Cup next year, but he says he still wants to play as well. That is

:00:00.:00:00.

coming up in Sportsday in the next 15 minutes, straight after The

:00:00.:00:18.

Papers. Hello there and welcome to our look ahead to what The Papers

:00:19.:00:29.

will bring us tomorrow. Let's have a look at the front pages. The

:00:30.:00:35.

Republic strikes back. After a major police operation in Paris in the

:00:36.:00:39.

early hours of this morning. An French police are on the front of

:00:40.:00:43.

the Financial Times there. The Telegraph claims David Cameron is to

:00:44.:00:48.

get a plane with ?10 million for use on long haul government trips.

:00:49.:00:52.

Migrants hoping to come to the UK to join their spouse must learn to

:00:53.:00:56.

speak English first, according to a court ruling reported in the

:00:57.:01:00.

express. The Paris police raids are the main story on the front of the

:01:01.:01:04.

Metro. It claims Charles de Gaulle airport could have been the next

:01:05.:01:07.

target for the attackers. The Guardian highlights the uncertainty

:01:08.:01:10.

of whether the alleged ringleader of the attacks was one of those killed

:01:11.:01:17.

in the raid this morning. We will start with the eye. The Republic

:01:18.:01:22.

strikes back. Islamic State mastermind killed in Paris police

:01:23.:01:26.

raid, intelligence sources say. It is not clear that is the case. We

:01:27.:01:32.

are not sure if that is the case, but what an amazing story. A

:01:33.:01:37.

seven-hour siege. The entire apartment building appears to have

:01:38.:01:42.

been blown up. It is like something out of die-hard. The Metro has a

:01:43.:01:48.

similar eye-catching cover. The Republic strikes back, terminator

:01:49.:01:56.

terminated. They are both showing defiance at what has happened in

:01:57.:02:04.

Paris. The Republic strikes back. Lots of question still present abode

:02:05.:02:11.

failures when it comes to the French authorities. They are playing catch

:02:12.:02:17.

up. They are. They do not know how this guy went from Syria, they do

:02:18.:02:27.

not know how he got back again, how he masterminded this from Belgium

:02:28.:02:31.

and ended up in a flat in Paris. From what we are reading, it sounds

:02:32.:02:40.

like the lead to this flat was evidence from the concert hall.

:02:41.:02:46.

Revenge is an extraordinarily powerful feeling and that would be a

:02:47.:02:51.

sense of catharsis from this. A lot of people in France will be we are

:02:52.:02:57.

doing something at last. But this is a firefight in a suburb in a major

:02:58.:03:06.

city. It is an extraordinary event. After five days of extraordinary

:03:07.:03:09.

events and we are still having these major, major incidents and this I

:03:10.:03:17.

say as the music man, news stories as well. They were plotting an

:03:18.:03:25.

another attack on the Charles de Gaulle airport, the second busiest

:03:26.:03:29.

airport in Europe. They were tempted to wait to see them going into

:03:30.:03:34.

operation, but the thought that would be too dangerous. They ended

:03:35.:03:39.

up going in and as we know the ringleaderAPPLAUSE

:03:40.:03:41.

Cousin blew herself up with a suicide belt and it appears that she

:03:42.:03:46.

was trying to put herself off as someone who was innocent and the

:03:47.:03:51.

security forces were smart enough to not trust it and then she blew

:03:52.:03:54.

herself up. They stopped what would have been a

:03:55.:03:59.

horrific follow up. I think it was good intelligence. The suggestion

:04:00.:04:11.

here from two papers that the supposed ringleader, the mastermind

:04:12.:04:15.

of the attacks last Friday, that he is somehow dead as a result of that

:04:16.:04:23.

raid this morning. Let's go to the Guardian. Police attack group that

:04:24.:04:29.

was ready to strike. You mention the business district and Charles de

:04:30.:04:34.

Gaulle as well. That is the real fear, that as long as the prime

:04:35.:04:40.

suspects, two of them, are still on the run then more attacks could well

:04:41.:04:48.

be being planned. This is the big question. How many heads did this

:04:49.:04:54.

Hydra have? We do not know how extensive the Islamic State

:04:55.:04:58.

operation on mainland Europe is war in the UK. We do not know how well

:04:59.:05:05.

coordinated it is. It could be that each time they will seek revenge

:05:06.:05:12.

themselves if they feel the French police and security services are

:05:13.:05:14.

making progress in tracking them down. There are big questions about

:05:15.:05:24.

the comparison between British security services and French

:05:25.:05:27.

security services. Are we better or worse? We do not know. They had

:05:28.:05:33.

Charlie Hebdo and yet it is France which has been targeted again. There

:05:34.:05:37.

are questions, without slurring the authorities in France, about our

:05:38.:05:43.

date using the same techniques we are using at GCHQ, do they have the

:05:44.:05:48.

right powers they need to do surveillance without infringing on

:05:49.:05:52.

the word liberty, which is at the heart of the French way of life.

:05:53.:05:55.

These are difficult questions for the French government. Can I just

:05:56.:06:02.

picked up on the one part of the Guardian story? We are both

:06:03.:06:06.

intrigued by the front page of the Guardian. Why did they put the

:06:07.:06:09.

mustard in the middle. It looks a little strange. They did this last

:06:10.:06:21.

night as well. We are talking about it and that was the idea. In

:06:22.:06:27.

particular, the French president repeating to the French Mayers that

:06:28.:06:37.

him saying France is in a war. They were targeting what France

:06:38.:06:41.

represents. I had that because when I was at the State Department, the

:06:42.:06:47.

