at the China open. The rugby, the Ryder Cup hero and all of that. That
is coming up after the papers. Hello and welcome to our look ahead
to what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. With me are Colleen
Graffy who is a law professor at Pepperdine University, and James
Rampton, a columnist for The Independent. Welcome back to both of
you. Tomorrow's front pages now. First, The Times which leads with
our top story, the strikes by RAF jets on targets in Iraq. The wife of
Alan Henning is pictured on the front of The Guardian with her
appeal for her husband to be released by Islamic State militants.
Hunt for the "brainwashed" 15`year`old who's thought to have
travelled to Syria to join militants is the lead in the Mail. Then in the
Telegraph, it looks ahead to David Cameron's speech tomorrow to the
Tory conference reporting he's expected to promise billions for the
NHS. And finally to The Independent which leads on the ongoing protests
by thousands of pro`democracy demonstrators in Hong Kong.
We start our review with The Times, which carries the headlines, RAAF
jets hit first ISIS targets. `` are a F. They have yoked together
several strains together. They have talked about the heartbreaking
speech that Barbara Henning gave to the BBC today. A very moving speech.
I hope it will make an impact, who knows who will see it. We know one
thing, IS are very savvy about using social media and a very
technologically savvy. We can hope they see it. They have also tied it
in with the speech from to Reza May. `` James Rampton. She explained why
we have to fight IS. Our history tells us that when our enemies want
to attack us, they mean it. We must act while we have the chance. I
implore those sentiments. I picked up a story on the good news that is
turning some of the campaign. These two strikes, along with 19 different
targets that the US led coalition had, that has allowed the Kurdish
troops to have one of the most successful ground efforts of the
campaign so far. There was concern that even though there were striking
various targets, that ISIS continued to advance. So now we are seeing the
results of that, and it is not only that but it is cutting off their
funds. Their oil targets. Some were getting money. So there were not
really committed to jihad is but they were getting paid money. ``
jihadist is. Although it is perhaps little early to be that confident.
Yesterday we heard how close they are to, Baghdad, for example. Yes.
But that has changed now. Another interpretation of that, the gum
ringtone from some commentators that the RAF was not getting involved,
you could see that as a success. `` grumbling tone. ISIS are now hiding
away because they are terrified of being bombed, that is a success.
Also they are being cautious to ensure they run a civilian deaths.
Not having civilian casualties is an important aspect of this, and in
Iraq there are fewer targets and they are more mobile. It will we
difficult. Let us move to The Guardian, you mentioned Barbara
Henning, there is a photograph of her on the front page from the BBC
interview. A further acknowledgement of the desperate plight stopper that
it is a very strong photo, it draws your eyes towards it. As you
mentioned earlier, Pauline, she made a clever appeal to IS by saying that
the Sharia court had found Allen Henning innocent. `` Alan Henning.
`` Colleen. Also last week we saw some hardline imams go online saying
that this is against the Sharia law to execute him. Hopefully they act
on that. Her bravery and courage, at a time when she is distraught and to
go on global media at this time, it is important not only for her to
express that but also to point out what a fraud ISIS is. It is nothing
to do with the religion of Islam, when they have imams and Islamic
leaders saying this is an innocent man who has done nothing. If ISIS
does something to Allen at this point, that would be absolutely
unacceptable. `` Alan Henning. He is an innocent man who had gone there
to give aid. Hopefully it will turn others off to join the fight,
because they realise it has nothing to do with Islam. He has gone back
four times proving his bravery and commitment to help those people in
distress. If they execute him now, that would be outrageous! . Let us
stay with The Guardian. . This is a reference to what David Cameron may
be telling the Conservative party faithful. He is cleverly grasping
the NHS, which labour considered to be under their remit. `` Labour.
They are saying that we are going to ring`fence the NHS as we have
provided a strong economy, we have got the money to be able to provide
for the NHS and I am sure this is annoying and Miliband. `` Ed
Miliband. The language is very interesting,
talking about planting a flag. I am interested by the word tried. Yes,
as though he is not going to succeed. Are they planting a flag in
the Tories' midriff. He has been talking about closing tax loopholes
and so forth. But they also point out that this promise may well still
leave the NHS woefully short of funds because everyone is living
longer. I like the headline here. It is a lot stronger. It makes the
emphasis on the strong economy, hint hint, labour has not been so strong
in providing for the economy. `` Labour. What it is an interesting
contrast, the Telegraph says they will do it, The Guardian says they
will try to do it. There you have it. It is a difference between those
two papers. There is a very interesting line in the Telegraph
that Cameron is go to mention his son, Ivan, who sadly died in 2009.
He is pointing out that the NHS was invaluable in helping the family in
carrying for the boy. That gives him an incredible power as he makes his
alleged to support the NHS, who is go to argue with that? And the UKIP
story on the front of the Telegraph. You must treat this with health
warnings, this is the result of a private dinner party conversation
that was picked up. But the pollster is suggesting that UKIP may pick up
four seats, that must be worrying for the Tories. The whole week has
been overshadowed by the recent defections. You could almost see the
steam coming out of David Cameron's years as he was talking about that.
`` his ears. If I were the Tories, I would be very frightened about the
surge in UKIP support. This is only four seats but it indicates that for
the first time they may have a Parliamentary presents. We thought
this would wrongfoot the conservative party conference but it
really has not. Anyone who saw Boris Johnson, he was S. He was lamenting
the fact that there was a suggestion from any of the other parties to
entice him over. He took the issue on head on. Saying that UKIP will
not make it. It was a good powerplay. We do not know what the
next few days will bring. When they do so strongly in the European
election, they were the protest fight. So you cannot vote LibDem to
make a statement about the status quo. People never do protest voting
in general elections. It also looks like reckless voting may not be able
to win. The Daily Mail, the hunt for the British G Hardy. G this girl is
gone when her parents come to pick up in the afternoon. She is
allegedly wanting to join jihad, going through Turkey into Syria. She
was with an older girl so we have to speculate how did she get
radicalised, on the Internet? Was in a one aware and watching this? How
was she able to pay for a plane to? Was the credit card? And what sort
of recruitment was this 17`year`old girl doing to bring her over? What
we all know, of course, is the despicable way in which ISIS is
treating women. So she may well be bamboozled. It is a sadness that is
striking. I have three teenage girls. And you would hope that they
would be aware of this, the parents. It speaks to the dangers of
radicalising online. If young, impressionable people can be
affected by this stuff pouring out of the Internet, can we control of?
We want to control the? If it is people under 18, I would say you try
to control it. Like they do online pornography. Maybe we should try and
do the same thing with this. Also, a social media campaign from mosques.
I have seen a video from anti` mum saying do not join this fight, it is
kind Islamic. `` imams. `` not Islamic. I want to squeeze this
end, the front of The Guardian. Unexpected items... They have told
us this. Their slogan is live well, for less. When customers are not
looking, place a few extra items into their baskets. That is what
supermarket staff should be doing. However I would say it is a PR
disaster. They are going to announce new figures showing a drop in sales.
To be doing this sort of campaign behind people's backs, that is not
look good doublet can play a counterpoint? They are a
supermarket. They sell things. It seems like it would be natural to
encourage sales staff to want to sell. Just because someone found out
this, why do we not assume this? Everytime they go and give me a
copy, they offer an upsell. That is what people do. When you go into
news agencies and they try to sell you bars of chocolate... Of course.
(CROSSTALK) I am going to say good for them for
in spy ring their staff to sell more. Thank you very much.
