before starring in his own series of slapstick movies
during the 1950s, has died at his Las Vegas home aged 91.
Hello there and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will be
bringing us first thing tomorrow morning.
With me are the former Fleet Street editor,
Eve Pollard, and the journalist and columnist, Yasmin Alibhai-Brown.
Lovely to see you both again. We will come back to our chat in a
moment. First off, a quick look at the front pages.
They pay tribute to the British seven-year-old who was killed
in the Barcelona terror attack on Thursday,
after becoming separated from his mum while on Las Ramblas.
The Daily Telegraph headlines comments made by the UK's chief
trade negotiator in which he said post-Brexit deals will make
the world a safer place as Britain forges alliances with other
The Daily Express, meanwhile, claims Britain has seen a ?50
billion foreign investment boom since the vote for Brexit,
quoting analysis carried out by a Eurosceptic group.
The Financial Times says the Trump administration is to push hard
for tax reform in a bid to win back Republican voters.
Meanwhile, the Daily Mail writes that Prince Charles has seen a drop
in his popularity rating in the run-up to the 20th
anniversary of Princess Diana's death.
The Times says children are being exposed to an increase
in gambling adverts as betting websites push for new customers.
And the Guardian says the Crown Prosecution Service
is to crack down on social media hate crimes, making them as serious
as offences carried out face to face.
That is one of the stories will be talking about in a moment. However,
good evening do you both. We start off with the times. This fascinating
link, the latest information on the spend terror attacks. To Brussels,
how is this be made? There it is an Times, who is suspected. And good on
the Times, this is the first ever that has this on the front page. So
an imam suspected of masterminding the us learn attack also travelled
often to Belgium, a connections to Paris, and seems to have been a
major, kind of, dark figure, a groomer, almost, of young men, into
jihadism and terror. But they have made a number of links. What is
fascinating is this A3, the Audi, caught in Cambrils, that has also
been seen in France, as well. It is interesting, because one of the
boys' father says that this imam spent a lot of time with the boys.
The youngest attic was 18, that has been involved in this jihadi
terrorist attack. It is terrifying to think that someone who is
supposed to be a man of religion is influencing and grooming these boys,
usually boys are being in trouble, say you can repay your guilt by
doing something wonderful, or whatever. But the man who drove his
car is still at large. The one who is still at large, Younes
Abouyaaqoub, is 22. But the others were really just lads, who
apparently in the small place they were growing up in play football and
seemed happy enough. And we do have a problem, because there are many
imams online and across Europe, who have been flooded, as far as I know,
because a lot are alleging this, by Saudi Arabia. They want their brand
of Islam to the eight conquering ideology. So they want to take over
the world in terms of the minds and hearts of young people. What
astonishes me is that across Europe, this country is still a fond ally of
ours. And we should be doing something about Saudi Arabia. What
is extraordinary is that I think Saudi Arabia is the chair of human
rights and the United Nations. It is extraordinary! And their royals and
our royals, and all the President of America, Canada... We know why they
suck up to them, but if they are serious about dealing with them, it
is time. Very quickly, just to finish off this story, what was
fascinating about it was that they were not on anybody's radar. The
boys that did the attack, putting the imam a cypher, they did the
attack, but they will won't be on watch. They led double lives. They
went out and socialise and did not show any signs of being radicalised.
-- putting the imam aside for a moment. Yes. And of course, we have
GCHQ in this country, across Europe there is nothing like that. Spain
does have good intelligence, but the mistake that was made when they
found that this house that blew up, they thought it was an accident. And
I think that was a bad mistake. A gate turning to Mirror and one of
the victims of the atrocious attack. One of the victims is featured on
many the papers, Julian Cadman, the seven-year-old, separated from his
mother. He was obviously hit by this car in some way. Terrible, terrible
story, when you think this is the way the little boy and his life. And
his mother, of course, still in hospital. It is the soft targets, is
the soft targets, isn't it? Be random, soft targets. I was there
until Friday. -- the random. We were staying near to where the van
stopped. One street away. Everybody who has been to Barcelona, it is the
loveliest, easiest, sort of global cafe joint, if you like. That is
what they hate. The puritans, they are real puritans. Not unlike the
American neo-Nazis. They want the world to be not diverse, not to be
internationalist. I was impressed by a piece in yesterday's Times, we
said now we need to protect these people. They put bollards up in
places like France and on the Thames, and it is good to change the
way Europe looks, but this is something we need to do. We are
going to turn, now, to the Guardian, which has another picture of the
lovely Julian Cadman, but the story we are going to be looking at is the
online abuse. Here we have somebody from the Crown Prosecution Service,
which says we are going to deal with social media attacks as if they were
physical, to your face attacks, because often they end up with being
physical attacks, and they are, of course, very, very dangerous, with
young people, cyber bullying, all this goes on on social media. And
stalking, it can be terrifying! Frankly, it is about time we got to
grips with social media. It is totally unfettered. Television and
radio had to check their facts, social media does not. -- have to.
And because their real name. -- and nobody puts their real name. I
remember hearing somebody said that every time is something on social
media, they dreamt of the day they would have to put their name and
address next to it. Some of the strains of hate-crime, they say,
racism, homophobic, sexism... But the mental abuse, I wonder how they
will target, if they will, how they will target. We are going to look at
the Mail now, and they have a story on the royal family. The angle is
that Charles and Camilla are not too happy, allegedly, with the backlash
following the documentaries. We don't know. The documentaries were
about to cause a backlash. The whole country was totally shocked by the
death of a member of the Royal family, and a popular member of the
Royal family. And I am sure that this will be a passing stage. Yes.
Deep PR machinery is brilliant. They have done a fantastic miraculous
thing after she did die. -- The PR machinery. Underneath this, though,
there is true. I want child to say, absolutely now, to remember Diana
and to say it, I made... I was not good to have. He would not do that.
Why not? All over the world, people have had bad marriages, done that
things. Which of us can say that we have never done anything bad? I have
not done anything this bad! I haven't! He has never talked about
his side of the story. He has! OK, he has a bet. I thought she was
amazing. -- a bit. And look at her sons, they are doing wonderful
things. But I am just saying that I think divorce is now very common,
sadly, and I think, yes, she had a very bad time, but the she had a
very bad time from childhood. It would be good to have just a simple
thing saying the boys have now spoken very honestly about their
mother, their dad... Beautifully, beautifully... Beautifully. And now
they're Dabney to say something. And what about the Sun? Duping people
actually care about this? -- and now their dad needs to. -- do you think
people actually care about this? I think it must be very upsetting for
the boys to see all of this, as well as having spoken about their love
for her. I think this 20 years on... We have to let it go now.
It has been a pleasure, as usual. Coming up next, it is The Film
Review. Enjoy it.
