Cup captain, on how he will get even with Europe. And, Michael Schumacher

:00:00.:00:00.

leaves hospital. That is in Sportsday in 15 minutes.

:00:00.:00:16.

Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will be bringing

:00:17.:00:22.

us tomorrow. With me are Pensions Consultant, Ros Altmann and Evening

:00:23.:00:27.

Standard Columnist, Mihir Bose. All of the front pages are in. Let's

:00:28.:00:31.

have a look at them. The Telegraph says the Prime Minister, David

:00:32.:00:33.

Cameron, has warned that independence is a leap in the dark

:00:34.:00:36.

that would punish future generations.

:00:37.:00:38.

'Party leaders take the high road,' says the Guardian, reflecting on the

:00:39.:00:41.

decision of the three main party leaders to travel to Scotland

:00:42.:00:45.

tomorrow in pursuit of 'No' votes. The Independent says Britain faces a

:00:46.:00:48.

constitutional crisis after a poll for the paper suggests Labour MPs in

:00:49.:00:51.

Scotland would help clinch a victory at the next general election even if

:00:52.:00:54.

Scotland votes to become an independent country.

:00:55.:00:56.

The Metro leads with the story that Shaun Wright, the Police and Crime

:00:57.:00:59.

Commissioner responsible for Rotherham, has been warned special

:01:00.:01:00.

powers will be called for to force powers will be called for to force

:01:01.:01:04.

him out of his job if he carries on refusing to quit.

:01:05.:01:13.

The Times leads on the response from Buckingham Palace over any question

:01:14.:01:16.

that the Queen could be brought into the debate on Scottish independence.

:01:17.:01:21.

The Scotsman has a picture of Alex Salmond who claims the campaign to

:01:22.:01:24.

keep Scotland within the UK has fallen apart.

:01:25.:01:29.

The Sun also leads on the story that the three main party leaders are in

:01:30.:01:34.

Scotland tomorrow to rally votes. And the Daily Mail says David

:01:35.:01:37.

Cameron will give the people of Scotland a simple message during his

:01:38.:01:41.

trip there that the rest of the UK desperately wants them to stay.

:01:42.:01:51.

In that vein, the Sun's FrontPage asked the audience, it is 50`50, now

:01:52.:02:00.

comes call to phone a friend `` front page. This is a call from

:02:01.:02:10.

David Blunkett saying, make sure Scotland stays. Interesting piece.

:02:11.:02:19.

It is a great contrast with how the Scottish Sun is showing it. The

:02:20.:02:26.

Scottish Sun seems to be heading towards Scotland going independent.

:02:27.:02:35.

What the Scottish Sun shows is the saltire, listed above number ten, it

:02:36.:02:41.

seemed the first time around it didn't work because the rope got

:02:42.:02:47.

stuck and the headline here is, No campaign is flagging `` Number Ten.

:02:48.:02:54.

There is a difference between the Sun in the south and the Sun in

:02:55.:02:56.

Scotland in how the story is represented. That is interesting.

:02:57.:03:03.

First of all, there is the Scottish Sun that everyone can see. Another

:03:04.:03:07.

poll disaster. Going to the Sun in England and the rest of the UK, this

:03:08.:03:14.

is an interesting tactic, getting those people in Wales, Northern

:03:15.:03:20.

Ireland, to phone up friends in Scotland and convince them not to

:03:21.:03:28.

vote yes. That is trying to tap into the emotions, we want you as part of

:03:29.:03:32.

our family, we are your friends, don't break away from us. Its

:03:33.:03:37.

politicians saying, we haven't been able to connect with people, let's

:03:38.:03:41.

try and see if ordinary people can connect with people in Scotland.

:03:42.:03:49.

Most Britons want Scotland to stay. Most of us in England want Scotland

:03:50.:03:53.

to say. We can't quite understand why they are feeling this desperate

:03:54.:04:01.

need to break away. The Sun is almost saying, we think we might

:04:02.:04:06.

have lost. They always want to be on the winning side. There are these

:04:07.:04:12.

attempts to say, let's try and do something. Why leave it so late? We

:04:13.:04:20.

should not underestimate a feeling in the rest of the UK. I have met

:04:21.:04:27.

people who have said, if they want to go, let them go. Most people I

:04:28.:04:33.

know Carden match in Scotland would break away and don't want it to

:04:34.:04:41.

happen. If we go back to the Scottish Sun, the Scottish saltire

:04:42.:04:44.

which they couldn't get above Number Ten. We saw the situation in

:04:45.:05:01.

clawback with two weeks to go `` Quebec. The Prime Minister panicked

:05:02.:05:07.

and said, we have got to do something about this, we could lose

:05:08.:05:13.

the whole of Quebec. They put out an offensive to convince those in

:05:14.:05:19.

