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

:00:16.:00:17.

With me are James Rampton - feature writer for the Independent,

:00:18.:00:21.

and Caroline Wheeler - political editor for

:00:22.:00:23.

The Observer leads with details of the 18-year-old who shot nine

:00:24.:00:31.

people dead at a Munich shopping centre on Friday night saying,

:00:32.:00:34.

he was a loner who had an obsession with mass murder.

:00:35.:00:38.

Echoed on the front page of the Sunday Telegraph,

:00:39.:00:42.

their headline - Facebook trap of the McDonald's murderer -

:00:43.:00:46.

referencing how the gunman used social media to coax the victims,

:00:47.:00:52.

Low-paid Bangladeshi workers have been reportedly paid 30p an hour

:00:53.:00:58.

to make t-shirts for Jeremy Corbyn's leadership campaign which then

:00:59.:01:00.

Foreign Secretary, Boris Johnson's apparent confidence that the Brexit

:01:01.:01:11.

negotiations will result in the best deal for Britain.

:01:12.:01:14.

We begin with the Observer. The headline here was the Munich killer

:01:15.:01:23.

was bullied loner who had an obsession with mass murder. He had

:01:24.:01:30.

links to Anders Breivik. Five years ago yesterday, to the day, since

:01:31.:01:36.

those shootings were carried out. Absolutely. Symbolism was clearly

:01:37.:01:40.

important this young man. At first, people he must be linked to

:01:41.:01:46.

terrorism because it was such a clear example of the so-called IS

:01:47.:01:54.

and other terrorists like to use but it now emerges he was just a very,

:01:55.:01:59.

very sad psychologically disturbed boy. He was only 18, and he had

:02:00.:02:08.

books called, white kids kill, he even changed his Whatsapp photo of a

:02:09.:02:12.

picture of Anders Breivik, that is how obsessed with mass murder he

:02:13.:02:17.

was. Unfortunately, these people always exist but the terrible thing

:02:18.:02:22.

is he somehow managed to get hold of a gun and I feel so sorry for all

:02:23.:02:27.

these families. Seven of the people killed were teenagers. Such an

:02:28.:02:31.

incredible waste of those young lives. We'll talk more about the

:02:32.:02:40.

victims in a moment. It was a confused picture last night, it

:02:41.:02:45.

created terror for people in Munich but it is interesting that people --

:02:46.:02:52.

the language used. We suspect an act of terror, we are treating it as an

:02:53.:02:56.

act of terror but they stopped short of treating it emphatically as what

:02:57.:03:02.

it was because they then started to talk about this right wing

:03:03.:03:06.

connection. It's very much started to fall into our time, we were

:03:07.:03:12.

looking at this, was this going to be one of those terrible stories

:03:13.:03:17.

will be start seeing IS claiming responsibility. It looked like that

:03:18.:03:23.

was where we were heading. As I was going to bed tonight, I was

:03:24.:03:30.

thinking, it has happened again. But by this morning, the tone and change

:03:31.:03:35.

to little bit. It began to look more like a disturbed teenager. There was

:03:36.:03:39.

discussion here about whether he had a mental illness. Obviously, that is

:03:40.:03:45.

very sad for him but that has led to this devastating tragedy. And there

:03:46.:03:51.

was this link to Anders Breivik, it was on the fifth anniversary, that

:03:52.:03:56.

was being downplayed yesterday, and it is only today that we find he

:03:57.:04:03.

changed his app to this guy's face. He clearly did have a link to this

:04:04.:04:08.

individual. And we wonder whether his family were aware of this, given

:04:09.:04:13.

what was found in his bedroom. That does rather the world me. He lived

:04:14.:04:19.

with his parents and their younger brother and they apparently had no

:04:20.:04:23.

idea of this obsession. It is quite devious and cunning, what he did. He

:04:24.:04:29.

put a face Facebook appeal out there, apparently disguised as a

:04:30.:04:34.

girl, saying, come and meet me in McDonald's this evening, and I will

:04:35.:04:38.

give you something for free, and that was him luring people to their

:04:39.:04:44.

slaughter. Shocking. Yes, the manipulation of it. It is on the

:04:45.:04:52.

front of the Telegraph. He was bullied at school and said messages

:04:53.:04:56.

to teenagers. Living at home with his parents that -- but there is the

:04:57.:05:01.

suggestion he was targeting youngsters of Turkish and Arabic

:05:02.:05:07.

origin because he saw them as the same race as those who had been

:05:08.:05:13.

bullying him at school. As a parent, I hope I would pick up signs of

:05:14.:05:18.

child being distressed or being bullied. But ruthlessly targeting a

:05:19.:05:22.

particular race because healing that with his own experience is too

:05:23.:05:29.

horrible. We have a picture of some people. For friends who died

:05:30.:05:34.

together. And the suggestion was he picked them out because of their

:05:35.:05:42.

ethnic background. Two were Turkish, two were Kosovan. He said when he

:05:43.:05:45.

shouted at that brave man, I've been bullied for seven years. Why didn't

:05:46.:05:52.

his parents take any notice? White didn't they know? And, also, if they

:05:53.:06:00.

had a gun in the house... This sort of obsessive behaviour and fixating

:06:01.:06:05.

on Anders Breivik, you think somebody would have picked it up.

