have a roundup of all of the capital cup results and the latest from the

:00:00.:00:00.

US open where Heather Watson has bailed to follow Andy Murray into

:00:00.:00:10.

the second rounds. That in 15 minutes, after The Papers. `` that

:00:11.:00:22.

is in 15 minutes, after The Papers. Welcome to our lookahead to what the

:00:23.:00:29.

papers will bring us tomorrow. With me are Henry Bonsu and Isabel

:00:30.:00:34.

Hardman. That have a look at the front pages. We were. With the

:00:35.:00:40.

Telegraph, which contains a story about the paedophile gangs preying

:00:41.:00:45.

on more than 1400 children in Rotherham over a 16 year period. The

:00:46.:00:55.

Guardian carries the same story and also a of Kate Bush to return to the

:00:56.:01:06.

stage after 36 years. The Financial Times carries a story about Burger

:01:07.:01:12.

King transferring its headquarters to Canada. And the Daily Express

:01:13.:01:21.

says Britain is now home to 2 million illegal in the. Let's stop

:01:22.:01:26.

with the Telegraph that leads with events in Rotherham turning a blind

:01:27.:01:33.

eye to sexual abuse. This is an horrific story. More than 1400

:01:34.:01:38.

children were abused over 16 years and the police and council bosses

:01:39.:01:47.

did not follow up allegations the fear of being labelled racist.

:01:48.:01:53.

Professor Alexis Jay has examined the failings in Rotherham and sheep

:01:54.:02:01.

paints a dreadful picture of the lives of children who were sexually

:02:02.:02:08.

abused. The list of failures is horrendous. It is huge and as the

:02:09.:02:17.

professor says, we may only be scratching the surface. It's just an

:02:18.:02:20.

estimate. We have seen cases like this before in Rochdale, Derby and

:02:21.:02:26.

Oxford. You can understand why the Daily Telegraph put it on the front

:02:27.:02:32.

page and other papers will do so. I sometimes think they speak with

:02:33.:02:37.

forked tongues. They get very upset about the stories. They are often

:02:38.:02:42.

the most honourable children that people don't care about. They have

:02:43.:02:47.

the kind of parents that these papers often rail against, quotes,

:02:48.:02:55.

feckless parents. It's all very well saying, why were these Asian men

:02:56.:02:59.

allowed to do this? It's because we didn't want to be called racist. But

:03:00.:03:06.

the key thing is why children were left unsupervised and why no one

:03:07.:03:09.

believes them and why police considered that sex between

:03:10.:03:14.

11`year`olds and grown men were consensual. Crazy. And that's why

:03:15.:03:20.

papers like the Daily Telegraph said outrage. The state is meant to be

:03:21.:03:28.

the parent that steps in when other parents can't care that their

:03:29.:03:32.

children. But these are the same papers that they do politicians, but

:03:33.:03:37.

out of family life because people can take care of themselves. Even

:03:38.:03:45.

those of us who believe in a state that shouldn't intervene, the state

:03:46.:03:49.

does have to be a parent in some cases and in this case they failed

:03:50.:03:53.

miserably, and so did the police. They are there to protect the

:03:54.:03:57.

vulnerable and they didn't do that for 16 years. That is a fair point.

:03:58.:04:03.

The council leader has stood down, others have apologise, the police

:04:04.:04:08.

have questions to answer as well. There are significant authority

:04:09.:04:11.

bodies that let these children down to an enormous degree. Absolutely,

:04:12.:04:17.

but one we examine it in more detail and look at the Council's role and

:04:18.:04:23.

why they didn't do what they were meant to do, we have to ask what

:04:24.:04:29.

would they have done with the information? They should have beefed

:04:30.:04:40.

up security at children's homes and the police should have been more

:04:41.:04:52.

involved. They can't say it's an Asian problem. We don't racialised

:04:53.:05:01.

paedophilia when 70`year`old entertainers are involved. It's

:05:02.:05:06.

because they thought they were going to be racist, in the same way people

:05:07.:05:17.

work nervous about reporting Jimmy Savile.

:05:18.:05:24.

Let's move on to the express. On page two AI making reference to the

:05:25.:05:36.

Gaza truce. I get the sense in our courage that this one feels a little

:05:37.:05:40.

different from the cease`fires we have had thus far. This one is being

:05:41.:05:47.

described as open ended. There is a sense there is an opportunity for

:05:48.:05:50.

both sides to attend something a little bit more long`lasting rather

:05:51.:05:55.

than waiting for the next set of rockets to appear over the border.

