by heat coming in from the near continent. An area from Birmingham


to London could see 33, 30 four Celsius. Then it turns cooler again.


This is BBC News. We will be taking a look at tomorrow morning's papers


but our headlines. President Obama has condemned the killing of three


officers who were shot dead in Baton Rouge. The death of these three


brave officers underscores the danger that police across the


country confront every single day. We as a nation have to be loud and


clear that nothing justifies violence against law enforcers. In


Turkey 6000 people have been arrested as part of a major


clamp-down in the wake of the failed military coup. Owen Smith launches


his bid for the Labour leadership. Five people had been injured in a


helicopter crash at Britain are drawn in East Yorkshire. And coming


up after the papers we hear from the Jamaican poet and both author


archive Miller. Welcome to our look ahead to what


the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. With us Anne Ashworth and


Mihir Bose. Good to have you here. So much has happened. Let's take a


look at what the front pages are like tonight. The express says the


UK is on course with a quick exit from the EU. The Telegraph carries a


warning from Theresa May that the threat of nuclear attack has


increased. The Guardian leads on the aftermath of the attempted coup in


Turkey with the president threatening to deal with the plot


leaders. The mail says the failed coup in Turkey could scupper the


EU's deal with Turkey over refugees from Syria and could lead to what it


calls a fresh migrant surge. The Metro reports 6000 soldiers, lawyers


and judges have been arrested in the crackdown by the Turkish government


and the Times course that Turkish crackdown eight presidential power


grab and carries the news of three US police officers who have been


shot dead today in Louisiana. We will start with the Daily Mail and


the headline, Turkey, fear of migrant surge. Bloody response to


failed coup could scupper refugee deal with the EU. In recent times


that deal when Turkey was going to be the forefront of trying to stem


the flow of people trying to reach Europe, that had an effect in


Greece. It had stopped the flow of migrants but I think what we are


seeing this evening is how the aftermath of that coup in Turkey has


brought into sharp focus Turkey's role in the politically, economic


security of the West. It seems as if people are beginning to argue that


if there is a clamp-down in Turkey, if President Erdogan moves against


anybody against the military, judges, people who are minded to be


a migrant will be able to say that is a country far too dangerous for


us to be sent back to and be able to travel further up to Europe. That


deal to make sure migrants did not cross the Aegean has been effective


in slowing that tide of humanity. They could be looking for other


routes around Turkey. I think the way the papers have presented this


story is overhyped. It says Turkey, for the migrant story to work, one


would have to say Turkey would collapse. The people that the


president clearly wants to put behind bars are not going to be


migrants. I think the reasonable argument they could put forward that


we can't go back to Turkey, the Turkish situation is more likely to


be an attack on America for holding the coup. This is a good Saturday,


Sunday night story, how can we latch onto Turkey and I think the mail has


overhyped it. It does highlight Turkey's importance. But to go from


that to say just because a coup has taken place, that that will mean the


refugees will be able to claim they can't go back there, Turkey is not


suddenly going to become a failed state. Let's look at what is


happening in Turkey in response to this attempted coup. Here it is in


the khadi Guardian. At ago's allies have to work in bringing 6000 people


in for questioning. Lawyers, judges. The cleric they are talking about, a


moderate cleric who is in self-imposed excitement in


Pennsylvania, he is in favour of Turkey honouring its secular roots,


he was an ally of President cardigan. He was. The President's


speeches have come outside mosques. A very clever use of how he has


always used religion to move Turkey away from this great secular state.


Apart from 6000, The Guardian story says 29 of the country's top


generals have been arrested and there is speculation that the ease


with which this coup was put down, that probably this was engineered by


the President's own men and therefore, there is no proof of


this, he has used that in order to re-establish his power and move


Turkey away from what it has been for over 70 years. There has been


claim and counterclaim. Some say this has come from the government


itself, but this is a democratically elected government. And for the


West, the EU and US, this is a difficult situation because this is


a democratically elected leader and you cannot move against him merely


because you don't like the way they run their government. This is going


to be yet another problem on Obama's plate and on the plate of Mrs May


and other leaders of the EU, exactly how they deal with the clamp-down.


