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

:00:17.:00:19.

With me are Colleen Graffy, a former US State Department

:00:20.:00:22.

official and now law professor, and Jason Beattie,

:00:23.:00:24.

Let's have a look at tomorrow's front pages.

:00:25.:00:27.

TheFinancial Times leads with an HSBC trader charged

:00:28.:00:40.

The Guardian saying that the investigation into payment of

:00:41.:00:47.

workers at Sports Direct is being expanded.

:00:48.:00:47.

The Financial Times leads with an HSBC trader charged

:00:48.:00:49.

The Metro reports that scientists have found a way

:00:50.:00:53.

The Express says the Bank of England is claiming the British

:00:54.:00:57.

economy is "booming", after the vote to leave

:00:58.:00:58.

The Telegraph leads with the same story, along with German Chancellor

:00:59.:01:02.

Angela Merkel's warning that the UK should not hurry the Brexit process.

:01:03.:01:05.

The Times reports that Theresa May will delay the talks for leaving

:01:06.:01:08.

The male leads on the banker charged with fraud in New York reporting the

:01:09.:01:22.

amount involved is over two and a half billion pounds. That's begin.

:01:23.:01:26.

Let's kick off at the Financial Times. It has Angela Merkel and

:01:27.:01:34.

Theresa May at the first meeting between the two leaders, the two

:01:35.:01:38.

women. They made reference to that in the news conference. Some nice

:01:39.:01:42.

pictures of the both of them unsurprising they hadn't met for,

:01:43.:01:47.

they have a lot in common, they are both long married, both daughters of

:01:48.:01:53.

clergyman, I think Theresa May speaks some Germans which is

:01:54.:01:58.

wonderful and Theresa May gave Angela Merkel some guides for

:01:59.:02:04.

Snowdonia and the Lake District and they are both avid hikers. That is

:02:05.:02:10.

important that they have this compatibility and personal regard

:02:11.:02:14.

for one another. And that spills over into some of the negotiations

:02:15.:02:19.

which is that Angela Merkel has clearly said, take it slow, no rush,

:02:20.:02:23.

no need to rush which I think she probably is welcoming. This was

:02:24.:02:29.

characteristically like Angela Merkel, I've seen her do this

:02:30.:02:35.

before, she can be extraordinarily equivocal in everything she says,

:02:36.:02:38.

take your time, but... Don't leave that to long. From tomorrow, Theresa

:02:39.:02:45.

May goes to France to Francois Hollande, he will be slightly more

:02:46.:02:50.

direct and say we want you to get on with that, Angela Merkel does this,

:02:51.:02:56.

she played Cameron, trying to get the negotiations, showing him a

:02:57.:02:59.

little bit of space and just as he thought he got to the door she

:03:00.:03:02.

slammed it shut, she is a difficult customer, I don't think I should be

:03:03.:03:08.

to harden. But it was an important meeting because this was Theresa

:03:09.:03:15.

May's first trip abroad. For all new leaders, when we get the new

:03:16.:03:18.

President in November, the first foreign trip, it speaks volumes

:03:19.:03:23.

about their priorities on the international stage... It was a key

:03:24.:03:27.

meeting and also her first visit with an international... Do you

:03:28.:03:34.

think she looks statesman-like? Absolutely, great picture, thought

:03:35.:03:40.

she looked great, they are also very much down-to-earth, result

:03:41.:03:42.

orientated women and I think they will get along famously. The Times

:03:43.:03:47.

saying post Brexit, the Bank of England reporting no Brexit slump.

:03:48.:03:53.

Dismiss as usual, says the Times. It has a picture of the leaders in

:03:54.:04:02.

Berlin. It is notable that all the pro-Brexit papers have gone bigger

:04:03.:04:05.

than us, they will want to prove themselves right and prove the doom

:04:06.:04:09.

mongers wrong. Some people would say this is... Didn't the Times come out

:04:10.:04:17.

for a main, in the end? We were looking at the express and the

:04:18.:04:20.

Telegraph... This is partly how people thought it would layout, the

:04:21.:04:26.

pain does not start until we start looking at the negotiations in

:04:27.:04:29.

detail. We trigger article 50 and then we see what sort of trade deals

:04:30.:04:34.

we can get. If those trade deals are not satisfactory, anyway punitive to

:04:35.:04:39.

