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

:00:00.:00:17.

With me are the broadcaster Penny Smith and Philippa Kennedy

:00:18.:00:24.

Tomorrow's front pages, starting with...

:00:25.:00:39.

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

:00:40.:00:47.

normal before he went on to kill 84 people.

:00:48.:00:48.

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

:00:49.:00:51.

warning that those involved in the military coup will pay

:00:52.:00:54.

President Erdogan's revenge mission against the coup plotters.

:00:55.:01:00.

The Observer also leads with the repercussions

:01:01.:01:02.

for the people involved in the attempted coup.

:01:03.:01:04.

The Mail says Brexit Minister David Davis

:01:05.:01:07.

could send new EU migrants to the UK back home.

:01:08.:01:10.

And the new Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson writes

:01:11.:01:13.

in the Express that the UK can become a global nation

:01:14.:01:16.

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

:01:17.:01:31.

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

:01:32.:01:37.

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

:01:38.:01:45.

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

:01:46.:01:49.

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

:01:50.:01:54.

know so-called Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the

:01:55.:01:58.

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

:01:59.:02:03.

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

:02:04.:02:08.

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

:02:09.:02:13.

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

:02:14.:02:18.

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

:02:19.:02:22.

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

:02:23.:02:31.

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

:02:32.:02:38.

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

:02:39.:02:46.

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

:02:47.:02:51.

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

:02:52.:02:57.

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

:02:58.:03:02.

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

:03:03.:03:06.

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

:03:07.:03:13.

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

:03:14.:03:19.

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

:03:20.:03:24.

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

:03:25.:03:28.

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

:03:29.:03:34.

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

:03:35.:03:39.

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

:03:40.:03:44.

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

:03:45.:03:49.

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

:03:50.:03:56.

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

:03:57.:04:01.

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

:04:02.:04:06.

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

:04:07.:04:11.

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

:04:12.:04:21.

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

:04:22.:04:26.

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

:04:27.:04:31.

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

:04:32.:04:35.

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

:04:36.:04:41.

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

:04:42.:04:45.

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

:04:46.:04:50.

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

:04:51.:04:54.

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

:04:55.:05:00.

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

:05:01.:05:04.

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

:05:05.:05:12.

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

:05:13.:05:18.

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

:05:19.:05:23.

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

:05:24.:05:28.

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

:05:29.:05:33.

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

:05:34.:05:38.

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

:05:39.:05:44.

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

:05:45.:05:54.

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

:05:55.:05:57.

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

:05:58.:06:00.

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

:06:01.:06:05.

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

:06:06.:06:09.

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

:06:10.:06:13.

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

:06:14.:06:26.

Prime Minister, Dallaglio Viren, changing the constitution to allow

:06:27.:06:30.

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

:06:31.:06:35.

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

:06:36.:06:40.

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

:06:41.:06:44.

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

:06:45.:06:50.

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

:06:51.:06:56.

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

:06:57.:07:03.

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

:07:04.:07:10.

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

:07:11.:07:17.

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

:07:18.:07:21.

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

:07:22.:07:27.

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

:07:28.:07:32.

thought the headline was amusing because it could have been a

:07:33.:07:36.

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

:07:37.:07:41.

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

:07:42.:07:47.

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

:07:48.:07:55.

gruesome fascination watching the internal machinations of the Labour

:07:56.:08:00.

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

:08:01.:08:08.

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

:08:09.:08:14.

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

:08:15.:08:22.

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

:08:23.:08:28.

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

:08:29.:08:38.

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

:08:39.:08:42.

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

:08:43.:08:46.

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

:08:47.:08:53.

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

:08:54.:08:57.

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

:08:58.:09:02.

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

:09:03.:09:09.

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

:09:10.:09:13.

disenfranchised by the election of Theresa May as the Tory party

:09:14.:09:20.

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

:09:21.:09:24.

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

:09:25.:09:30.

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

:09:31.:09:34.

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

:09:35.:09:39.

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

:09:40.:09:44.

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

:09:45.:09:48.

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

:09:49.:09:53.

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

:09:54.:09:59.

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

:10:00.:10:05.

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

:10:06.:10:08.

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

:10:09.:10:14.

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

:10:15.:10:20.

Damon Albarn at Glastonbury saying everyone that voted for Brexit was

:10:21.:10:26.

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

:10:27.:10:31.

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

:10:32.:10:35.

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

:10:36.:10:44.

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

:10:45.:10:50.

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

:10:51.:10:54.

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

:10:55.:11:02.

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

:11:03.:11:07.

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

:11:08.:11:11.

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

:11:12.:11:15.

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

:11:16.:11:22.

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

:11:23.:11:25.

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

:11:26.:11:31.

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

:11:32.:11:36.

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

:11:37.:11:41.

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

:11:42.:11:48.

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

:11:49.:11:55.

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

:11:56.:12:01.

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

:12:02.:12:06.

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

:12:07.:12:10.

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

:12:11.:12:17.

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

:12:18.:12:21.

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

:12:22.:12:27.

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

:12:28.:12:33.

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

:12:34.:12:42.

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

:12:43.:12:46.

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

:12:47.:12:52.

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

:12:53.:13:00.

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

:13:01.:13:06.

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

:13:07.:13:09.

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

:13:10.:13:14.

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

:13:15.:13:18.

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

:13:19.:13:22.

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

:13:23.:13:27.

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

:13:28.:13:32.

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

:13:33.:13:37.

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

:13:38.:13:41.

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

:13:42.:13:48.

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

:13:49.:13:53.

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

:13:54.:13:59.

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

:14:00.:14:07.

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

:14:08.:14:13.

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

:14:14.:14:18.

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

:14:19.:14:22.

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

:14:23.:14:27.

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

:14:28.:14:35.

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

:14:36.:14:39.

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

:14:40.:14:45.

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

:14:46.:14:51.

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

:14:52.:14:54.

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

:14:55.:14:59.

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

:15:00.:15:04.

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

:15:05.:15:09.

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

:15:10.:15:16.

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

:15:17.:15:24.

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

:15:25.:15:29.

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

:15:30.:15:33.

Review.
