Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be
With me are the political commentator, James Millar
and Jo Phillips, who's also a political commentator.
Of course, there is only one story we will be looking at.
a counter-terrorism chief refuses to confirm whether the attackers
were were already known to the police or intelligence services.
The FT focuses on Theresa May's plans to review existing police
and security powers, increase pressure on tech companies
and introduce tougher anti-terror laws.
The Telegraph claims counter-terrorism officers have been
monitoring an alleged extremist cell in Barking since March and secretly
recorded individuals plotting a van and knife attack in London.
Quoting Mrs May's phrase that "Enough is Enough",
the Express vows to support the Prime Minister's plans
for what it calls "tougher action on terrorists".
The Mail also leads with that quote from Mrs May, adding that
all of Britain was echoing her sentiments.
The Mirror leads with the heroes of last night.
It said policeman and members of the public fought off
the attackers with batons, chairs, glasses and their bare hands.
Police fired an "unprecedented" 50 bullets at the attackers to bring
them down within eight minutes, the Metro says.
And the i calls the police and public response "defiant"
It has been an incredibly fraught and a difficult 24 hours for a lot
of people but the response from the public and police has been hailed by
so many people. The Guardian leads with the numbers- seven dead. And
Mrs May saying, "Enough is enough" "Enough is enough". Despite what has
been happening in the last few months, it is a very unusual sight
for us to see armed officers on our streets. Coming here tonight, there
were police officers all over the place. I came over Westminster
Bridge. Police vans. London Bridge still cordoned off. And to see
police officers dressed like this is an alarming as well as reassuring
but the question is, you cannot have that all the time. You can do it for
a little while. After Manchester, it ramped up, and after Westminster and
obviously people can put measures in place for security around buildings
but we do not have enough people to do this at this level and we would
not want to at all. The Guardian talks about how the investigation is
focusing on whether these three men shot dead, what kind of support they
may have had? That is the thing that is becoming unfortunately familiar,
investigators rushing to find out if they were part of a network,
mounting multiple raids and arresting lots of people. That is
the initial reaction and over the next few days we will find out
whether there is network. There has not been in the last few incident
and we do not know what has happened with the arrests from the last
incident. Women taken from a block of flats, a man Tasered. Three women
led away from the same flat, noting there are women involved because
invariably people involved in these things are men. "Enough is enough"
declares it made. What can that mean? There have been moves in the
past to strengthen laws and surveyed its opportunities but there is
always some bush back against that. The FT says that this is a rhetoric.
Beyond that, what will it mean, we will have to find out that as well.
Mrs May says she was a deciding about the Internet. She persuaded
the G7 leaders to dedicate a new tool to clean up the web which
sounds good but I do not know what that means also longer jail
sentences for terrorist attacks but there is no worse place to put these
people. It is very difficult for any politician to tread the line. If you
say "Enough is enough" and we have to be less tolerant because we have
been too tolerant, where does that take you? It is difficult for
Theresa May, Jeremy Corbyn, for anybody as to how to make people
feel safe and the question raised about people who claim to have
reported incidents and suspicions. By the nature of reporting, they
will not get a knock on the door the next day saying thank you very much.
This is about surveillance. It is control orders. Where that they
should come back to replace what we have now. What do you do and at what
point do the security services strike to prevent these? They have a
ready prevented several planned attacks before this. You do wonder
if in the light of Manchester, police were jetting out a lot of
people they had been checking out before and whether they were on that
and possibly push them into doing something we will have to wait and
see. The Daily Mail, the picture is not easy to make out there are men
on the ground, wearing their fake suicide vests which, of course, if
you are confronting these people you do not know whether they are of real
or not. Of course, and you are in a crowded area were people are already
injured and dying and they did what they did and they did it very
quickly. James and I were talking about the rightness, if you like, of
publishing photographs like this. I am concerned about this. What
concerns it you? Am concerned because you begin to make this
people into something they are not, they get notoriety. The comparison
with high school shootings in America. Eventually the press
realise, if you put these people in the front page someone at home will
look and see that someone got the front page because they did
something terrible and they think I will do something terrible. Just
reported straight and the incidence fell off a bit. I concerned that
somebody else will see this, they will see someone achieving
something. I would rather see it pictures of the victims, the concert
in Manchester. The Metro has the same picture, even close-up, saying
police fired 50 bullets which is unprecedented. As you said just now,
if you see free people and you believe they are wearing suicide
vests, and you have a split second, you have to make sure... I do think
there are questions about how papers, in particular, cover this.
The rolling news channel is different but even then we have to
pause and think. This picture gave me pause. I did not feel comfortable
with this picture with it being used. The Metro, a free paper, on
trains and buses were schoolchildren are travelling. Of course, he cannot
keep children away from the horrors but you need to see that have the
lawyer we stick... Part of it is because of citizen journalism. We
were trying to work out whether this is an agency professional
photographer but, of course, there are agencies who will market members
of the public photographs. We are not saying these are the baddies
here and it is OK to have a discussion about why it has
happened. We do similar things with suicide to try and avoid copycat
behaviour. I think something like this is something the newspapers
that need to think about. There will be copycat attacks after this.
