Decision day approaches for Labour MPs.


They are poised to decide who will take on Jeremy Corbyn.


Will it be Angela Eagle or Owen Smith?

divided on Trident and with MPs turning on their leader.

bound to exacerbate the leadership tensions there.


The parliamentary motion in favour of a Trident replacement


It was a binary motion - for or against, but Labour managed


to split three ways - for, against and abstain.


And tonight, Labour's leadership contest is also split three ways.


Jeremy Corbyn, in the running of course, and two challengers


putting themselves up for a fight, Angela Eagle and Owen Smith.


The two challengers should become one before long.


Our political editor Nick Watt is with me.


the result of the Trident vote, any surprise? No surprise, parliament


has voted overwhelmingly in favour of replacing Trident. That means a


sizeable number of Labour in these voted with the government but


crucially they voted for official Labour Party policy, to support the


nuclear deterrent. Jeremy Corbyn, facing a leadership challenge, a


great opportunity for him to burnish his credentials as a lifelong


supporter of unilateral nuclear disarmament. Where does this leave


the leadership race? We have learned that the two challengers, Angela


Eagle and Owen Smith, are going to agree a unity candidate when


nominations close at 5pm on Wednesday. The candidate with the


fewest number of nominations will stand aside. So we thought with 48


hours to go until the deadline, we would have a look at the dark horse


candidate, Owen Smith. It isn't that long ago that the man


who could be on the cusp of challenging Jeremy Corbyn for the


leadership of the Labour Party was barely known outside the world of


political think tanks. Bevan has gone. Owen Smith is being hailed by


his friends as Labour's great hope, in the mould of his hero and fellow


Welshman, Nye Bevan. Very much the soft left of the Labour Party. Much


of is rooted in his own roots in Wales, someone who can see the other


point of view and is able to create a bridge between different parts of


the Labour Party. Smith has moved to distance himself from Tony Blair by


calling for Klaus four of the Labour Party constitution to be rewritten


once again, to contain an explicit commitment to tackle inequality.


Some of the things that particularly excited me are his bold plans for


the economy, now is the time we need to be investing in the future, not


cutting back. That tradition of economic intervention. He's


articulated that, really powerfully and passionately in a way I think


that can win the next election on that platform. Critics in the Labour


Party say that Owen Smith started his political career as an adviser


to a Cabinet minister who was one of Tony Blair's greatest admirers. But


his former boss points out that Smith was no fan of the most


damaging legacy of the Blair in the, the Iraq war. On issues like the


Iraq war, for example, he was with me in 2003 when I was the Northern


Ireland Secretary in the Cabinet. He disagreed with the decision to go


into the Iraq war and he stuck with that position. Owen Smith knows he


has a challenge to show that he is a clean skin, untainted by Labour's


period in office. Friends say that he was one of the first senior


figures to clock the defining aspect of the party, the disconnect between


the grassroot members and the elite. His loss in a loss solid -- in a


solid Labour seat a decade ago taught him failure and never


neglecting natural supporters. Friends say that his experience in


the by-election has informed his approach to politics ever since. As


soon as he arrived in Parliament in 2010 he said that Labour had to move


on from the Blair and Brown era. Campaigning in the Scottish


independence referendum, he predicted the collapse in support


for Labour with the words" this feels like my constituency." He has


an instinctive feel for Labour as a son of one of its great historians.


