website, that is all from Sportsday for the moment, coming up, in a


moment, the Papers. STUDIO: Hello and welcome


to our look ahead to what the the papers will be


bringing us tomorrow. With me are Claire Cohen,


Womens Editor at the Telegraph and Charlie Wells, European Features


reporter at the Wall Street Journal. The FT says the prime minister


is coming under increasing pressure to pull out of the EU customs union


in the wake of Brexit before she begins negotiations


on leaving the EU. The Metro has


more on today's church attack in Normandy,


including a picture of one of the suspected killers


when he was 14 years old. The Express carries


another warning about a fresh influx of migrants wanting to claim


permanent residence in the UK is dominated by a picture


of the French Catholic priest murdered by two terrorists


apparently linked to Islamic State. Churches in Britain have been put on


terror attack after the attack, according to the Daily Mail.


The Guardian also leads on today's attack in France,


but also has Michelle Obama moving the Democratic Party's convention


A YouGov poll which puts the Conservatives 12


and claims two and a half million people who voted Labour at the last


election prefer Theresa May to Jeremy Corbyn as Prime Minister,


And the Mirror splashes with the kidnapping


in Brazil of Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone's mother-in-law.


Let's begin, another day, another awful tragedy, and atrocity, in


France, so we thought we would start tonight with Le Figero. The picture


of the priest here, here is the headline... Assassinated by


barbarians, killed by barbarians. Unbearable story. The interesting


thing to me is underneath all of the details, underneath, Nicholas


Sarkozy speaking. -- Le Figaro. Talking about calling on the


government to implement all counterterrorism measures proposed


by the right. We must be ruthless, this is war, he has said. Frantic


business. A number of people over the last few days and weeks have


called 2016 a sum of eight, it increasingly seems that way, this is


another specific targeted symbolic attack, that has created a sense of


momentum, it seems like a day does not go by where something like this


does not happen, and the details are particularly poignant. And Nicholas


Arcos's comments, particularly interesting, he has used strong


words, war, terrorism. It is very interesting in contrast to Francois


Hollande, is language around this, he has been a little weaker. --


Nicolas Sarkozy. He has called it does to the and an abomination. More


measured, some might say. Others would ponder what would happen if he


called an election tomorrow, he campaigned on the security of


France. It is not really looking like that, it is an increasingly


divided nation. As we move on, as we look at the Daily Telegraph, which


has the priest martyred by Isil, that is what is so awful, an elderly


man, standing in as priest, because most of the priests were away doing


something else, his throat cut. What is really striking about Le Figaro


and the Daily Telegraph, these photographs, really screams soft


target. Concert halls, church, trains... First attack in a church?


These are soft targets, places where people are not expecting to be


attacked, not on alert. Indeed, as Claire is saying, the pressure on


the French government is very intense. That is one of the


combative did things, there is so much data, there is so much


information that intelligence experts pass through, and we have


heard reports tonight about one of the attackers having been locked up


for a period of time. -- parse through. It is so difficult to keep


an eye on these threats, so much information out there. The man they


were talking about, at Alchemy is -- Adel Kermiche. A lot of people will


be looking to France tonight, less than two weeks since 84 people were


killed in Nice. There is going to impact how we do politics. Going


back to the Telegraph stories, interesting quotes from the uncle of


Adel Kermiche, saying that he has been manipulated by extremists. We


should remember there is a lot of young, vulnerable people out there


who can be radicalised very easily and very quickly.


This attack was filmed, clear propaganda. And actually, I thought


the use of the word martyr was very interesting, that is the kind of


language that Islamic State adopt. Absolutely... One of the other


newspapers, I have noticed, the times have this, it is religious


wars... Bitter divisions between religions, really accentuated, right


here in Europe. Without a doubt, in this Telegraph article they call it


a war with the West. Certainly this was the first attack. In a Christian


church. That amplifies it and changes the narrative we will be


having about these attacks. The minute that we are in a church, you


wonder about the motive, is it religious, is it ideologically? Will


street journal talking about the difference between the terrorism


that we have been seeing in the past two months compared to the terrorism


that was in the 1970s and 1980s, when it was more politicised and


getting back prisoners, exchanges, now this is a lot more random.


Moving on, Daily Mail, talking about this British churches on terror


alert... I remember talking to date to one of the Catholic


representatives in France, thousands of Catholic churches in France, we


have loads of judges there, security will be dreadfully difficult but 2.5


million more is going to be put into it. Soft targets, incredibly,


located, these places are easy to attack with low technology. This was


a knife attack! It is hard to trace the knife trade in any country.


