attempts as Liverpool manager. Sam bogus -- Burgess is expected to make

:00:00.:00:00.

a decision about switching back his allegiance in rugby. More sport

:00:00.:00:17.

after the papers. Welcome to our look ahead to what the papers are

:00:18.:00:20.

bringing us tomorrow. We are joined tonight by the daily Mirror

:00:21.:00:27.

columnist Susan Boniface and James Martin. Good evening to you both.

:00:28.:00:33.

That's some of the front pages. The Independent has a story that police

:00:34.:00:37.

have used powers under the terrorism act to seize the laptop of a BBC

:00:38.:00:42.

Newsnight journalist who has been investigating Western born

:00:43.:00:45.

jihadists. The Financial Times leads on a review calling for a third of

:00:46.:00:50.

board seats at Britain passed my biggest companies to be held by

:00:51.:00:56.

women by 2020. Job advisers will be based in food banks after the idea

:00:57.:01:02.

was pioneered in Manchester. The Daily Telegraph was showing Prince

:01:03.:01:11.

Harry laughing with Michelle Obama. In the Guardian, they said there

:01:12.:01:20.

were warning signs and these were ignored regarding kids company. The

:01:21.:01:27.

England World Cup date was secretly doomed because of a deal to award

:01:28.:01:31.

the tournament to Russia. In the Daily Express, please have run out

:01:32.:01:36.

of clues as they scale back the search for Madeleine McCann. In the

:01:37.:01:41.

Guardian, the headline, ministers ignored repeated warnings on Kids

:01:42.:01:45.

Company. Does this reveal anything new? Yes, and it does not. What is

:01:46.:01:52.

shocking is the kind of knew that, for many years, repeated government

:01:53.:01:56.

of various colours had been very keen on Karl Andree and given it

:01:57.:02:03.

lots of money. This report shows that the Government of David Cameron

:02:04.:02:07.

and Gordon Brown have repeatedly intervened to keep giving money to

:02:08.:02:10.

Kids Company when there appears to be problems. More than that, they

:02:11.:02:15.

have given a total of ?15 million over 15 years without apparently

:02:16.:02:18.

once ever having involved a competitive process for those

:02:19.:02:21.

grants, which every of the charity in the country would have had to

:02:22.:02:27.

have gone through. Why would Kids Company behave like a proper

:02:28.:02:31.

charity, with cash reserves and an audit trail and transparency, if the

:02:32.:02:35.

Government who is handing them money does not ever once expect them to do

:02:36.:02:40.

that? You can almost forgive them for thinking money was falling out

:02:41.:02:43.

of the sky because it was, effectively. What is really damaging

:02:44.:02:50.

is, right at the end, in 2013, the Department for Education, under

:02:51.:02:53.

David Blunkett, I think it was then, no, it was not, it was the Tories,

:02:54.:02:59.

decided there was a public interest case on the basis government would

:03:00.:03:03.

suffer reputational damage if it stopped funding them. That is

:03:04.:03:06.

because they are either being blackmailed to some extent. If you

:03:07.:03:09.

stop giving us money, we will make you look back. More likely, they are

:03:10.:03:14.

doing the job the Government should have been doing and funding the

:03:15.:03:20.

charity. Kids Company does not come out well. Various departments do not

:03:21.:03:24.

come out well. The people who come out of it worse on the ones who rely

:03:25.:03:29.

on Kids Company. Sir Mark and we should never forget people who use

:03:30.:03:37.

the services. -- We should never forget. It does confirm the series

:03:38.:03:43.

of stories we have been getting about Kids Company having a spell

:03:44.:03:46.

over various government ministers. The ministers, time and again, we

:03:47.:03:53.

should not forget that five days before Kids Company was declared

:03:54.:03:58.

bankrupt, it got another 3 million from the Government. David Cameron

:03:59.:04:03.

intervenes and said, no, we have to give Camilla some money. It is

:04:04.:04:11.

unprecedented to open the chequebook. They said they were

:04:12.:04:16.

doing lots of fantastic stuff. The people they helped said they were

:04:17.:04:22.

doing a lot of fantastic stuff. There was no audit trail or

:04:23.:04:25.

paperwork and you could not be sure harmony be but they were helping and

:04:26.:04:31.

in what way they were helping. All charities do great work. Why was

:04:32.:04:36.

this charity so special? This is what does not come up in the audit

:04:37.:04:42.

office report. This charity's chief executive got to go on question Time

:04:43.:04:50.

quite often, that is why. In the Metro, picking up on the story we

:04:51.:04:54.

have been talking about today. Duncan Smith says he wants to try

:04:55.:04:58.

out job advisers being based at food banks. It has broadly been welcomed.

