regulations. And Castleford Tigers posted Warrington Wolves tonight in

:00:00.:00:00.

the super league preliminary semifinal play`offs. That is all

:00:00.:00:21.

coming up in 15 minutes. Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what

:00:22.:00:24.

the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. With me are the

:00:25.:00:27.

broadcaster David Davies and Anne Ashworth, assistant editor of The

:00:28.:00:32.

Times. The Guardian leads with the vote in the Commons tomorrow on

:00:33.:00:34.

whether the UK should join airstrikes on Islamic State in Iraq.

:00:35.:00:38.

The top story on the front of the Metro is the warning from Iraq's

:00:39.:00:41.

prime minister about a terrorist plot to attack the underground in

:00:42.:00:44.

Paris and New York. The Telegraph says the FBI knows the identity of

:00:45.:00:47.

'Jihadi John' who murdered a British aid worker and two American

:00:48.:00:51.

journalists. The Mail says Britain is about to commit to a three`year

:00:52.:00:54.

war against Islamic State militants. The Times leads with an interview

:00:55.:00:57.

with the daughter of David Haines, who was murdered by the extremists,

:00:58.:01:00.

where she implores MPs to back airstrikes in Iraq. The Independent

:01:01.:01:06.

warns about the computer bug, Shellshock, and carries a picture of

:01:07.:01:09.

Kurdish refugees returning to Syria from Turkey. The Shellshock virus is

:01:10.:01:16.

also on the front of the Financial Times, which says governments are

:01:17.:01:19.

scrambling to shore up their cyber defences. And the Scotsman has a

:01:20.:01:27.

picture of Europe's Ryder Cup team on the front page looking very smart

:01:28.:01:30.

in tartan suits at Gleneagles on the eve of the competition.

:01:31.:01:41.

Let's begin with the Sun. They have the vote in parliament tomorrow on

:01:42.:01:46.

the front page. The majority tell the Prime Minister to hit Iraq and

:01:47.:01:51.

Syria. This is an opinion poll that the Sun has commissioned. 57%

:01:52.:01:59.

support attacks on Iraq and 51% want to attack Syria as well. Syria is a

:02:00.:02:04.

matter for another day. Tomorrow is all about Iraq. There is a

:02:05.:02:10.

widespread view across the papers that the Prime Minister will get his

:02:11.:02:14.

way, will get his vote in the House of Commons tomorrow. A seven hour

:02:15.:02:20.

debate. And he will have cross`party support. Here in the Sun, of course,

:02:21.:02:28.

we have an opinion poll for the British public. The important thing

:02:29.:02:34.

here is that the majority of people want the RAF to join airstrikes in

:02:35.:02:39.

Iraq and in Syria. The motion tomorrow is only on Iraq. Some of us

:02:40.:02:45.

think that another vote in the House of Commons in the not too distant

:02:46.:02:49.

future to go to Syria is almost inevitable. Public opinion has

:02:50.:02:55.

turned at the sight of those beheadings. It seems like people are

:02:56.:03:01.

willing. They want to see the government take action in both Iraq

:03:02.:03:07.

and Syria. David Cameron will go to the House of Commons tomorrow,

:03:08.:03:11.

certain that he can carry hearts and minds with him, although in the

:03:12.:03:16.

House of Commons, he may find more sceptical people than among the

:03:17.:03:22.

general public. There is concern among MPs as to the aims of the

:03:23.:03:28.

military action. We have seen what happens in the past when names have

:03:29.:03:33.

not been clear. What do you do at the end of this? Absolutely! The

:03:34.:03:40.

awfulness of what has been going on that has been in front of

:03:41.:03:45.

everybody's eyes has, I think, made people who would naturally be

:03:46.:03:52.

cynical, sceptical and very, very wary after... People are tired of

:03:53.:03:59.

these wars. I'm sure that they are. But also, we are told, should the UK

:04:00.:04:04.

and US keep open the option of sending ground troops back into

:04:05.:04:13.

Iraq? Yes, 57%. No, 32%. Now, you would never have got those figures,

:04:14.:04:24.

I suspect, one year ago. The vote for strikes against Syria, the

:04:25.:04:29.

government lost that. I wonder if we would have one month ago seen these

:04:30.:04:32.

figures. The young woman whose father was beheaded has articulated

:04:33.:04:39.

how the British people feel. Up with this we will not put. We will not

:04:40.:04:46.

tolerate this terror. The Times carries that story on its front

:04:47.:04:50.

page. Avenge my father, says daughter of aid worker. Bethany

:04:51.:04:58.

