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