Something that is interesting, the localisation of this story. This


attack happened in France but now we are talking about ramifications here


in the UK. Indeed. Moving on, moving on to the Daily Express. It does


have a picture of the murdered priest on its front page, but the


main story... New migrants surge on the way. The express always believes


in having bowled, straightforward headlines, what are they on about


tonight? Britain could face a flood, EU migrants rushing here to beat


Brexit. It is a story that seems to be about a couple of issues, whether


existing citizens are going to get any clarity on whether they will be


able to stay in Britain, and indeed, British citizens living in the EU,


what their fate is going to be, but also this and about whether there


will be a cut-off point of people coming to Britain ahead of article


50 being enacted. This is something the government have addressed, David


Davies said last week, than he was going to take a tough line. -- David


Davies. They talked about a cut-off point, Theresa May talked about that


before she was Prime Minister. It is whether we are going to stop people


coming here, and there is going to be a deadline by which migrants can


enter Britain. -- David Davis. It is all part... We do not know much


about... The express believes in getting a campaign going and


sticking to the line, if you don't know about its history. This is a


poll, by readers of the Daily Express, after showing that readers


are in favour of a very swift British departure. That is something


that I found interesting, a division between those who may be in favour


of Brexit, some want a quick departure, to wait it out,


interesting negotiating strategy on both sides. It sounds like Theresa


May is more interested in a slower process. Obviously there want to go


more quickly, it remains to be seen which one is more powerful in


negotiating. If you can bend John mine to British politics, the


times... Story about millions of Labour voters placing Theresa May


about Jeremy Corbyn, also... What is this about? Essentially, this is a


poll that was commissioned by the times, using YouGov, and


essentially, it seems to show that voters who voted Labour in a


previous election would actually favour Theresa May. It seems to


suggest there may be something of a bump for Theresa May, stability, may


be an issue here, in the days following the referendum, the


transfer of power from David Cameron to Theresa May, perhaps voters


appreciate that stability. Another issue this calls to mind, division


in the Labour Party right now. Right now we all know that the Labour


Party is trying to find a new leader, that process has been


somewhat acrimonious. There is the mention in the article of the


potential for Theresa May to call an early election on the back of this


so-called bump, which is, as we were saying, it could really help


Labour... Overcome its own divisions, splitting the divisions


which exist within the Tory party, in terms of remain and leave and


whether there should be an early election. I also found this


interesting, pointing out that Theresa May has a bigger lead than


Gordon Brown achieved after he succeeded Tony Blau. I have a


feeling this comes from across the Atlantic, I keep reading about


bounces for Donald Trump etc. Is there a difference between a bounce


and a bump! I think that a bounce is bigger than a bump. Patrick


McLoughlin, and seven party chairman, very much playing down the


whole business of an early election, we have this fixed term Parliament


act, you have got to get rid of that first. He is playing it down. He


said it would be very difficult, and the concern that is raised is that


Labour would then campaign to reverse the referendum result, which


could cause... We think we are divided now...! Could cause all


problems -- all sorts of problems. The Guardian, they have the attack


on terrible things in France, they made John Michelle Balmer moving the


convention to tears. -- they major on Michelle Obama. We have heard


cheering and lots of terrible things, but crying? 23 minutes


clapping for Donald Trump, at the Republican convention. Glitzy and


glossy and weeping... Not the kind of tub thumping action of Donald


Trump, far more glossy. Bill Clinton caught mouthing the words "Wow" when


Michelle Obama was speaking. We can go to the Convention right


now... Let's have a look at what is going on... There it is... Bernie,


again, it is obviously going to be Hillary Clinton... Seemed like a


bone that the DNC was willing to throw the sound of supporters, to


allow them to voice their support. Huge message at the convention, at


both conventions, has been this idea of unity, on the Democratic side


there has been bitter battles to get to the point where they are at now.


To rally. On this Michelle Obama speech, it seemed like an attempt to


soften Hillary Clinton, make her come off as a more personable


leader... And stress this whole business of the first female


president. Interesting story as well... Yes, the strategy seems to


be, will the Democratic party try to convince voters to vote for Hillary


Clinton or convince people to vote against Donald Trump, this speech


seemed to be telling Democratic voters to vote for Hillary Clinton,


Donald Trump was not even mentioned by Michelle Obama. Did we know that


she is a terrific speaker, her delivery seem to be very passionate,


as a speech it was more careerist than anything we have heard from


anybody! Does a lot of campaigning, we knew that she was a good speaker,


I worked in that area, she does a lot of campaigning for girls and


education, we saw her doing James Corden's show, last week, and being


very funny, and the controversy over whether Donald Trump's wife had


borrowed some of her speech. That is a nice way of putting it! We knew


that she was a good speaker. Before we go, the front pages... Let's look


at some of them coming in while we have been talking. The sun has more


on the killing of the priest in Normandy, by so-called Islamic State


soldiers, referred to as cowards by one expert. All front pages are


online in the BBC news website. You can read a detailed review.


You can see as their with each night of the newspapers been posted on the


page shortly after we have finished. Thank you very much.