His father, Dai Smith, the doyen of Street. It's only after Owen decided


he would work with us that I got to know him -- of history. Owen Smith


is working hard to show he is a man of the people. He ran into trouble


today when he put his family to the fore, inviting comparisons with his


rival, Angela Eagle, who is in a civil partnership. I'm glad you


think I'm normal, I am normal, I grew up in a normal household, I


have a wife and three children, my wife is a teacher. Owen Smith is a


determined political fighter but he can sometimes appear a bit on


worldly. During his time as a BBC radio producer he was once asked to


get a police response to an unfolding crime story. Smith


telephoned 999, prompting an official complaint by the Met. He


made to be a bit more savvy if he's going to wrest control of the Labour


Party. Just to give you one bit of data,


for what it's worth. The bookies have Jeremy Corbyn


as favourite to win the leadership race, but Owen Smith


is not far behind. The odds imply a 54%


chance of Corbyn winning, Well, I'm joined by three Labour MPs


with three different views. Lisa Nandy is backing Owen Smith,


Lilian Greenwood is supporting Angela Eagle and Barry Gardiner,


who opposes the challenge Lilian, you published a speech that


you gave to your party about why you weren't behind Jeremy Corbyn. What


anecdote can you get from that that you would say is the most telling


for what's wrong with the Corbyn leadership? For me, it's all about


confidence or rather the lack of it. Calendar item is when rail fares go


up at the start of the year and Labour had a brand-new policy, a


very popular policy around renationalising the railways. We


planned to go out and do the work on the 4th of January, we had activists


ready to highlight our policy and ready to talk about the


Conservatives' failure and that very day when we had started doing the


media rounds, Jeremy Lawlor is re-shuffle and completely knocked it


off the newspapers -- Jeremy launched his reachable. At a leader


has to do reshuffle when he has two reshuffle. It wasn't a little press


think it was a huge media item that was planned for a long time. If that


was the only example, I wouldn't be saying that I'd lost confidence but


unfortunately that was only one of many examples. Lisa, is that your


experience too Western Mark during the leadership election when Jeremy


fought on the ticket of changing politics, that was Barry welcomed


and we should recognise it was an important moment for the party but


the experienced Lilian described is the experience of many of my Shadow


Cabinet colleagues, finding that the culture of having small groups


around the leader making decisions outside of the collective leadership


team has continued, we haven't been able to change that. What is worse


is that when it became apparent that this was becoming a real crisis and


a small group of us who are politically and personally


sympathetic to Jeremy and the attempts he's made to bring people


into his team went to see him it became very apparent that the


collective leadership around him were not prepared to reach out and


unite and compromise. In fact they were telling us they were going to


do the opposite, even if the likely result is to smash the party. The


truth is that none of us should support that. Barry Gardiner, why


are you supporting that? I'm taking on the Conservatives because I


believe it was incredible that at a time when we had seen the results of


the referendum, when we had a Prime Minister being forced to resign as a


result of it, our top team, as it were, went a while. I don't think


that was right -- went AWOL. The weight in which it was done was to


try and get Jeremy to resign rather than following the party process, to


say we will have a contest and here is someone standing against them and


they have 50 votes -- the way in which it was done. That would have


been upfront, it would have been tough but it would have been


according to the process. The rather nasty undermining process. They


tried to force out without a vote. I think that was very wrong and it was


disrespectful. You are shaking your head. That isn't how it was, that


morning of the result when Jeremy called for the triggering of article


50 without even talking to the Shadow Cabinet, without talking to


the leader of the European Parliamentary Labour Party, was the


last straw. I could imagine having to talk to my voters, there was a


possibility of a very speedy general election, and they would ask me, do


you think Jeremy is the right person to lead the country and I wouldn't


be able to look them in the eye and say yes. Do you think he's the right


person to lead the country? Let's say we have an election in October,


you would say that he's the right man to be Prime Minister? As you


know, I didn't support Jeremy nine months ago and I will be


nominating... You would say that he should be Prime Minister? Any Labour


leader is better than any Conservative Prime Minister because


a Labour leader will deliver Labour policies and that is what is needed


by the people who we serve in this country, the people who are


marginalised, suffering from benefits cuts, the people who


absolutely need jobs that are not just wasted jobs. One of the key


test of a leader isn't whether he or she is prepared to stand up to their


enemies but whether they are prepared to stand up to their


friends and I think too much of what we've heard from people like Lilian


