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


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


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


League. Hello and welcome to our look ahead


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


Cliffe, political correspondent at the Economist and Alison Phillips,


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


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


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


more police on the streets and at airports.


The Times says the Prime Minister will negotiate with the Liberal


Democrats over the weekend on new anti`terror measures.


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


research on how to make a biological bomb.


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


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


hospital by his parents. The Mail claims that consumers are


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


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


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


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


an exclusive interview with David Cameron ahead of the Scottish


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


believes the silent majority will vote to keep the union.


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


there are legal questions about depriving people of their


citizenship and without our country. He was making the


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


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


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


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


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


scepticism. Whether he comes to Parliament with serious measures


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


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


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


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


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


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


talked about revoking passports as some kind of legislation that is


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


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


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


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


himself against what he characterised as the overreaching


nature of the antiterrorism measures brought in by the last Labour


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


orders were by government can prevent people from moving around,


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


question of economic exclusion or radicalism in small pockets of


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


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


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


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


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


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


attraction of fighting and having passionate beliefs that, ten years


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


getting great treatment but that would affect their thinking. The


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


there is accusation about Russian involvement which is then denied


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


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


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


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


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


Russian soldiers, not militants or Russian soldiers disguised as


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


warning that tomorrow, shops will be inundated with people desperately


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


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


that those who prefer their appliances to be hefty will be


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


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


ineffective products but to force producers to manufacture energy


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


terror threat level has been raised at midnight. Coming up next,


Sportsday. Hello and welcome to Sportsday. I'm
