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

:00:16.:00:19.

With me are the political commentator, James Millar

:00:20.:00:25.

a counter-terrorism chief refuses to confirm whether the attackers

:00:26.:00:32.

were were already known to the police or intelligence services.

:00:33.:00:35.

The FT focuses on Theresa May's plans to review existing police

:00:36.:00:38.

and security powers, increase pressure on tech companies

:00:39.:00:40.

and introduce tougher anti-terror laws.

:00:41.:00:42.

The Telegraph claims counter-terrorism officers have been

:00:43.:00:45.

monitoring an alleged extremist cell in Barking since March and secretly

:00:46.:00:49.

recorded individuals plotting a van and knife attack in London.

:00:50.:00:54.

Quoting Mrs May's phrase that "Enough is Enough",

:00:55.:00:58.

the Express vows to support the Prime Minister's plans

:00:59.:01:01.

for what it calls "tougher action on terrorists".

:01:02.:01:03.

The Mail also leads with that quote from Mrs May, adding that

:01:04.:01:06.

all of Britain was echoing her sentiments.

:01:07.:01:09.

The Mirror leads with the heroes of last night.

:01:10.:01:12.

It said policeman and members of the public fought off

:01:13.:01:16.

the attackers with batons, chairs, glasses and their bare hands.

:01:17.:01:19.

Police fired an "unprecedented" 50 bullets at the attackers to bring

:01:20.:01:22.

them down within eight minutes, the Metro says.

:01:23.:01:24.

And the i calls the police and public response "defiant"

:01:25.:01:34.

The quote, "Enough is enough", on the front page is quite few

:01:35.:01:46.

newspapers, including the FT and she vows of war on extremism but there

:01:47.:01:51.

is no clarity on what that really means? The Financial Times says Mrs

:01:52.:01:58.

May's responds marked a sharp escalation in rhetoric and actually

:01:59.:02:06.

that is all anybody can do. We all agree enough is enough and something

:02:07.:02:11.

has to be done but the question for Mrs May or for any politician is

:02:12.:02:19.

what can you do? There are questions about what police knew, what

:02:20.:02:22.

security services new but what can you do? We know young men sent to

:02:23.:02:31.

prison are quite often coming out radicalised when they did not go in

:02:32.:02:36.

radicalised so increasing jail terms does not seem like quite a good

:02:37.:02:42.

idea... Before anybody climbs all over that,, that does not mean that

:02:43.:02:48.

they should not be sent to prison. No, of course not, but there are

:02:49.:02:52.

things like whether we go back to control orders, which we had now we

:02:53.:03:07.

have the prevention of. ... The exclusion orders on people who have

:03:08.:03:12.

been abroad and come back. What the public will probably find unsettling

:03:13.:03:19.

is that in this attack and the attack in Manchester two weeks ago,

:03:20.:03:24.

people claimed to have reported their neighbours all the

:03:25.:03:34.

perpetrators. We do not know. -- or. I think there has to be a bit of a

:03:35.:03:42.

PR exercise to save we are following these but look at the scale. The

:03:43.:03:50.

police, the authorities, contrary to what American media believe happens

:03:51.:03:54.

in our country, we do go along with what they ask but do not report

:03:55.:03:58.

everything because it could compromise the investigation. We saw

:03:59.:04:04.

the aftermath of the Manchester attack, the Americans willing to

:04:05.:04:08.

share everything was only when they should not have done. The FT story,

:04:09.:04:21.

Donald Trump talking of rhetoric... Said he criticised the Mayor of

:04:22.:04:29.

London for sane people not to be worried. It took that out of context

:04:30.:04:36.

saying that Sadiq Khan said people should not be alarmed. I'd should

:04:37.:04:51.

could drop shot for calling the US President what you did. You know I

:04:52.:04:56.

have a job to do. The Guardian, again the quote from Theresa May,

:04:57.:05:05.

"Enough is enough". A few things to discuss, notably the photograph

:05:06.:05:10.

appearing on a few front pages. But arresting, no pun intended, not the

:05:11.:05:18.

kind of thing that we are used to seeing but the other story on the

:05:19.:05:24.

front page, Labour attacks PM for presiding over cuts to police. We

:05:25.:05:29.

are now on to Monday so the election campaign is officially back on. A

:05:30.:05:36.

slightly odd one. The Guardian says critics have accused the Prime

:05:37.:05:39.

Minister of politicising the atrocity and the next paragraph

:05:40.:05:49.

Jeremy Corbyn saying may implemented 20,000 police cards. There are

:05:50.:05:52.

questions to be answered about police cuts but two were those cuts

:05:53.:05:58.

have fallen and how much they would have impacted on this because anti-

:05:59.:06:06.

terror police are quite well off. Of course if you do not have bobbies on

:06:07.:06:14.

the beat to spot the first signs then... We have not had bobbies on

:06:15.:06:23.

the beat for quite a long time. You can always have more resources but

:06:24.:06:27.

resources going into this sort of terrorism has to be much more

:06:28.:06:31.