has shown that actually we don't have a situation in the Labour Party


where someone is prepared to do that. I also think, Barry, honestly,


that this isn't just about members of Parliament losing confidence in


Jeremy. We know that the membership is divided. Many people absolutely


support Corbyn and many people oppose him. We cannot be a united


political force if both the parliamentary party and large


sections of the membership have lost confidence in the leader. Including


newcomer from the sounds of this. All -- including you, from the


sounds of this. We don't own the party as members of Parliament, the


party operates according to democratic processes and what we


need to do is to find a negotiated way forward where all sides of the


party... Part two is both of you, backing


different candidates for checking on Jeremy Corbyn. Give me the 12 word


pitch. I am backing Angela Eagle because... I am not clear what the


distinctive pitches are. What is it that makes you back Angela Eagle? We


need somebody who can heal the party and the country and I think Angela


has got the experience, we have seen her resting George Osborne, the


experience of uniting the party, a brilliant chair of the national


policy forum, she is not factional and is frankly courageous. I think


it is about time the Labour Party was led by a woman. What is your


short pitch? I would agree with something one said, he would be


proud to serve under Angela Eagle if she emerged as a candidate and I


would echo that, I would do so with real pride. But what is good? What I


want in a Labour Party leader is someone with socialist values but a


plan to achieve them, who understands deeply that the way we


get the best answers for the country is to draw upon all the traditions


of the party in the Shadow Cabinet and the membership and somebody who


is relentlessly focused on the challenges we have now and coming


down the line rather than rehearsing old arguments of the past. How


important is it that a woman should be leader? Angela Eagle is making a


lot of that. When you say, would you drop out, it is basically about the


X chromosome? It is primarily about her qualities as a person, about


what I have seen of her in the time I have known her and were both pride


trading women but the Tories have got their second female Prime


Minister, goodness knows... 2-0! And for the party that is founded on the


basis of equality, I would agree, I would love a woman leader, but


equally I would love to see a feminist in Number 10 Downing St, I


don't believe we have that, Owen Smith is that person. Who is the


more left-wing? I am not sure. I would not say you cannot tell the


difference but what is happening in this debate is in many domestic


policy areas, there is not a huge mound of difference between members


of the Labour Party, I think myself, Harry, Lillian, we fundamentally


agree about the NHS in public hands, the railways in public hands and


that the basis of the economy should be about investment and not just


cuts. All of us are united on that and that is why we need a candidate


who can reach out across the party and bring us together. Barry


Gardiner, who would you support? Jeremy Corbyn? I am not supporting


or nominating anybody. You are members of the party. In the end, I


will have a vote. But I don't know. I will listen to the arguments as


they are made for the next couple of months and at the end of the day, I


will vote for whoever I think represents the best chance of us


getting a Labour government. There is an argument that I have heard


that is, you are saving the best candidates for the next leadership


election. These two are not the true a list. Lisa, you have been


mentioned as that! Why are you not running? Because I think that Owen


Smith is the best candidate and he asked me the same question and I


said that I think you should do this, you are the person to unite


this party and win the election and he would make an amazing Prime


Minister. You would support him, of all the other Labour MPs, you will


lose the next one and take one for the team... No, he is my top pick to


leave this party. Can you say the same thing about Angela Eagle?


Absolutely, there was no way I am writing off the next election, I


want to win the next election, that is why I am making the argument is,


the voters who put me in Westminster need a Labour government. And one


last quick one, there is a deal that only one of them can stand to beat


Jeremy Corbyn because it focuses the debate about one or the other rather


than some confused message? You cannot have two people standing on a


unity ticket and the truth is, both Angela and Owen Smith can reach out


to heal some of these divisions and unite the party and that is why we


need one of them going forward. Angela Will Pooley out? Everybody in


the Labour Party would like there to be one single candidate but it has


to be someone who can reach out to the Parliamentary party but unite


all of the wings of the party amongst the membership and I know


that Angela Eagle can do that but I have no doubt that Owen Smith could


also do that. -- Owen Smith. Thank you all.


Well, these are exceptional political times over here.


But they are also exceptional over in the US - the Republican National


Convention getting ready to crown Donald Trump this week


as its Presidential candidate in the election in November.


It's all happening over in Cleveland, Ohio.


