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

:00:17.:00:20.

With me are Alison Little the Deputy political editor

:00:21.:00:23.

of the Daily Express and the political

:00:24.:00:25.

Let me bring you up-to-date with a look through the front pages.

:00:26.:00:43.

Like many of tomorrow's papers, the Telegraph leads

:00:44.:00:45.

on the London Mosque attack - they feature a picture

:00:46.:00:47.

of the suspected attacker, who is alleged to have shouted 'kill

:00:48.:00:50.

all muslims' and 'this is for London Bridge'.

:00:51.:00:55.

The Times leads with reports on the man held after the attack.

:00:56.:01:09.

The Express lead with defiant comments from Prime Minister

:01:10.:01:11.

following the attack, who says that hate

:01:12.:01:13.

The I call the terror incident 'an attack on all of us'.

:01:14.:01:27.

If we start with that, Alison. It's a very striking image. Partly

:01:28.:01:34.

because it's a night-time image, it's beautifully lit but also its

:01:35.:01:38.

reflective image. Under that headline, an attack on all of us.

:01:39.:01:44.

Very powerful. It is, and that's the message lots of politicians have

:01:45.:01:47.

been trying to get out there. They know how divisive it might be, so

:01:48.:01:50.

they are trying to say, and trying to convey the message that they

:01:51.:01:57.

understand that this is an attack on British people and British human

:01:58.:02:01.

beings. There is never a shortage of pictures and images, we see so many

:02:02.:02:05.

through social media and television, all the stuff people were filming

:02:06.:02:08.

last night on their own phones at the scene. It must be quite hard

:02:09.:02:11.

sometimes for the newspapers to find the still but is fresh, but also

:02:12.:02:17.

encapsulates a story. Yes, and one that does not distort the story as

:02:18.:02:20.

well. I think what's very important about the coverage across the board

:02:21.:02:24.

and all papers that we will see tomorrow morning is they, as far as

:02:25.:02:29.

I have seen so far, are trying very hard to make it clear that this was

:02:30.:02:34.

simply a terrorist attack. Just as Westminster was, just as Tower

:02:35.:02:38.

Bridge was, just as Manchester was a terrorist attack. The terrorists can

:02:39.:02:43.

come from any community. And they can attack any community. The

:02:44.:02:47.

headline says, each and every one of them is an attack on all of us. The

:02:48.:02:53.

Metro has an image of Darren Osborne, the man who is claimed to

:02:54.:02:56.

have caused the attack. Perhaps most striking is this picture to the

:02:57.:03:02.

right, in fact I think I've jumped one, I think we have the... Lets do

:03:03.:03:06.

The Express first. Theresa May and Downing Street. Yes, the evil will

:03:07.:03:12.

never succeed, which we saw on the front page there. Of course she has

:03:13.:03:18.

to say that. Of course, it's in a sense, the kind of reflexive

:03:19.:03:23.

response after any incident of this type. The question, whether these

:03:24.:03:27.

incidents in themselves change anything, or change our perceptions

:03:28.:03:32.

of the community we live in, the society we live in, and our sense of

:03:33.:03:36.

whether or not we are safe. I think a lot of people are asking whether

:03:37.:03:40.

or not we are safe. And the truth of the matter is, we all have a

:03:41.:03:45.

responsibility I think to make sure we are as safe as we possibly can

:03:46.:03:48.

be. There are two ways to do that. One is to make sure the police and

:03:49.:03:53.

the security services have all the resources that they need, and that's

:03:54.:03:55.

the responsibility of government, to ensure that is the case. But we all,

:03:56.:04:00.

I think, have a responsibility as well, because there are clearly

:04:01.:04:03.

people living amongst us who have hatred and anger in their hearts.

:04:04.:04:08.

And you can go on to do horrible, horrible things, as we have seen. We

:04:09.:04:12.

have a responsibility to keep an eye out for that. And to make it clear

:04:13.:04:20.

that any level of racial hatred, or a sense that somehow there is a

:04:21.:04:22.

group out there, and other, that we do not approve of, that it is

:04:23.:04:27.

legitimate to criticise and attack, that has to be stamped out at root

:04:28.:04:31.

cause. If it gets out of hand, this is what it do. In terms of what we

:04:32.:04:36.

saw particularly late last night, when we saw this intervention that

:04:37.:04:41.

features on the front of the Metro, which was the photo I was going to

:04:42.:04:47.

show you next. The photo of the imam, Muhammad by mood, who later

:04:48.:04:51.

did a news conference today explaining what had happened, he

:04:52.:04:55.

says and we see the pictures here, him intervening. Effectively putting

:04:56.:04:58.

a hand on the shoulder of the man who had just driven into some of his

:04:59.:05:08.

fellow Muslims, some friends, kind of protecting him, for fear they

:05:09.:05:11.

might be violence against him. But the anger could turn... An

:05:12.:05:17.

extraordinary symbol, isn't it? He has been widely hailed as a hero and

:05:18.:05:21.

