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

:00:20.:00:22.

With me are Steve Richards, the political commentator

:00:23.:00:25.

and broadcaster, and Martin Bentham, Home Affairs Editor

:00:26.:00:27.

Thank you for being with us. We want to die then because there has been a

:00:28.:00:42.

lot of news. In the Telegraph tucked away is the story about Jeremy

:00:43.:00:45.

Corbyn being heckled by his own side. As we've just heard, the

:00:46.:00:54.

Trident vote has been carried. It's sort that the vote was carried by

:00:55.:01:02.

politics. Yes. I'm recording a radio series about Corbyn's first year and

:01:03.:01:05.

it was interesting recording it because in a way the schism with his

:01:06.:01:12.

MPs began over Trident. The very first Labour Party conference last

:01:13.:01:15.

September when he was interviewed about whether he would ever present

:01:16.:01:19.

the nuclear button and he said he never would. His defence spokeswoman

:01:20.:01:25.

said this is not the way to lead a Labour Party. He had only been a

:01:26.:01:29.

leader for about a week and here we are a few months on with the second

:01:30.:01:33.

leadership contest happening, and this Commons later night. In a way

:01:34.:01:37.

it is one of those things that happens in politics. I den bring

:01:38.:01:42.

Corbyn for not changing his mind. He has always helped these views. He

:01:43.:01:47.

said in the leadership campaign he would stick with this, but he has a

:01:48.:01:51.

Parliamentary Labour Party where many MPs have support for the

:01:52.:01:55.

opposite way and it is just Labour splitting from this. It is a mess.

:01:56.:02:02.

There were three positions. Abstention, voting against and

:02:03.:02:06.

voting with. It is one of those things where it is a consequence of

:02:07.:02:10.

what happens when he was elected leader, but where there is no

:02:11.:02:12.

obvious escape route, in other words it would completely undermine him,

:02:13.:02:19.

Corbyn, to announce he did not believe what he has been talking

:02:20.:02:23.

about in the last 40, 50 years of his political life. If he doesn't,

:02:24.:02:32.

there will be a schism. This coming on the night of hustings to try and

:02:33.:02:38.

find that so-called unity candidate to stand against Jeremy Corbyn,

:02:39.:02:44.

potentially. As Steve said, it highlights the split in the party.

:02:45.:02:51.

Corbyn is perhaps in June with the majority of his members still, which

:02:52.:02:57.

is the challenge for Angela Eagle and the wind Smith who are trying to

:02:58.:03:07.

find ways to unseat him. -- Owen Smith. Whoever comes forward, the

:03:08.:03:18.

big challenges see whether they can do the -- defeat Corbyn in the vote.

:03:19.:03:22.

They had better be good. They need to produce some pretty special. That

:03:23.:03:27.

is part of the problem. We shall see. Martin, move of one. Execute

:03:28.:03:36.

and you are out. This is the message from the states and international

:03:37.:03:45.

community as a whole to Turkey. The Turkish president in response to

:03:46.:03:50.

this failed coup, as well as arresting an enormous number of

:03:51.:03:55.

people and suspending officials, he's suggesting he might restore the

:03:56.:04:00.

death penalty. Whether he would is another matter, but the European

:04:01.:04:03.

Union has a policy that all its members cannot have the death

:04:04.:04:07.

penalty. This headline refers explicitly to that. The foreign

:04:08.:04:14.

affairs spokesperson says if you do that, that is the end of your route

:04:15.:04:20.

into the EU. The Germans have said the same. Lots of developments

:04:21.:04:27.

continuing in this attempted coup and a lot of concern from the

:04:28.:04:34.

American and European side to the extent of this perch he is having.

:04:35.:04:39.

From the outside it does seem as though he may be using this as an

:04:40.:04:42.

excuse to round up anyone he doesn't like. Isn't it interesting in the

:04:43.:04:49.

context of that now distant EU referendum debate which now seems

:04:50.:04:54.

like ancient history, one of the arguments was, don't carry on with

:04:55.:05:01.

the EU, Turkey is about to join. At least the EU has some bargaining

:05:02.:05:04.

power by saying if you carry on like this you won't get what you want,

:05:05.:05:10.

which is to be part of the EU. Britain out of it has no bargaining

:05:11.:05:14.

power at all. They have because Turkey still wants to be part of the

:05:15.:05:19.

