Hello, and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will be
With me are the political correspondent for The Daily
Telegraph, Ben Riley-Smith, and the Deputy News Editor
Tomorrow's front pages, starting with this.
Andrew has been in touch asking for different stories from 1030 and more
umph. We will do our best. LAUGHING.
The Financial Times leads with the parliamentary report
into the sale of BHS, which blames Goldman Sachs
for helping the former owner Sir Philip Green to pull
The Metro also focuses on that same report into the collapse
of the High Street retailer/ The report highlights Sir Philip's
role in the sale, saying that his reputation "as the king
The i goes for a sport-heavy front page, with the IOC's decision not
to impose a blanket ban on Russian athletes at the Rio Olympics.
It also pictures cyclist Chris Froome winning his
On the BHS report, The Daily Telegraph highlights
the MPs' calls for Sir Philip Green to be stripped of his knighthood,
unless he pays the company's pension deficit.
The Times also has a similar front page leading with the damning report
into BHS, as well as with the severe delays at Dover, affecting
holidaymakers who want to reach the cross-Channel ferries.
Meanwhile, the Guardian also discusses Labour's Leader
of the House of Lords withdrawing her support
for Jeremy Corbyn, in the forthcoming leadership election.
We will begin with a new story we did not have at 1030. We have
managed on that score. Umph, chaps. Anger at the EU deal. What is this?
If you want more umph, start with the daily press. It has taken the
story about the EU negotiations yesterday. It is and EU deal to hold
our exit. What is one of many ideas on the table is a seven year
emergency brake for migrants. This was discussed before the referendum.
It was one of the ideas floated by David Cameron that was never
delivered. It was one of the items for discussion. We do not have a
deal and it is not halting how exit either. But obviously there is
concern it might be seen as a phage. -- fudge. Many said this is not what
we voted for. Theresa May says Brexit means Brexit, but no one
knows what Brexit is. This will be a problem for Theresa May for a long
time. It will be fury from the leavers. No one really knows what is
leaving means. But if we don't stop free movement and get total control
of our borders we will seem to have sold out on that. That would mean we
will definitely leave the single market as it cannot stay in it
without free movement. You have a tussle with businesses wanting total
access to the free market and those who voted to leave not wanting it.
If we get full access to will have to take freedom of movement. If we
want to less access we will get more control over migration. That will
play out for a few years. Doesn't that show that there is a room for a
manoeuvre. That those talks that both sides would be in transient --
-- intransigent, well, they cannot be. It was always the case that some
sort of deal would emerge eventually. It is horse-trading as
to what kind of deal we will get in the end. It is one of those ideas on
the table. Anger at EU deal will be repeated on the front page of the
Daily Express many times. Were we get there? The Guardian. The NHS
torn apart by MPs. Sir Philip Green accused of extracting huge sums of
dividends as the Stawell grew weaker and we can. Hundreds of millions of
pounds he was taking from the company. -- store. I cannot remember
a committee reports this damning on a set of individuals. The
unacceptable face of capitalism. They say Dominic Chappell sold it
for a quid. He had his hands in the till. He systematically extracted
hundreds of millions of pounds from the NHS to the point it would
collapse. Philip Green is primarily held responsible. The MPs are
putting forward the argument that Philip Green has a long duty to fill
the black hole of this pension deficit, ?571 million. The comment
from Frank Field said what kind of man is that they can count his
fortune in billions but doesn't know what's decent behaviour is. Very
cutting. His character has been called into question. The framing of
Sir Phillip Greed. Pay up your money or lose your knighthood. Quite an
image. That is a lot of cash. A big price. This is where it gets to the
middle of it. Those 11,000 people whose jobs are at risk and the tens
of thousands that passed through him and worked at the firm will be
financially hit by this decision. Their pensions are up in the air.
Then you have Sir Philip Green on his second off third yacht in some
way tropical topless having a great time. Topless?
