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

:00:15.:00:18.

With me are the political correspondent for The Daily

:00:19.:00:21.

Telegraph, Ben Riley-Smith, and the Deputy News Editor

:00:22.:00:23.

Tomorrow's front pages, starting with this.

:00:24.:00:31.

Andrew has been in touch asking for different stories from 1030 and more

:00:32.:00:42.

umph. We will do our best. LAUGHING.

:00:43.:00:43.

The Financial Times leads with the parliamentary report

:00:44.:00:45.

into the sale of BHS, which blames Goldman Sachs

:00:46.:00:47.

for helping the former owner Sir Philip Green to pull

:00:48.:00:50.

The Metro also focuses on that same report into the collapse

:00:51.:00:53.

of the High Street retailer/ The report highlights Sir Philip's

:00:54.:00:56.

role in the sale, saying that his reputation "as the king

:00:57.:00:59.

The i goes for a sport-heavy front page, with the IOC's decision not

:01:00.:01:03.

to impose a blanket ban on Russian athletes at the Rio Olympics.

:01:04.:01:06.

It also pictures cyclist Chris Froome winning his

:01:07.:01:08.

On the BHS report, The Daily Telegraph highlights

:01:09.:01:11.

the MPs' calls for Sir Philip Green to be stripped of his knighthood,

:01:12.:01:14.

unless he pays the company's pension deficit.

:01:15.:01:16.

The Times also has a similar front page leading with the damning report

:01:17.:01:19.

into BHS, as well as with the severe delays at Dover, affecting

:01:20.:01:22.

holidaymakers who want to reach the cross-Channel ferries.

:01:23.:01:24.

Meanwhile, the Guardian also discusses Labour's Leader

:01:25.:01:26.

of the House of Lords withdrawing her support

:01:27.:01:28.

for Jeremy Corbyn, in the forthcoming leadership election.

:01:29.:01:43.

We will begin with a new story we did not have at 1030. We have

:01:44.:01:53.

managed on that score. Umph, chaps. Anger at the EU deal. What is this?

:01:54.:02:01.

If you want more umph, start with the daily press. It has taken the

:02:02.:02:04.

story about the EU negotiations yesterday. It is and EU deal to hold

:02:05.:02:15.

our exit. What is one of many ideas on the table is a seven year

:02:16.:02:24.

emergency brake for migrants. This was discussed before the referendum.

:02:25.:02:28.

It was one of the ideas floated by David Cameron that was never

:02:29.:02:32.

delivered. It was one of the items for discussion. We do not have a

:02:33.:02:37.

deal and it is not halting how exit either. But obviously there is

:02:38.:02:46.

concern it might be seen as a phage. -- fudge. Many said this is not what

:02:47.:02:54.

we voted for. Theresa May says Brexit means Brexit, but no one

:02:55.:03:01.

knows what Brexit is. This will be a problem for Theresa May for a long

:03:02.:03:10.

time. It will be fury from the leavers. No one really knows what is

:03:11.:03:16.

leaving means. But if we don't stop free movement and get total control

:03:17.:03:20.

of our borders we will seem to have sold out on that. That would mean we

:03:21.:03:25.

will definitely leave the single market as it cannot stay in it

:03:26.:03:31.

without free movement. You have a tussle with businesses wanting total

:03:32.:03:33.

access to the free market and those who voted to leave not wanting it.

:03:34.:03:39.

If we get full access to will have to take freedom of movement. If we

:03:40.:03:43.

want to less access we will get more control over migration. That will

:03:44.:03:47.

play out for a few years. Doesn't that show that there is a room for a

:03:48.:03:52.

manoeuvre. That those talks that both sides would be in transient --

:03:53.:04:01.

-- intransigent, well, they cannot be. It was always the case that some

:04:02.:04:05.

sort of deal would emerge eventually. It is horse-trading as

:04:06.:04:10.

to what kind of deal we will get in the end. It is one of those ideas on

:04:11.:04:16.

the table. Anger at EU deal will be repeated on the front page of the

:04:17.:04:21.