I think we'd all agree with that. The mobile phone footage people

:05:22.:05:24.

have, the panic and screaming, anger, pain. There was a big blob of

:05:25.:05:30.

people, rightly angry with him, and he just rushed out and said, no,

:05:31.:05:35.

don't touch. Hand him to the police. And it was fantastic. What a great

:05:36.:05:39.

leader. The contrast with the negative image of some people who

:05:40.:05:45.

claim that they are inspired by Islam, with the contrast with those

:05:46.:05:48.

who kept saying, this is a religion of peace, supposed to be about...

:05:49.:05:55.

He's devastating that. Also that the Muslim community are absolutely

:05:56.:06:04.

behind the police. And that, this imam was making it absolutely clear

:06:05.:06:06.

that it should be the police who deal with it, it should not be mob

:06:07.:06:10.

rule on the streets even though it seems that the attacker was almost

:06:11.:06:15.

willingly the crowd to take out vengeance on him. The imam was

:06:16.:06:19.

saying no, absolutely not, it has to be the police to deal with this.

:06:20.:06:22.

That's how we do things in this country. The question that has been

:06:23.:06:26.

raised by some people talking today about this, and this has been raised

:06:27.:06:29.

and some commentary again tomorrow, is not just the immediate question

:06:30.:06:34.

of this incident, but whether there has been a rolling together of lots

:06:35.:06:41.

of different forms of hatred, and fear, and distrust between different

:06:42.:06:44.

communities. And whether there is a danger of confusing all of this, and

:06:45.:06:48.

treating everything has the same, so people talked about trying to do

:06:49.:06:53.

with Islamophobia to prevent -- through the prevent programme, for

:06:54.:06:56.

example, a programme which is meant to be about ensuring people were not

:06:57.:07:01.

influenced by extreme thought, and actually radicalise. Any thoughts on

:07:02.:07:05.

that? Whether there is a clear enough official view, if you like,

:07:06.:07:11.

of how we deal with the different elements of this? We do have to deal

:07:12.:07:14.

with the different elements, because they are in themselves different.

:07:15.:07:17.

But they have the same root cause, which is the sense of hatred. That

:07:18.:07:22.

is what we all can recognise in each and every one of them. So you do

:07:23.:07:28.

have to have specific ways of dealing with radicalisation within

:07:29.:07:32.

the Muslim communities, but at the same time you have to have slightly

:07:33.:07:37.

different ways of looking for right wing, far right extremism wherever

:07:38.:07:41.

it is they might be living. You don't use exactly the same

:07:42.:07:45.

techniques to approach them, but, they are so similar. And the idea

:07:46.:07:51.

that they are completely different phenomenon on... Demonising and

:07:52.:07:54.

attacking a group, yeah. This was the fear many had that there would

:07:55.:07:58.

be some backlash, retaliation, something of that kind. Let's talk

:07:59.:08:02.

about the Telegraph. A different subject, inevitably that is their

:08:03.:08:05.

main story, but this was supposed to be the day when all the papers were

:08:06.:08:09.

expected to be leading on Tuesday morning with a Brexit talks. It's

:08:10.:08:13.

still there on the front page, just. A lot of papers lead on Brexit

:08:14.:08:18.

because the attack happened so late. Could not make it into today's

:08:19.:08:22.

papers. Davis slammed the door on any hope of a soft Brexit. Is it as

:08:23.:08:28.

simple as that? Looking at this, it is and it isn't. The Telegraph have

:08:29.:08:34.

chosen to go in by saying, both David Davis and the EU are making

:08:35.:08:39.

clear we are leaving the single market and the customs union. A lot

:08:40.:08:43.

of pro-Brexit can say, of course we are. Even Philip Hammond, the chief

:08:44.:08:51.

