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


With me are the broadcaster Penny Smith and Philippa Kennedy


Tomorrow's front pages, starting with...


The Mirror leads with Nice, telling his family apparently everything was


normal before he went on to kill 84 people.


The Sunday Times leads with events in Turkey and the President's


warning that those involved in the military coup will pay


President Erdogan's revenge mission against the coup plotters.


The Observer also leads with the repercussions


for the people involved in the attempted coup.


The Mail says Brexit Minister David Davis


could send new EU migrants to the UK back home.


And the new Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson writes


in the Express that the UK can become a global nation


Those are just a touch of what's on the front pages. Penny, let's kick


off with the Sunday Mirror because they focus on the last words of the


Bastille Day killer as they put it. Those words... Everything is normal,


quite a chilling line. They say he rang his brother hours before the


massacre in Nice and even sent a selfie are his last words. As we


know so-called Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the


carnage. It's very difficult. There's a question posed on one of


the other papers, was he connected, was the Nice killer really linked to


ISIS? The thing is, with all the stories we've been hearing about


him, he was a wife beater, a criminal, he didn't pray, he took


drugs, drank and ate pork. And he was very angry, a very angry man.


But he was an angry man. What we do know was that often angry men try to


find an outlet and it will just find the path in their minds of least


resistance. Perhaps he felt this was the only open to him. The fact ISIS


is claiming this is simply because they have been sending out these


messages. They would, wouldn't they? Exactly. The message is if you


haven't got a gun, use stones, knives, whatever you've got. And


they have in the past, putting videos how you can adapt something


for example like a lorry to become a weapon and a killing machine.


Probably he never even went near a mosque and hadn't been radicalised,


just a crazy person. The Sunday Times, so many agonising stories


about victims, those who died, those who narrowly survived, but the


Sunday Times have a story about the agony of a father unable to save his


son. I find these very hard to read, I really find it difficult. The


human stories... I thought there would be more of them in the Sunday


papers, more individual stories. There probably are inside the pages,


this is just the front. This is a little boy called Yanis, jumping


around playing with his friends, having a beautiful evening at the


fireworks. That's the awful ghastliness of it. So many children.


An everyday event and yesterday the papers were full of pictures of


bogeys and small bodies and a goal behind them -- bodies. He was a


four-year-old child, he was playing on the beach, he wanted to stay


longer, they walked essentially into the path of the lorry and he turned


around to see if Yanis was there and he wasn't, he was on the pavement


bleeding and he said he knew then, if only they had allowed him to stay


on the beach. It's when you focus on the individual story that it starts


to hit home. How it relates to you and your life. Moving on to the


Sunday Times... We are on the Sunday Times but their main lead is a


dramatic picture of the attempted coup in Turkey, a brilliant picture,


isn't it? Look at the age of those, young people out on the streets


trying to... This is people power, isn't it, standing up to democracy.


Challenging the coup. They were responding to Erdogan, who had done


his FaceTime via a television journalist holding it for him and he


said get on the streets and fight fire with fire. Even though Erdogan


isn't everyone's idea of the most democratic president in the world.


He isn't. This is the most terrifying thing, the restoring of


democracy in Turkey supposedly... 2800 soldiers arrested, where are


they going to put them all? The judges, 2700 judges sacked just like


that. And journalists as well. Erdogan is using this in a way to


carry out a purge of the military, of the judiciary to strengthen his


position. Indeed. He wants the presidency to be changed. He's been


hampered by that in various areas so perhaps this is a way of him getting


rid of the people stopping him. The Observer have that as their


headline, Turkish leader clamps down after crushing the coup. Again, the


Prime Minister, Dallaglio Viren, changing the constitution to allow


plotters to be executed. -- Binali Yildirim. This is a country that


wants to join the EU, now you see why it has taken so long to get them


ready to join the EU. It was a big issue in the referendum campaign,


whether or not Turkey would join. When you look at the map and you see


where it is bound on each corner, Greece at the bottom, Bulgaria, then


Georgia and Russia so close. It is such a pivotal country. No wonder


the worldly as are backing so-called democracy in the form of Erdogan.


The other thing I was surprised to read was 600,000 in the Army, a huge


army. The biggest army certainly in Europe, 27 divisions? How many have


we got, two or three? I'm married to a soldier, that's why. The Sunday


Telegraph, you like their headline, revenge of the coup plotters. I


thought the headline was amusing because it could have been a


headline on any number of stories, of the political stories. The Tory


leadership or the Labour leadership? We do have a little bit about the


Labour Party tearing itself apart, that was in the Observer. A kind of


gruesome fascination watching the internal machinations of the Labour


Party. They are all turning on Angela Eagle now. The suggestion by


Owen Smith is that there should be just two of them, presumably himself


against Corvin. But she's not having any of it. It's getting very messy.