:06:06.:06:10.

And he is dead, too, along with the nine others he killed. And ten

:06:11.:06:14.

people are still in hospital, still being treated. Many of them

:06:15.:06:21.

youngsters. Back to the observable stop senior Corbyn eight accused of

:06:22.:06:27.

illegal entry in two offices. This is about the story of abuse and

:06:28.:06:30.

intimidation within the Labour Party. Someone is saying someone

:06:31.:06:38.

went into her office and their word authorised to do it. The allegation

:06:39.:06:44.

is that someone from John McDonnell's team had gone into her

:06:45.:06:48.

office without her permission. She was one of those who resigned from

:06:49.:06:51.

the Shadow Cabinet and the defence that has been given here is they

:06:52.:06:56.

still didn't realise she was occupying the office because she

:06:57.:07:01.

should have moved out. She is saying that members of the staff in the

:07:02.:07:05.

offices actually felt there really intimidated and were scared to be in

:07:06.:07:09.

this office alone, not knowing who had access to it. I have to say,

:07:10.:07:13.

when you put all the pieces together, it does look fairly nasty.

:07:14.:07:18.

I have had contact with the Labour MP friend of mine this evening whose

:07:19.:07:24.

comment to me was a gentler kind of type of burglary? But also the

:07:25.:07:30.

question is where is this going to end? It seems to be getting nasty

:07:31.:07:38.

and nasty. There doesn't seem to be every investigation carried out yet.

:07:39.:07:43.

There is a breach of parliamentary privilege and breach of

:07:44.:07:47.

confidentiality. These are yet to be investigated and anybody who might

:07:48.:07:51.

end up being implicated in this hasn't had the right to reply. No,

:07:52.:07:57.

that is right and nobody has been named in this piece either. But

:07:58.:08:02.

since 2008 since Damian Green's office has been visited by the

:08:03.:08:06.

police, it has been the convention that you need a search warrant to

:08:07.:08:10.

enter a Parliamentary office without the wishes of that MP. But that

:08:11.:08:16.

plays into the impression that we are getting other scary atmosphere

:08:17.:08:25.

of intimate Asian in the coterie -- intimidation in the coterie

:08:26.:08:29.

surrounding Jeremy Corbyn. Some female MPs have written to him to

:08:30.:08:33.

say that he has not cracked down on that. Angela Eagle had a brick

:08:34.:08:39.

through cloud -- throw through a window. We've got the police now

:08:40.:08:47.

involved in several constituency Labour parties, really serious

:08:48.:08:50.

allegations going God, we have a story in our paper this weekend

:08:51.:08:56.

which shows some of those aids that quit were forced to sign these

:08:57.:09:01.

gagging clauses to stop them reporting bullying. Is this the

:09:02.:09:04.

behaviour we expect from the Labour Party? How low can he go? It says.

:09:05.:09:15.

Corbyn in new slave labour T-shirts, these T-shirts are said to be made

:09:16.:09:22.

in Bangladesh by people who get paid 30p an hour for these T-shirts that

:09:23.:09:26.

cost a tenner. The strength of this story lies in the back that

:09:27.:09:30.

previously, Corbyn has attacked the pay and working conditions faced by

:09:31.:09:35.

clothing workers in Bangladesh and urged consumers to think about

:09:36.:09:41.

buying products made in that country. I know it comes with the

:09:42.:09:47.

caveat that The Mall is pretty naturally disposed to not like

:09:48.:09:55.

Corbyn. I am reminded of a similar story about T-shirts being made in

:09:56.:10:06.

Nicaraguan last year and their wet after her wife -- his wife who was

:10:07.:10:10.

selling fair trade coffee but that had come from poor areas in Mexico

:10:11.:10:15.

and the money was going not to the people. You need to do checks and

:10:16.:10:22.

balances when you are buying these things. Boris says EU will give us

:10:23.:10:27.

what we want. He is confident he is getting the best deal for Britain.

:10:28.:10:33.

