Hello and welcome to our look ahead at what the papers will bring us

:00:17.:00:26.

tomorrow. Without our Angela Knight and the editor from the Independent.

:00:27.:00:30.

It is good to have you with us. Let's take a look at the front pages

:00:31.:00:35.

of the morning newspapers. I can show you the Independent, not sure

:00:36.:00:39.

how well you will see it. It leads on the threat the second British

:00:40.:00:45.

hostage, Alan Henning who's being held by Islamic State militants.

:00:46.:00:48.

The same photo of the 47`year`old volunteer aid worker is also on

:00:49.:00:51.

the front of Telegraph though it's main story is the comment by the

:00:52.:00:55.

The Guardian also reports on the comment by the Queen as well the

:00:56.:01:02.

It says the prospect of the UK joining military action against the

:01:03.:01:07.

The prospect of military action is the main report in the Express

:01:08.:01:11.

which claims the government is considering 'whatever steps are

:01:12.:01:13.

let's begin with the Islamic State. And the threat now that we have been

:01:14.:01:29.

hearing to this man, 47`year`old Alan Henning, featured on the front

:01:30.:01:35.

of the Independent. A taxi driver from Salford. He has been taken

:01:36.:01:40.

hostage by militants. He has been working in Syria as a volunteer.

:01:41.:01:51.

Obviously under tremendously dangerous circumstances, very few

:01:52.:01:52.

aid agencies able to leave their staff in the country now. Concern

:01:53.:01:56.

has turned to Alan Henning, now we have reported on the death of David

:01:57.:02:02.

Haines. It is quite shocking, isn't it? Like many, absolutely appalled

:02:03.:02:09.

with what we have seen, the reports and how the brutality with which

:02:10.:02:15.

these hostages are being dealt with. They have gone to help, they have

:02:16.:02:22.

gone to assist, bringing aid, trying to help those who are impacted. They

:02:23.:02:27.

are captured, I do not know how, may be traded and find themselves in an

:02:28.:02:31.

appalling situation. I hope we can do something. Don't we'll look at

:02:32.:02:35.

this and say, something must be done to get the hostages away. Hours and

:02:36.:02:41.

other nationalities. We can talk about what could be done in a

:02:42.:02:44.

moment. You raise an interesting point, we do not know a great deal

:02:45.:02:48.

about the circumstances they are in. A great deal of care is taken in the

:02:49.:02:53.

reporting of hostage situations. Yes, Alan Henning has been held

:02:54.:02:58.

hostage to the last nine months. For most people, this is the first

:02:59.:03:01.

anyone has heard of it. That has been a very deliberate strategy on

:03:02.:03:05.

behalf of the Foreign Office, blacking out talking to media. That

:03:06.:03:11.

position became completely unsustainable overnight, when the

:03:12.:03:18.

video right ISIS came out. The Foreign Office had now changed their

:03:19.:03:22.

position. There is an important and interesting question about whether

:03:23.:03:25.

that is the right decision. You made the point, this was an aid worker

:03:26.:03:30.

going out there to help. This will mobilise people in the Muslim world

:03:31.:03:36.

as well, saying it is barbaric and wrong. If we had known about that

:03:37.:03:41.

before, might the chances... Might he have been release? Exactly. What

:03:42.:03:47.

we do not know either is if there are a lot of attempts made quietly,

:03:48.:03:53.

privately. This man and the other hostages who were captured, it

:03:54.:04:02.

rapidly escalated throughout that part of the Middle East.

:04:03.:04:07.

Self`evidently, not everybody agrees with the way this is taking place.

:04:08.:04:13.

There will be a huge proportion of people in these countries who would

:04:14.:04:16.

say this is wrong and would not be in favour of taking hostages. One of

:04:17.:04:24.

the reasons they say they should have these blackouts as you never

:04:25.:04:31.

know what has been said. And if their nationality contradicts with

:04:32.:04:37.

what they have said their captors. But when Jon Swain got kidnapped in

:04:38.:04:42.

Ethiopia many years ago, there was a similar news blackout. He said his

:04:43.:04:45.

captors said to him, we think you are a spy because your newspaper not

:04:46.:04:50.

reported about it. These are enormously difficult issues. That is

:04:51.:04:56.

right. I absolutely agree, difficult issues and you can see just why

:04:57.:05:01.

there is a silence, a public silence was so long. But I think this is so

:05:02.:05:09.

terrible now, this is such a huge, appalling issue, that you have to

:05:10.:05:13.

rethink all the strategies. Including the one about what happens

:05:14.:05:17.

when somebody is captured. Let's talk about strategy. We have here on

:05:18.:05:23.

the Daily Telegraph the same photograph of Alan Henning. David

:05:24.:05:25.

Cameron saying he will seek UN approval for air strikes when he

:05:26.:05:29.

goes to the United Nations. That will not be until after the Scottish

:05:30.:05:36.

referendum vote on Thursday. But, the view seems to be, whilst resolve

:05:37.:05:42.

is strengthening, the position won't really change, will it, for the

:05:43.:05:46.

government? There are a couple of things happening. Downing Street,

:05:47.:05:53.

the last thing they want to be seen to be doing is rushing into things.

:05:54.:05:57.