Good evening. Almost ready, we should say. You join us from


Cleveland, Ohio, on a night of high drama - if we have learned one thing


about politics and the last month, is that predicted that he is dead


and tonight delegates have been trying to overturn the rules of the


convention that will secure Donald Trump that nomination. They have


been asking for a roll call to recognise every individual vote


rather than the block vote of each state, it is cognitive stuff but


essentially there is still an insurgency RFID. The Colorado


delegation which understand was walking out of you in protest in


response to this... In the opinion of the chair,


the ayes have it. APPLAUSE


If it sounds like the attempted coup has failed, we're hearing that the


Colorado delegation is going to try again. This is an embarrassing


moment for the self-styled law and order candidate, Donald Trump. And


the convention is set against a backdrop of disunity, not just here


but across the country as America reels from more racially motivated


killings. Donald Trump has called America and divided crime scene. Is


he the man to offer unity? We begin our report away


from the pomp and proceedure, on the dirt tracks of Trumbull


country. A Sunday afternoon spent bashing up


cars is a strangely, They call this Demolition DARby -


DURby, here - and it pulls in the mostly white crowds


from rural Ohio. You just take a regular


old American-made car and strip it down to the bare bones and you bring


it out here and you smash it and smash it until


there is nothing left. If it sounds like a metaphor


for what Donald Trump is doing to the Republican Party right now,


Democrats like Michael The convention begins today,


just a couple of It will probably be more of a wreck


than what you will see today! The Confederate flag,


a symbol of southern They will tell you it is about


pride, but it is a vestige of the country's civil war


and a reminder of the deep divisions Kyle here sees Donald


Trump as his Superman. And Superman, don't forget, fights


a never-ending battle for truth, I don't know much about


politics but I'll wing it! If you are an idiot


and you are screwing up America, he will tell you and


then will fix it. And, to be fair, America itself


is feeling pretty ANNOUNCER: Please give a warm


welcome to the chairman of the Republican National Committee -


Reince Priebus of Wisconsin. As the convention opened,


the committee chairman, Reince Priebus, welcomed


delegates with a brief Our nation grieves when we see


these awful killings. Will you join me in a moment


of silence? Outside, they find less


euphemistic ways of saying it. Donald Trump has looked


at the racial tension that has erupted in Baton Rouge, in Dallas,


in Ferguson and beyond, and called America


"a divided crime scene" - wilfully oblivious, perhaps,


of the effect his own language He points to Obama as the man


to blame for weakness and calls himself the candidate


for law and order. He is not helping to promote


dialogue between people. He is just trying to


promote more division. Do you think that racial tensions


in the country have got worse? I tell you what,


talking is over with. We want this and we want this,


do you know what I mean? What does that mean,


payback time is over? An eye for an eye and


a tooth for a tooth. The latest poll here for NBC gives


Donald Trump a stunning 0% support from black voters in Ohio,


a crucial electoral battleground that has picked the Presidential


winner the last 13 times. He is causing people who have


all this hate towards minorities and these other kinds of people that


aren't part of the majority, and everything he stands


for is causing them to rise up. Crime rates have actually declined


in recent years but Trump's invocation of law and order


and his message to the majority echoes another Republican leader


at a time of historic unrest. "The silent majority" was a phrase


first used by Nixon in 1960s to speak to those who didn't protest


the Vietnam War, but it quickly became a rallying call to white


conservatives amidst the black It appealed to those who felt left


behind, dispossessed by a perceived threat


to their way of life. And crucially - then, as now -


the language pitting minority Trump has adapted his slogan today


to "Make America Safe Again". And there will be plenty more


than happy to come For all those who worry


about the mud-flinging, there are plenty more


who appreciate his rhetoric At a time when few of those in power


seem to offer tangible solutions, they see a man unafraid to call it


as it is and think it is time that someone, somewhere came


to clear up the mess. Emily in Ohio and she will be


reporting from the convention throughout the week.


If you wanted to be proud of any modern British company,


you probably couldn't select a better one than ARM


It doesn't make anything, but it is the brains behind


the chips that power the smartphones we all buy; and in fact,


its chips are in many other devices, too.


It designs them and gets a few pence every time one is sold.


And fortunately for ARM, billions are sold each year.


The A in ARM, by the way, once stood for Acorn,


for those who remember those early days of Acorn Computers.


So should we worry that ARM may soon be part of a large Japanese group?


Here's our business editor, Helen Thomas.


You may not immediately recognise the name ARM Holdings,


but the UK's biggest technology company has a hand in almost


ARM's chip designs underpin the technology in about 95%


of the smartphones sold globally last year.


From its start in Cambridge with just 12 engineers in 1990,


ARM has grown at speed and its sales have nearly doubled in the past five


years and quadrupled over the past decade.


But the company makes only a tiny sliver of its revenues


Its biggest customers are overseas technology companies based


in places like the US, China and Taiwan.


That global dominance caught the eye of Japan's SoftBank, a telecoms


They're betting ?24 billion that ARM can replicate its dominance


in smartphones in what's called the Internet of Things -


connecting up physical devices from buildings and to household


appliances so they can talk to each other.


So, should SoftBank's interest be welcomed or is this another


example of a home-grown champion going overseas?


Theresa May has struck a cautious note on foreign takeovers


but today her new Chancellor of the Exchequer gave


The fact that a Japanese company, just three weeks after


the referendum decision, is prepared to make this kind


of commitment to the UK and commit to grow that kind


of business here in the UK, is a resounding endorsement


of the resilience of the British economy.