Britain or we end up being under World Trade Organisation rules venue

:04:40.:04:41.

was taught to see the damage to the economy, possibly. We were told the

:04:42.:04:51.

damage would be done immediately... The pound has rallied, the housing

:04:52.:04:55.

market more resilient than they feared, there is notice about

:04:56.:04:59.

unemployment fallen to 4.9%, the lowest in a decade. This is pretty

:05:00.:05:06.

impressive and for Hammond to go in with this in his back pocket is

:05:07.:05:09.

pretty good. What we need is for Liam Fox to come up with the trade

:05:10.:05:15.

deal and if they can get trade deals in the works as soon as possible,

:05:16.:05:19.

that would be very good but... The figure from the Treasury said we

:05:20.:05:27.

would be worse off by ?4300 every household by 2030, that's the

:05:28.:05:31.

important thing to remember. We have to wait to 2030! Quite a long way

:05:32.:05:38.

off but let's talk about the independent online. They have taken

:05:39.:05:44.

Theresa May... Cruel picture, come on! A lot of commentators said she

:05:45.:05:50.

sounded like Maggie Thatcher. Why would you go with a picture like

:05:51.:05:55.

that? A grotesque image of the ghost of Thatcher... Spitting blood. I

:05:56.:06:02.

think Theresa May did a good performance today, helped by quite a

:06:03.:06:05.

weak performance... Her first PMQs... There was this one moment

:06:06.:06:11.

when we watched it on screen and she leaned forward and her voice lowered

:06:12.:06:16.

and she said... Remind you of anybody? And the whole of us went...

:06:17.:06:21.

Thatcher! It was chilling, she is back. She has not been like Thatcher

:06:22.:06:29.

so far... Absolutely. I can see why the cartoonist would exaggerate it.

:06:30.:06:35.

Quite a clever front page, isn't it? Remind you of anybody and has

:06:36.:06:38.

something looking like... But that is just grotesque... They could have

:06:39.:06:42.

done it a little nicer, you know where they stand. Cartoonists aren't

:06:43.:06:48.

usually very nice. While we are on politics let's talk about the

:06:49.:06:51.

Guardian... The whole Labour Party fight for the leadership. Owen Smith

:06:52.:06:56.

and Jeremy Corbyn and the Guardian says nobody quite knows what

:06:57.:07:01.

activists all their actually think about Jeremy Corbyn, all of these

:07:02.:07:04.

reports that perhaps they have gone off on a little and the reports that

:07:05.:07:10.

they are cooling on him. Then they say party officers report he remains

:07:11.:07:15.

ahead and is likely to win which is stunning with the view that most

:07:16.:07:19.

people take of him, but I don't want to intrude on your private grief...

:07:20.:07:26.

But... If Corbyn wins again, this will be disaster for the Labour

:07:27.:07:31.

Party. But it doesn't look like people really understand or no Owen

:07:32.:07:34.

Smith, they haven't gotten enough about him... He has a bit of time to

:07:35.:07:39.

make his pitch, Jason? You could come through, could he conceivably

:07:40.:07:45.

be to Jeremy Corbyn? I think there's an outside chance but I wouldn't put

:07:46.:07:50.

it stronger than that. We talked a lot to Labour MPs about this and

:07:51.:07:53.

they said long-standing members, a lot of them who voted for Corbyn

:07:54.:07:58.

last year, they started to come back and they are turning their back on

:07:59.:08:02.

him, the problem they have is these new registered supporters... And

:08:03.:08:07.

there's been a surge in the last 48 hours. 180,000, staggering, they

:08:08.:08:13.

think the majority of those for Corbyn, there was a parallel

:08:14.:08:16.

campaign called saving labour, trying get the moderates to get them

:08:17.:08:23.

to sign up as well. But the power Corbyn house to motivate and

:08:24.:08:26.

mobilise his activists and has better use of social media suggests

:08:27.:08:30.

the majority are supporters. And then the problem is they then seem

:08:31.:08:34.

to be like sleepers, they sign up, they don't do much activism, much of

:08:35.:08:40.

doorknocking except they wake themselves up when they need to save

:08:41.:08:46.

Corbyn in the leadership contest. You have this appalling, very

:08:47.:08:49.

depressing division between the Parliamentary party and its elected

:08:50.:08:55.

base. Also, he did superbly with remaining Europe, even if some

:08:56.:08:59.

people tended to like Jeremy Corbyn, the fact that he really did not

:09:00.:09:03.

think to try and promote the remain and I think a lot of people hold him

:09:04.:09:07.

is possible for that. Do the party activists hold him the sponsor book?

:09:08.:09:17.

