in agreeing personal terms. Louis Van Haal has had a grilling from the

:00:00.:00:00.

media at a press conference today and we will round up a busy night in

:00:00.:00:08.

that Super lead in 15 minutes on Sportsday after the Papers ``

:00:09.:00:12.

League. Hello and welcome to our look ahead

:00:13.:00:21.

to what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. With me are Jeremy

:00:22.:00:23.

Cliffe, political correspondent at the Economist and Alison Phillips,

:00:24.:00:31.

weekend editor of the Mirror. Tomorrow's front pages.

:00:32.:00:34.

'Climate of Fear' is the Independent's take on the news of

:00:35.:00:38.

the UK's terror threat being raised. The Mirror says that there will be

:00:39.:00:41.

more police on the streets and at airports.

:00:42.:00:43.

The Times says the Prime Minister will negotiate with the Liberal

:00:44.:00:46.

Democrats over the weekend on new anti`terror measures.

:00:47.:00:49.

The Telegraph reports that a laptop seized from Isil in Syria contained

:00:50.:00:52.

research on how to make a biological bomb.

:00:53.:00:57.

The Express also leads on the terror threat story, but it's picture is of

:00:58.:01:00.

missing five year old Ashya King who is seriously ill and was taken from

:01:01.:01:03.

hospital by his parents. The Mail claims that consumers are

:01:04.:01:06.

panic buying high power vacuum cleaners before an EU ban on their

:01:07.:01:12.

sale comes into force next week. The NHS will be at the heart of

:01:13.:01:15.

Labour's election campaign, according to the FT. They say the

:01:16.:01:19.

party is considering a health tax. And The Scottish Daily Mail has done

:01:20.:01:22.

an exclusive interview with David Cameron ahead of the Scottish

:01:23.:01:25.

Referendum next month. In it he admits that he is nervous but

:01:26.:01:27.

believes the silent majority will vote to keep the union.

:01:28.:01:38.

Good evening. The Guardian leads as many papers to on terror powers to

:01:39.:01:43.

tackle the ISIS or Islamic State threat. Much focus will be on what

:01:44.:01:50.

David Cameron and Nick Clegg agree. This has been flagged that we are at

:01:51.:01:57.

the point where it is a severe risk. That has brought it to everyone's

:01:58.:02:02.

attention. The idea is the ability to sees passports and stop people

:02:03.:02:15.

going abroad `` sieze. This is a question mark about how David

:02:16.:02:20.

Cameron will deal with ISIS. It is a generational struggle. He hasn't

:02:21.:02:26.

been clear what he will do. He wants to take passports away from people

:02:27.:02:29.

suspected of planning to travel to Syria. The on that, for a start,

:02:30.:02:36.

there are legal questions about depriving people of their

:02:37.:02:38.

citizenship and without our country. He was making the

:02:39.:02:43.

announcement today, to using part of that was him making his case for

:02:44.:02:46.

tough new legislation to be pushed through? He was setting up the big

:02:47.:02:54.

picture and on Monday we will get details. He was buying himself time.

:02:55.:03:01.

He has to get this past the Lib Dems. One of their defining Castries

:03:02.:03:07.

seeks is there a scepticism `` characteristics. `` is there a

:03:08.:03:16.

scepticism. Whether he comes to Parliament with serious measures

:03:17.:03:22.

remains to be seen. Also, increasing this sense of fear and terror which

:03:23.:03:26.

lays the groundwork to come in with the things that people will be

:03:27.:03:31.

concerned about, including civil liberties. He says he will be on the

:03:32.:03:37.

phone with Nick Clegg all weekend, it is strange, we have been aware of

:03:38.:03:45.

ISIS it has been going on for quite sometime. It is worsening but he is

:03:46.:03:49.

back from holidays and all of a sudden it is a major issue. He has

:03:50.:03:54.

talked about revoking passports as some kind of legislation that is

:03:55.:04:01.

already in existence for that. The Times goes into this. The sticking

:04:02.:04:04.

point between him and Nick Clegg will be the return of control orders

:04:05.:04:10.

which proved controversial. Some people say, we need them back. There

:04:11.:04:15.

isn't enough control. It will be a fine line. David Cameron to find

:04:16.:04:20.

himself against what he characterised as the overreaching

:04:21.:04:25.

nature of the antiterrorism measures brought in by the last Labour

:04:26.:04:30.

government. Specifically, he set out a priority to get rid of these

:04:31.:04:34.

orders were by government can prevent people from moving around,

:04:35.:04:40.

can basically track their movements. It seems security services feel they

:04:41.:04:43.

need these orders back so they can have a grip on where people are and

:04:44.:04:47.

what they are doing. It wasn't long ago that a terror suspect escaped

:04:48.:04:55.

from a mosque dressed in a burqa. He was being watched by security

:04:56.:05:03.

services! There is unease about the number of men going abroad to fight

:05:04.:05:06.

with ISIS. The public want something to be done. The Met commissioner

:05:07.:05:10.

coming out this week for more to be done. It is laid bare for him to

:05:11.:05:19.

take action. Is there a more need to look at why people are heading to

:05:20.:05:24.

