have been drawn. The prize must be one today, even if no one gets all

:00:00.:00:00.

the numbers. Hello and welcome to our look ahead

:00:00.:00:17.

to what the papers will be With me are the journalist

:00:18.:00:21.

Benedicte Paviot, from the news channel France 24, and the political

:00:22.:00:24.

commentator and former adviser to Tony Blair,

:00:25.:00:28.

Matthew Doyle. The front pages. The independent

:00:29.:00:44.

leads with claims Jeremy Corbyn is planning to fast track changes to

:00:45.:00:48.

party policy on Trident. School discipline is the lead in the

:00:49.:00:52.

Observer which claims the Prime Minister will suggest parents should

:00:53.:00:55.

have a say in how the children are disciplined. The mail on Sunday

:00:56.:01:00.

matches our top story this evening, the swoop by police on the main

:01:01.:01:04.

suspect police want to speak to hear in connection with the murder of

:01:05.:01:08.

Shanna Blake and her young sons. The Sunday Times also carries a photo of

:01:09.:01:17.

the suspect, Mercer Simpson Kent. The Minister is the junior doctors

:01:18.:01:19.

strike planned for later this week. But stroke is the lead in the

:01:20.:01:22.

Telegraph with the health secretary claiming the walk-out could hurt A

:01:23.:01:27.

units. The sun splashes with allegations about the private life

:01:28.:01:30.

of the singer Cheryl Fernandez Rossini. Which we will not telling

:01:31.:01:38.

to -- delve into. Let's begin with the Observer and politics. Lucky

:01:39.:01:44.

Matthew is here. He can talk about the internal wranglings of the

:01:45.:01:50.

Labour Party. The top MP quitting is not on the front page. We have to

:01:51.:01:57.

delve to find out who this is. It is Alistair McGovern who is from the

:01:58.:02:02.

north-west. What she highlights in her comments is something that is a

:02:03.:02:06.

cause for concern within the Labour Party at the moment, when we should

:02:07.:02:11.

be having a fundamental debate about policy and the direction we need to

:02:12.:02:16.

go on, we lost the last election and until we have a conversation about

:02:17.:02:21.

that then we are not going to find the way forward. Jeremy Corbyn tries

:02:22.:02:25.

to regain the initiative with the column he has sent we need to focus

:02:26.:02:30.

on Tory failings in health, housing and education and I totally agree

:02:31.:02:33.

with him. The trouble is the reshuffle we had this week totally

:02:34.:02:38.

feels that test that he is setting himself. Instead of focusing on the

:02:39.:02:44.

big issues, for example on Tuesday, attacking the government over Europe

:02:45.:02:48.

and the disarray in the Conservative party on Thursday with George

:02:49.:02:53.

Osborne giving a speech on the economy, we were engaged in this

:02:54.:02:56.

debate about the reshuffle and what would have been more used to the

:02:57.:02:59.

Labour Party would be John McDonnell spending more of Thursday attacking

:03:00.:03:04.

George Osborne, rather than attacking colleagues who had been

:03:05.:03:10.

fired by the leader or inciting spurious conspiracy theories against

:03:11.:03:15.

the BBC. Journalists can't help themselves with a story like this.

:03:16.:03:21.

We are not necessarily reporting how the opposition is defending or

:03:22.:03:25.

attacking government policy, we are concentrating on the machinations of

:03:26.:03:31.

the party itself. Yes and it always has been. The majority of the time

:03:32.:03:37.

that Mr Corbyn has been leader, there have been stories constantly

:03:38.:03:42.

about him. One can and certain people do regularly accuse the

:03:43.:03:46.

media, whether it is television, radio or the written press in the

:03:47.:03:50.

United Kingdom, of being unfair and Mr Corbyn. They remind us daily

:03:51.:03:56.

about the fact that he has that big support of the crew members of the

:03:57.:04:00.

Labour Party. However, what keeps on coming up regularly, apart from a

:04:01.:04:06.

three-day long reshuffle, the fight with the BBC, not there will be

:04:07.:04:12.

another fight with Sunday Politics if, as is true in the Observer,

:04:13.:04:17.

Alistair McGovern from Wirral South resigns live on the BBC tomorrow.

:04:18.:04:25.

The fact of the matter is he is not helping himself because this kind of

:04:26.:04:34.

disunity and this bypassing of Labour MPs who are elected on a

:04:35.:04:39.

particular manifesto, which included the backing of Trident, is cause and

:04:40.:04:43.

not just tensions within the party but confusion up and down the United

:04:44.:04:47.