Quebec to stay by saying, we don't want to lose you, they talked about

:05:20.:05:24.

nationhood and a united country, all of the language that the Yes

:05:25.:05:28.

campaign is using in Scotland, they used it for the No campaign. Is that

:05:29.:05:37.

what we are finally seeing now? Yes, and hopefully it will work for

:05:38.:05:45.

the No campaign. The impression is, it has come about not as any planned

:05:46.:05:50.

strategy. Not as though someone has sat down and said, this is what we

:05:51.:05:55.

need to do. It is a response to events. If you are responding and

:05:56.:05:59.

reacting rather than guiding you are unlikely to reach the conclusion you

:06:00.:06:04.

want. That's the worry. That work in Canada. The Canadian situation isn't

:06:05.:06:11.

similar. There was the fact of the US with a different view and things

:06:12.:06:14.

like that. Whereas Scotland has played this card, we are part of the

:06:15.:06:19.

EU and think like that. It's quite a different proposition. One hopes for

:06:20.:06:25.

the sake of the UK that it works. At, the political leadership so far

:06:26.:06:32.

has been wrongfooted by Alex Salmond `` butter. Maybe, Alex Salmond is

:06:33.:06:35.

trying to make the most of it, having been so far behind in the

:06:36.:06:41.

polls `` but. Plenty in Scotland hope it doesn't work. You would hope

:06:42.:06:46.

that we would have learned from what happened in Canada and taken some of

:06:47.:06:48.

those messages on board because this is a bit of a rerun. We knew it was

:06:49.:06:53.

a possibility. Somehow, the campaign didn't take into account. Don't drag

:06:54.:07:05.

me into this, says the Queen. The palace response rebukes politicians

:07:06.:07:08.

over calls for the monarch to intervene. Suggestions he has spoken

:07:09.:07:15.

to David Cameron about the possibility that Scotland could go

:07:16.:07:21.

`` Monarch. The the Palace says... The Queen is right to stay at this

:07:22.:07:25.

and I think she is angry that politicians, who were supposed to be

:07:26.:07:29.

sorting this out and dealing with this, I coming to her and saying,

:07:30.:07:34.

please help us. Can you intervene `` are. That's not David Cameron. No,

:07:35.:07:41.

no, no, it is a general message from Parliament. She is right to stay

:07:42.:07:48.

above this and say, this is not my role or position. I am sure she

:07:49.:07:52.

would very much like this to succeed. I was going to say, do you

:07:53.:07:58.

think that she is fuming behind the scenes? I am certain that she would

:07:59.:08:05.

want the UK to stay intact and stay united. If there is a yes vote,

:08:06.:08:11.

which is possible, if Scotland says at the moment, they would accept the

:08:12.:08:18.

Queen, but there is a factor in the SNP, which is Republican, who knows,

:08:19.:08:22.

after the Queen, Scotland might decide that it doesn't want a

:08:23.:08:29.

monarchy. There are consequences for the monarchy that has to be

:08:30.:08:34.

considered. And consequences for the UK. John Major highlighted them.

:08:35.:08:39.

What would happen to the UK's Security Council seat? The Queen

:08:40.:08:46.

looks furious in the photo. A day after announcing she is going to

:08:47.:08:50.

have a new great grandchild, she looks furious. Let's stay with the

:08:51.:08:54.

front page of the Times. UK forces won three bases to fight ISIS. ``

:08:55.:09:03.

want. There is a call for three bases, one in the UAE, one in Omagh

:09:04.:09:09.

on and one in Bahrain to have engagement in the Middle East for UK

:09:10.:09:18.

troops `` Oman. We have seen politicians in the UK who did not

:09:19.:09:21.

anticipate something going wrong and they are now scrambling and saying,

:09:22.:09:24.

we have got to do something differently. Whether or not it

:09:25.:09:29.

works, I don't know, this is so frightening. We are getting a speech

:09:30.:09:36.

from President Obama tomorrow, outlining his strategy to tackle

:09:37.:09:41.

Islamist militants in Syria and Iraq. We get a sense with this front

:09:42.:09:49.

page, if of course it is true, that there is a momentum building towards

:09:50.:09:54.

some kind of concerted military strategy to deal with these

:09:55.:09:59.

extremists. Obama took a long time. Initially, about ten days ago, he

:10:00.:10:04.

said he had no strategy. We must go back to what Western policy has been

:10:05.:10:08.

in the Middle East, and ask the question, did Western leaders think

:10:09.:10:14.

that going into Iraq, and other initiatives, out of the time, hoping

:10:15.:10:28.

Kadhafi would leave, did they think out the consequences of who they

:10:29.:10:31.

were supporting and encouraging `` Gaddafi. One raises questions about

:10:32.:10:38.

policy in the Middle East. Time now. You can't have a military solution

:10:39.:10:47.

to this. In the name of religion, doing things that are outrageous.