Haines is only 17 and who have lost her father in this incredibly brutal

:04:59.:05:03.

way... She has been so remarkably composed when we have seen her

:05:04.:05:11.

speak. Yes. And it is beyond the comprehension of some of us, surely,

:05:12.:05:17.

to think what hurt she and her family have been going through. And

:05:18.:05:21.

there are other hostages, of course. A French hostage, less

:05:22.:05:28.

well`publicised in the UK this morning, but in France, a huge story

:05:29.:05:36.

today inevitably. And in this paper, interesting that this is the top

:05:37.:05:41.

paragraph of the story. The daughter of a British charity worker. But in

:05:42.:05:48.

the middle of the story here, it reads, several senior figures are an

:05:49.:05:52.

easy at the lack of a specific or a more exit strategy. That is the

:05:53.:05:56.

background to it. But it is extraordinary to learn how quickly

:05:57.:06:01.

things could start happening. Tomorrow night, things could

:06:02.:06:07.

happen. The debate will come to an end about five o'clock in the

:06:08.:06:10.

evening and within hours, airstrikes could begin. The debate will begin

:06:11.:06:17.

at 10:30 AM tomorrow morning. 6.5 hours, they expect. Lots of MPs will

:06:18.:06:26.

have something to say. One of those articulating a certain amount of

:06:27.:06:29.

dismay is the Alan Duncan, who says it is difficult to have a simple

:06:30.:06:34.

strategy and set of objectives when you are dealing with a cross`border

:06:35.:06:37.

militant movement rather than a rogue state. I understand that but

:06:38.:06:43.

those who take that attitude must have another option. I think that

:06:44.:06:48.

those who stand up in the House of Commons, and I'm sure people will,

:06:49.:06:53.

they will have to save more than we are against. They have to say what

:06:54.:07:00.

their alternative would be. Tories target professionals with the rent

:07:01.:07:05.

to buy scheme. This story... It is to try to help young professionals

:07:06.:07:10.

save up for a deposit for their first home. Housing is rising to the

:07:11.:07:16.

top of the political agenda and this is the conservative answer to a

:07:17.:07:20.

whole group of dispossessed people who cannot buy a house of their own

:07:21.:07:23.

because they cannot save for a deposit. Under this scheme, they

:07:24.:07:28.

would be allowed to read cheaply for seven years, which would enable them

:07:29.:07:31.

to set something aside each month for a deposit for a home of their

:07:32.:07:37.

own. And the housing association, the biggest provider of social

:07:38.:07:40.

housing, would be given low cost loans to build these homes and allow

:07:41.:07:46.

young professionals with a certain level of income to live in them for

:07:47.:07:50.

quite a long period and save money, which is, I think, what a huge

:07:51.:07:57.

number of young people want to do. There are employers providing

:07:58.:08:00.

mortgages for their staff because they say it is becoming like a

:08:01.:08:04.

fairytale for many people, the idea that they could ever by property.

:08:05.:08:09.

This is another of a whole series of arguments going on between the

:08:10.:08:14.

parties. Everybody wants to be the party of housing this season. Labour

:08:15.:08:22.

has a review of housing this season. And it will release a report next

:08:23.:08:26.

month. What were the latest figures? 200,000? And yet, we have heard from

:08:27.:08:33.

this government about loosening the reins on planning. I happen to know

:08:34.:08:38.

of a West Midlands council, where even this very month, we are being

:08:39.:08:42.

told that getting planning permission, the time it has taken

:08:43.:08:47.

has not decreased but increased. It has lengthened in the past two,

:08:48.:08:52.

three years. It is quite extraordinary. The Financial Times.

:08:53.:08:57.

I cannot pretend to understand this bully. Shellshock phrase the nerves.

:08:58.:09:17.

Cybersecurity. We had Heartbleed. Now we have Shellshock, which should

:09:18.:09:21.

have asked concerned that the underlying systems have been

:09:22.:09:24.

infected. Half a billion computers worldwide that could be affected. An

:09:25.:09:31.

expert earlier seemed to suggest this was known about 20 years ago,

:09:32.:09:37.

which seems extraordinary but... Nobody has been able to find its

:09:38.:09:42.

weaknesses. That is because it was built rather well. But there are

:09:43.:09:51.

always flaws in a system. If hackers can go in and overwrite the code

:09:52.:09:54.

that is there and freak havoc... Whether any have done so `` create

:09:55.:10:06.

terrible problems... Whether any have done so already ordered this

:10:07.:10:10.

will just let them know that they can go in there... How experts are

:10:11.:10:16.

cybersecurity experts? One paper says that people should stop using

:10:17.:10:20.

their credit cards for online purchases until a solution to the

:10:21.:10:27.

bug is found and distributed. That is a fairly large thing for somebody

:10:28.:10:31.

to say, isn't it? , Ross would grind to a halt! `` commerce. GPs say that

:10:32.:10:44.

waiting times are a national disgrace. The chair of the Royal

:10:45.:10:48.