One of ARM's founders, at least, reckons it's too soon to say


whether a takeover by SoftBank should be mourned or celebrated.


To me, in this Internet of Things idea, there are things that ARM


is doing and things that SoftBank is doing and if you can put those


two ideas together and make them bigger and better and move


If you do it appallingly, it's the opposite of a win,


One source of comfort should be a series of SoftBank guarantees.


The Japanese company has pledged to double ARM's UK workforce over


And to keep its headquarters in Cambridge.


ARM's business isn't linked to the UK economy.


You could hardly find a more international business.


But SoftBank says it wants to invest, not cut,


and it wants to use this country as a base for innovation.


But this is the first time these kinds of legally enforceable


pledges have been used in a large UK takeover,


so who, in five years' time, is going to aggressively enforce


One concern is that UK companies may be snapped up by buyers taking


But ARM's strong share price performance since the vote to leave


the EU, plus a hefty price tag, means SoftBank isn't exactly


ARM's founding CEO has another worry about what Brexit means


We started in the UK, which happens to be in Europe


and there is European funding available in


a collaborative programme called the Open Microprocessors Systems


Initiative that made a huge contribution to the early


If we cast off from Europe, the UK isn't going to have that advantage.


I hope the government can keep that onside in whatever


With the takeover of ARM, the UK-listed tech sector


is losing not just a limb, but its backbone.


The UK's latest crop of start-ups could face new challenges getting


to the head of the pack in global tech.


Hermann Hauser was one of the founders of ARM and joins us


Good evening. You said this is one of the saddest days of your life.


Let me push you on wire. The company have said that they will preserve


ARM in Cambridge, keep the management, doubling the UK


headcount, so why are you so sad about it being bought by the


Japanese? ARM has been the greatest achievement in my life and the


reason I'm sad, not just for myself but technology in Britain, the next


generation of the architecture of smartphones but more importantly the


upcoming architecture of the Internet of things, which is going


to be a wave that is much larger than the smartphone waves, will


ultimately be designed in Japan and not the UK. What did you think of


Philip Hammond's comments, you probably heard them, that this is a


vote of confidence in Britain after Brexit? He's putting a brave face on


the fact that we've lost the one remaining high technology company


that has a global footprints. 15 billion ARMs sold last year, a high


percentage of the phones and there is no other UK tech company that has


that kind of global reach. More importantly, ARM can be the key


building block of putting an industrial strategy together for the


UK in the Internet of things. Tell me, if you were designing policy, if


Philip Hammond or Greg Clark, the new industry Minister was sitting


with you, what would you say they should do? I'm not thinking you want


the government to decide who owns what. Generally people think there


is room for a market in corporate control, so what would you like the


government to do? I was delighted to hear Theresa May in her speech in


front of number ten saying that industrial strategy is something


that she will support. The Internet of things is just happening right


now. The basic rules about how we build on top of the basic hardware,


which is already all ARM -based, so we've almost all won that basis of


the building blocks, what is needed now is the higher layers, the cyber


Security and most importantly, who owns the data? What would you like


the government to do? Would you like them to veto it and save sorry, even


though the management say that you should be able to buy it,


shareholders don't want to stop it, the government should say that it


cannot be bought and sold by the Japanese? I think it's too late for


that. Theresa May might introduce something like a golden share, for


the really strategically important companies in the future but for ARM,


this is too late. But you would like such a system? Let's face it, many


other countries intervened more than we do. AstraZeneca, a good example,


Obama basically blocked it, we didn't. Astra Zeneca is one of those


key companies. They played the leadership role in Cambridge and ARM


could do it the same in the tech sector. Do you think that we are


selling the company to cheaply? If you had ?25 billion, would you say


that the Japanese are getting it to cheaply, I will make a bigger bid


for the company because it is worth more? Absolutely. I think ARM is at


the centre of the next generation of the next wave of computing. I hear


talk about the six waves of computing and every new brave is


bigger than the previous one. We are in the middle of the smartphone


waves but the next one, everything being connected and there is a


simple interface for these things which will be connected through


voice. This will be so much bigger than the smartphones and we have an


opportunity to define the basic architecture of it. But if the


Japanese are paying too little, why was the share price so much lower


until they made the offer? Well, because sadly there are very few


people who seek the opportunity in the Internet of things and have the


money to pay the price, the premium, which is good, but not fantastic.
