:12:33.

this, All right, what is happening

:12:34.:12:43.

is that the iPhone will...
