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

:00:00.:00:00.

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

:00:00.:00:14.

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

:00:15.:00:23.

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

:00:24.:00:26.

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

:00:27.:00:33.

brave officers underscores the danger that police across the

:00:34.:00:37.

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

:00:38.:00:42.

clear that nothing justifies violence against law enforcers. In

:00:43.:00:46.

Turkey 6000 people have been arrested as part of a major

:00:47.:00:51.

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

:00:52.:00:57.

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

:00:58.:01:01.

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

:01:02.:01:06.

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

:01:07.:01:13.

archive Miller. Welcome to our look ahead to what

:01:14.:01:28.

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

:01:29.:01:41.

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

:01:42.:01:48.

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

:01:49.:01:55.

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

:01:56.:02:01.

warning from Theresa May that the threat of nuclear attack has

:02:02.:02:05.

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

:02:06.:02:08.

Turkey with the president threatening to deal with the plot

:02:09.:02:13.

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

:02:14.:02:17.

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

:02:18.:02:23.

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

:02:24.:02:28.

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

:02:29.:02:33.

and the Times course that Turkish crackdown eight presidential power

:02:34.:02:38.

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

:02:39.:02:43.

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

:02:44.:02:49.

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

:02:50.:02:53.

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

:02:54.:02:59.

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

:03:00.:03:04.

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

:03:05.:03:08.

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

:03:09.:03:12.

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

:03:13.:03:22.

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

:03:23.:03:27.

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

:03:28.:03:31.

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

:03:32.:03:41.

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

:03:42.:03:45.

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

:03:46.:03:50.

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

:03:51.:03:56.

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

:03:57.:04:01.

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

:04:02.:04:07.

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

:04:08.:04:12.

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

:04:13.:04:17.

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

:04:18.:04:20.

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

:04:21.:04:28.

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

:04:29.:04:34.

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

:04:35.:04:43.

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

:04:44.:04:50.

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

:04:51.:04:56.

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

:04:57.:05:03.

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

:05:04.:05:08.

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

:05:09.:05:13.

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

:05:14.:05:18.

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

:05:19.:05:31.

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

:05:32.:05:37.

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

:05:38.:05:43.

moderate cleric who is in self-imposed excitement in

:05:44.:05:49.

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

:05:50.:05:55.

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

:05:56.:06:00.

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

:06:01.:06:06.

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

:06:07.:06:15.

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

:06:16.:06:19.

generals have been arrested and there is speculation that the ease

:06:20.:06:23.

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

:06:24.:06:27.

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

:06:28.:06:35.

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

:06:36.:06:39.

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

:06:40.:06:48.

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

:06:49.:06:52.

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

:06:53.:07:00.

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

:07:01.:07:04.

a democratically elected leader and you cannot move against him merely

:07:05.:07:08.

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

:07:09.:07:13.

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

:07:14.:07:20.

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

:07:21.:07:26.

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

:07:27.:07:30.

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

:07:31.:07:43.

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

:07:44.:07:47.

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

:07:48.:07:53.

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

:07:54.:07:58.

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

:07:59.:08:04.

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

:08:05.:08:08.

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

:08:09.:08:15.

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

:08:16.:08:21.

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

:08:22.:08:25.

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

:08:26.:08:30.

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

:08:31.:08:35.

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

:08:36.:08:41.

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

:08:42.:08:49.

earliest Article 50 will be triggered and I make my prediction

:08:50.:08:55.

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

:08:56.:09:00.

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

:09:01.:09:09.

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

:09:10.:09:18.

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

:09:19.:09:23.

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

:09:24.:09:28.

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

:09:29.:09:32.

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

:09:33.:09:38.

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

:09:39.:09:48.

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

:09:49.:09:56.

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

:09:57.:10:03.

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

:10:04.:10:13.

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

:10:14.:10:22.

and greens as Brexit creates a historic opportunity to build an

:10:23.:10:26.

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

:10:27.:10:34.

interesting thing here and the difference between that and here is

:10:35.:10:40.

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

:10:41.:10:45.

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

:10:46.:10:48.

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

:10:49.:10:57.

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

:10:58.:11:04.

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

:11:05.:11:08.

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

:11:09.:11:15.

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

:11:16.:11:21.

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

:11:22.:11:27.

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

:11:28.:11:32.

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

:11:33.:11:38.

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

:11:39.:11:47.

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

:11:48.:11:52.

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

:11:53.:11:57.

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

:11:58.:12:02.

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

:12:03.:12:10.

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

:12:11.:12:15.

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

:12:16.:12:22.

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

:12:23.:12:26.

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

:12:27.:12:30.

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

:12:31.:12:39.

Farren presents himself as an ordinary boat that will make life

:12:40.:12:42.

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

:12:43.:12:49.

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

:12:50.:12:57.

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

:12:58.:13:04.

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

:13:05.:13:10.

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

:13:11.:13:24.

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

:13:25.:13:31.

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

:13:32.:13:35.

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

:13:36.:13:40.

medicine, medical terminology and that once Brexit happens, those

:13:41.:13:44.

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

:13:45.:13:49.

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

:13:50.:13:55.

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

:13:56.:14:00.

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

:14:01.:14:04.

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

:14:05.:14:08.

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

:14:09.:14:18.

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

:14:19.:14:24.

which you were apprenticed in medicine but this is an interesting

:14:25.:14:29.

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

:14:30.:14:34.

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

:14:35.:14:39.

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

:14:40.:14:43.

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

:14:44.:14:52.

because of the regulations not allowing the checks and balances you

:14:53.:14:55.

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

:14:56.:15:01.

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

:15:02.:15:05.

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

:15:06.:15:09.

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

:15:10.:15:17.

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

:15:18.:15:24.

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

:15:25.:15:31.

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

:15:32.:15:32.

coming up next. Augustown, in Kei Miller's

:15:33.:15:40.

novel of that name,
