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

:00:00.:00:00.

Super League scores. Hello and welcome to

:00:00.:00:24.

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

:00:25.:00:27.

political correspondent Ben Riley-Smith, and Eleanor Mills,

:00:28.:00:30.

editorial director of the The Independent leads with news

:00:31.:00:32.

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

:00:33.:00:47.

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

:00:48.:00:51.

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

:00:52.:00:54.

wanted suspects - it says they cited data protection

:00:55.:00:58.

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

:00:59.:01:00.

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

:01:01.:01:03.

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

:01:04.:01:07.

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

:01:08.:01:10.

back to try restore investor confidence

:01:11.:01:13.

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

:01:14.:01:14.

considering putting all convicted Islamist terrorist prisoners in

:01:15.:01:17.

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

:01:18.:01:19.

the court case involving footballer Adam Johnson, accused of sexual

:01:20.:01:24.

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

:01:25.:01:36.

Sharp transplant for Islamist terrorists. Guardian, you will get

:01:37.:01:42.

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

:01:43.:01:50.

are seriously considering putting all Islamist terrorists in a single

:01:51.:02:03.

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

:02:04.:02:10.

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

:02:11.:02:16.

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

:02:17.:02:20.

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

:02:21.:02:28.

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

:02:29.:02:34.

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

:02:35.:02:41.

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

:02:42.:02:45.

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

:02:46.:02:51.

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

:02:52.:02:55.

don't want all the terrorist prisoners all radicalising other

:02:56.:02:59.

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

:03:00.:03:03.

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

:03:04.:03:08.

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

:03:09.:03:13.

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

:03:14.:03:16.

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

:03:17.:03:21.

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

:03:22.:03:26.

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

:03:27.:03:31.

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

:03:32.:03:36.

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

:03:37.:03:40.

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

:03:41.:03:45.

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

:03:46.:03:51.

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

:03:52.:03:57.

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

:03:58.:04:00.

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

:04:01.:04:06.

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

:04:07.:04:16.

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

:04:17.:04:22.

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

:04:23.:04:25.

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

:04:26.:04:33.

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

:04:34.:04:37.

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

:04:38.:04:42.

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

:04:43.:04:47.

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

:04:48.:04:50.

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

:04:51.:04:55.

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

:04:56.:04:59.

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

:05:00.:05:03.

has happened in the past, with police forces not sharing

:05:04.:05:05.

information with each other which has caused the problem trying to

:05:06.:05:09.

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

:05:10.:05:13.

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

:05:14.:05:18.

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

:05:19.:05:26.

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

:05:27.:05:30.

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

:05:31.:05:33.

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

:05:34.:05:40.

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

:05:41.:05:48.

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

:05:49.:05:53.

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

:05:54.:06:05.

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

:06:06.:06:14.

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

:06:15.:06:26.

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

:06:27.:06:32.

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

:06:33.:06:38.

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

:06:39.:06:44.

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

:06:45.:06:50.

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

:06:51.:06:54.

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

:06:55.:06:59.

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

:07:00.:07:04.

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

:07:05.:07:08.

People have so many details were different accounts that they have

:07:09.:07:11.

started e-mailing them to themselves. That is incredibly

:07:12.:07:19.

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

:07:20.3:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

that the money could be used for extra sport and education

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

winning. Everyone knows that bigger jackpots and more millionaires mean

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

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

3:59:043:59:03

it, thank you so much. Next, Sportsday.