Internet based. It is not necessarily about walking the

:06:32.:06:37.

street. I am sure it is a mixture of both. But it is about listening and

:06:38.:06:41.

infiltrating an interesting that Jeremy Corbyn to the campaign last

:06:42.:06:48.

night, Sunday night. Nobody should be making political capital out of

:06:49.:06:53.

these but we are three days away from an election. It raises this

:06:54.:06:58.

question of suspending the campaign. After Manchester it was suspended

:06:59.:07:06.

for four days. This time 24 hours. Ukip did not observe that

:07:07.:07:11.

suspension. Was it the right decision? It is hard to say. But

:07:12.:07:21.

there is an election this week so you cannot suspend campaign. In the

:07:22.:07:25.

Telegraph, YouTube link to the terror attack. Officers recorded a

:07:26.:07:39.

cell talking about how to use a fan to attack London. Basically similar

:07:40.:07:47.

to the same thing that happened on Saturday. Is it the same plot? A

:07:48.:07:52.

year not entirely sure. It is not cover where you chip 15 but it fits

:07:53.:07:57.

into the idea that the Prime Minister has put out that the

:07:58.:08:01.

Internet has to be policed and clamped down. Sites like YouTube

:08:02.:08:08.

need to be more if. You get into the argument of what is free speech,

:08:09.:08:17.

what is hate speech? Absolutely. She raised it at the G7 and there are

:08:18.:08:22.

people within the industry beginning to address it but it is impossible

:08:23.:08:29.

to police. It is a monster that is created because it just keeps

:08:30.:08:36.

growing and whatever you do to police, there is a dark Web where

:08:37.:08:43.

people can find things. People will talk about free speech and

:08:44.:08:47.

censorship. What you have to do is somehow or rather get to these

:08:48.:08:52.

people who are not representative of Islam or any religion or political

:08:53.:08:58.

cause, they are people who are incredibly disturbed and intent on

:08:59.:09:04.

evil. Yet to be careful of focusing on the Internet too much. I do

:09:05.:09:11.

journalists so I am cynical about what goes on on the Internet. The

:09:12.:09:19.

has to be some sort of human interaction as well. Yes,

:09:20.:09:25.

persuading... It is easy to bleed into the Internet when there are

:09:26.:09:32.

other parts of the puzzle. This is the picture of the two attackers

:09:33.:09:39.

when... Assuming at this point that have been shot by police who arrived

:09:40.:09:46.

so incredibly quickly, and we then eight minute they were dead. For the

:09:47.:09:54.

people involved those eight minutes must have felt like hours and hours

:09:55.:09:56.

but it is incredible because we know but it is incredible because we know

:09:57.:10:00.

there are more armed police on the street and visible but they are also

:10:01.:10:03.

working on the periphery but to come and to deal with it like that and,

:10:04.:10:08.

as we know now, these were fake suicide bombs before the officers

:10:09.:10:12.

involved they must have thought they were really charged. The venture has

:10:13.:10:19.

a close-up version of that same photograph. Police fire 50 bullets

:10:20.:10:23.

which is set to be unprecedented to cut short the terror rampage. You'll

:10:24.:10:29.

be skidding about the use of a photograph like that? It is The

:10:30.:10:34.

Metro, a free paper all over buses and trains in London and lots of

:10:35.:10:40.

people, including children, will see it. It also gives the attention

:10:41.:10:47.

profile, often with the sort of attacks they are carried out to

:10:48.:10:53.

achieve a profile. The comparison is high school shootings in America

:10:54.:10:57.

where there was a spate of them because every time what happened,

:10:58.:11:02.

the person who did it, invariably male, was put on the front pageant

:11:03.:11:08.

sometime he became an outlaw, an era to people simile disturbed and they

:11:09.:11:14.

saw they could get their own five minutes. The media looked at how

:11:15.:11:24.

that my have been responsible for some of those attacks and pull back

:11:25.:11:30.

on the coverage. Last night, there were people on social media saying

:11:31.:11:35.

why are you giving these people are the oxygen of publicity but we have

:11:36.:11:40.

to report the story. Nothing will go on the BBC radio or television

:11:41.:11:46.

without being weighed up and conceded. Hopefully. Broadcasting is

:11:47.:11:53.

much more regulated than newspapers. The problem I think comes back to

:11:54.:11:59.

the free-speech and the Internet, is that people who are taking these

:12:00.:12:04.

photographs - we do not know if they are from professional journalists

:12:05.:12:12.

all of the public - but editors sometimes not as strict as they used

:12:13.:12:17.

to be in saying, actually, we're not going to publish that just because

:12:18.:12:23.

it is all over social media does not make it acceptable for our readers.

