regulations. And Castleford Tigers posted Warrington Wolves tonight in


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


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


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


broadcaster David Davies and Anne Ashworth, assistant editor of The


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


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


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


prime minister about a terrorist plot to attack the underground in


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


figures. The young woman whose father was beheaded has articulated


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


things could start happening. Tomorrow night, things could


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


their alternative would be. Tories target professionals with the rent


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


told that getting planning permission, the time it has taken


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


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


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


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


have asked concerned that the underlying systems have been


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


cybersecurity experts? One paper says that people should stop using


their credit cards for online purchases until a solution to the


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


year that can turn the most ardent eurosceptics into passionate


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


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


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


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


something troubling about the similarity between these wives, do


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


described as a large incident. A food distribution centre in


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


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


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


them. Hello and welcome to Sportsday, I'm


Eilidh Barbour. The Ryder Cup captains have revealed


their pairings for the opening fourballs at Gleneagles as the


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


Queen has said they accept the disqualification of their horse