EU. Onto the sports pages of the Guardian. Sorry, you are having to

:05:20.:05:26.

share. This is all very collegiate! Times are hard! This is the story of

:05:27.:05:34.

Russia's state-sponsored drugs programme and the fact that Putin

:05:35.:05:39.

has responded by saying maybe they will be split in the Olympic

:05:40.:05:43.

movement. What I find staggering about this story is just the scale

:05:44.:05:49.

of it, if it is proven to be the case. Government security services,

:05:50.:06:02.

hiding widespread doping. It is astonishing if it has been carried

:06:03.:06:09.

out on that scale. You asked the question, is it worth all that? What

:06:10.:06:17.

will happen? If it is on that scale and Putin warns of this blitz, when

:06:18.:06:21.

you throw in all the other compost above things going on at the moment,

:06:22.:06:28.

to have this admittedly on the front page of the sport section of the

:06:29.:06:31.

Guardian, it is a pretty explosive story. It was comprehensively

:06:32.:06:38.

organise. There were drilling holes in the walls to seize the containers

:06:39.:06:43.

with the positive sample so they could reopen them and put back clean

:06:44.:06:47.

samples. It was very highly organised and the reason it was

:06:48.:06:52.

worth it to the Russians, particularly in such you where they

:06:53.:07:02.

came out as the top medal winners, Putin is obsessed with his country's

:07:03.:07:09.

national prestige. And the Olympics of political. Football and politics

:07:10.:07:16.

interconnect, but this is huge. This connects with Putin, the future of

:07:17.:07:24.

Russia, international diplomacy. It seems the athletes already banned

:07:25.:07:30.

from the Olympics and it's whether it's extended to the rest of the

:07:31.:07:36.

Russian team. The track and field people have already gone. It will

:07:37.:07:39.

have to happen otherwise it will destroy all readability. Some are

:07:40.:07:48.

competing under the Olympic flag. Very complicated. We will finish

:07:49.:07:51.

with the Financial Times. Two stories. Take as with the top one.

:07:52.:08:04.

Thousands on the promenade in Nice. Minutes silence for those who died.

:08:05.:08:08.

The focus though was on the Prime Minister. There was a great response

:08:09.:08:14.

to the emergency workers and a negative response to the French

:08:15.:08:18.

Prime Minister. I was in France last week before this happened. Even then

:08:19.:08:25.

people were saying there needs to be a stronger response to the problem

:08:26.:08:32.

of extremism. This is accentuated it and despite the state of emergency,

:08:33.:08:39.

they are having these large-scale attacks and they cannot get to grips

:08:40.:08:43.

with the terrible problems affecting them. It is a massive political

:08:44.:08:48.

problem for the French authority and a terrible event that is been

:08:49.:08:52.

marked. It is unfair to blame elected politicians. I know they are

:08:53.:08:59.

ultimately responsible. There has been criticism of the French

:09:00.:09:04.

security services. I am not an expert on security, but it seems

:09:05.:09:09.

difficult to stop something that happened in Nice we have this loner

:09:10.:09:16.

in a truck. We took about how the Olympics become political, this

:09:17.:09:22.

clearly does with the French presidential elections next year.

:09:23.:09:27.

People, various people, marine Le Pen coming in from the right, she is

:09:28.:09:34.

going to make this a key issue. I think it is unfair to blame them,

:09:35.:09:39.

but they need to get their act together pretty quickly. I can see

:09:40.:09:45.

you want to come in, but time is tight. My thanks to you both. Before

:09:46.:09:53.

we go, an update on that news out of Germany concerning the man who had

:09:54.:10:02.

attacked a number of people on the train in Wurzbueg. We are now

:10:03.:10:03.