:12:24.:12:28.

I completely agree with James. It is a free paper. In the corner, a

:12:29.:12:35.

picture of Ariana Grande, a joyful reaction to this, why not put a

:12:36.:12:47.

picture of her on the front. an bully can she seemed. I heard her

:12:48.:12:54.

singing somewhere over the rainbow, which was amazing. I am familiar

:12:55.:13:06.

because I have a young daughter. The Daily Star, no trouble with this

:13:07.:13:09.

front page. This is a photograph that is a very

:13:10.:13:18.

good photojournalistic front-page. It has real people, it has the

:13:19.:13:29.

journalist, Jeff Ho and Gerard, who have become celebrities really,

:13:30.:13:34.

three girls at the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester and then the

:13:35.:13:39.

emergency services that do all this stuff all the time and keep doing

:13:40.:13:44.

all a brilliant job. There's all sorts of words that get bandied

:13:45.:13:52.

around, nobody ever uses the word cowed except after a terrorist

:13:53.:13:57.

attack, heroes could also be applied, these people, the

:13:58.:14:00.

ambulance, the police, they are genuine heroes, they ran to war

:14:01.:14:04.

space... While telling everyone else to runaway. -- towards this. There

:14:05.:14:11.

are stories who were caught up in this, the eight minutes must have

:14:12.:14:18.

felt like Florida, waiters, waitresses, bar staff, customers,

:14:19.:14:21.

people instinctively to do the right thing -- felt like for ever.

:14:22.:14:33.

Amazing. The Daily Express, exclusive picture of the attackers

:14:34.:14:39.

walking through Borough Market. Presuming this is after they abandon

:14:40.:14:44.

the van. Then they are in Borough Market. They are walking calmly.

:14:45.:14:49.

They aren't running. They looked like three blokes walking along the

:14:50.:14:53.

road and from the earlier eyewitness reports, after having jumped out of

:14:54.:15:00.

the van... It is the Express who will support the Prime Minister on

:15:01.:15:03.

her tougher action on terrorists, whatever that might mean. Will

:15:04.:15:08.

strangely one of the interesting words here is the van mounted the

:15:09.:15:11.

pavement, that is the kind of thing that will be thought about at the

:15:12.:15:16.

very bottom level of this, raising pavements, how do you change the

:15:17.:15:20.

street verges so you can't get a van onto the pavement to run people over

:15:21.:15:25.

and hopefully the action will spread up to Prevent and what happens in

:15:26.:15:30.

government. We've already seen it in Westminster long before this with

:15:31.:15:35.

the cordons and the much stricter access in Downing Street. I'm sure

:15:36.:15:41.

they're thinking about that already. How do you protect every road? All

:15:42.:15:46.

of the arteries across the river, it is such a difficult job. It's not

:15:47.:15:51.

just London, as we know, from Manchester, or Paris, or Nice.

:15:52.:15:59.

Munich, everywhere! Let's have a look at the i, finally, another

:16:00.:16:02.

pictures pictures of these armed police officers, and a dog, coming

:16:03.:16:08.

down the escalators, so incredibly heavily armed. Like something out of

:16:09.:16:12.

a movie, it really is, will we aren't used to seeing that in this

:16:13.:16:17.

country thankfully. Defiant is the word, it has been used quite a lot

:16:18.:16:22.

this weekend. It has. On the front page also pictures of the young

:16:23.:16:27.

girls at the concert in Manchester, they are equally defiant as the guys

:16:28.:16:31.

in the main picture because they made a choice, they were caught up

:16:32.:16:34.

in something horrific and they made a choice to go out and go to a

:16:35.:16:40.

concert and they won't be cowed. A concert that would normally take

:16:41.:16:44.

months to prepare. It is extraordinary. All of those stars

:16:45.:16:49.

who cleared their diaries and made sure they were there. It is great.

:16:50.:16:53.

These are predominantly younger else, young people who will have

:16:54.:16:59.

been incredibly upset and affected by everything that happened

:17:00.:17:03.

understandably and I think that this... For them it will be part of

:17:04.:17:10.

the healing process to use that term, but that is more important

:17:11.:17:14.

than defiance. It is going back to... It is the power of pop music,

:17:15.:17:19.

which is nonsense most of the time, but for these girls it means

:17:20.:17:24.

something to them and it helps them. Pop music's Craik. Ariana Grande,

:17:25.:17:30.

23. She is a great moral model! -- pop music's great. That's it for the

:17:31.:17:36.

papers. Don't go anywhere. Don't forget all the front pages are

:17:37.:17:39.

online at the website where you can read a detailed review of the

:17:40.:17:44.

papers, there seven days a week. We are there as well. Each night's

:17:45.:17:49.

edition is posted shortly after we finish and of course it is on

:17:50.:17:54.

iPlayer. Thank you very much, nice to see you.