:05:56.:06:00.

Well, we said, thank God. At last they looked like something of a

:06:01.:06:04.

truce. This has been seven weeks long. We are talking about 2200

:06:05.:06:10.

people, the vast majority of Palestinians. It's a David versus

:06:11.:06:18.

Goliath one winds. We hope Gaza will be reconstructed and the

:06:19.:06:20.

humanitarian aid will come in freely, that the kind of blockades

:06:21.:06:24.

that have turned this place into an open prison camp will be

:06:25.:06:29.

dismantled, but no one winds. People have been killed, Hamas have had

:06:30.:06:33.

their infrastructure strike, they have played kamikaze with their own

:06:34.:06:39.

people, but Israel have gone in, guns blazing, far too far. Elected

:06:40.:06:52.

government `` they have lost a lot of friends. A wonderful point has

:06:53.:07:01.

been made and that is people in the Middle East know what they can die

:07:02.:07:04.

for, not what they can live for. That's something that world leaders

:07:05.:07:12.

want to look for, the reason to live for. They want to be seen as is's

:07:13.:07:18.

friend because of what happened 70 odd years ago, but we are getting to

:07:19.:07:22.

a where Israel's position in the world will be looked at through more

:07:23.:07:27.

critical eyes as the generation that feels so closely found together with

:07:28.:07:39.

Israel disappears. Let's move the Guardian. Farage and Johnson, double

:07:40.:07:52.

trouble. Two prominent figures heading the Westminster. Nigel

:07:53.:08:00.

Farage has been selected in South Thanet. I spent the weekend in

:08:01.:08:06.

Ramsgate and I spoke to UKIP supporters and they said we are not

:08:07.:08:11.

then to have this sky coming down here making all these fall from Mrs.

:08:12.:08:14.

We're not going to be spooked by UKIP, but he is standing. There is a

:08:15.:08:22.

lot he can say that he will do because the seafront has been left

:08:23.:08:25.

to rot for the last 20 or so years. A lot of people there have lost hope

:08:26.:08:31.

in politics. What about the double trouble for Cameron lined that the

:08:32.:08:39.

Guardian is taking? Boris Johnson is seeking the Tory candidacy in

:08:40.:08:43.

Oxbridge. We wonder why he has timed it for today. It may be because

:08:44.:08:47.

Nigel Farage was going for his selection at the same time. Boris

:08:48.:08:51.

has often been named as the anti`Farage. He is one of the few

:08:52.:08:59.

politicians that can cut through to the section of the electorate like

:09:00.:09:06.

Farage. But Farage's big challenge is can he appealed to Labour

:09:07.:09:09.

voters? you have been at the Hammersmith

:09:10.:09:30.

Apollo? I learned a lot about this evening. I remember her first time

:09:31.:09:39.

round. I have never been fascinated by her but I have been intrigued by

:09:40.:09:47.

her. Great photographs of her on a number of the front pages. I worried

:09:48.:09:51.

about the Polish prime minister which has caught your eye. David

:09:52.:09:57.

Cameron has offered to back him as the next head of the European

:09:58.:10:03.

Council. This could be very good for Britain because he has a lot of

:10:04.:10:08.

interests align with Britain's interests. But the major stumbling

:10:09.:10:14.

block is he really disagrees with Cameron over immigration rules. They

:10:15.:10:17.

had what was described as a blazing row. He doesn't speak French or

:10:18.:10:29.

English. I'm not sure if Cameron speaks Polish well. You want and

:10:30.:10:34.

blazing row can be if they don't speak the same language! It just

:10:35.:10:40.

goes to show that sometimes when Cameron beat the British drama,

:10:41.:10:45.

long`term, it may be counter`productive. `` British

:10:46.:10:53.

drama. E cigarettes. World health experts call for a ban on them

:10:54.:10:58.

indoors. I noticed the BBC has banned them as well! Apparently,

:10:59.:11:11.

they are very bad for people who are sitting nearby, passively raping. ``

:11:12.:11:22.

they purring. Where do you stand? I thought they were the safer option.

:11:23.:11:31.

Some people have got onto this. On that note, we will have to bring

:11:32.:11:33.

things to a close. As Manchester United celebrate

:11:34.:12:13.

signing Angel Di Maria,
