before starring in his own series of slapstick movies

:00:00.:00:00.

during the 1950s, has died at his Las Vegas home aged 91.

:00:00.:00:20.

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

:00:21.:00:25.

bringing us first thing tomorrow morning.

:00:26.:00:27.

With me are the former Fleet Street editor,

:00:28.:00:29.

Eve Pollard, and the journalist and columnist, Yasmin Alibhai-Brown.

:00:30.:00:32.

Lovely to see you both again. We will come back to our chat in a

:00:33.:00:41.

moment. First off, a quick look at the front pages.

:00:42.:00:47.

They pay tribute to the British seven-year-old who was killed

:00:48.:00:56.

in the Barcelona terror attack on Thursday,

:00:57.:00:58.

after becoming separated from his mum while on Las Ramblas.

:00:59.:00:59.

The Daily Telegraph headlines comments made by the UK's chief

:01:00.:01:02.

trade negotiator in which he said post-Brexit deals will make

:01:03.:01:05.

the world a safer place as Britain forges alliances with other

:01:06.:01:08.

The Daily Express, meanwhile, claims Britain has seen a ?50

:01:09.:01:15.

billion foreign investment boom since the vote for Brexit,

:01:16.:01:17.

quoting analysis carried out by a Eurosceptic group.

:01:18.:01:20.

The Financial Times says the Trump administration is to push hard

:01:21.:01:23.

for tax reform in a bid to win back Republican voters.

:01:24.:01:31.

Meanwhile, the Daily Mail writes that Prince Charles has seen a drop

:01:32.:01:34.

in his popularity rating in the run-up to the 20th

:01:35.:01:37.

anniversary of Princess Diana's death.

:01:38.:01:38.

The Times says children are being exposed to an increase

:01:39.:01:41.

in gambling adverts as betting websites push for new customers.

:01:42.:01:46.

And the Guardian says the Crown Prosecution Service

:01:47.:01:49.

is to crack down on social media hate crimes, making them as serious

:01:50.:01:53.

as offences carried out face to face.

:01:54.:02:01.

That is one of the stories will be talking about in a moment. However,

:02:02.:02:07.

good evening do you both. We start off with the times. This fascinating

:02:08.:02:15.

link, the latest information on the spend terror attacks. To Brussels,

:02:16.:02:25.

how is this be made? There it is an Times, who is suspected. And good on

:02:26.:02:29.

the Times, this is the first ever that has this on the front page. So

:02:30.:02:37.

an imam suspected of masterminding the us learn attack also travelled

:02:38.:02:41.

often to Belgium, a connections to Paris, and seems to have been a

:02:42.:02:51.

major, kind of, dark figure, a groomer, almost, of young men, into

:02:52.:02:59.

jihadism and terror. But they have made a number of links. What is

:03:00.:03:11.

fascinating is this A3, the Audi, caught in Cambrils, that has also

:03:12.:03:15.

been seen in France, as well. It is interesting, because one of the

:03:16.:03:19.

boys' father says that this imam spent a lot of time with the boys.

:03:20.:03:25.

The youngest attic was 18, that has been involved in this jihadi

:03:26.:03:32.

terrorist attack. It is terrifying to think that someone who is

:03:33.:03:36.

supposed to be a man of religion is influencing and grooming these boys,

:03:37.:03:41.

usually boys are being in trouble, say you can repay your guilt by

:03:42.:03:44.

doing something wonderful, or whatever. But the man who drove his

:03:45.:03:52.

car is still at large. The one who is still at large, Younes

:03:53.:04:00.

Abouyaaqoub, is 22. But the others were really just lads, who

:04:01.:04:05.

apparently in the small place they were growing up in play football and

:04:06.:04:10.

seemed happy enough. And we do have a problem, because there are many

:04:11.:04:20.

imams online and across Europe, who have been flooded, as far as I know,

:04:21.:04:26.

because a lot are alleging this, by Saudi Arabia. They want their brand

:04:27.:04:32.

of Islam to the eight conquering ideology. So they want to take over

:04:33.:04:36.

the world in terms of the minds and hearts of young people. What

:04:37.:04:41.

astonishes me is that across Europe, this country is still a fond ally of

:04:42.:04:48.

ours. And we should be doing something about Saudi Arabia. What

:04:49.:04:53.

is extraordinary is that I think Saudi Arabia is the chair of human

:04:54.:04:57.

rights and the United Nations. It is extraordinary! And their royals and

:04:58.:05:02.

our royals, and all the President of America, Canada... We know why they

:05:03.:05:07.

suck up to them, but if they are serious about dealing with them, it

:05:08.:05:11.

is time. Very quickly, just to finish off this story, what was

:05:12.:05:15.

fascinating about it was that they were not on anybody's radar. The

:05:16.:05:21.

boys that did the attack, putting the imam a cypher, they did the

:05:22.:05:26.

attack, but they will won't be on watch. They led double lives. They

:05:27.:05:30.

went out and socialise and did not show any signs of being radicalised.

:05:31.:05:37.

-- putting the imam aside for a moment. Yes. And of course, we have

:05:38.:05:45.