It could be a bloody clamp-down, they have talked of executing some


of the soldiers and the members of the judiciary and blame it on the


former president -- cleric, painting him as behind this coup. We must see


what the President's motives are and how far he wants to take Turkey down


the road away from the sort of liberals society it has been. He


clearly does not believe in that sort of liberal society. Let us move


on to Brexit in another guise. The Daily Express, new plan for a quick


EU exit. This is because according to David Davies, the Brexit


secretary, he has managed to start some trade talks. Australia is


already supposed to be interested, but when they say quick exit


exactly, they are unspecific about the timing because there was talk


that it would be January 2000 and 19. David Davies is a pretty


determined to man but I don't think he can do this within months. David


Davies himself has told Sky News today that early next year, is the


earliest Article 50 will be triggered and I make my prediction


that we will not leave the EU before England has a chance of winning the


World Cup again because 2018 is when the World Cup will take place. But


even if he manages to line up all these trade deals... He won't. He


could be negotiating, he could be talking but he can't triggered them.


You might say to Australia, New Zealand, we would like to do a trade


deal and they would say yes, but the actual substance of the deal can


only be entered into once we have the freedom to do that. All they can


do is have informal talks. Nothing can be drawn up. Sit down, make tea,


make nice but it all hinges on article 50. I like the phrase


cracking pace! They are busy anyway. A lot to be done. Where are we


looking. The Independent. Here it is. The birth of the new centrist


party. Now is the time for a new centre-left party. Talks with Labour


and greens as Brexit creates a historic opportunity to build an


alliance. Back to the days of salad and salad is good for you! But the


interesting thing here and the difference between that and here is


that if a majority of the Labour MPs, 172 voted no confidence in


Corbyn, they could form the official opposition in parliament and get


some of the perks that opposition gets. A nice of this. And that sort


of mantle, that sort of status, the old salad arrangement that we had,


what the problem will be in the country, what happens? Can you get


hold of constituencies, the official party. The Liberal Democrats in the


House of Commons only have eight MPs. It's interesting to find that


the Lib Dems have finally come out, and I would say that if you were a


hugely disaffected Labour MP who does not see any future within your


party, this has got to be a very appealing offer. The only problem is


that they seem to me to be incapable of action. Labour MPs so upset they


don't know which way to turn, but I think that the British vote for


centrist parties, this has been making. They ought to get some


Conservative MPs this time. Do you think there will be defections? We


have a Labour leadership competition on the boil. Assume Corbyn wins


again and you have 172 MPs against him, that's an amazing situation.


This is a man who wins the electoral vote of his party but does not have


any support among his MPs. It hinges on how, whether Farren can make


himself appear to be an anti-politician. We like these


ordinary people who just happen to be in politics. People like Trump.


Farren presents himself as an ordinary boat that will make life


better for us. Who knows where he could go. They don't even mention


the S MP who might have some kind of interest in being on those benches.


Anything is possible these days. The Telegraph, Brexit for health patient


safety. This is Claire Maas, president of the Royal College of


surgeons. How will Brexit make patients safer? What she is saying


is... What she is saying is that at the moment the people who come from


the EU, medical practitioners, they are tested for English but very


colloquial English, but not for the sort of English language use of


medicine, medical terminology and that once Brexit happens, those


tests can be done and we will avoid that sort of situation. Freedom for


the working Time directive which has been, it lies behind the unrest


among junior doctors about the way in which the working Time directive


has changed their training. It's supposed to help with making sure


people don't work too many hours but this assessment is getting in the


wake of on the job, continuous training even for surgeons. It used


to be a member of a collective of your trade. That has not operated by


which you were apprenticed in medicine but this is an interesting


issue. One we did not hear anything about during the whole referendum


campaign. The Royal College of surgeons was neutral and this could


be an explosive issue about patient safety, because what she is implying


is at the moment, EU regulations mean that patients are more at risk


because of the regulations not allowing the checks and balances you


need to make sure that the surgeons are well qualified to handle their


medical work in this country. However, without EU nationals, what


would our health service look like? We have to remember how many Spanish


nurses we have in hospitals and whether we said no more, or how the


health service would founder. And how long this will take. Thank you


very much. Because it's a Sunday night, we will be back again. We


will be back at 11:30pm. See you in a little while. Meet The Author


coming up next. Augustown, in Kei Miller's


novel of that name,