What is making soap confident? It has gone on a whistle-stop tour of

:10:34.:10:38.

the world, Brussels, New York, the UN, he was interviewed yesterday

:10:39.:10:42.

about how it was all going, his first ten days on the job, no one

:10:43.:10:47.

was more surprised than him, I suspect, that he became Foreign

:10:48.:10:53.

Secretary. And the answer came, can you get the deal that Britain wants?

:10:54.:10:59.

They cake and eat it, the cake and eat access to the single market and

:11:00.:11:04.

no free movement of people. He thinks the mood has changed and we

:11:05.:11:08.

are all on course for a good deal for Britain. He is the man who said

:11:09.:11:18.

he was pro-cake and pro-eating it. I am suspicious of some of the things

:11:19.:11:22.

Boris Johnson said and I was intrigued that an American

:11:23.:11:26.

journalist this week absolutely now that many of the inconsistencies

:11:27.:11:34.

Boris Johnson has said and I never saw Boris so lost for words until he

:11:35.:11:38.

resorted to lacking, as he always does. A fantastic story, who wrote

:11:39.:11:48.

it? Oh, you did! Tory appealing to the working class. Patrick

:11:49.:11:52.

McLoughlin arguing, the new party chairman, arguing they are not the

:11:53.:11:56.

nasty party, that is not a favourite presentation, but they do need to

:11:57.:12:00.

sort of redefined their image if they are going to reach out to new

:12:01.:12:06.

voters. I am not a Tory voter and I never have been but I am

:12:07.:12:13.

impressed... I'm obviously Ukip! Something that has impressed me

:12:14.:12:18.

about to reason me is she made this very, very bold statement that she

:12:19.:12:21.

was making a break with the so-called Notting Hill set, a lot of

:12:22.:12:25.

the so-called toffs and the former members of the Bullingdon Club were

:12:26.:12:31.

ousted in this very, vicious purge, the day of the Long knives, and she

:12:32.:12:35.

has made the point she was to appeal to people who perhaps in the past

:12:36.:12:38.

might have feared more towards Labour. Patrick McLoughlin, he used

:12:39.:12:45.

to be a minor, I believe. A good person to have other party chairman.

:12:46.:12:49.

Making an appeal to people who would not have necessarily been associated

:12:50.:12:55.

with tourism the past. She is very clever. It's a great interview.

:12:56.:13:03.

Basically, she is going to make a big difference here. What some in

:13:04.:13:08.

her team have been saying that they have only been paying lip service to

:13:09.:13:12.

the working classes and trying to occupy that ground, she is actually

:13:13.:13:16.

going to say now, actually, it is the many, not the privileged few

:13:17.:13:20.

that my policies are going to target. Will it work? The proof will

:13:21.:13:27.

be in the pudding. We will see at confidence -- conference what

:13:28.:13:31.

policies they will have. But she says there is going to be radical

:13:32.:13:40.

social reform part. There's look at some sporting pages. In the Sunday

:13:41.:13:46.

express again, Froome Coast home. It is a good thing he looks good in

:13:47.:13:53.

yellow. He looks fantastic in yellow and he is warned the yellow jersey

:13:54.:13:56.

far more than anyone else this year. I would make the case that he is our

:13:57.:14:02.

greatest athlete at the moment. Only one Britain has ever won the Tour de

:14:03.:14:05.

France before and that was Bradley Wiggins. Why isn't he so Chris

:14:06.:14:13.

Froome? Too well -- he probably will be. Against the most astonishing

:14:14.:14:19.

odds last year, he had year in thrown in his face, he was attacked,

:14:20.:14:27.

yesterday,... I think it was Eno in the 80s he last won it. Impressive

:14:28.:14:35.

knowledge. I don't really get out. What happened yesterday really,

:14:36.:14:40.

really blew me away. About the teamwork of the Froome sky team. He

:14:41.:14:47.

went too fast, went over a painted white lie, slit, had a horrible

:14:48.:14:51.

crash, cut his body and elbow and knee, and stood up, and immediately,

:14:52.:14:57.

one of his team mates turned up and said, here, have my bike. A parable

:14:58.:15:03.

about doing good for your fellow man and Froome went on and increased his

:15:04.:15:11.

lead. I know nothing about it. I am in awe of what it takes to be this

:15:12.:15:18.

fit. I was just saying to you, I am in withdrawal from the withdrawal --

:15:19.:15:22.

the drama we have had in Westminster. It's only been one day?

:15:23.:15:31.

You can get it and catch up. That is it for the papers but we will be

:15:32.:15:41.

back at -- again at 7:30am. Coming up next, it is Reporters.