Daily Express many times. Were we get there? The Guardian. The NHS

:04:22.:04:31.

torn apart by MPs. Sir Philip Green accused of extracting huge sums of

:04:32.:04:37.

dividends as the Stawell grew weaker and we can. Hundreds of millions of

:04:38.:04:41.

pounds he was taking from the company. -- store. I cannot remember

:04:42.:04:46.

a committee reports this damning on a set of individuals. The

:04:47.:04:50.

unacceptable face of capitalism. They say Dominic Chappell sold it

:04:51.:04:55.

for a quid. He had his hands in the till. He systematically extracted

:04:56.:05:01.

hundreds of millions of pounds from the NHS to the point it would

:05:02.:05:06.

collapse. Philip Green is primarily held responsible. The MPs are

:05:07.:05:12.

putting forward the argument that Philip Green has a long duty to fill

:05:13.:05:17.

the black hole of this pension deficit, ?571 million. The comment

:05:18.:05:23.

from Frank Field said what kind of man is that they can count his

:05:24.:05:26.

fortune in billions but doesn't know what's decent behaviour is. Very

:05:27.:05:31.

cutting. His character has been called into question. The framing of

:05:32.:05:39.

Sir Phillip Greed. Pay up your money or lose your knighthood. Quite an

:05:40.:05:47.

image. That is a lot of cash. A big price. This is where it gets to the

:05:48.:05:53.

middle of it. Those 11,000 people whose jobs are at risk and the tens

:05:54.:05:56.

of thousands that passed through him and worked at the firm will be

:05:57.:06:01.

financially hit by this decision. Their pensions are up in the air.

:06:02.:06:06.

Then you have Sir Philip Green on his second off third yacht in some

:06:07.:06:12.

way tropical topless having a great time. Topless?

:06:13.:06:16.

LAUGHING. He is saying some of this cash will be reinvested. It is a

:06:17.:06:19.

tricky thing. A delivery of his third yacht quite recently. A cool

:06:20.:06:27.

100 million. So... Part of the deficit, that. Let us look at the

:06:28.:06:32.

Times. The those are delays could last weeks. -- the Dover. Another

:06:33.:06:42.

paper is saying the whole summer. It has been rough for the last few days

:06:43.:06:46.

for those tried to get to the Channel. Those thinking of having a

:06:47.:06:56.

straightforward Ma Ying-jeou crossing, well, they were wrong. --

:06:57.:07:04.

Channel crossing. People cooking and sleeping in their cars. Playing

:07:05.:07:10.

sport on the motorway. Aid organisations chipping in water for

:07:11.:07:13.

the people stuck out there. You know how hot it was yesterday. And that

:07:14.:07:21.

was brought out by not a lack of preparation, but far too few staff

:07:22.:07:26.

in France. Is it revengeful Brexit like someone claiming? There is road

:07:27.:07:34.

speculation. -- rogue. A centre-right leader of the Calais

:07:35.:07:36.

region quite often pops up with entertaining quotes when these rows

:07:37.:07:41.

hit the headlines. He says it shows are consequences to Brexit. That is

:07:42.:07:47.

not quite deliberately sabotaging British holidays... It is like

:07:48.:07:53.

trains being cancelled. Exactly. If you don't put the staff on that will

:07:54.:07:59.

happen. The Financial Times. Died in match its record 173 million loss

:08:00.:08:10.

after job cuts. Why is it in such dire straits? Every newspaper can

:08:11.:08:17.

understand the problems. Readers are dropping off. The business model is

:08:18.:08:21.

struggling to adapt to the on line area. Especially after this huge

:08:22.:08:31.

loss, part of their business, a stake in Ascantiel, a magazine

:08:32.:08:35.

company, they have written down that price. They are holding off from

:08:36.:08:41.

doing that. But all the papers are going through tough times

:08:42.:08:45.

financially. It is tough to watch. Many will be in pain reading this. I

:08:46.:08:52.

will say there is a bit of time to solve their finances after selling

:08:53.:08:57.

the auto Trader a few years ago. They have ?750 million in cash. They

:08:58.:09:02.

are not the worst off by any stretch of the imagination but they cannot

:09:03.:09:05.

sustain these losses for a long time. How much of it is down to

:09:06.:09:10.

trying to work out what the new digital model is when it comes to

:09:11.:09:15.

advertising? That is an issue. Advertising has been hit across the

:09:16.:09:20.

board at the moment. So, you know, I am not sure the Guardian has quite

:09:21.:09:23.

got that model right because their on line is free and the guardian

:09:24.:09:29.

newspaper is quite expensive. -- Guardian. It is something everyone

:09:30.:09:34.

is having to deal would. The drop in advertising is hurting many people.

:09:35.:09:37.

This piece cites an ambitious project of opening up offices in

:09:38.:09:42.