GCHQ in this country, across Europe there is nothing like that. Spain

:05:46.:05:49.

does have good intelligence, but the mistake that was made when they

:05:50.:05:52.

found that this house that blew up, they thought it was an accident. And

:05:53.:06:02.

I think that was a bad mistake. A gate turning to Mirror and one of

:06:03.:06:07.

the victims of the atrocious attack. One of the victims is featured on

:06:08.:06:12.

many the papers, Julian Cadman, the seven-year-old, separated from his

:06:13.:06:17.

mother. He was obviously hit by this car in some way. Terrible, terrible

:06:18.:06:22.

story, when you think this is the way the little boy and his life. And

:06:23.:06:26.

his mother, of course, still in hospital. It is the soft targets, is

:06:27.:06:30.

the soft targets, isn't it? Be random, soft targets. I was there

:06:31.:06:38.

until Friday. -- the random. We were staying near to where the van

:06:39.:06:42.

stopped. One street away. Everybody who has been to Barcelona, it is the

:06:43.:06:48.

loveliest, easiest, sort of global cafe joint, if you like. That is

:06:49.:06:55.

what they hate. The puritans, they are real puritans. Not unlike the

:06:56.:06:59.

American neo-Nazis. They want the world to be not diverse, not to be

:07:00.:07:08.

internationalist. I was impressed by a piece in yesterday's Times, we

:07:09.:07:14.

said now we need to protect these people. They put bollards up in

:07:15.:07:23.

places like France and on the Thames, and it is good to change the

:07:24.:07:27.

way Europe looks, but this is something we need to do. We are

:07:28.:07:33.

going to turn, now, to the Guardian, which has another picture of the

:07:34.:07:37.

lovely Julian Cadman, but the story we are going to be looking at is the

:07:38.:07:44.

online abuse. Here we have somebody from the Crown Prosecution Service,

:07:45.:07:49.

which says we are going to deal with social media attacks as if they were

:07:50.:07:53.

physical, to your face attacks, because often they end up with being

:07:54.:07:58.

physical attacks, and they are, of course, very, very dangerous, with

:07:59.:08:02.

young people, cyber bullying, all this goes on on social media. And

:08:03.:08:09.

stalking, it can be terrifying! Frankly, it is about time we got to

:08:10.:08:16.

grips with social media. It is totally unfettered. Television and

:08:17.:08:24.

radio had to check their facts, social media does not. -- have to.

:08:25.:08:34.

And because their real name. -- and nobody puts their real name. I

:08:35.:08:40.

remember hearing somebody said that every time is something on social

:08:41.:08:45.

media, they dreamt of the day they would have to put their name and

:08:46.:08:49.

address next to it. Some of the strains of hate-crime, they say,

:08:50.:08:57.

racism, homophobic, sexism... But the mental abuse, I wonder how they

:08:58.:09:06.

will target, if they will, how they will target. We are going to look at

:09:07.:09:13.

the Mail now, and they have a story on the royal family. The angle is

:09:14.:09:18.

that Charles and Camilla are not too happy, allegedly, with the backlash

:09:19.:09:22.

following the documentaries. We don't know. The documentaries were

:09:23.:09:28.

about to cause a backlash. The whole country was totally shocked by the

:09:29.:09:33.

death of a member of the Royal family, and a popular member of the

:09:34.:09:38.

Royal family. And I am sure that this will be a passing stage. Yes.

:09:39.:09:47.

Deep PR machinery is brilliant. They have done a fantastic miraculous

:09:48.:09:55.

thing after she did die. -- The PR machinery. Underneath this, though,

:09:56.:10:01.

there is true. I want child to say, absolutely now, to remember Diana

:10:02.:10:06.

and to say it, I made... I was not good to have. He would not do that.

:10:07.:10:15.

Why not? All over the world, people have had bad marriages, done that

:10:16.:10:20.

things. Which of us can say that we have never done anything bad? I have

:10:21.:10:25.

not done anything this bad! I haven't! He has never talked about

:10:26.:10:34.

his side of the story. He has! OK, he has a bet. I thought she was

:10:35.:10:44.

amazing. -- a bit. And look at her sons, they are doing wonderful

:10:45.:10:48.

things. But I am just saying that I think divorce is now very common,

:10:49.:10:54.

sadly, and I think, yes, she had a very bad time, but the she had a

:10:55.:10:58.

very bad time from childhood. It would be good to have just a simple

:10:59.:11:02.

thing saying the boys have now spoken very honestly about their

:11:03.:11:08.

mother, their dad... Beautifully, beautifully... Beautifully. And now

:11:09.:11:15.

they're Dabney to say something. And what about the Sun? Duping people

:11:16.:11:25.

actually care about this? -- and now their dad needs to. -- do you think

:11:26.:11:36.

people actually care about this? I think it must be very upsetting for

:11:37.:11:44.

the boys to see all of this, as well as having spoken about their love

:11:45.:11:49.

for her. I think this 20 years on... We have to let it go now.

:11:50.:11:52.

It has been a pleasure, as usual. Coming up next, it is The Film

:11:53.:12:04.

Review. Enjoy it.