Remainer in the Cabinet, said yesterday, when it comes to be about

:08:52.:08:57.

is how much access you have. So this new relationship could do that? To

:08:58.:09:03.

me this is not rocket science. I'm slightly surprised, one of my

:09:04.:09:06.

colleagues was in Brussels today so I will hear from him tomorrow, but

:09:07.:09:10.

that it might take chilly end of October they say, to sort out the

:09:11.:09:14.

issue of citizens rights. EU citizens. That was supposed to be

:09:15.:09:20.

some way the easiest thing. But we are also expecting there is a

:09:21.:09:24.

suggestion that Theresa May, when she does the Brussels summit with

:09:25.:09:28.

other EU leaders on Thursday, or Friday, that she will go with this

:09:29.:09:32.

kind of big generous offer on migrants rights to try and win them

:09:33.:09:39.

over. Maybe cajole slightly earlier. If we prop forward to the Guardian,

:09:40.:09:46.

EU yields inverse negotiations... Clearly there were concessions, on

:09:47.:09:54.

trade and all that. One of the reasons both David Davis and the EU,

:09:55.:09:58.

on the EU side, they are trying to say we are clear it's going to be

:09:59.:10:02.

hard exit. They have to start somewhere. If there is still the

:10:03.:10:06.

possibility of the House of Commons turning around, when there clearly

:10:07.:10:10.

is not a majority for hard Brexit, then it just makes the negotiating

:10:11.:10:14.

his nurse almost impossible to do. The basic fear of having one hand

:10:15.:10:19.

tied behind your back. Going back to the Telegraph, it's clear there are

:10:20.:10:23.

people and parties in the House of Commons who are determined to do

:10:24.:10:26.

their best to ensure that it is not a hard Brexit, or if it is hard,

:10:27.:10:31.

it's hard with a soft centre. Maybe we need Mohammed, the imam, to come

:10:32.:10:37.

in halfway through the talks and try and get them to calm down. Let's end

:10:38.:10:43.

with The Times. A couple of interesting stories, this want of

:10:44.:10:47.

Russia threatening the RAF in US air force jets after an American jet

:10:48.:10:51.

apparently attacked a Syrian plane. That's right. All getting very

:10:52.:10:57.

located isn't it rushed up I won't pretend to be an expert but it was a

:10:58.:11:01.

Syrian jet brought down by an American jet. The first time in

:11:02.:11:09.

Americans have bought down a foreign jet since Kosovo. To write it off as

:11:10.:11:13.

the RAF being under threat as a big extreme. There was a suggestion that

:11:14.:11:18.

the Russians will be tracking planes. It goes back to this problem

:11:19.:11:22.

that Russia is there with the Syrian air force, cooperating with the

:11:23.:11:26.

Syrian government. We and the Americans have certain preferred

:11:27.:11:29.

partners who are in the opposition, but there are other groups that

:11:30.:11:33.

neither the Russians or the Americans are very keen on. The

:11:34.:11:37.

Americans on the British are a lot more robust on Syria than they were

:11:38.:11:40.

in the past. I don't think the Russians have any right to complain

:11:41.:11:43.

about that given the way they have been behaving in the past five

:11:44.:11:46.

years. It also reminds us of this hideous situation in Syria, that is

:11:47.:11:54.

continuing. We have been so... It's not getting any better. Let's end.

:11:55.:11:58.

How else can we possibly end? Nobody is quite yet saying on the front

:11:59.:12:02.

page, what a scorcher, but Britain bakes in the longest heatwave for 20

:12:03.:12:08.

years, says The Times. Yes, Lance you were saying to me earlier,

:12:09.:12:13.

goading me as a representative of a Brexit supporting paper, were we

:12:14.:12:17.

going to have to go back to Fahrenheit after Brexit? LAUGHTER I

:12:18.:12:22.

think I smiled. Your paper has stuck with Brown hype through thick and

:12:23.:12:27.

thin! We will all have to go back to Fahrenheit. Could that be in the

:12:28.:12:31.

Great Repeal Bill? We will find out... If we do go back to

:12:32.:12:36.

Fahrenheit, it doesn't make it any cooler! It doesn't solve anything.

:12:37.:12:40.

On that note, thank you very much. That's it from the papers.

:12:41.:12:44.

Don't forget you can see the front pages of the papers online

:12:45.:12:47.

It's all there for you - seven days a week at bbc dot co uk

:12:48.:12:52.

forward slash papers - and if you miss the programme any

:12:53.:12:55.

evening you can watch it later on BBC iPlayer.

:12:56.:12:57.

My thanks to Alison and Lance. What else next but the weather. I'll be

:12:58.:13:00.

back at the top of the hour.

:13:01.:13:07.

No need to wait until tomorrow morning to see what's in the papers - tune in for a lively and informed conversation about the next day's headlines.
