to spend more on cycling and road safety measures.

:00:00.:00:00.

Labour has issued formal warning to members of its front-bench team

:00:00.:00:00.

who disobeyed Jeremy Corbyn's order to vote for Brexit.

:00:00.:00:00.

The MPs won't be sacked but they have been asked

:00:07.:00:09.

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

:00:10.:00:22.

With me are Jo Phillips, the political commentator,

:00:23.:00:30.

Welcome back to this country. It is lovely to come back to the grey

:00:31.:00:34.

weather. I have missed it so much. And Nigel Nelson, Political Editor

:00:35.:00:41.

of the Sunday Mirror First up the Observer -

:00:42.:00:43.

it's reporting what it calls 'unprecedented criticism' by a group

:00:44.:00:48.

of leading retired bishops over the Church of England's

:00:49.:00:50.

stance on lesbian, gay While the Mail on Sunday looks back

:00:51.:00:51.

at the supposed exchange between Diane Abbott

:00:52.:01:00.

and the Brexit Secretary David Davis - that's said to have

:01:01.:01:02.

happened after the vote The Sunday Telegraph focuses

:01:03.:01:04.

on Commons Speaker John Bercow and his controversial comments

:01:05.:01:11.

about Donald Trump's visit - also mentioning there

:01:12.:01:13.

that the President may go to areas of the UK that voted

:01:14.:01:16.

heavily to leave the EU. The Sunday Express is also looking

:01:17.:01:18.

ahead to that visit and says Mr Trump will Wspeak to the peopleW

:01:19.:01:25.

at a stadium rally with the proceeds It's domestic politics for the lead

:01:26.:01:28.

in the Sunday Times - and it says secret succession

:01:29.:01:32.

planning is underway for the next

:01:33.:01:43.

Labour Leader after Jeremy Corbyn - Everyone seems to be except in that

:01:44.:01:54.

President Trump is coming. I think he is. This is an exclusive story by

:01:55.:02:03.

Caroline Wheeler. Saying Donald Trump will snub Parliament and speak

:02:04.:02:06.

to the people. He will do a big rally somewhere outside of London,

:02:07.:02:11.

probably in Birmingham, Cardiff or somewhere else. A big, secure venue.

:02:12.:02:19.

I imagine the American secret services are probably pulling their

:02:20.:02:23.

hair out at the thought of it to raise money for veterans. The couple

:02:24.:02:28.

of things in this story. He was going to come during the summary

:02:29.:02:32.

says anyway, which avoids the problem of him not speaking to

:02:33.:02:38.

Parliament. Whether it is his remake to say I want to meet people are not

:02:39.:02:44.

politicians. I am not sure what the precedent is for president is not

:02:45.:02:49.

doing big rallies. Previously, Obama and Clinton have done stuff with

:02:50.:03:00.

schools, arts and charities. I do not see why he cannot do that. State

:03:01.:03:05.

visits are not set in stone. There seems not to be a reason why not. It

:03:06.:03:11.

is looking more like the end of summer when Parliament is in recess.

:03:12.:03:16.

One of the ideas we gather is that he might have been able to come at

:03:17.:03:20.

the same time as the Tory Party conference and they might have got

:03:21.:03:23.

him up there to address them. That would have been a rally of some

:03:24.:03:31.

sort. David Cameron is very keen on Michael Bloomberg, the mayor of New

:03:32.:03:40.

York. I think they have abandoned that idea. They have decided

:03:41.:03:45.

was too much controversy. I think was too much controversy. I think

:03:46.:03:49.

the state visit will go ahead. All particularly intriguing because of

:03:50.:03:51.

the remarks from John Burke in the the remarks from John Burke in the

:03:52.:03:55.

House of Commons putting them back in the spotlight. It has cast doubt

:03:56.:04:01.

over the future of his job. What do you make of the story on the front

:04:02.:04:08.

of the Telegraph? I think you have answered it by saying back in the

:04:09.:04:12.

spotlight. That is where he likes to be. This is a new row. Apparently

:04:13.:04:19.

John Birt coe was doing a talk to students at Reading University. --.

:04:20.:04:33.

He declared he had voted remain. He spoke very politically. We all know

:04:34.:04:42.

that the speaker is supposed to be apolitical, even though they come

:04:43.:04:46.

from one of the main parties. Once you become the Speaker, you put

:04:47.:04:54.

aside those foolish things. He's stands unopposed as well. That is

:04:55.:05:02.

the tradition. I think probably this is slightly more damaging than his

:05:03.:05:08.

comments about Donald Trump. Why does it matter? For people who see

:05:09.:05:14.

the Speaker, a lot of people only see him at Prime Minister's

:05:15.:05:17.

Questions. Why does it matter what his views are and if he expresses

:05:18.:05:23.

them? Effectively years chairman of a big meeting, isn't he? I am not

:05:24.:05:29.

sure that John Kaziranga National Park would like that description of

:05:30.:05:34.

him. Someone like John Bercow is incredibly powerful. -- that John

:05:35.:05:41.