-- hold him responsible? Jason, do you think you'll win? At the moment,

:09:18.:09:21.

given the avalanche of numbers coming in I think he is the firm

:09:22.:09:26.

favourite. I think Owen Smith is charismatic, a very genial guy, on

:09:27.:09:29.

the left of the party, but I think his supporters say it will be tough.

:09:30.:09:35.

I will put you on the spot and dusky by Donald Trump, will he win the

:09:36.:09:40.

White House? The New York Times has a picture of his children as the

:09:41.:09:44.

Republican nomination. I would like to adopt the comment of Kissinger

:09:45.:09:52.

that he made about the Iran Iraq war both can't lose. That is the way I

:09:53.:09:59.

would look at it. Donald Trump... It is like Corbyn, he has captured the

:10:00.:10:03.

Republican channel but many Republicans don't feel he is a

:10:04.:10:06.

Republican or Conservative. But, the people have spoken and it looks like

:10:07.:10:12.

he will be the nominee. Has he got a chance of beating Hillary Clinton?

:10:13.:10:16.

He has a chance of winning but the international New York Times

:10:17.:10:19.

coverage talks about the support from black Republicans and blacks

:10:20.:10:24.

where we look at last time, President Obama had 95% of the black

:10:25.:10:31.

vote, Mitt Romney had 5%, Donald Trump is pulling at 0%, similarly

:10:32.:10:35.

with Hispanics and women, the demographics don't allow someone to

:10:36.:10:42.

be elected President with just one demographic group so how he's going

:10:43.:10:47.

to win with those polling numbers, things could change, he has been is

:10:48.:10:50.

a prize candidate but... It is going to be tough. OK, Jason, the same

:10:51.:10:57.

paper has a story about Turkey and of course that extraordinary

:10:58.:11:00.

aftermath to the failed coup attempt in Turkey which is this huge

:11:01.:11:05.

crackdown, this purge by President Erdogan. In the last couple of hours

:11:06.:11:12.

he declared a state of emergency and he has come purge his state of

:11:13.:11:15.

emergency to the one Francois Hollande implemented in France after

:11:16.:11:19.

the Bataclan attacks, I think it will be different, this will be more

:11:20.:11:25.

trick only on. And it is because of the strategic importance of Turkey.

:11:26.:11:34.

-- it will be more trick only on. The West is the ball work in the

:11:35.:11:38.

edge of the Middle East, it's so important. And suddenly, the New

:11:39.:11:49.

York Times story he once the... Extradited. At what point does

:11:50.:11:56.

Turkey become not a democracy any more, when you have this huge purge

:11:57.:12:00.

and people being kicked out of their jobs? Tens of thousands? It's been

:12:01.:12:05.

frustrating for the United States because we want a strong, robust

:12:06.:12:11.

accreditation in Turkey, they are an important ally in an important place

:12:12.:12:14.

but Turkey keeps asking for the extradition of this cleric but they

:12:15.:12:20.

have not handed over evidence and there is concern, initially, he was

:12:21.:12:25.

a good body of Erdogan and they were both very pro-democratic, interfaith

:12:26.:12:28.

dialogue on these important things but what has happened is that there

:12:29.:12:32.

is a view that there has been some... When Cameron said during the

:12:33.:12:37.

EU referendum campaign that turkey's members above the EU wouldn't happen

:12:38.:12:41.

I think he's been proved right. Just if you seconds to talk about the

:12:42.:12:48.

Sun, really important news, Sam Allardyce... A terrible pun on the

:12:49.:12:52.

front page. They think it's all over... I don't want to knock a

:12:53.:12:58.

rival to much but the Sun is usually pretty good at these headlines, it

:12:59.:13:03.

may have let itself down, whether England has let itself down by

:13:04.:13:07.

appointing big Sam, I am it. Is he the man? Never won a major trophy,

:13:08.:13:13.

the highlight he got Notts County promoted, he has done quite well,

:13:14.:13:17.

saving Sunderland last season. But it's a big step up. Is he the man to

:13:18.:13:24.

win England World Cup? Well... He's not as cute as Jose Mourinho, I just

:13:25.:13:30.

want to make that point. At least he is from this country so that's a

:13:31.:13:34.

start. A step in the right direction, not that it matters, but

:13:35.:13:40.

that is a change. Not as cute as Jose Mourinho row! OK... LAUGHTER

:13:41.:13:44.

thank you both very much. The weather is coming up and then the

:13:45.:13:46.

headlines. Good evening. Thankfully things

:13:47.:14:03.

quieting down for the second part of the evening, frequent thunderstorms

:14:04.:14:06.

across Scotland and then England earlier, some

:14:07.:14:07.