Australia and America to create a website free to users. Many question

:09:43.:09:49.

whether that is contributing. Everyone, that's all by newspapers

:09:50.:09:52.

tomorrow. It doesn't matter which, but by a bar. -- let's. -- paper. Or

:09:53.:10:05.

pick one up at the station. That is right. You don't necessarily have to

:10:06.:10:10.

buy one. The Times. Olympic backlash. The backlash after the

:10:11.:10:19.

Olympic chiefs reject a ban on Russia. This person says I can't

:10:20.:10:24.

understand why they haven't been completely banned. They should be

:10:25.:10:29.

out, no exception. That is tough, though, on people who are clean.

:10:30.:10:36.

That is tough. It is partly because the International Olympic Committee,

:10:37.:10:40.

the IOC, the head of them was tasked with this decision. He has been

:10:41.:10:48.

called a copout. He said he will not make a decision on the total state.

:10:49.:10:51.

He will give it to each of the 20 sporting bodies to make a decision.

:10:52.:10:56.

It is another thing to choose to do. 12 days before the Olympic Games

:10:57.:11:02.

open and all of these are bodies have to get their act together.

:11:03.:11:10.

Doping scandals, back history, who was where and when, I think they

:11:11.:11:15.

will have a busy few days to try get busy for the Russians in. Who knows

:11:16.:11:21.

how many will turn up. To get them there. Once they are they would will

:11:22.:11:27.

not be trusting of the results we are seeing. Imagine the 800 metre

:11:28.:11:35.

race with... Well, not an 800 metre race, but a particular sport, a

:11:36.:11:38.

Russian person comes first above a British competitor on the podium.

:11:39.:11:44.

With the track and field, they will be able to go. And what message that

:11:45.:11:50.

this send out to sports men and women? What does this send out to

:11:51.:11:57.

people who are caught doping, considering doping, apparently the

:11:58.:12:03.

message is they will not have a statewide punishment. There must be

:12:04.:12:07.

something going on behind the scenes. They must be under immense

:12:08.:12:12.

pressure from Russia. We are going through a tense time with the

:12:13.:12:18.

Eastern European border between Russia and the West. If you totally

:12:19.:12:23.

ban a country from competing in the greatest spectacle in the world,

:12:24.:12:27.

what does that mean? And sport organisations have not exactly been

:12:28.:12:32.

free from corruption themselves. Cycling, they had to get their acts

:12:33.:12:36.

together. They were riddled with doping allegations for many years,

:12:37.:12:41.

but, here we have a cleaner sport is now. A man who has just defied the

:12:42.:12:53.

odds for the third time. Vava Froome is the headlines. All sorts of

:12:54.:12:57.

accusations from the French, how can you be this brilliant? They have

:12:58.:13:03.

treated him better. Here is clinking glasses, a glass of champagne. I am

:13:04.:13:08.

starting to fall in love with this British Cycling hero. Steady on.

:13:09.:13:13.

Less hate, more love. LAUGHING. It is a terrific

:13:14.:13:23.

achievement. For years, it was seen as a competition where British

:13:24.:13:26.

cyclists did not stand a chance. We have now dominated for the last five

:13:27.:13:31.

years. Those young cyclists following him are doing very well.

:13:32.:13:35.

It confirms how brilliantly we have done. You don't have to be called

:13:36.:13:41.

Andrew to get a tweet read out in the papers. It helps. Andrew says,

:13:42.:13:46.

why didn't you get a three seater bike from the prop department of the

:13:47.:13:52.

BBC to celebrate the tour win? We could have cycled around the studio

:13:53.:13:55.

together. I love that idea. I am probably the only person who

:13:56.:14:01.

understands what that means. I have the physical attributes to bike a

:14:02.:14:06.

3-person bike. I could have helped our. I could have joined in. May be.

:14:07.:14:13.

LAUGHING. Let's not. Not just Chris Froome, we have to mention Mark

:14:14.:14:22.

Cavendish as well. And Yates. A team effort. The first person... Sorry,

:14:23.:14:28.

the first British person to win three. And phenomenal thing to cheer

:14:29.:14:33.

about. Indeed. Already, and we haven't even got to the Olympic

:14:34.:14:41.

Games yet. Ben and Joel, thank you for your umph this hour. Lovely to

:14:42.:14:44.

see you. I hope that met with approval. And coming up next is the

:14:45.:14:47.

film review.