Syria and Iraq. Why are people who are British, born in Britain, lived

:05:25.:05:28.

here all their lives, heading to Syria and Iraq? This is a key

:05:29.:05:35.

problem. There is the argument that this dates back to the invasion of

:05:36.:05:38.

Iraq and that we are now reaping what we sowed. Beyond that, those

:05:39.:05:44.

boys would have been very young. There is a wider issue to look at,

:05:45.:05:50.

why boys have grown up in most areas, in Cardiff, west London, why

:05:51.:05:56.

they dislike the way of life here to an extent that they are willing to

:05:57.:06:03.

fight in some dreadful place. Often, well educated. One had had four

:06:04.:06:06.

offers to study medicine at university. These aren't people from

:06:07.:06:13.

deprived society. It makes the task. And more difficult. It isn't a

:06:14.:06:17.

question of economic exclusion or radicalism in small pockets of

:06:18.:06:21.

deprivation. It is about something bigger, people searching for meaning

:06:22.:06:26.

and identity through this violence. Young men have always wanted to go

:06:27.:06:29.

away and fight, it has been a tradition, going away to a certain

:06:30.:06:34.

cells. We are looking at a very, very, very small minority of Muslim

:06:35.:06:42.

men doing this, `` to assert themselves. You had men fighting in

:06:43.:06:52.

the Spanish civil war, and previous conflicts where there is the

:06:53.:06:55.

attraction of fighting and having passionate beliefs that, ten years

:06:56.:07:00.

later, if they settled down, it wouldn't be the case. ISIS has

:07:01.:07:07.

glamorised itself. They have a grasp on social media on how to speak with

:07:08.:07:11.

young people growing up in the West. What is Twitter doing? It makes you

:07:12.:07:18.

wonder why they aren't doing more to stop these messages. Last week in

:07:19.:07:22.

the Sunday Mirror, we could communicate with one of these guys,

:07:23.:07:30.

to suppose it jihadi Beatles through Ask FM. Astonishing. Another story

:07:31.:07:36.

which one only hopes will develop for the better overnight, it

:07:37.:07:42.

features on the front page of the Times, this is missing a shifting.

:07:43.:07:46.

Just five years old. At each with his mother. `` Ashya King. No sign

:07:47.:08:00.

of him yet. There is some suggestion that it might be related to the fact

:08:01.:08:04.

that the parents are Jehovah's Witnesses. That isn't the rationale

:08:05.:08:08.

for taking their ill son away. It isn't fully known. There is some

:08:09.:08:13.

suggestion that is the motivator. It remains a mystery why they would

:08:14.:08:15.

take our son away from this treatment. One comfort is that he is

:08:16.:08:22.

with his parents. The other line that the Sun and the Mirror have got

:08:23.:08:26.

is that he is terminally ill. That changes things if it is your little

:08:27.:08:30.

boy in pain in hospital with tubes and all the rest of it. He was

:08:31.:08:34.

getting great treatment but that would affect their thinking. The

:08:35.:08:41.

Sun, pretty much leads on that story with a bit about the UK terror alert

:08:42.:08:48.

on the front page. Find Ashya King is the headline. Jehovah's Witness

:08:49.:08:53.

family of nine on the run. We don't know because Jehovah's Witnesses

:08:54.:08:57.

have strong beliefs, don't they, about medical treatment but we don't

:08:58.:09:00.

know if that is the reason behind this. They do but he had recently

:09:01.:09:04.

had an operation so it wasn't as though they were standing in the way

:09:05.:09:07.

of a treatment. They were supportive of that, as it was charted on social

:09:08.:09:12.

media. His brother was making videos up until yesterday. We believe they

:09:13.:09:17.

are in France at the moment. We will keep you updated on BBC News. The FT

:09:18.:09:23.

Weekend, turning its attention to Ukraine. A day doesn't go by where

:09:24.:09:30.

there is accusation about Russian involvement which is then denied

:09:31.:09:33.

immediately by Russia. The latest is in Mariupol. This is a terribly

:09:34.:09:41.

sad... The people digging trenches, waiting for them to come, the

:09:42.:09:46.

