at the China open. The rugby, the Ryder Cup hero and all of that. That

:00:00.:00:00.

is coming up after the papers. Hello and welcome to our look ahead

:00:00.:00:21.

to what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. With me are Colleen

:00:22.:00:28.

Graffy who is a law professor at Pepperdine University, and James

:00:29.:00:30.

Rampton, a columnist for The Independent. Welcome back to both of

:00:31.:00:36.

you. Tomorrow's front pages now. First, The Times which leads with

:00:37.:00:40.

our top story, the strikes by RAF jets on targets in Iraq. The wife of

:00:41.:00:43.

Alan Henning is pictured on the front of The Guardian with her

:00:44.:00:46.

appeal for her husband to be released by Islamic State militants.

:00:47.:00:56.

Hunt for the "brainwashed" 15`year`old who's thought to have

:00:57.:00:59.

travelled to Syria to join militants is the lead in the Mail. Then in the

:01:00.:01:03.

Telegraph, it looks ahead to David Cameron's speech tomorrow to the

:01:04.:01:05.

Tory conference reporting he's expected to promise billions for the

:01:06.:01:08.

NHS. And finally to The Independent which leads on the ongoing protests

:01:09.:01:11.

by thousands of pro`democracy demonstrators in Hong Kong.

:01:12.:01:17.

We start our review with The Times, which carries the headlines, RAAF

:01:18.:01:29.

jets hit first ISIS targets. `` are a F. They have yoked together

:01:30.:01:36.

several strains together. They have talked about the heartbreaking

:01:37.:01:40.

speech that Barbara Henning gave to the BBC today. A very moving speech.

:01:41.:01:49.

I hope it will make an impact, who knows who will see it. We know one

:01:50.:01:56.

thing, IS are very savvy about using social media and a very

:01:57.:01:58.

technologically savvy. We can hope they see it. They have also tied it

:01:59.:02:20.

in with the speech from to Reza May. `` James Rampton. She explained why

:02:21.:02:27.

we have to fight IS. Our history tells us that when our enemies want

:02:28.:02:32.

to attack us, they mean it. We must act while we have the chance. I

:02:33.:02:40.

implore those sentiments. I picked up a story on the good news that is

:02:41.:02:46.

turning some of the campaign. These two strikes, along with 19 different

:02:47.:02:52.

targets that the US led coalition had, that has allowed the Kurdish

:02:53.:02:59.

troops to have one of the most successful ground efforts of the

:03:00.:03:02.

campaign so far. There was concern that even though there were striking

:03:03.:03:06.

various targets, that ISIS continued to advance. So now we are seeing the

:03:07.:03:14.

results of that, and it is not only that but it is cutting off their

:03:15.:03:24.

funds. Their oil targets. Some were getting money. So there were not

:03:25.:03:30.

really committed to jihad is but they were getting paid money. ``

:03:31.:03:39.

jihadist is. Although it is perhaps little early to be that confident.

:03:40.:03:44.

Yesterday we heard how close they are to, Baghdad, for example. Yes.

:03:45.:03:59.

But that has changed now. Another interpretation of that, the gum

:04:00.:04:01.

ringtone from some commentators that the RAF was not getting involved,

:04:02.:04:09.

you could see that as a success. `` grumbling tone. ISIS are now hiding

:04:10.:04:17.

away because they are terrified of being bombed, that is a success.

:04:18.:04:22.

Also they are being cautious to ensure they run a civilian deaths.

:04:23.:04:26.

Not having civilian casualties is an important aspect of this, and in

:04:27.:04:32.

Iraq there are fewer targets and they are more mobile. It will we

:04:33.:04:36.

difficult. Let us move to The Guardian, you mentioned Barbara

:04:37.:04:42.

Henning, there is a photograph of her on the front page from the BBC

:04:43.:04:48.

interview. A further acknowledgement of the desperate plight stopper that

:04:49.:04:57.

it is a very strong photo, it draws your eyes towards it. As you

:04:58.:05:04.

mentioned earlier, Pauline, she made a clever appeal to IS by saying that

:05:05.:05:13.

the Sharia court had found Allen Henning innocent. `` Alan Henning.

:05:14.:05:25.

`` Colleen. Also last week we saw some hardline imams go online saying

:05:26.:05:31.

that this is against the Sharia law to execute him. Hopefully they act

:05:32.:05:39.

on that. Her bravery and courage, at a time when she is distraught and to

:05:40.:05:46.

go on global media at this time, it is important not only for her to

:05:47.:05:50.

express that but also to point out what a fraud ISIS is. It is nothing

:05:51.:05:58.

to do with the religion of Islam, when they have imams and Islamic

:05:59.:06:02.

leaders saying this is an innocent man who has done nothing. If ISIS

:06:03.:06:07.

does something to Allen at this point, that would be absolutely

:06:08.:06:16.

unacceptable. `` Alan Henning. He is an innocent man who had gone there

:06:17.:06:20.

to give aid. Hopefully it will turn others off to join the fight,

:06:21.:06:28.

because they realise it has nothing to do with Islam. He has gone back

:06:29.:06:33.

four times proving his bravery and commitment to help those people in

:06:34.:06:37.

distress. If they execute him now, that would be outrageous! . Let us

:06:38.:06:47.

stay with The Guardian. . This is a reference to what David Cameron may

:06:48.:06:51.

be telling the Conservative party faithful. He is cleverly grasping

:06:52.:06:58.

the NHS, which labour considered to be under their remit. `` Labour.

:06:59.:07:06.