Kingdom about what the Labour Party currently stands for and what of the

:04:48.:04:54.

shadow can on it. Let's look at the story in the Independent. He is fast

:04:55.:05:03.

tracking the vote on Trident. The NEC could take the decision. That

:05:04.:05:09.

would be quite a move. It seems that the NEC is quite happy to support

:05:10.:05:16.

the disarmament, unilateral disarmament. It has several options.

:05:17.:05:21.

Again, I can back to the point that these are elected Labour MPs,

:05:22.:05:27.

elected on a manifesto in May 2015, where in January 2016, I think the

:05:28.:05:32.

public is entitled, despite the leadership campaign and resort to

:05:33.:05:38.

believe that their MPs can stand on the manifesto pasted on. It doesn't

:05:39.:05:41.

mean they cannot look at other issues that come up. What was the

:05:42.:05:47.

mechanism for how the national executive could take over

:05:48.:05:52.

policy-making? What it would mean was that what Jeremy Corbyn is

:05:53.:05:56.

looking to do here is to create an alternative power base with the

:05:57.:06:01.

national executive committee so he can go into a debate on Trident and

:06:02.:06:05.

say the shadow cabinet brings this but the national executive things

:06:06.:06:09.

that and try to create some balance of equals. The problem is not only

:06:10.:06:14.

is this making decisions in smaller and smaller rooms, it is excluding

:06:15.:06:19.

party members from the process and far more importantly it is excluding

:06:20.:06:23.

the public. What is worrying about the style of politics we are seeing

:06:24.:06:28.

is that it isn't opening up, it is not broadening debate, that really

:06:29.:06:33.

has been no focus on engaging and reaching out to the public and

:06:34.:06:37.

trying to work out how we do something very simple and that is

:06:38.:06:42.

get more people to vote Labour. Let's look at the Observer. Parents

:06:43.:06:48.

should take lessons in how to control children says the Prime

:06:49.:06:51.

Minister. We will get vouchers for classes because we all need guidance

:06:52.:06:55.

says David Cameron. I cannot disagree with him on that. It is how

:06:56.:07:01.

you tell people what they have got to do and different people have

:07:02.:07:04.

different ideas about parenting. They do and this surely shows in the

:07:05.:07:10.

second paragraph where you see the phrase nanny state appearing in

:07:11.:07:14.

speech marks how difficult it is how difficult it is further government

:07:15.:07:18.

to get into this territory. We know the impact that early years have on

:07:19.:07:25.

outcomes. We know the difference if we make some of these international

:07:26.:07:30.

-- intergenerational disadvantages. Parents who didn't have good

:07:31.:07:32.

parenting experiences themselves do need some work to 20. What's

:07:33.:07:36.

interesting is that he is looking to take wider. What he is looking to do

:07:37.:07:43.

is provide confidence for parents who may well be doing the right

:07:44.:07:48.

thing but don't have that person to consult. They need to know they are

:07:49.:07:53.

doing the right thing. Briefly, did the government in France tell

:07:54.:07:59.

families how to parent? I don't believe they do. There are a lot of

:08:00.:08:03.

single parent families and a lot of people up and down the United

:08:04.:08:07.

Kingdom who despite the fact that it is a challenge, bring up their

:08:08.:08:11.

children in a perfectly good way. I think this is rather, they do not

:08:12.:08:15.

think it is a good idea and I don't think there should be any pressure

:08:16.:08:19.

on parents and marking of Terence and you are a bad parent if you

:08:20.:08:23.

don't go to these classes. I think you can reach out to other people,

:08:24.:08:27.

not just your immediate family if you are not lucky to have your

:08:28.:08:30.

immediate family. Let's remember that this will be announced in a

:08:31.:08:34.

speech on Sunday but that also remember that David Cameron has been

:08:35.:08:38.

here before and that ended in tears and in meltdown. But look at the

:08:39.:08:44.

Sunday Telegraph. Strike will hurt patients. Hunt makes it last-minute

:08:45.:08:51.

appeal. We need some time ago that if this strike went ahead and it

:08:52.:08:56.

looks like it will on Tuesday, but a lot of operations would have to be

:08:57.:09:00.

cancelled. Here are Jeremy Hunt is saying that all -- some A

:09:01.:09:07.

departments could close and, therefore, he is having a pop at the

:09:08.:09:12.

BMA and saying, in a sense, but they are irresponsible. He is saying they

:09:13.:09:17.

are irresponsible. This is going to be higher in patients. On the back

:09:18.:09:21.

of the demonstration today in London and in other towns around the United

:09:22.:09:26.