They have done things in the past to quickly in the Middle East. But in

:05:58.:06:02.

the long`running com is much more sensible unsustainable. There is a

:06:03.:06:06.

choreography to it. David Cameron goes to the UN next week, talks to

:06:07.:06:12.

other Arab leaders, he talks to Obama and they try to build this

:06:13.:06:17.

consensus. Then the following week, I suspect, Parliament we called. The

:06:18.:06:23.

critical part here is to get partners in the Middle East, as

:06:24.:06:27.

well. `` we called. It is for them to say the threat is on us as well.

:06:28.:06:33.

It is on them, of course. If it is a coalition of partners in which the

:06:34.:06:40.

Arab states are there, and maybe it is US led in some respects, but are

:06:41.:06:44.

far closer partnership it is more likely to get the long`term

:06:45.:06:47.

success, but it will take time. It may suddenly have been sprung on us

:06:48.:06:52.

overnight over a short period of time, the whole of this caliphate

:06:53.:07:00.

and how ISIS has come across to our attention, but I think it will take

:07:01.:07:04.

some very considerable time to resolve. It has to be resolved with

:07:05.:07:08.

those countries who are affected in that part of the world. We will come

:07:09.:07:13.

back to the Telegraph, its lead story tonight, the Queen breaking

:07:14.:07:16.

her silence over Scottish independence. But a quick look at

:07:17.:07:20.

the Guardian. Stop this menace, UK steps close closer to threat of

:07:21.:07:29.

ISIS. It will be done in concert with the United States. That is

:07:30.:07:33.

right, and that is a way to do it. In this report it actually does

:07:34.:07:36.

reference some Western diplomats reported that several Arab states

:07:37.:07:40.

have offered to join. Nobody has said it yet publicly, but I think in

:07:41.:07:47.

this article we do have some of the critical steps of what would form a

:07:48.:07:52.

successful coalition. I hope over the next week or two weeks, as

:07:53.:07:56.

Oliver said, it will start to come together. Build the government in

:07:57.:08:04.

Iraq which gives an alternative. That is what has happened. That has

:08:05.:08:12.

so often been the case, let's deal with the problem and then think

:08:13.:08:15.

about what happened afterwards. We have seen that. You are so right.

:08:16.:08:19.

You have to get that political leadership there as well. The Daily

:08:20.:08:26.

Express. This is the bubbly the body meant, as you mentioned, strength in

:08:27.:08:30.

public opinion about this. We will destroy jihadist monsters. `` of the

:08:31.:08:35.

embodiment. The other story on the front of the express tonight is the

:08:36.:08:41.

Queen tells Scotland to think very carefully. We may need to show

:08:42.:08:46.

you... There we go. Described in some of the newspapers as an

:08:47.:08:52.

intervention. The fact she worlds interviewed. It was a chap outside

:08:53.:08:59.

church. All she said outside church was, I hope people think very

:09:00.:09:04.

carefully about the future. Hardly incendiary stuff. But I feel that

:09:05.:09:14.

will not stop her getting cyber trolled. Was it necessary for her to

:09:15.:09:21.

say anything? If somebody asks you and you give the stony silence... I

:09:22.:09:25.

think this is absolutely the right thing to say. I am very proud of the

:09:26.:09:30.

Queen, I make no bones about it. I think she is very good at just

:09:31.:09:34.

saying the appropriate thing at the appropriate time. If telling people

:09:35.:09:39.

to think before they cast their vote is some way considered intervening,

:09:40.:09:42.

incendiary and something she should not have said, I do not sit in that

:09:43.:09:46.

camp. I think everybody has to think very carefully about the Scottish

:09:47.:09:50.

vote, not just the vote itself but what happens after. Which ever way

:09:51.:09:54.

that vote goes, and I certainly hope they vote to be an independent

:09:55.:10:00.

nation but within the union, I am in favour of the union, that after that

:10:01.:10:04.

vote, which ever way it goes, there is going to be a lot of change. For

:10:05.:10:08.

the Queen to say, let's think about it carefully, I think that is good,

:10:09.:10:14.

I really do. The Financial Times. I will have two holes this up to you

:10:15.:10:18.

in an old school way. `` hold this up. Can you see it? It is this bit.

:10:19.:10:30.

Andy Teck backlash. This is a self`critical look at how a lot of

:10:31.:10:35.

people feel, particularly in Europe, following the revelations to

:10:36.:10:43.

do with how our data is being used, privacy issues. All of these

:10:44.:10:47.

companies that have grown exponentially over the last few

:10:48.:10:50.

years, they were nothing and they have collected vast amount of

:10:51.:10:55.

information about us and not thinking carefully that how to use

:10:56.:10:59.

it. It causes all sorts of problems. The understatement of the year. It

:11:00.:11:03.

says some in our industry have underestimated the degree to which

:11:04.:11:07.

people care about their privacy, said the General Council of

:11:08.:11:10.

Microsoft. Yes, they have underestimated. They need to think

:11:11.:11:14.

about this very carefully. We will return to these stories and others

:11:15.:11:19.

at 11:30pm. If you have any comments and you are on twitter you could use

:11:20.:11:23.

the hashtag on the screen. Stay with us on BBC News, it is time for

:11:24.:11:26.

click. This wearable technology is a great

:11:27.:11:34.

idea but they still have to bring it