College of GPs says that these intolerable waiting times to see a

:10:49.:10:53.

GP have become a national disgrace and it could endanger people's

:10:54.:11:01.

health. People cannot get an appointment, therefore they do not

:11:02.:11:05.

turn up and they are not diagnosed. In only three years... In 2011, it

:11:06.:11:14.

was 13%, the proportion of patients waiting a week before seeing a GP.

:11:15.:11:21.

Now, it is up to 16%. We are always trying to reform the GP system.

:11:22.:11:29.

Goodness knows, I hope this does not start another reform because it

:11:30.:11:33.

never seems to work. We have had billions spent on management

:11:34.:11:38.

consultants trying to make these systems work. Exactly why it does

:11:39.:11:42.

not work... Is it that people spend too long? She suggests there are not

:11:43.:11:49.

enough GPs to go around and more people want to see them and they are

:11:50.:11:54.

overworked. The level of expectation is very real. There is no question,

:11:55.:12:01.

surely, that this would increase with the average age of the

:12:02.:12:05.

population. Older people by definition... And we older people,

:12:06.:12:13.

which I must say, we feel that that was what we were brought up to do.

:12:14.:12:18.

When you were not well, you went to see the GP or the GP came to see

:12:19.:12:23.

you. I cannot see you as an older person. You are very generous.

:12:24.:12:31.

Overgenerous. For me, I think there should be more over the telephone

:12:32.:12:37.

consultations. The Ryder Cup in the Telegraph. The partners of some of

:12:38.:12:44.

the American players. The paper says there are three days of every second

:12:45.:12:48.

year that can turn the most ardent eurosceptics into passionate

:12:49.:12:51.

supporters of Europe. Even Nigel Farage. He seems to love everything

:12:52.:12:59.

about Europe! The wind, the food, the excellent transport system. ``

:13:00.:13:07.

the wine. The clogs? ! Who wears clogs? ! These women seem very

:13:08.:13:14.

similar in their appearance. I do like some of their boots. There is

:13:15.:13:18.

something troubling about the similarity between these wives, do

:13:19.:13:24.

you not find? This is not a subject I will get into but I do love the

:13:25.:13:29.

quote from Nigel Farage. And good for him to say this. But this event,

:13:30.:13:35.

the Ryder Cup, which has had a chequered history over the years...

:13:36.:13:41.

It used to be Great Britain against the US and it was dying on its feet

:13:42.:13:45.

because the US used to win all the time. It was rejuvenated and now is

:13:46.:13:49.

a huge and thrilling sporting event, which, increasingly, is being

:13:50.:13:54.

watched by people who do not watch golf for the rest of the year. So

:13:55.:14:00.

many happy returns for HM telegram team will stop apparently, so many

:14:01.:14:08.

people reach their 100th birthday, who should receive a card from the

:14:09.:14:12.

Queen that this little office does not have enough staff will stop do

:14:13.:14:20.

people really receive a telegram? It is incredible. 14,000 people over

:14:21.:14:25.

100 in Great Britain. People who were born in the year the Great War

:14:26.:14:28.

started are still alive. What memories! I'm looking forward to

:14:29.:14:37.

mind. I think you have to notify if you want one. We will do that for

:14:38.:14:43.

you, David, when the time comes. It is still a while away. And one piece

:14:44.:14:50.

of breaking news tonight. We have just received reports from Oklahoma

:14:51.:14:57.

in the US of what looks to have been a shooting. One woman has been

:14:58.:15:00.

killed and a man has been taken to hospital in what police has

:15:01.:15:06.

described as a large incident. A food distribution centre in

:15:07.:15:12.

Oklahoma. Very few details, to ask at the moment. Local media reports

:15:13.:15:18.

that there is a gunman at the site in Oklahoma City. `` very few

:15:19.:15:26.

details coming into us at the moment. More details as we receive

:15:27.:15:27.

them. Hello and welcome to Sportsday, I'm

:15:28.:15:48.

Eilidh Barbour. The Ryder Cup captains have revealed

:15:49.:15:51.

their pairings for the opening fourballs at Gleneagles as the

:15:52.:15:53.

competition gets under way tomorrow morning. The Racing advisor to the

:15:54.:16:00.

Queen has said they accept the disqualification of their horse

:16:01.:16:02.

Estimate from second place in this year's Gold Cup after testing

:16:03.:16:03.

positive