Russians to come. These people feel this is their last stand. Exactly.

:09:47.:09:52.

It seems to me this is more than just what we have had in the last

:09:53.:09:56.

few weeks. This is a notable step up. There are widespread reports of

:09:57.:10:02.

Russian soldiers, not militants or Russian soldiers disguised as

:10:03.:10:05.

militants, but the Russian army openly operating in Ukraine which,

:10:06.:10:10.

as you say, Russia denies. It reinforces the sense, and Syria,

:10:11.:10:15.

Iraq and ISIS story is part of this, that the West is on the back foot

:10:16.:10:20.

geopolitically. Why is that? The West is good at talking the talk and

:10:21.:10:25.

setting deadlines, as was the case interior and Ukraine, but not good

:10:26.:10:31.

at with action. `` case in Syria. In Parliament, they were voting on

:10:32.:10:34.

action in Syria, with MPs speaking out firmly about the need for

:10:35.:10:39.

action, yet they voted against it and David Cameron took it from the

:10:40.:10:41.

table and that was the last we heard of it until recently when the Syria

:10:42.:10:44.

crisis came to threaten our own streets. It is the product of the

:10:45.:10:49.

West was no failure to live up to its own rhetoric. Do you think Iraq

:10:50.:10:54.

and Afghanistan play huge roles in that. We are paying the price for

:10:55.:11:00.

what has gone on before an Iraqi and Afghanistan with public opinion

:11:01.:11:03.

opposed to any great intervention. With an election next year, this is

:11:04.:11:07.

at the forefront of everybody's mind. People are stuck. No one is

:11:08.:11:14.

quite sure what to do. Clearly, no one wants a war to escalate in

:11:15.:11:17.

Ukraine and for Europe to be dragged into it. The Daily Mail, a rather

:11:18.:11:26.

different story on the front page about vacuum cleaners. Who wants to

:11:27.:11:35.

explain this one? The great vacuum cleaner stampede. This is the

:11:36.:11:39.

warning that tomorrow, shops will be inundated with people desperately

:11:40.:11:46.

trying to play high powered vacuum cleaners `` to buy. Supposedly

:11:47.:11:53.

because the EU will cut down on high`powered domestic appliances and

:11:54.:11:55.

that those who prefer their appliances to be hefty will be

:11:56.:12:01.

dashing to buy them. Is this to do with energy efficiency, to save

:12:02.:12:08.

energy? That is what the EU says. They are not 24 people to buy

:12:09.:12:12.

ineffective products but to force producers to manufacture energy

:12:13.:12:22.

efficient appliances. If you no longer have a high powered vacuum

:12:23.:12:25.

cleaner, you can hold it for longer, it just takes longer, there are

:12:26.:12:32.

other ways around it. Top tips from Alice and this evening. There is

:12:33.:12:41.

always sticky date. `` sticky tape. The EU are happy taking them away,

:12:42.:12:45.

they are coming back for hairdryers, lawnmowers and kettles. What did we

:12:46.:12:52.

do before vacuum cleaners? Carpet sweepers. Before that? Women went on

:12:53.:13:01.

their hands and knees. Hairdryers and other appliances could go as

:13:02.:13:07.

well. Well. OK. Predicting a vacuum cleaner stampede. Let's turn our

:13:08.:13:14.

attention to the Daily Telegraph. One picture of two familiar faces

:13:15.:13:22.

from the Great Rikishi Happy bake Off. `` British Bake Off. A

:13:23.:13:35.

contestant put his baked Alaska in the freezer for the ice cream to set

:13:36.:13:39.

and another to get out of the freezer and there is a debate on how

:13:40.:13:42.

long she took it out all the freezer `` Baked Alaska. It did not set, it

:13:43.:13:48.

was a disaster, he cried and walked out and the lady who took it out of

:13:49.:13:52.

the freezer is now a national hate figure for ruining his dish. It goes

:13:53.:13:58.

to show how much reach this has. 800 complaints about this. This lady is

:13:59.:14:03.

a national hate figure. People take this very seriously indeed. Perhaps

:14:04.:14:09.

it is comfort viewing. Not to be taken lightly. The age of social

:14:10.:14:16.

media. Instant. These things built momentum quickly. You do have a

:14:17.:14:24.

grown man crying about his Baked Alaska. He is passionate about his

:14:25.:14:31.

food! Thank you for taking us through the papers. Have a wonderful

:14:32.:14:36.

weekend. Stay with us on BBC News. More on the news that Britain's
