Sorry we kept you, thank you for bearing with us.

:00:20.:00:23.

Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be

:00:24.:00:26.

With me are the broadcaster Alice Arnold and sports

:00:27.:00:29.

The FT reports that the US is urging China to punish North Korea after it

:00:30.:00:33.

launched a long-range missile without warning.

:00:34.:00:35.

The Independent says David Cameron is poised

:00:36.:00:37.

to turn his back on the Conservatives' tough policy

:00:38.:00:39.

on prisons by admitting the stance has been a "scandalous

:00:40.:00:41.

The Express claims the former Shadow Home Secretary

:00:42.:00:44.

David Davis has warned that the Prime Minister's deal on EU

:00:45.:00:47.

reform won't stop a fresh surge of migrants.

:00:48.:00:49.

The Guardian says the EU is preparing new legislation

:00:50.:00:52.

to make global firms more transparent over their tax dealings.

:00:53.:00:55.

The Metro alleges that a so-called Islamic State fanatic

:00:56.:01:00.

made his way to Syria on a convoy organised by former MP George

:01:01.:01:03.

In a statement tonight, he insisted he didn't know Alexanda

:01:04.:01:08.

The Times suggests that agency medics

:01:09.:01:12.

are using the junior doctors dispute to demand higher rates

:01:13.:01:14.

And finally, the Mirror says a father

:01:15.:01:17.

who lost his daughter in the 7/7 terror attacks says he was upset

:01:18.:01:20.

that a bus was blown up as part of a film stunt near the Houses

:01:21.:01:24.

of Parliament - echoing the real atrocity.

:01:25.:01:32.

That's a lot to get through. The FT. What's been happening in North Korea

:01:33.:01:40.

with this rocket test. The US is trying to punish John Yapp for

:01:41.:01:47.

rocket tests, it says. They will take this carefully. The last thing

:01:48.:01:53.

China wants is to destabilise North Korea, and have thousands of

:01:54.:01:56.

migrants coming over the border into China. They want to tread very, very

:01:57.:02:01.

carefully on this. It seems that China is not quite so supportive of

:02:02.:02:05.

what North Korea is doing as it might have been some years ago. No,

:02:06.:02:12.

they are worried about it, but not keen to take action. Whereas the US

:02:13.:02:17.

and South Korea have begun formal talks about deploying an advanced

:02:18.:02:23.

defence system which is called the terminal high-altitude defence

:02:24.:02:26.

platform. The word terminal is very worrying! Missiles to counteract the

:02:27.:02:32.

missiles and they will fight each other in the air without bombing

:02:33.:02:35.

others on the ground. That is what they want to put into place. We need

:02:36.:02:40.

to move on quickly because we have a lot to get through. We'll be back

:02:41.:02:45.

with a longer version later. Ban high denomination notes to cut

:02:46.:02:49.

crimes as a bank chief. How will that help? Criminals use these big

:02:50.:02:55.

notes, you know when you watch the films and they open the briefcase

:02:56.:02:59.

and there are all these big notes, they are all ?100 notes, or $100

:03:00.:03:04.

notes and if they banned those, the bike would have to be bigger because

:03:05.:03:08.

the money would be in five is! So if they banned the big denominations it

:03:09.:03:12.

would be harder for criminals to launder money. I would prefer it if

:03:13.:03:17.

it was less easy to send the money to the British Virgin Islands and

:03:18.:03:21.

move it around the world and basically launder it. It's a good

:03:22.:03:27.

story, and papers over the cracks, literally, but the amount of money,

:03:28.:03:33.

that he will see changed in cash is low compared to the amount that is

:03:34.:03:37.

moved around the world to avoid taxes. And done so and electronic

:03:38.:03:48.

leave. The Guardian. London is identified as -- Londoners

:03:49.:03:53.

identified as part of an Isis hostage cell. There are some

:03:54.:04:00.

nicknamed after the Beatles, the Fab four because they were four of them

:04:01.:04:08.

involved in the executions. It's not a surprise they are from London.

:04:09.:04:13.

Young Muslims in Britain are being made militant by what is going on

:04:14.:04:19.

over there. Supposedly they are going on a mission to help people

:04:20.:04:23.

because it often starts, radicalisation, with the urge to

:04:24.:04:26.

help the people who are suffering and then it can be perverted easily

:04:27.:04:30.

by what you hear on the ground and you see the actuality and the

:04:31.:04:36.

violence of it. Another story to do with this same man in the metro,

:04:37.:04:43.