LAUGHING. He is saying some of this cash will be reinvested. It is a
tricky thing. A delivery of his third yacht quite recently. A cool
100 million. So... Part of the deficit, that. Let us look at the
Times. The those are delays could last weeks. -- the Dover. Another
paper is saying the whole summer. It has been rough for the last few days
for those tried to get to the Channel. Those thinking of having a
straightforward Ma Ying-jeou crossing, well, they were wrong. --
Channel crossing. People cooking and sleeping in their cars. Playing
sport on the motorway. Aid organisations chipping in water for
the people stuck out there. You know how hot it was yesterday. And that
was brought out by not a lack of preparation, but far too few staff
in France. Is it revengeful Brexit like someone claiming? There is road
speculation. -- rogue. A centre-right leader of the Calais
region quite often pops up with entertaining quotes when these rows
hit the headlines. He says it shows are consequences to Brexit. That is
not quite deliberately sabotaging British holidays... It is like
trains being cancelled. Exactly. If you don't put the staff on that will
happen. The Financial Times. Died in match its record 173 million loss
after job cuts. Why is it in such dire straits? Every newspaper can
understand the problems. Readers are dropping off. The business model is
struggling to adapt to the on line area. Especially after this huge
loss, part of their business, a stake in Ascantiel, a magazine
company, they have written down that price. They are holding off from
doing that. But all the papers are going through tough times
financially. It is tough to watch. Many will be in pain reading this. I
will say there is a bit of time to solve their finances after selling
the auto Trader a few years ago. They have ?750 million in cash. They
are not the worst off by any stretch of the imagination but they cannot
sustain these losses for a long time. How much of it is down to
trying to work out what the new digital model is when it comes to
advertising? That is an issue. Advertising has been hit across the
board at the moment. So, you know, I am not sure the Guardian has quite
got that model right because their on line is free and the guardian
newspaper is quite expensive. -- Guardian. It is something everyone
is having to deal would. The drop in advertising is hurting many people.
This piece cites an ambitious project of opening up offices in
Australia and America to create a website free to users. Many question
whether that is contributing. Everyone, that's all by newspapers
tomorrow. It doesn't matter which, but by a bar. -- let's. -- paper. Or
pick one up at the station. That is right. You don't necessarily have to
buy one. The Times. Olympic backlash. The backlash after the
Olympic chiefs reject a ban on Russia. This person says I can't
understand why they haven't been completely banned. They should be
out, no exception. That is tough, though, on people who are clean.
That is tough. It is partly because the International Olympic Committee,
the IOC, the head of them was tasked with this decision. He has been
called a copout. He said he will not make a decision on the total state.
He will give it to each of the 20 sporting bodies to make a decision.
It is another thing to choose to do. 12 days before the Olympic Games
open and all of these are bodies have to get their act together.
Doping scandals, back history, who was where and when, I think they
will have a busy few days to try get busy for the Russians in. Who knows
how many will turn up. To get them there. Once they are they would will
not be trusting of the results we are seeing. Imagine the 800 metre
race with... Well, not an 800 metre race, but a particular sport, a
Russian person comes first above a British competitor on the podium.
With the track and field, they will be able to go. And what message that
this send out to sports men and women? What does this send out to
people who are caught doping, considering doping, apparently the
message is they will not have a statewide punishment. There must be
something going on behind the scenes. They must be under immense
pressure from Russia. We are going through a tense time with the
Eastern European border between Russia and the West. If you totally
ban a country from competing in the greatest spectacle in the world,
what does that mean? And sport organisations have not exactly been
free from corruption themselves. Cycling, they had to get their acts
together. They were riddled with doping allegations for many years,
but, here we have a cleaner sport is now. A man who has just defied the
odds for the third time. Vava Froome is the headlines. All sorts of
accusations from the French, how can you be this brilliant? They have
treated him better. Here is clinking glasses, a glass of champagne. I am
starting to fall in love with this British Cycling hero. Steady on.
Less hate, more love. LAUGHING. It is a terrific
achievement. For years, it was seen as a competition where British
cyclists did not stand a chance. We have now dominated for the last five
years. Those young cyclists following him are doing very well.
It confirms how brilliantly we have done. You don't have to be called
Andrew to get a tweet read out in the papers. It helps. Andrew says,
why didn't you get a three seater bike from the prop department of the
BBC to celebrate the tour win? We could have cycled around the studio
together. I love that idea. I am probably the only person who
understands what that means. I have the physical attributes to bike a
3-person bike. I could have helped our. I could have joined in. May be.
LAUGHING. Let's not. Not just Chris Froome, we have to mention Mark
Cavendish as well. And Yates. A team effort. The first person... Sorry,
the first British person to win three. And phenomenal thing to cheer
about. Indeed. Already, and we haven't even got to the Olympic
Games yet. Ben and Joel, thank you for your umph this hour. Lovely to
see you. I hope that met with approval. And coming up next is the