:04:59.:05:06.

Except that for the past five years, Iain Duncan Smith has insisted there

:05:07.:05:10.

is no need for food banks, the trust is running the food banks is making

:05:11.:05:15.

it up and imagining there is a problem. Now he will start to put

:05:16.:05:23.

government advisers in there. Iain Duncan Smith might be missing the

:05:24.:05:27.

point about the key users of food banks. A quarter of them have jobs.

:05:28.:05:32.

Are those job advisers saying you will need another job. That is what

:05:33.:05:37.

one of the organisations told us tonight on BBC News. A lot of them

:05:38.:05:43.

already have jobs. Sign it is not an issue of food banks and

:05:44.:05:46.

unemployment, it is an issue of people not being paid enough to do

:05:47.:05:50.

the jobs they have. With tax credit cuts, there are small lightly to be

:05:51.:05:56.

greater numbers using the food banks. Moving onto the times. It

:05:57.:06:01.

will make many football fans feel quite sick when they read this

:06:02.:06:06.

tomorrow. Secret Fifa deal ruined England's World Cup bid. This is not

:06:07.:06:11.

coming from a journalist, this is coming from Sepp Blatter. This is an

:06:12.:06:17.

amazing interview that Sepp Blatter gave to the Tass news agency in

:06:18.:06:23.

Russia today. He has essentially dropped that any right in it.

:06:24.:06:30.

Essentially going he is saying, before it went to vote that Russia,

:06:31.:06:36.

and then the US were going to get the World Cups. We put up 21 minim

:06:37.:06:41.

plans to try to get the World Cup. 2 million came direct from taxpayers.

:06:42.:06:46.

Surely we should be asking for some of that back. The president of the

:06:47.:06:50.

FA was asked that exact question and he said he would look at that

:06:51.:06:55.

again. That chance of getting any of that money. They wanted it to be in

:06:56.:07:02.

Eastern Europe and in America. Sepp Blatter has said, we agreed it was

:07:03.:07:11.

going to Russia and then America. When it came to the boat, Nicolas

:07:12.:07:13.

Sarkozy had lunch with a guy from Qatar and then lunch with teeny and

:07:14.:07:18.

they decided it was going to Qatar. Corruption did not work the way Sepp

:07:19.:07:23.

Blatter thought it would. It was corrupt in a different way. Votes do

:07:24.:07:30.

count for something... We spent ?21 million. It is not so much a case of

:07:31.:07:36.

getting our money back, we should have an audit of how we spent the

:07:37.:07:40.

money. We should have just gone to lunch with Nicolas Sarkozy. Surely

:07:41.:07:47.

we must get 1 million of the 21 million back? Do we totally trust

:07:48.:07:53.

anything that Sepp Blatter is saying? He is being investigated on

:07:54.:07:58.

two continents. He is head of an organisation eg has been in charge

:07:59.:08:04.

of for two decades. He has a lot to fight for, to win, and Toulouse. I'm

:08:05.:08:12.

not sure many of us would trust him. This has become like a bad

:08:13.:08:21.

carry on film. Eye-macro none of the eight candidates have talked about

:08:22.:08:25.

Russia not hosting the World Cup or Qatar either. In the Telegraph,

:08:26.:08:32.

fantastic picture. It shows Prince Charming meeting the First Lady. It

:08:33.:08:37.

makes you wonder what it is he has them too hard to produce that kind

:08:38.:08:42.

of smile. I did not say that. What is really good, for the first time

:08:43.:08:49.

in living history, we have a generation in the Royal family, two

:08:50.:08:52.

princes, you are doing really good work. They are doing stuff we all

:08:53.:08:57.

approve of. Prince William is flying helicopters and saving lives and

:08:58.:09:01.