Daesh killer, it is suggested that this picture was on an aid convoy

:04:44.:04:52.

organised by George Galloway. The same story, there seems to have been

:04:53.:04:58.

some identification that has taken place, not confirmed by everyone,

:04:59.:05:00.

confirmed by the metro and the Guardian. This gang of four that you

:05:01.:05:08.

are talking about possibly went out. George Galloway says he doesn't know

:05:09.:05:12.

the name and has never heard of it. Yes, we have the statement from a

:05:13.:05:17.

spokesman for Mr Galloway saying that he had never heard of this

:05:18.:05:22.

manner until his name was in press reports this weekend. The statement

:05:23.:05:25.

says the aid convoy predates the formation of Islamic State and there

:05:26.:05:30.

were 120 vehicles and hundreds of people on them. He says that even

:05:31.:05:35.

though he was on the convoy he has no recollection of this man. He says

:05:36.:05:39.

that Mr Galloway did not know the name of this man, it was possible he

:05:40.:05:44.

could have been on that trip, George doesn't know his name. I can see the

:05:45.:05:49.

value of the news bringing Galloway into it, it is politicising it. If

:05:50.:05:54.

you are a young Muslim it would make you even angrier. What has it got to

:05:55.:06:05.

do with George Galloway! Demonised. Seven years ago. The story in the

:06:06.:06:08.

Guardian, more sensibly, says that this group had all possibly attended

:06:09.:06:15.

the same mosque, the musk says that so many people attended and that

:06:16.:06:22.

they don't know if these people did. The Independent says, treat

:06:23.:06:25.

prisoners as assets and not liabilities, says the Prime

:06:26.:06:29.

Minister. This sounds quite progressive. David Cameron says the

:06:30.:06:32.

prison system has been a scandalous failure for years. Not the kind of

:06:33.:06:35.

thing you would expect from the Conservatives. It's interesting. He

:06:36.:06:42.

hasn't talked about the prison system the 20 years. And everything

:06:43.:06:46.

you are reading about what he says, one would have expected it to have

:06:47.:06:50.

been said by a Labour Prime Minister, not a Tory one. He's

:06:51.:06:53.

talking about more community service, there are problems with

:06:54.:06:59.

that, been a magistrate, I know this, but tagging people instead of

:07:00.:07:05.

getting prisoners in prison and more rehabilitation and less punishment.

:07:06.:07:07.

Budget ideological or something else? Cameron is more socially

:07:08.:07:14.

liberal than many people credit for. I'm not saying it is nice, I'm

:07:15.:07:19.

saying he is socially liberal! We need to decide what exactly

:07:20.:07:25.

prisoners are for, punishment or rehabilitation. Make a decision and

:07:26.:07:29.

work down that path. They could be both. A deprivation of liberty and

:07:30.:07:35.

the chance rehabilitation. It says that prisoners can't do the

:07:36.:07:39.

rehabilitation because the prisons are overcrowded. If they have to be

:07:40.:07:43.

locked up 23 hours a day they don't have time to send them on courses

:07:44.:07:46.

and make them productive citizens when they leave. The repeat

:07:47.:07:52.

offenders figures show it isn't working and he knows that and he

:07:53.:07:56.

will try to move in that direction. The daily Mirror, the headline says

:07:57.:08:02.

tasteless, thoughtless, Marana, about the huge explosion of a bus on

:08:03.:08:07.

Lambeth Bridge very close to the Houses of Parliament. This sparked

:08:08.:08:11.

panic, causing trauma for survivors and relatives of those who died on

:08:12.:08:18.

the July seven attacks. I live in that area, and I pass this kind of

:08:19.:08:21.

thing all the time, when they were filming the James Bond movies they

:08:22.:08:25.

closed the bridges and they were doing these things all the time. It

:08:26.:08:30.

is quite clear that it is not a terrorist incident. There were signs

:08:31.:08:35.

everywhere. Food fans with the extras are queueing up, roadblocks.

:08:36.:08:42.

-- food fans. When you see the picture on its own it does look

:08:43.:08:45.

terrible and you could imagine that would scare people. In reality, when

:08:46.:08:51.

you are coming down there, it blocks the traffic and annoys you but it is

:08:52.:08:57.

clear that it's a film. It is conceivable that if you heard the

:08:58.:09:00.

bang it would be terrifying to anyone. When I saw that picture I

:09:01.:09:07.

thought, golly, I missed that today. My next thought was, that is some

:09:08.:09:11.

Phil Mustard, that picture looks amazing. If anyone in the vicinity

:09:12.:09:18.

doesn't know that that is a movie, I would be shocked. That's the daily

:09:19.:09:21.

Mirror, we'll be back with more front pages if we can find any more,

:09:22.:09:27.

we did well there! To comment on the headlines, please send us a tweet.

:09:28.:09:40.

Stay with us. At 11 o'clock, the UK joins the condemnation of North

:09:41.:09:44.

Korea's launching a long-range missile. A second look at the papers

:09:45.:09:49.

with Alice and Tony at 11:30pm. Now the