Bercow. In one sense it is right. He is the one person in the country in

:05:42.:05:47.

a position to throw the Prime Minister out of the House of Commons

:05:48.:05:50.

if necessary. Absolute power is right. That seems to have led him to

:05:51.:05:54.

make the astonishing outburst about Donald Trump in the first place. Is

:05:55.:06:01.

it astonishing if so many MPs share that view? Is he representing the

:06:02.:06:08.

view of the majority in the House of Commons? If he wanted to represent

:06:09.:06:12.

the views of MPs coming he could have engineered a vote. There will

:06:13.:06:16.

be a debate about Donald Trump addressing parliament. That will

:06:17.:06:21.

take place in Westminster Hall if the Speaker tried to introduce that

:06:22.:06:24.

in the main chamber there would have been a vote and that would have can

:06:25.:06:30.

is the opinion of MPs. That could have given him cover. He wants to be

:06:31.:06:36.

the person to say it. I am sure the Queen, with all her years of

:06:37.:06:38.

experience, is more dealing with a state visit from

:06:39.:06:46.

someone that perhaps she may not welcome as much a sum and she has

:06:47.:06:51.

something more in common with. We have had Mugabe, we have had the

:06:52.:06:57.

Bahraini and is, the Chinese. It is not like we strangers to people we

:06:58.:07:05.

do not agree with. I sure the Queen could have organised state banquet.

:07:06.:07:14.

You do not hear about the Queen being a remain or a Brexiteer, do

:07:15.:07:25.

you? I know lots of people think that the House of Commons is very

:07:26.:07:31.

old-fashioned. It is. It is those things, there are plenty of ways of

:07:32.:07:36.

dealing with these things without you having to be personal. You have

:07:37.:07:41.

both been knocking around Westminster for quite awhile. You

:07:42.:07:46.

have seen a series of Speakers in the nicest possible way. You have

:07:47.:07:51.

seen a range of speakers that you go back to Jack whether or, before. Is

:07:52.:07:59.

John Bercow so unusual. Has he done things differently? One thing he has

:08:00.:08:04.

tried to do is try to modernise the place. He has brought in a young

:08:05.:08:10.

family. That is something people do not remember before. I think it is

:08:11.:08:15.

rather uncomfortable for him. He has tried to do that. What he has

:08:16.:08:20.

achieved quite a bit is to stand up for the right of backbenchers. We

:08:21.:08:25.

have made sure they can get their voices heard and it is not just the

:08:26.:08:29.

top was a good classes in government and opposition. Will he still be in

:08:30.:08:38.

a year's time question I think he will. If they voted no confidence in

:08:39.:08:44.

him in the next week it would fail. In the Observer, the Church of

:08:45.:08:50.

England is back. The Synod. Simek with a meet this week, that is the

:08:51.:08:54.

ruling body of the Church of England. -- They meet this week.

:08:55.:09:07.

This is a row which has come from quite a group of retired bishops,

:09:08.:09:13.

actually very prominent bishops, including people like Peter Selby,

:09:14.:09:17.

the former Bishop of Worcester and the former Bishop of Oxford. That is

:09:18.:09:22.

why most people would know these names. They are people who have

:09:23.:09:29.

Gravett as and background. They have written basically to the ruling soon

:09:30.:09:34.

odd and said, you are talking the talk about being more inclusive on

:09:35.:09:44.

gay marriage and LGB TU rights but you are not walking the walk.

:09:45.:09:48.

The fact it is coming from very respected, sensible figures in the

:09:49.:09:58.

Church of England is why it is significant. The Church of England

:09:59.:10:02.

seems to March 20 years behind the rest of the country. We have only

:10:03.:10:08.

recently had a woman bishop. They have been arguing about it for

:10:09.:10:12.

years. Women clergy for nearly 40 years. It took that long to get

:10:13.:10:17.

there. Now we're having the argument over lesbian and gay rights. Again

:10:18.:10:22.

the country has moved on. When gay marriage was introduced when David

:10:23.:10:26.

Cameron really stuck his neck out. He put his political future on the

:10:27.:10:31.

line. The country was perfectly happy with that. That is what the

:10:32.:10:36.

church has to realise. It is not a huge issue. We are running out of

:10:37.:10:41.

time to stop want to jump ahead a couple of stories to a cartoon on

:10:42.:10:46.

the front of the Daily Telegraph. It has been a week of not very good

:10:47.:10:51.

news. Not very good news about the National Health Service. We have

:10:52.:10:56.

done a week of broadcasting in the BBC but there have been lots of

:10:57.:11:00.

other stories about what the experience is like for staff and for

:11:01.:11:05.

patients. Matt, always reliable on the front of the Telegraph. Tell us

:11:06.:11:12.

about it. A chap turns around and talks to his wife. He has a great

:11:13.:11:18.

package in his hand. That is a 1000 piece jigsaw. He says I am taking

:11:19.:11:24.

this with me in case I have an accident and end up in A We do

:11:25.:11:30.

need a laugh sometimes. I hope neither of you have been in hospital

:11:31.:11:35.

recently. No, I have not. Not at all. We have come in for a paper

:11:36.:11:47.

review. How are you with jigsaw puzzles? Very good. I love them. I

:11:48.:11:57.

will take a load of books into AMD with me. I think. -- A Do stay

:11:58.:12:07.

tuned. Thanks to Nigel and joke with the both of you will be back at 11th

:12:08.:12:15.

are. Coming next, Reporters.
