Hello and welcome to our look at the morning's papers.
With me are Kate Devlin, political correspondent
for the Glasgow Herald, and Joel Taylor, deputy editor of the Metro.
Political problems for both the Conservatives and Labour dominate
The Telegraph says Jeremy Corbyn is on the verge
of demanding that Labour MPs oppose military action in Syria -
despite most of the Shadow Cabinet being supportive of air strikes.
The paper claims this would provoke an unprecedented crisis
According to the Independent, Union boss Len McCLuskey has warned
Labour MPs against trying to oust Mr Corbyn, threatening to mobilise
The Times has more on that McCluskey warning - it says he told Corbyn's
opponents they were writing their political obituaries.
It's the Conservatives who are on the cover of The i - the paper says
Tory Party Chair Lord Feldman is to be questioned over a bullying
scandal which has already prompted the resignation of minister Grant
Pressure mounts on Feldman is the headline in the Guardian, which says
support is growing for a full independent inquiry into the
scandal. And it is more of the same in the Mail which makes reference to
the Lord Feldman's close friendship with David Cameron. And finally the
Express has something entirely different, a pill which could help
us live to 120 is being tested on humans for the first time! Let's
begin with a happy story for a change. We are all Scottish know!
They Independent. Game, set and history! A picture of a victorious
Andy Murray, overcome with joy, having beaten Belgium and helped
Britain win the Davis Cup for the first time since 1936. It is Great
Britain, but the Scots will be particularly proud, Kate. This is
such a great photograph of Andy Murray. He was so emotional when he
won, which I think is a really interesting thing. We have seen a
different side to Andy Murray in the last couple of years, ever since he
famously cried when he did not win at Wimbledon, and the way he kind of
fell to the floor with emotion today when he won, I thought that was
absolutely fabulous. They have captured it in this headline and
photograph. A really nice headline there as well. Ending the drought at
Wimbledon, she has now ended the drought in the Davis Cup.
Absolutely. Extraordinary scenes at the end there and the manner of it
as well. I thought what also was very interesting was immediately
after he was embraced by his team-mates he made a point to run
over to the Belgian team to commiserate with them, and obviously
they have been going through some hard times there recently is, so you
could see not only did it mean a lot to him, but he put on a very good
display for the country. Well done, Andy. David Goffin did play
amazingly well and on another day he would have beaten somebody else.
Let's stay with the Independent and onto the pressing issue of air
strikes and what is happening in the Labour Party, with Jeremy Corbyn in
particular. Len McCluskey warns against ousting Corbin, he warns
Labour MPs, this is the leader of Unite. How much cloud does he have
in this? Possibly not with many of the Parliamentary Labour Party, but
it is interesting how you can now it is interesting how you can now
see a split within Labour, not the parliamentary party but with those
who voted for Corbyn in such massive numbers and those in the House of
Commons -- how much clout does he have. Those in the House of Commons
who see the situation in a very different way under the situation in
a very different way, and could vote for air strikes in Syria. A
difficult one for the Labour Party, Kate. If they try to get rid of
Jeremy Corbyn, have a leadership election, he could win again, so
they can't oust him without another plan. An extraordinary set of
circumstances and these are the thoughts Labour MPs are having, they
are trying to work through ideas about what exactly would happen.
Lots of Labour MPs feel actually, you know, especially the ones very
against Jeremy Corbyn and who would like to see a different leader, they
feel it is just too early for a new reader. Like you say, the issue of
another leadership election, that either he would win again or another
left candidate would come in to replace him. And there is a real
kind of feeling about what are they going to do? That said, the phrase I
have heard about Hilary Benn in the past couple of days from some Labour
MPs is, the nice man, and should they be forced into this situation
by their own leader, the idea is that something could happen --
cometh. And the showdown with MPs. Wondering whether he could call an
extraordinary meeting to insist the back his stance. That would be
dynamite, wouldn't it? He is meeting his Shadow Cabinet tomorrow and
quite a row has developed this evening about who will decide their
policy on going to war and Jeremy Corbyn has very clearly said it is
the leader 's decision. Others are talking about the Shadow Cabinet
making the decision and it is this that is really going to explode into
the open tomorrow. There is clearly the open tomorrow. There is clearly
a conservative push by certain figures to try to get him to agree
to a free vote. Even his close friend and ally, John McDonnell. And
you imagine there will forcibly be resignations in the short-term. It
will come to a head again. Very interesting week, not even mention
whether they would have enough vote in parliament for a vote this week.
