South Africa won by one wicket. We will also have the Rugby Union and


Super League scores. Hello and welcome to


our look ahead to what the papers With me are the Daily Telegraph's


political correspondent Ben Riley-Smith, and Eleanor Mills,


editorial director of the The Independent leads with news


of attacks by far-right militia The Times says stolen bank card


details are available on an illegal website for as little as ?1.67 The


Mail criticises police forces for refusing to reveal the names of some


wanted suspects - it says they cited data protection


and human rights laws as a reason. The Mirror carries news of a drug


used to treat cancer which, it's According to the Telegraph,


NHS inspectors are set to trawl through social media to pick up


on criticisms of poor healthcare. The FT says banks have been fighting


back to try restore investor confidence


on the world's stock markets. The Guardian says ministers are


considering putting all convicted Islamist terrorist prisoners in


one single secure unit - a British And The Sun leads with the latest on


the court case involving footballer Adam Johnson, accused of sexual


activity with a 15-year-old girl. We will begin with the Guardian. Tia


Sharp transplant for Islamist terrorists. Guardian, you will get


rubbished. It is an incredibly exciting headline, but... Ministers


are seriously considering putting all Islamist terrorists in a single


secure unit. The PM said this last week, so this is a classic case of


reheating an old story. It was reported everywhere. The bits they


do have that our extra are some of the places they could have one of


these prisons. One of them near Durham, one in West Yorkshire. There


is absolutely nothing. I think someone looked at the front page and


thought, world's 50 best beaches, that looks exotic. Alcatraz will fit


in! If this idea were to take root would it be a sensible idea? To put


people with similar ideologies in one place? David Cameron said they


were considering doing this, because I think it is quite sensible. We


don't want all the terrorist prisoners all radicalising other


people in prisons, and there has been a lot of that going on. It has


been a real problem, but the kind of creed has been spread within prisons


from people who have already been radicalised to others. That is what


they are worried about. A bit like the prisons we saw in Northern


Ireland during the height of the troubles. Exactly. There is a real


concern within government and prison circles that this is like a kind of


virus that gets infected into the rest of the system. Is there any


talk that if they are all put together they will be simply


radicalising programmes? To play devil's advocate, how much time to


the police spent trying to break up sleeper cells in Britain? Is it a


fantastic idea to put them all in the same place so they can spend


days on end chatting about it? And making themselves a nice tie itself


when they get out. Prison is a kind of university for crime, people


going without having done anything bad and come out with a network.


Whether there is any truth in it. The Daily Mail, we won't name


fugitives. Human rights. This is the police, isn't it, saying that they


can't say who they are because of these laws. What is interesting


about this is that basically the Daily Mail asked 45 police forces on


a freedom of information request, how many people they had on their


wanted list and who they were, and 21 forces refuse to give their


names. This is pretty serious crimes, child abuse, murder,


kidnapping and rape. 21 forces would not give them the names on privacy


grounds under the Human Rights Act, and our old friend data protection.


You can understand why people get hot under the collar. There are


times when people get data protection wrong, don't they? This


has happened in the past, with police forces not sharing


information with each other which has caused the problem trying to


keep track of people. Surely there are issues where they have two tread


carefully. You can be fined a lot of money if you get it wrong. And there


is the function that you are innocent until proven guilty. This


doesn't go into the details, but some of these people are petty


criminals, petty theft, should it be a principle that anyone who is


suspected of a crime should be publicly named and shamed by the


police? I think it is shocking that the police are so confused about


what data protection means. Wightman is this a first for you agreeing


with the Daily Mail headline? It may be. The Times, stolen credit cards.


This is all down to hacking. This is saying that 100,000 British people


having credit card details available on the internet. You can buy


people's data for ?1 67. It is shocking that this is in plain


sight. They even have a consumer kind of line, so it was quite an


organised operation. Online fraud is the biggest growing area of crime.


?27 billion of online crime. Everyone has to be extra careful


about their passwords. It is so difficult to remember them all it is


tempting to have the same one for lots of different accounts. You


don't want to do that. Are done, but it is tempting. I don't know if you


have done this before, but sending your account details to yourself.


People have so many details were different accounts that they have


started e-mailing them to themselves. That is incredibly


insecure. And you don't need your cat or your kids names or the name


of your cat, because you can find a lot of that out on social media, and


work out a lot of passwords. What do you do to shut down these sites?