They are saying that we are going to ring`fence the NHS as we have

:07:07.:07:11.

provided a strong economy, we have got the money to be able to provide

:07:12.:07:16.

for the NHS and I am sure this is annoying and Miliband. `` Ed

:07:17.:07:20.

Miliband. The language is very interesting,

:07:21.:07:36.

talking about planting a flag. I am interested by the word tried. Yes,

:07:37.:07:42.

as though he is not going to succeed. Are they planting a flag in

:07:43.:07:59.

the Tories' midriff. He has been talking about closing tax loopholes

:08:00.:08:05.

and so forth. But they also point out that this promise may well still

:08:06.:08:09.

leave the NHS woefully short of funds because everyone is living

:08:10.:08:29.

longer. I like the headline here. It is a lot stronger. It makes the

:08:30.:08:33.

emphasis on the strong economy, hint hint, labour has not been so strong

:08:34.:08:40.

in providing for the economy. `` Labour. What it is an interesting

:08:41.:08:54.

contrast, the Telegraph says they will do it, The Guardian says they

:08:55.:08:58.

will try to do it. There you have it. It is a difference between those

:08:59.:09:06.

two papers. There is a very interesting line in the Telegraph

:09:07.:09:09.

that Cameron is go to mention his son, Ivan, who sadly died in 2009.

:09:10.:09:17.

He is pointing out that the NHS was invaluable in helping the family in

:09:18.:09:20.

carrying for the boy. That gives him an incredible power as he makes his

:09:21.:09:25.

alleged to support the NHS, who is go to argue with that? And the UKIP

:09:26.:09:40.

story on the front of the Telegraph. You must treat this with health

:09:41.:09:46.

warnings, this is the result of a private dinner party conversation

:09:47.:09:49.

that was picked up. But the pollster is suggesting that UKIP may pick up

:09:50.:09:54.

four seats, that must be worrying for the Tories. The whole week has

:09:55.:10:00.

been overshadowed by the recent defections. You could almost see the

:10:01.:10:06.

steam coming out of David Cameron's years as he was talking about that.

:10:07.:10:15.

`` his ears. If I were the Tories, I would be very frightened about the

:10:16.:10:20.

surge in UKIP support. This is only four seats but it indicates that for

:10:21.:10:24.

the first time they may have a Parliamentary presents. We thought

:10:25.:10:30.

this would wrongfoot the conservative party conference but it

:10:31.:10:33.

really has not. Anyone who saw Boris Johnson, he was S. He was lamenting

:10:34.:10:41.

the fact that there was a suggestion from any of the other parties to

:10:42.:10:46.

entice him over. He took the issue on head on. Saying that UKIP will

:10:47.:10:54.

not make it. It was a good powerplay. We do not know what the

:10:55.:11:00.

next few days will bring. When they do so strongly in the European

:11:01.:11:05.

election, they were the protest fight. So you cannot vote LibDem to

:11:06.:11:11.

make a statement about the status quo. People never do protest voting

:11:12.:11:20.

in general elections. It also looks like reckless voting may not be able

:11:21.:11:26.

to win. The Daily Mail, the hunt for the British G Hardy. G this girl is

:11:27.:11:42.

gone when her parents come to pick up in the afternoon. She is

:11:43.:11:48.

allegedly wanting to join jihad, going through Turkey into Syria. She

:11:49.:11:52.

was with an older girl so we have to speculate how did she get

:11:53.:11:58.

radicalised, on the Internet? Was in a one aware and watching this? How

:11:59.:12:02.

was she able to pay for a plane to? Was the credit card? And what sort

:12:03.:12:11.

of recruitment was this 17`year`old girl doing to bring her over? What

:12:12.:12:20.

we all know, of course, is the despicable way in which ISIS is

:12:21.:12:27.

treating women. So she may well be bamboozled. It is a sadness that is

:12:28.:12:35.

striking. I have three teenage girls. And you would hope that they

:12:36.:12:40.

would be aware of this, the parents. It speaks to the dangers of

:12:41.:12:47.

radicalising online. If young, impressionable people can be

:12:48.:12:53.

affected by this stuff pouring out of the Internet, can we control of?

:12:54.:12:58.

We want to control the? If it is people under 18, I would say you try

:12:59.:13:05.

to control it. Like they do online pornography. Maybe we should try and

:13:06.:13:11.

do the same thing with this. Also, a social media campaign from mosques.

:13:12.:13:20.

I have seen a video from anti` mum saying do not join this fight, it is

:13:21.:13:27.

kind Islamic. `` imams. `` not Islamic. I want to squeeze this

:13:28.:13:36.

end, the front of The Guardian. Unexpected items... They have told

:13:37.:13:47.

us this. Their slogan is live well, for less. When customers are not

:13:48.:13:56.

looking, place a few extra items into their baskets. That is what

:13:57.:14:00.

supermarket staff should be doing. However I would say it is a PR

:14:01.:14:04.

disaster. They are going to announce new figures showing a drop in sales.

:14:05.:14:08.

To be doing this sort of campaign behind people's backs, that is not

:14:09.:14:13.

look good doublet can play a counterpoint? They are a

:14:14.:14:19.

supermarket. They sell things. It seems like it would be natural to

:14:20.:14:24.

encourage sales staff to want to sell. Just because someone found out

:14:25.:14:32.

this, why do we not assume this? Everytime they go and give me a

:14:33.:14:37.

copy, they offer an upsell. That is what people do. When you go into

:14:38.:14:44.

news agencies and they try to sell you bars of chocolate... Of course.

:14:45.:15:01.

(CROSSTALK) I am going to say good for them for

:15:02.:15:09.

in spy ring their staff to sell more. Thank you very much.