Let's look at the Times. Tear gas fired on protesters. There were not
many protesters out on the streets compared to previous events like
this because of what happened in Paris two weeks ago, the terrorist
attacks, that Bisla the authorities have clamped down on that. Yes, --
obviously the authorities. Not very pretty scenes. The candles, the
commemorations for people killed in those attacks, apparently some of
those were thrown, too, by protesters. Pretty ugly. President
Cudd is clearly not happy. As he clearly was -- president Hollande.
Inviting 150 readers. But a protest was extraordinary, all the peers of
shoes? Yes, and I agree with you. From what France was all on says,
the tensions he is under, very understandably -- with what Hollande
says. The eyes of the world are now on Paris. They are, and have been
for the past few weeks, four very different reasons. In the Metro.
Junk food banned from nine o'clock, on the front of your paper, Joel. An
intention or hope from MPs? It is a recommendation from the House of
Commons select committee. The idea that adverts for junk food would be
banned from pre-what a shed programmes and also that the 20% tax
should be placed on the supermarkets display suite at the
end of hours -- pre-watershed. I know this is the second time these
sorts of things have been recommended in recent weeks. I
imagine it will be the same this time. There does not seem to be a
lot of appetite within the Government to do this, does their?
Even though it would be popular with quite a lot of campaign groups. It
would, and possibly lots of parents as well but there would be lots of
other people it would not be popular with. Certainly the Conservatives
have all was been keen to edge away from things that look like state
intervention and it is quite a difficult one for the Government to
kind of wrestle with and tried to realise where to come down on it. I
think part of the problem as well is the evidence for the impact these
would have is quite mixed. The picture from experts is quite mixed
and so I would probably agree with you. I think they may end up sitting
on the shelf. We may be reading them for quite awhile. Let's look the
Daily Express. A pill to help us live to 120! This may slow the
ageing process. Hands up, around this desk, who would want a pill
like that? None of us! We all said the same thing, I don't want one of
those. What is it supposed to do? They think this drug could wipe out
diseases such as Alzheimer's, which would easily be a terrific-mac
achievement in itself. The prospect of living to 120, with or without
Alzheimer's, it does seem... A little bit beyond most people's
ambition -- terrific. Nevertheless these trials have been going ahead
by the American food and drugs administrations we could have the
prospect of someone like Donald Trump living to 120... Perhaps we
should be slightly more optimistic. I am flip-flopping! I guess the
problem is that this society is not really geared up, probably most
people would argue, even for the longevity a lot of people currently
live to and it is all about quality of life and if we could kind of
increase and perhaps change society to better treat older people, then
perhaps people would be keener to live to 110, perhaps, but not 120.
At some point we have to shuffle off to make way for the people being
born, don't we! Of course. Goodness knows what the world population
would soar to. I am not interested. I do not want one, thank you very
much. Charlotte, adorable pictures of the baby princess taken by Kate.
Do you like these pictures? I think they are very good pictures. It is
extraordinary how much Charlotte looks like her brother which is very
interesting. I also think they probably show her parents in quite a
good light. They have decided not to release details about what she is
wearing because they do not want to see any hype around Charlotte, as
there is around Kate at the moment. Probably quite a sensible decision.
I think she looks a bit like the Queen? I have not seen that just
yet. I will have to study that, but, yes, perhaps. It could be a
mini corgi she is playing with. It looks like a spaniel to me. It will
be the toy of the year for under one-year-olds probably. Kate and
Joel will be back at half past 11 for another look at the front pages.
Stay with us on BBC news because British warplanes could be in the
error within days if the Government moves ahead with the vote on it
strikes. And that is a big if. And now on BBC news it is time for
