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


the numbers. Hello and welcome to our look ahead


to what the papers will be With me are the journalist


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


commentator and former adviser to Tony Blair,


Matthew Doyle. The front pages. The independent


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


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


Observer which claims the Prime Minister will suggest parents should


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


units. The sun splashes with allegations about the private life


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


and the disarray in the Conservative party on Thursday with George


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


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


Labour Party would be John McDonnell spending more of Thursday attacking


George Osborne, rather than attacking colleagues who had been


fired by the leader or inciting spurious conspiracy theories against


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


We are not necessarily reporting how the opposition is defending or


attacking government policy, we are concentrating on the machinations of


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


the disarmament, unilateral disarmament. It has several options.


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


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


public is entitled, despite the leadership campaign and resort to


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


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


mechanism for how the national executive could take over


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


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


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


say the shadow cabinet brings this but the national executive things


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


should take lessons in how to control children says the Prime


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


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


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


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


second paragraph where you see the phrase nanny state appearing in


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


and the fact that the midwifery certainly head of the midwifery


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


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


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


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


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


demonstrations of people on social media appearing to support the


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


identifying the perpetrators, there is real tension and ratcheting it


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


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


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


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


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


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


trying to give advice to people about decisions people think they


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


killing the former Eastenders actress Sian Blake and her two