:10:48.:10:50.

You cannot just have military reaction. It has got to be beyond

:10:51.:10:57.

the military to deal with it, politically if you like, you know,

:10:58.:11:04.

at a philosophical level as we make sure that we don't have jihadis from

:11:05.:11:09.

this country going there. That is precisely why the speech from

:11:10.:11:12.

President Obama is coming tomorrow, two days after a unity that has been

:11:13.:11:17.

formed in Baghdad so the sense if they are as a framework in which the

:11:18.:11:22.

West can operate. Let's go to the Metro. If you won't go, we will make

:11:23.:11:28.

you, this is Shaun Wright of the current Police and Crime

:11:29.:11:31.

Commissioner for South Yorkshire, who was of course the head of

:11:32.:11:34.

children's services during the dreadful scandal in Rotherham. 1400

:11:35.:11:44.

children were abused. What the MPs are saying is, if you don't

:11:45.:11:48.

voluntarily resign, and he has come under tremendous pressure to resign

:11:49.:11:51.

and he has refused, clinging to his job, the home affairs committee

:11:52.:11:55.

said, we will pass emergency messes to force Iraq. `` emergency measures

:11:56.:12:00.

to force you out. The public is outraged at what happened and so

:12:01.:12:03.

concerned, there is this feeling that there should be some

:12:04.:12:13.

accountability. Surely. After all the pain and suffering that was

:12:14.:12:17.

caused. We don't want this ever to happen again. We don't want anyone

:12:18.:12:20.

in charge to think it is right to turn a blind eye. The point about

:12:21.:12:24.

the Police and Crime Commissioner is that they were voted by the public

:12:25.:12:27.

and only the public could get rid of them unless there is gross criminal

:12:28.:12:31.

offence that was carried out. That hasn't happened. That hasn't

:12:32.:12:34.

happened, but you have the question of accountability. We believe in

:12:35.:12:39.

this country that if on your watch, it has happened, you take

:12:40.:12:45.

responsibility. If you don't take responsibility, it raises questions

:12:46.:12:48.

about why you are a public official. If you cannot say, I may not have

:12:49.:12:54.

been responsible as an individual, but because I managed the whole

:12:55.:12:58.

affair, I therefore must fall on my sword otherwise the whole basis of

:12:59.:13:02.

public life in this country is being violated and changed. OK. Stating

:13:03.:13:10.

with the Metro, Apple unveils a smartwatch. They have had a day of

:13:11.:13:30.

unveiling new things `` staying. The new iPhone six has come out. Bigger

:13:31.:13:34.

and faster. Unfortunately, they have some technical problems. It is in

:13:35.:13:42.

the business section as well. That is slightly embarrassing. After they

:13:43.:13:47.

couldn't get the technology to work, they had to hand out pictures to the

:13:48.:13:51.

journalists waiting to see this great new technology. They have had

:13:52.:13:58.

problems, haven't they? Their balance sheet is rather healthy, it

:13:59.:14:03.

has to be said. But after the death of Steve Jobs, the founder and the

:14:04.:14:06.

icon of the company, that they have not been able to find their feet in

:14:07.:14:11.

the marketplace and new watch is the first new product they have brought

:14:12.:14:14.

out for years. Other companies have already made this kind of thing,

:14:15.:14:20.

brought this kind of thing out. To call it a smartwatch. Looking at the

:14:21.:14:24.

picture... Smart is not the first word that springs to mind. It looks

:14:25.:14:29.

like a load of old nonsense. It does. This sort of watch that I

:14:30.:14:35.

would want to work. The whole question is... You have an iconic

:14:36.:14:40.

figure departing, the man who made the company and went beyond the

:14:41.:14:44.

company, the symbol of technology, and I think that Apple is struggling

:14:45.:14:48.

still to find its feet, to find it strategy. These are, if you like,

:14:49.:14:53.

other years when they bring out a number of products, none of which

:14:54.:14:58.

will work, and hopefully in five or six years, they might finally become

:14:59.:15:04.

an Apple which we say, they have found a successor to Steve Jobs. We

:15:05.:15:07.

have the end it there. It has been great having you with us. Many

:15:08.:15:13.

thanks for that. Stay with us now on BBC News because it is time for

:15:14.:15:14.

Sportsday. Hello and welcome to Sportsday. I'm

Katie Gornall. Our headlines this evening: Baled Out ` Wales need the

:15:30.:15:32.

world's most expensive footballer to avoid a massive upset against

:15:33.:15:39.

Andorra in their European qualifier. Michael Schumacher leaves hospital

:15:40.:15:42.

nearly ten months after his skiing accident ` but his family say he