Very messy -- Corbyn. It is huge relief by the solidarity of Carizza


may's actions. All of a sudden it is looking like the Tories are all done


-- Teresa may. Everything is falling apart and if you do this I will do


this and everyone is saying that -- Theresa May. But are you going to


vote for them if you pay ?25 or if you are one of the ?3 Lot? Speaking


of voting, the Independent online, it's not an actual newspaper any


more, they have given us their front page and they have done an opinion


poll that suggests a lot of people don't want Theresa May to call an


election, or a second referendum. A lot of people seem to feel


disenfranchised by the election of Theresa May as the Tory party


leader. They don't seem to understand this is not the American


system, we don't vote for a guy or a woman, we vote for a party. If the


party changes its leader then that's tough, that's what happens. Don't


you worry now about opinion polls, they haven't been very good for the


last few times. When the opinion poll said 57% rejected demands from


Labour MPs for a second referendum after a Brexit deal, 4 million


people I think signed a petition saying we need a second referendum


because they feel that quite a lot of people went and voted on things


for example like here, ?350 million for the NHS if we're out and


actually that's not true. They're saying quite a lot of people voted


for that and when they found out that wasn't true they said I


wouldn't have voted like that. Then you get some sort of popstar like


Damon Albarn at Glastonbury saying everyone that voted for Brexit was


ill informed. Let's talk about the Mail on Sunday, they have got a


story quoting the Brexit Minister, as he is an officially known, David


Davis, talking about maybe sending home Europeans who come to the UK


just before Brexit, Europeans who tried to beat the border deadline.


He has said he is determined to win a generous settlement from EU


migrants already here. He is quite clearly thinking of the Brits who


are happily ensconced in Tuscany and Spain and places like that. He


doesn't want those countries to kick those people out or make it


difficult for them to live their. Penny, we don't know the form these


negotiations will take. He can say whatever he likes. But unless we


start the process, we can shout and rail and everything, but it's like


somebody shouting in a different room. There are no negotiations,


nothing is happening, and the EU are probably going to cut up quite rough


about this and probably lay down the law. It doesn't matter what he says,


does it was blue in a way I feel the whole story was a desperate attempt


to get away from all the mayhem. For the Daily Mail? Yeah. Do you think


they should be leading on Turkey? I still think Nice is the story.


There's plenty of human stories. We talk about it before, the guy on the


motorcycle, I still want to know what happened to him, the guy that


tried to clamber onto the lorry and stop this from happening. What a


huge act of courage! One report said he had fallen under the wheels, but


when I saw it on it on television he had fallen off away from the lorry.


I don't think that's true. Another paper not talking about even me Gunn


-- Nice or Turkey is the Daily Express, a Boris Johnson exclusive.


The photographs here, is he looking less nuts? When he was first


appointed there were a lot of hanging from the wire photographs.


Also I was thinking of waving a little flag with a crash helmet.


With the two union jacks. On the zip wire, it is like they are trying to


make him look more serious. He's trying to make himself more serious,


he doesn't know what to do with his hands, putting them in his pockets,


then behind his back. Walking into Downing Street it was interesting to


see the body language. His message of the fines on terror and his


promise of trade after Brexit, saying with ready to go global and


we don't have to worry -- defiance. We are respected globally and we are


going to carry on business as usual but with different people. He would


say that, wouldn't he? I'm quite excited about the free ice cream


sundae. Let's finish off with the golf, I know you love your golf,


Philippa, but you're not a fan of Rory McIlroy. He's from where I am


in County Down and he is a huge role model for young people. How old is


he? He's in his twenties. While you talk I will find out. 27. He's 27.


No, that's a 27-year-old from Barnet, that's a different person.


Get on with the story, come on, what has he done? He has broken his club,


he was in such a temper, he hit a bad shot, the same shot he hit on


the 15th he hit on the 16th and he was so crossed that he first through


it and then broke it. Quite a thing to do -- cross. Steel is bendable


and malleable. This is like tennis players smashing their racket? It is


bad and he shouldn't do it. Bad form. Bad form. Golf is the last


bastions of good manners. Isn't it nice to have a bit of emotion and


passion? Not on the golf course. He should have apologised and he should


have apologised straight after his round but he didn't, he said he was


just angry with himself. He should have said he was really sorry. But


nobody got hurt. You don't know that. You've got a whole generation


of young kids that might copy him. A small piece of metal could have


flown off. Fillip and Penny, thank you both so much. Are you playing


golf tomorrow -- fillip. Maybe. That is the papers this hour. -- fillip.


Coming up next for you it is the macro film review. -- The Film
