Coming up in sports Day: Bad news for Jose Mourinho, is a -- Eva

:00:22.:00:25.

Carniero is taking legal action. All that ahead. -- Sportsday.

:00:26.:00:36.

Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers

:00:37.:00:38.

With me are Dan Bilefsky of the New York Times and Tim Montogmerie,

:00:39.:00:43.

Tomorrow's front pages, starting with the FT, which leads with

:00:44.:00:46.

reports that senior European Central Bank officials held meetings with

:00:47.:00:49.

senior figures from the financial service industry in the run-up to

:00:50.:00:52.

making important policy decisions like setting interest rates.

:00:53.:00:58.

It is technology at its best? That isn't working -- British technology.

:00:59.:01:12.

Two papers looking at the same story. David Cameron backs down over

:01:13.:01:26.

plans to bomb Syria. Number 10 are apparently denying on Twitter that

:01:27.:01:31.

these stories are accurate. Perhaps we should leave that for tomorrow.

:01:32.:01:36.

What we do know is that David Cameron has, for a long time, been

:01:37.:01:42.

determined to revisit this issue of military intervention in Syria. He

:01:43.:01:45.

lost that vote a couple of years ago in Parliament, we do now have a

:01:46.:01:52.

majority conservative government and he could potentially get it through

:01:53.:01:56.

the House of Commons. The number of Tory MPs who are very against a

:01:57.:02:00.

military intervention have been saying for a little while, he

:02:01.:02:03.

doesn't have the votes. These stories would appear to confirm

:02:04.:02:07.

that, you doesn't want to put this to the vote in the House of Commons

:02:08.:02:11.

unless he is sure he can win. He can't afford to lose twice. He is

:02:12.:02:22.

being portrayed as a sort of Jeremy Corbyn associate among Conservative.

:02:23.:02:29.

It is not splitting along party lines, people from all parties have

:02:30.:02:33.

differing opinions I do if I had to list the issues which divide the

:02:34.:02:42.

Conservative Party... -- opinions? If I had to. After the Iraq War and

:02:43.:02:51.

Syria, the question of what role Britain plays in intervening in

:02:52.:03:00.

other countries, that probably splits the Conservatives as well as

:03:01.:03:09.

Labour. President Obama has sent advisers. Only advisers at this

:03:10.:03:13.

stage? But, they are there. Not Brits on the ground, but giving

:03:14.:03:18.

strategic advice. There is a perception in this country that

:03:19.:03:22.

Britain is no longer a global player, this plays into that tripe.

:03:23.:03:29.

Not that anyone would wish the issues of Syria on anyone. -- trope.

:03:30.:03:35.

It is true that there is a lot of focus on Britain and its role at the

:03:36.:03:40.

moment. The Syrian crisis, foreign aid, says the Daily Mail, the

:03:41.:03:47.

damning truth. Money for refugees squandered by the UN? It sounds like

:03:48.:04:00.

the million that written donated -- Britain has been squandered on

:04:01.:04:04.

admin? I don't see much evidence in this story showing that the UN has

:04:05.:04:10.

squandered this money. It is very hard to assess it, frankly. It seems

:04:11.:04:17.

like a screaming headlines. -- headline. It says that a lot of the

:04:18.:04:25.

cash is not accounted for, we don't know if it has been spent wisely.

:04:26.:04:36.

The UN and lots of multinational organisations do have a bad

:04:37.:04:38.

reputation of overseeing money. When you have won government, one set of

:04:39.:04:43.

people, it is easier to keep track. When it becomes part of those more

:04:44.:04:49.

remote bodies, such as the UN or the EU, you have trouble with

:04:50.:04:52.

accounting. The Daily Mail has been spouting stories about migrants

:04:53.:04:57.

invading this country, juxtaposed with positive stories such as Cecil

:04:58.:05:07.

the line. Forgive me if I am sceptical. I agree, I think the

:05:08.:05:12.

Daily Mail does have an agenda. It is often covering stories in a

:05:13.:05:16.

negative fashion. I worry about the UN's accountability, we do have to

:05:17.:05:21.

do something to help the people in Syria. The Daily Mail is reluctant

:05:22.:05:30.

thrust to let them into our own countries, or we can try and have

:05:31.:05:33.

them in these refugee camps. Saying we are not going to do anything, not

:05:34.:05:39.

on Syria, not give aid to the camps, not let them come into Europe...

:05:40.:05:46.

That is the epitome of selfishness. The Daily Mirror's headline, and

:05:47.:05:54.

exclusive. It is very early to say about what has really gone on with

:05:55.:05:59.

this plane that came down in the sin eye Peninsula. -- Sinai. They said

:06:00.:06:11.

it was not a result of human error before they even discovered the

:06:12.:06:16.

black box. It is possible that a bomb could have been snuck onto the

:06:17.:06:19.

plane, at this point it is completely speculation. One has to

:06:20.:06:25.

be very, very careful to make hypotheses. The claims that Islamic

:06:26.:06:30.

State is responsible... They said they were, but we have not heard

:06:31.:06:34.

much more about that. Is past history is to go by, these Hollywood

:06:35.:06:40.

style videos of documenting their attacks, or we have here is a Green

:06:41.:06:46.

image of an alleged missile being launched. One needs to be very

:06:47.:06:51.

sceptical. So many vested interests when a plane crashes. The airline

:06:52.:06:57.

operator, the plane company, the country in which it came down. The

:06:58.:07:02.

other question, it is interesting hearing in the Egyptian news,

:07:03.:07:06.

Egyptian authorities immediately said not to assume it is a bomb.

:07:07.:07:13.