Immense guidelines about the nature of pictures that we run, how much
detail and how close you get. On the Daily Star they have gone with the
kind of thing viewable comfortable with. He rose and journalists and
taxidrivers featured. -- heroes, and the incredible emergency services
who responded so quickly and how the public turned against these men
despite a risk to themselves. Just as you cannot understand the people
who do this, but the people who run towards the. The British transport
policeman who got stabbed in the face taking them with passion.
Dippel throwing chairs and pint glasses, anything. And you have the
paramedics and ambulance crews who have nothing to protect themselves
with and yet they parlayed and do their job and it is utterly
remarkable. -- they pile in. And the Journal is becoming a celebrity...
Absolutely. This is the photograph of the reality. The speed with which
everybody is so quick to complain about delays in traffic or whether
you are waiting in a queue, my son is a paramedic in London so I
slightly by S. But you see this, it is really quick and fast and you
have these people in the restaurants, waiters and waitresses,
suddenly this horrific event on Saturday night and people come
together instinctively, which I think is quite encouraging.
Incredibly moving as well. In the Daily Telegraph, the picture of the
armed officers out on the street. Apparently, there has been a secret
recording of some cell in Barking, where the raids had taken place
today, where an attack like this seemed to have been devised. But we
do not know. Exactly, it goes back to this question of surveillance and
intelligence. We do not know what has been going on, how long it has
been operational. I think they have said since March, earlier this year
but, apparently, there is a group of people talking about this, using
YouTube... I sure not YouTube but YouTube videos and it goes back to
the question of what is available on the net and how do you control it.
Internet companies like Facebook and Google, are they taking it
seriously... How can YouTube make a decision on
every single video that gets uploaded? Millions are uploaded
every single day. I am not making excuses for them at all, it is the
sheer scale of it. You cannot legislate it because they will be
some other way to find it. Exactly. The Internet is such an incredible
concept. You cannot stop it. It is there now. You cannot roll it back.
The Daily Express quoting the reason may. Enough is enough. -- Theresa
May. They say they have repeatedly called for tougher action on
terrorism. What does that mean? Until someone has committed a crime,
what do you do? That is the biggest worry about this kind of stuff. It
is fine saying enough is enough, but what can you do? There are people in
a bunker in Whitehall that know what to do. But I am not sure what you
can do against a van and a knife. It is not like putting together the
components for a bomb. Exactly. It is not like the thing we're used to,
tight security like airports, airlines and airports can bring in a
ban on laptops, liquids, whatever. These are people on a street going
around restaurants and things on a Saturday night. Drawing attention to
this. Three men walking casually through Borough Market before they
were shot dead. It may have been even before they carried it out. It
may have been after they got out of the van and move across off of the
bridge. It talks about what needs to happen in this tougher action. The
Prevent strategy has been criticised for a long time. They need tothe
radicalisation of people. One of the complaints was many people, many
Muslims, felt there entire communities were being stigmatised
by it. This is the problem. Again, it goes back to saying if you phone
up and say I think this person is a bit dodgy, why, because he has a
beard, he is wearing a grey suit. You think they are dodgy because
little girls wear headscarves? It is delicate, this line we are treading.
You cannot attack a whole community. Now, we have heard, and I am sure,
again, today and tomorrow, we will hear condemnation from the wider
Muslim community, as they have been since Westminster. These people
doing these things actually don't belong in communities because they
are... Communities, they are in communities of her own monstrous
imagination. They are horrible, horrible people who watch
monstrosities, whether it is Islamic State videos, or whatever... There
were some Muslims on social media saying a true Muslim would be busy
eating late at night during Ramadan because they have been fasting all
day. That is what a true Muslim would be doing. The final paper, the
i, defiant. Armed officers coming down escalators. It talks about the
number of people killed and injured. Defiant is a good word. In America,
they said London was reeling from it. I hate to refer to social media,
but there have been many people getting uptight about the use of the
word "reeling." It is not wrong to say we are reeling from Manchester
because it was horrible. It is fine when something is that horrible.
Isn't it about wanting to say that for ourselves? Yeah. Yeah. We can
say that. It is about owning the word, isn't it? But you wouldn't ask
any of those to keep to one side. They are being defiant. I like to
think that is the British way. Stand to the right. Stand to be left. They
also have a small photograph for Manchester as well. May be later
additions will have something. We will see you again for the unusually
late repeat at half past midnight. I hope you will join us... Well, I
hope you will stay. I hope you will join us as well.
The Prime Minister has said last night's attack isn't directly linked