This is a site operating in the normal internet, how do you do


that? They just pop up somewhere else. The Daily Telegraph, Facebook


inspections to find poor social care. They are going to be having a


look, looking on social media. I think this is a great idea, don't


you? I think the principle of the NHS and regulators looking beyond


official data when inspectors come in is not a bad idea, and why not


use information that is out there in public domain to try to get a more


360 degrees vision on the services being provided? Sign however, there


is a 25% funding cut to proper expenses to inspections by the


quality care Council. That means there will be a reduction in the


number of inspectors going around and looking at stuff, and trawling


through Facebook and things they see as a kind of sticking plaster for


the fact that there are big cuts to what is important. If you think


about some of the terrible scandals in some NHS hospitals. They are now


cutting inspections by 25%, so a lot of that will go uncovered. I don't


think a little trawl through social media is the same as going into a


hospital. Wouldn't it be better to make it easier for people to come


forward with complaints? The headline is all about Facebook, but


the new head of the CQC, who was interviewed, goes into many things


like looking at patient complaints and contacting patient groups. It is


not just that, it is the idea of widening out your investigation is a


good idea. Not of it is just a mask cuts. Assad vows to retake the whole


of Syria. The balance of power has really turned back to President


Assad in recent weeks. We are on the brink of an agreement to cease


bombing and to try to get some more normality in the country that has


been ripped, and then Assad goes to invite the media to his palace and


says, screw that! He said this before the big announcements about


ceasefires. But they have made so many games, the suspicion is why


they agree to any kind of compromise. He is not going to stop


now, he has been ruthless in the way he has bombed his own people. He now


has Putin helping him, why would he stop? Some say the Russians are


ready to have talks with the US. Bombing some places... Turkey are


key in this, because they don't want to end up in the wrong side. It is


so complicated because there are so many different interests. And they


are at loggerheads with Russia. And then ISIS is not saying they are


going to stop bombing anyone, so... Camera and dilutes sugar tax plan.


The sounds that he is making a syrup. Alevi threat if producers


fail to act. Food campaigners, like Jamie Oliver, have been hammering


away at this. He is through through Tory on things like tax, he doesn't


want to tax people. If he can strong arm them into voluntarily reducing


sugar content, rather than a sugar tax? Sign doesn't this feel like a


total paid into the food and drinks lobby? Thinking that something like


Coca-Cola off --or Kelloggs is going to make a modest cut and that will


solve our obesity crisis? What is the proof that a sugar tax will make


any difference? In Mexico they think it reduced consumption by around


12%. About 55% of writs are in favour of it, and what Jamie Oliver


says in his own restaurants, where he has put his own tax on it, is


that the money could be used for extra sport and education


programmes, so you could ring-fence that money to do something with it.


Isn't it down to parents to say, sorry, not having it. You know how


it is as a parent. Yes, and you ultimately have to no. Ask my kids,


I'm very good at at saying no. I ban fizzy drinks, but it is the devil.


But everywhere you go, it is sugar. The other criticism is that putting


a sugar tax on fizzy drinks will not stop children from eating sugar. We


are not thinking about chocolate or... Fizzy drinks are the real


danger. You have ten or 12 spoonfuls of sugar. But it won't stop obesity


in kids. It is calories that people don't even think about. Nutrition


free, two litres of Coca-Cola is bags of sugar. But the idea that


they don't have a can of Coke but then can have Mars bars and other


things, which will be totally unaffected. But if you speak to


doctors and things, just stopping the fizzy drink stuff would really


help. I am also a trustee for a diabetes charity, and that is a


terrible thing, with huge increases in type 1 and type two. We have to


do something about it. If they fail Jamie Oliver will be on their case.


Other celebrity chefs are available in other newspapers. We will finish


with a Daily Express. Fury over lottery farce. Basically, they


change the rules on the lottery. It used to be that you had a one in 8


million chance of living. Now you have one in 14 million chance of


winning. So, there are lots of rollovers. All these people are


complaining that last week some people got five walls and they only


one ?883. I thought those were always the odds. They have made it


more difficult, you have to do more balls. That is why there are more


people complaining, that... I don't often play the lottery, and I always


assume someone has won a massive pot of cash. 73 people last week one


?883 each. It is a scam, because they roll over and everyone runs


down and buys it. The reason it is rolling over is because Nvidia is


winning. Everyone knows that bigger jackpots and more millionaires mean


more sales. More money for Camelot. I'm not sure people play the lottery


to give money to charity. There is no such thing as altruism! That is


it, thank you so much. Next, Sportsday.