They are worried, as many developing countries are, that their security

:07:14.:07:18.

will be seen as weak. The largest number of people who visit Egypt are

:07:19.:07:26.

Russians. They help their tourism. I think there? -- the question at the

:07:27.:07:35.

end of the Mirror's story reveals everything. My opening gambit is

:07:36.:07:44.

never to trust in the opening headline. -- and opening. Changes to

:07:45.:07:56.

the police forces, some of them will take a massive hit and don't feel

:07:57.:07:59.

they will be able to properly police? Last week we were talking

:08:00.:08:05.

about the tax credit, the big cut that the government tried to make

:08:06.:08:09.

which caused all the trouble. We are at the beginning, only half of the

:08:10.:08:14.

deficit has come and another half still have to be made. Police are

:08:15.:08:21.

just one of the cuts. It is a potential stream of headaches for

:08:22.:08:25.

the government. When you have made the cuts, you make the easy cuts

:08:26.:08:30.

first. All the ones yet to be made are difficult. We know there are

:08:31.:08:34.

cuts to be made to police, crime has still fallen. In New York, in 2011,

:08:35.:08:46.

there were some famously significant cuts to the NYPD. At the same time,

:08:47.:08:51.

the murder rate decreased. We are living at a we are seeing cuts

:08:52.:08:57.

across the board. We saw the Weetabix chap who was in hiding, he

:08:58.:09:07.

no longer has a police guard -- Wikileaks. The Times, the Times in

:09:08.:09:18.

London. Not to be confused with any other kind of times. We need to have

:09:19.:09:28.

an arm-wrestle. Family dogs reduce risk of asthma in children. I am

:09:29.:09:33.

pleased to read it, but how is blue it is an amazing story, who doesn't

:09:34.:09:43.

love a cuddly dog -- but how? It is an amazing story. It is

:09:44.:09:47.

counterintuitive, you would expect having a dog would actually cause

:09:48.:09:51.

asthma. This story shows that having a dog activates the immune system

:09:52.:09:57.

against asthma. It is a good news story. It is a global story,

:09:58.:10:02.

everyone can relate to it. You have the headline, are you filthy and of?

:10:03.:10:09.

We need to stop washing our hands and we can have a dog in our home.

:10:10.:10:14.

There is a story in the Telegraph talking about eating... Eating food

:10:15.:10:23.

past its sell by date. It is so difficult to know, but good to know

:10:24.:10:28.

you can have a dog in the house without worrying about the

:10:29.:10:36.

cleanliness. It is bad for children not to be exposed to things that

:10:37.:10:42.

don't allow them to build up a resistance. And this was explored in

:10:43.:10:47.

Sweden, which makes you want to trust it. We mustn't succumb to

:10:48.:10:52.

national stereotypes. The Sun, soft drink alert. Diet Coke heart risk,

:10:53.:11:00.

two dei? It is not difficult to avoid drinking two a day, is it? 25%

:11:01.:11:12.

in danger, soon there will be a story about how it to as

:11:13.:11:23.

Alzheimer's. Die -- Diet Coke, surely there are other brands

:11:24.:11:28.

available. I need to see a study. There is very little detail here at

:11:29.:11:33.

as to the degree, what kind of trial took place to come to this

:11:34.:11:37.

conclusion. It will resonate with a lot of people, because a lot of

:11:38.:11:42.

people drink Diet Coke. Robert, the sceptic in my ear, points out that a

:11:43.:11:47.

25% increase could just be a couple of people. It's something else that

:11:48.:11:52.

you feel like you can't have, isn't it? Everything in moderation is what

:11:53.:11:55.

my mother taught me, which I think is true. The problem is, there is a

:11:56.:12:02.

lot of talk about sugar and soft drink. People think, if they have

:12:03.:12:09.

the diet version, they are not having the calories. Now there is

:12:10.:12:14.

something else wrong. Line you can actually gain weight, it affects

:12:15.:12:19.

your insulin levels. Every day there is a different study coming out,

:12:20.:12:28.

contradicting information. --. You can actually gain weight. This is

:12:29.:12:36.

going to put some people off. The Telegraph, a picture of Margaret

:12:37.:12:48.

Thatcher on the front page. Turning down the Thatcher collection,

:12:49.:12:55.

clothes, jewellery and other items offered at turned down. They are

:12:56.:12:59.

going to be put up for sale. One of the Twitter users is they made the

:13:00.:13:05.

right decision, she said she was not stylish or iconic. Only men would

:13:06.:13:12.

think otherwise. Who is that? Ideology or gender aside, Margaret

:13:13.:13:17.

thatcher was an icon. It is debatable whether she was a fashion

:13:18.:13:21.

icon, but whether you like didn't like her she was an icon particular

:13:22.:13:26.

like her she was an iconparticular particular. Towards the end of her

:13:27.:13:33.

time in office, she wore a lot of the great British fashion brands. Do

:13:34.:13:43.

all politicians deserve an exhibition? I think it is a

:13:44.:13:48.

juxtaposition to go from Alexander McQueen to Margaret Thatcher, I

:13:49.:13:52.

think people would be interested. It was the woman who put prices on the

:13:53.:14:03.

map, wasn't she? She did. What goes inside the handbag, you might call

:14:04.:14:10.

it a pocketbook. -- she was. Would you go to see it? Of course. When it

:14:11.:14:22.

goes to auction, we will put you down for a headscarf and a string of

:14:23.:14:28.

pearls. That is it for the paper review. I hope you come back. Coming

:14:29.:14:35.

up next, it's time for Sportsday. Coming up:

:14:36.:14:47.

"Things can only get worse" if