Prince Harry is trying to raise awareness with the Invicta 's games

:09:02.:09:05.

and for paralysed people and veterans, people who have lost

:09:06.:09:12.

limbs. It is fantastic stuff. People who complain about the Royals, they

:09:13.:09:16.

do not have jobs and so on, Kate Middleton can start working any time

:09:17.:09:20.

she likes. The fact they are doing this needs to be praised. There is

:09:21.:09:26.

no secret why this is on many front pages. This is marrying Prince

:09:27.:09:33.

Harry's passions of the Armed Forces and charity work. It is the perfect

:09:34.:09:45.

role for him. The Invictus Games was a huge success and is being hosted

:09:46.:09:50.

in America next time. Eye-macro they are clearly getting on. In the

:09:51.:09:56.

Financial Times, -- They are clearly getting on. In the Financial Times,

:09:57.:10:02.

by 2020 women to hold a third of all board suits. They are reporting a

:10:03.:10:09.

lack of females. When the target was first set a few years back, in 2011,

:10:10.:10:15.

the target at the time, women held just 12% of positions. Setting a

:10:16.:10:23.

target does help. They have never hit it before. It needs to be a

:10:24.:10:29.

voluntary target. Setting a quote of anything, whether gender or race,

:10:30.:10:33.

makes me want to peak. If you can get more women involved on

:10:34.:10:39.

billboards and women not see the reason to stop work just because

:10:40.:10:44.

they have had children and want to keep on going... What about the

:10:45.:10:51.

Labour short list? If you have a quota system where you must have a

:10:52.:10:54.

certain type of person to get in, you do not get the best quality

:10:55.:10:59.

candidates. They should compete on a level playing field. If you have the

:11:00.:11:03.

problem that people selecting them are biased and prejudiced, you are

:11:04.:11:09.

not changing it. It is an interesting point. It is the same

:11:10.:11:13.

time the Davis commission report is coming out. You have a separate

:11:14.:11:17.

report from an executive hiring firm. We have a real roadblock of

:11:18.:11:23.

talented, female executives coming through. They are predicting that we

:11:24.:11:27.

will see less executives in the city. It is a bit more complicated

:11:28.:11:34.

than just putting in a law. It is not just about who is on the board.

:11:35.:11:39.

If they are on the board and they are getting half of what men get, it

:11:40.:11:45.

is not fair, is it? We have a couple of permits to look at the story in

:11:46.:11:52.

the Independent. Outrage at BBC over seizure of journalist's laptop

:11:53.:11:57.

following a Judge Posner order. We all know this producer very well. --

:11:58.:12:07.

a judge's order. From a media and career point of view, he has

:12:08.:12:12.

something great to put on his CV now. Bravo to him! Is this the right

:12:13.:12:19.

thing that police should be using terrorism powers for? These guys and

:12:20.:12:23.

he has been talking to, yes, they are very important and hard to find.

:12:24.:12:29.

A lot of people also use Twitter, Facebook, snap chat. These guys who

:12:30.:12:33.

have gone over from Britain to join ices are not exactly in deep hiding.

:12:34.:12:38.

It feels that this is a bit of a point proving exercise from the

:12:39.:12:43.

police. It is about seeking a court order for something. There are

:12:44.:12:50.

hundreds of jihadists, probably, who have been spoken to by jealous and

:12:51.:12:53.

reported on by newspapers and by TV companies. Some of them are using

:12:54.:12:56.

pseudonyms and some of them are not. They are so easy to find and they

:12:57.:13:02.

are happy to talk to people back here. You just need to say you are a

:13:03.:13:08.

journalist. They should be doing something better than asking the BBC

:13:09.:13:14.

to do their work for them. He knew he would have to give up this

:13:15.:13:19.

information. The BBC has pointed out it was not a confidential source on

:13:20.:13:23.

the laptop, which would be even more worrying. We are going to do it

:13:24.:13:31.

again at 11:30 p.m.. Thanks to you for watching as well. We'll be back

:13:32.:13:38.

at 11:30 p.m.. Coming up, on BBC News, at 11 p.m., more on the fatal

:13:39.:13:45.

stabbing of a schoolboy in Aberdeen. Ahead of that, it is the