US was widely condemned for Bush using the words that we were at

:06:48.:06:55.

war. This was after September 11. I still have people say, the problem

:06:56.:06:59.

is that Bush should never have called it a war and the response was

:07:00.:07:03.

what would you call it when you are attacked? It is also not a police

:07:04.:07:07.

menu fur, you are not sending individuals to get evidence, it is

:07:08.:07:11.

not a crime scene for fingerprints, you are at war and that put you on a

:07:12.:07:16.

different setting. It is fascinating that the French have gone straight

:07:17.:07:21.

into the war paradigms the same as the US did. Does it take a direct

:07:22.:07:27.

attack on the homeland for that happened? We had seven July. We did

:07:28.:07:38.

not use the word war. It is just interesting that Francois Hollande

:07:39.:07:40.

has used it and used it consistently. I also note that there

:07:41.:07:47.

are still quite a few people in hospital. 195. 41 in intensive care.

:07:48.:07:58.

Three on life support. There are still thoughts and prayers needed.

:07:59.:08:04.

They have only now established the identities of everyone who died. The

:08:05.:08:09.

front of the Telegraph. The key EU border scandal. This man was the

:08:10.:08:13.

alleged ringleader. How did he get to Paris question what he was

:08:14.:08:18.

supposed to be in Syria, he seemed to come and go freely. Questions

:08:19.:08:25.

here about the EU borders. This is the issue of Schengen, of having

:08:26.:08:30.

open borders, the free movement zone within mainland Europe. Britain is

:08:31.:08:38.

not part of it. Is it sustainable? Is it sustainable because if you can

:08:39.:08:46.

enter through Greece or hungry just to pick two countries at random and

:08:47.:08:50.

end up in Paris to carry out a terrorist atrocity, can that be

:08:51.:08:56.

continued? The European Union have said that Schengen should state, it

:08:57.:09:00.

has advantages for the majority of people. Anyone who has gone on

:09:01.:09:05.

holiday where you can drive across the border from Holland into Germany

:09:06.:09:09.

or from Belgium to France, it is a wonderful thing. You are now coming

:09:10.:09:17.

up against whether we had to sacrifice our liberties to stop a

:09:18.:09:19.

minority and that is a difficult question. That is precisely what

:09:20.:09:27.

they want. The Telegraph is fairly Eurosceptic and they have gone with

:09:28.:09:30.

this because it is a way of attacking Europe as well. I can

:09:31.:09:34.

understand why they have done that. This is not just about Schengen

:09:35.:09:39.

itself, but the whole structure of the European Union. Is that also

:09:40.:09:45.

sustainable? The European Union is still sustainable. Just because they

:09:46.:09:48.

taken the borders during this difficult time, I do not think that

:09:49.:09:52.

brings down the whole EU project. You can still have free movement of

:09:53.:09:56.

goods and services but say we will have stronger border controls during

:09:57.:10:03.

this time. I think the European Commission indicating that they will

:10:04.:10:06.

resist any attempt to try to strengthen border security at this

:10:07.:10:11.

time is not politically the best thing for them to say. They need to

:10:12.:10:14.

say that take another look at this, let's look at what we can do in

:10:15.:10:21.

these serious times. White not? It is the cornerstone of European

:10:22.:10:24.

integration as far as the French and Germans see it. It just means that

:10:25.:10:31.

we still have to go through security check at the airport. Why can't that

:10:32.:10:39.

be done at the border? Then it is not a free movement zone, is it?

:10:40.:10:46.

You'd still need a passport. Just like we do at the airport. We still

:10:47.:10:53.

have two show our passports. How long have we got? Interest rates

:10:54.:11:04.

will rise. I am more interested in Cameron and his playing. I am an

:11:05.:11:16.

expert on this. I have flown on a plane with Tony Blair, with Gordon

:11:17.:11:21.

Brown and with the David Cameron. We are the only leading nation which

:11:22.:11:27.

does not have our own play in for the Prime Minister. We do not have

:11:28.:11:41.

an Air Force One. Tony Blair signed off for two U aeroplanes, one for

:11:42.:11:46.

the Royal family, one for the Prime Minister. Gordon Brown said we

:11:47.:11:52.

cannot afford this and cut it off. I have landed at word summits and you

:11:53.:11:56.

go down the land -- line and you have the changing plane and all

:11:57.:11:59.

these jumbos and we have this tiny little thing. Downing Street

:12:00.:12:05.

chartered a plane from an American chain of bars. We turned up in a

:12:06.:12:25.

plane from this company. I have also shown an extraordinarily expensive

:12:26.:12:30.

private jet they have charted. One I bought it and they asked if I wanted

:12:31.:12:37.

champagne. The bottom line is that David Cameron will get his own

:12:38.:12:43.

aeroplane. There are a lot of people will say that if you are making

:12:44.:12:46.

cuts, you cannot get a private plane. It saves money at the end of

:12:47.:12:54.

the day. It is surprising, but it saves money. We will be back in an

:12:55.:13:08.

hour. We were at the latest on the police raid in Paris following the

:13:09.:13:16.

terrorist attacks in the French capital. For now, it is time for

:13:17.:13:17.