Kingdom, big cities, midwives and nurses coming out because there is a

:09:27.:09:31.

change of them not having bursaries and a more, but needing to take out

:09:32.:09:35.

loans, there is another group who will then be financially strapped

:09:36.:09:43.

and the fact that the midwifery certainly head of the midwifery

:09:44.:09:46.

association is saying that this is bad because it is going to mean that

:09:47.:09:50.

men and women are going to make decisions to knock down this route

:09:51.:09:54.

and become nurses because they do not think they can afford it. This

:09:55.:09:59.

is actually really problematic. I wonder how much public support they

:10:00.:10:03.

will be because in the run-up to have been lots of lots of

:10:04.:10:06.

demonstrations of people on social media appearing to support the

:10:07.:10:09.

junior doctors, I wonder if they will in reality when it bites? The

:10:10.:10:14.

problem is that rhetoric like this from the Secretary of State doesn't

:10:15.:10:18.

help. What the public want to see is Jeremy Hunt is on social media

:10:19.:10:20.

appearing to support the junior doctors, I wonder if they will in

:10:21.:10:23.

reality when it bites? The problem is that rhetoric like this from the

:10:24.:10:25.

Secretary of State doesn't help. What the public want to see is

:10:26.:10:28.

Jeremy Hunt using this weekend to try to resolve this at the last

:10:29.:10:31.

minute rather than use this weekend to get in his argument first with

:10:32.:10:33.

lurid headlines in the Sunday papers. The public would rather see

:10:34.:10:38.

him focusing on sorting it out. EU razor wire blocks Balkans. Macedonia

:10:39.:10:42.

is building a razor wire fence at its border with Greece. This is the

:10:43.:10:49.

ongoing issue coming out of the migration crisis that we have seen,

:10:50.:10:53.

the failure to look at how we can attack of the core issues that are

:10:54.:11:00.

happening in north Africa and Syria and we are seeing real fragmentation

:11:01.:11:05.

of some of the principles, if you like, of the European Union. Angela

:11:06.:11:10.

Merkel, who took a lead on this, is coming under pressure domestically

:11:11.:11:16.

and, again, what we are seeing is a case for where we need more European

:11:17.:11:24.

leadership rather than less. Varied reactions in various parts of Europe

:11:25.:11:29.

to this crisis. Eight splintering in their approach. Very much so. The

:11:30.:11:38.

whole Schengen area, because Greece, and that is the preoccupation and

:11:39.:11:42.

that is why the Brits were fence is being built, modelled on the one

:11:43.:11:47.

built by Hungary before, because there is grave concern that the

:11:48.:11:51.

whole Balkan route has not been closed off and there will be a

:11:52.:11:55.

continued exodus of refugees coming in. As most countries face budget

:11:56.:12:06.

cuts, high unemployment in France, in Greece we know all the problems

:12:07.:12:11.

there, then what we have seen in Germany with these alleged sex

:12:12.:12:15.

attacks that do not seem so legit, they did happen, it is a question of

:12:16.:12:20.

identifying the perpetrators, there is real tension and ratcheting it

:12:21.:12:27.

up. One country is asking for a special summit on this. Slovakia. It

:12:28.:12:36.

does need to be a copper heads of policy and not just trying to build

:12:37.:12:39.

a fence that will be finished in if feud with time.

:12:40.:12:51.

The Sunday Telegraph, let's give Matthew the last word. Man reading

:12:52.:13:00.

the newspaper says... I can come to wine -- I love how he can fit

:13:01.:13:07.

several stories in one. Yet again we see the perils of the government

:13:08.:13:13.

trying to give advice to people about decisions people think they

:13:14.:13:16.

should have control over themselves. How would it go down in France if

:13:17.:13:21.

people were told seven units a week was all they should have? Apart from

:13:22.:13:26.

linking it from driving, I don't think anyone would pay any notice. A

:13:27.:13:32.

little red wine or champagne goes down very well and makes the world a

:13:33.:13:37.

happier place. Other beverages are available. They are and it is not

:13:38.:13:44.

seven units, it is 14 units, but seven classes. There is no parity

:13:45.:13:52.

between men and women. There is. Men are being told to drink the same. We

:13:53.:13:57.

are finally equal. I will decide the matter for myself. That is it pretty

:13:58.:14:03.

papers this hour. We will be back again at half past 11 with another

:14:04.:14:09.

look at the front pages. Coming up next, sorry, stay with us. We'll

:14:10.:14:14.

have more on the arrest made in Ghana of the man suspected of

:14:15.:14:17.

killing the former Eastenders actress Sian Blake and her two

:14:18.:14:18.

children.
