Welcome to our look ahead to what The Papers are bringing. Let's have

:00:16.:00:29.

a look at the front pages. We will start with the Financial Times. It

:00:30.:00:34.

needs with Donald Trump promising a tax revolution. The former

:00:35.:00:36.

Conservative Cabinet minister has warned Theresa May to bring in tough

:00:37.:00:42.

border controls or face a vote of -- a voter backlash. Tom Daley and Dan

:00:43.:00:46.

Goodfellow are pictured following their medal win at the Olympics.

:00:47.:00:53.

Spanish police are cracking down on party was used by British tourists.

:00:54.:00:56.

The Telegraph says the biggest banks in Britain will be forced to offer

:00:57.:01:02.

customers a revolution in mobile banking. The Times says commuters

:01:03.:01:05.

are facing further chaos as unions prepared to step up their campaign

:01:06.:01:11.

against real companies. The Guardian says Jeremy Corbyn has consolidated

:01:12.:01:14.

his grip on the Labour Party after his victory at the High Court and in

:01:15.:01:19.

elections to the national executive committee of the party. The Mirror

:01:20.:01:22.

leads on a fresh police appeal over the murder of Stephen Lawrence.

:01:23.:01:27.

Finally, a former senior officer has condemned British police forces as a

:01:28.:01:34.

boys club according to the mail. We will start with the Guardian. Double

:01:35.:01:38.

victory leaves Corbyn scored an unassailable. He has won in the High

:01:39.:01:43.

Court and has a lot of his folk on the NEC, the ruling body of the

:01:44.:01:49.

Labour Party. It shows he is going full steam ahead with support from

:01:50.:01:52.

ordinary voters. We have the High Court saying those who signed up to

:01:53.:01:56.

become members of the Labour Party have a right to choose the leader.

:01:57.:02:01.

It is assumed the majority of those are Corbyn supporters because it

:02:02.:02:04.

came about after a campaign to set up fresh people, new Labour

:02:05.:02:08.

supporters in order to get Corbyn the numbers he needed to become the

:02:09.:02:13.

Labour leader. There was a campaign to get people to do against them to

:02:14.:02:18.

join. The assumption is it wasn't as strong. The High Court said this

:02:19.:02:23.

would be considered a breach of contract after the NEC said he would

:02:24.:02:27.

have to be a part of the Labour Party for six months at least in

:02:28.:02:32.

order to have the right to vote. It is details but it is important

:02:33.:02:36.

because it is indicative of the NEC being seen as out of touch. What is

:02:37.:02:45.

interesting is that there are now more Corbyn supporters as part of

:02:46.:02:49.

the NEC. That means that even if Jeremy Corbyn did lose in September,

:02:50.:02:57.

which no one seems to think he will, the Corbyn Brand will still be

:02:58.:03:02.

encrypted on the Labour Party. The NEC, it probably sounds like a

:03:03.:03:06.

random technical body, it is incredibly important. It is the 33

:03:07.:03:13.

person body at the top of the party. Every dispute has been decided in

:03:14.:03:16.

that group. When there is a division it is sorted by a show of hands.

:03:17.:03:23.

When it was how many MPs Gribbin needed to run for the leadership, it

:03:24.:03:26.

was that body who decided. At what point do we cut off the new members

:03:27.:03:29.

who appear to be motivated by Corbyn, it was fat body that

:03:30.:03:33.

decided. Every one of these contentious issues will now be

:03:34.:03:36.

decided by a body that we think predominately backs Corbyn. A huge

:03:37.:03:42.

win for him. Perhaps more important, when you think about the potential

:03:43.:03:48.

lasting legacy that Jeremy Corbyn could have on the Labour Party.

:03:49.:03:53.

Leaders come and go. The NEC comes and goes but not to the same extent.

:03:54.:03:58.

They will be able to ratify the a lot of the policies. When there was

:03:59.:04:02.

a coup after the EU referendum they said you cant go but we will track

:04:03.:04:06.

to enact policies. The moderates used that as a bargaining chip.

:04:07.:04:10.

Nobody thought they would. If you have a group of people at the top of

:04:11.:04:15.

the party who believe in these policies, giving power back to trade

:04:16.:04:19.

unions, nationalising railways, even if he is toppled in this race

:04:20.:04:22.

against when Smith or otherwise, that will carry on for far longer. I

:04:23.:04:28.

am thinking about MPs who put his name forward in the very beginning

:04:29.:04:32.

to run for the leadership. Siddique Khan, Frank Field, Margaret Beckett.

:04:33.:04:40.

She called herself a moron for doing so. This is actually their biggest

:04:41.:04:45.

nightmare. Bigger than Jeremy Corbyn winning the leadership. It is

:04:46.:04:51.

long-lasting and it will also eventually gets elected to be MPs in

:04:52.:04:56.

the longer term. Look at the fact that nearly three quarters of

:04:57.:04:59.

sitting Labour MPs had a vote of no-confidence against Jeremy Corbyn,

:05:00.:05:03.

that will change with time in terms of the longer policies. , the party

:05:04.:05:10.

conference that will come up in September, there will be a

:05:11.:05:13.

completely different tone. If Corbyn can hold on until September, which

:05:14.:05:18.

it looks like he will, he will be flying high unless something

:05:19.:05:22.

unforeseen happens. The person a lot of Labour MPs Liam is Ed Miliband

:05:23.:05:28.

because he was the one who brought in membership changes that allowed

:05:29.:05:32.

people to sign up. Having said that, what is it, four or 500,000 new

:05:33.:05:37.

members. Five times bigger than the Conservative Party. The NEC could

:05:38.:05:43.

appeal this ruling. It is expected they will. Even as soon as Thursday.

:05:44.:05:49.

That hasn't been finalised. Interesting times. Interesting times

:05:50.:05:53.

in America as well. The Republicans put forward a new candidate as far

:05:54.:06:01.

as the White House is concerned. There are many people on the right

:06:02.:06:04.

who do not like Mr Trump as well as many people on the left and now they

:06:05.:06:08.

hope they have a new standard-bearer. Those on the right,

:06:09.:06:13.

that is. Traditionally, a third candidate doesn't help the case in

:06:14.:06:18.

terms of winning, that he could be someone who breaks Trump making it

:06:19.:06:21.

through to the White House. This is a 40-year-old ex-CIA spy. He has

:06:22.:06:28.

done everything from work at Goldman Sachs to be a Mormon missionary

:06:29.:06:33.

somewhere around the world. He has spent time at Capitol Hill. He

:06:34.:06:37.

embodies different American institutions. He is being supported

:06:38.:06:43.

by a group of businessmen who are close to Mitt Romney. Mitt Romney

:06:44.:06:46.

previously ran for president and there was talk he might stand

:06:47.:06:51.

against Trump. He decided not to. He could be facilitating this because

:06:52.:06:55.

he is an unknown name. Evan McMillan, most people have not heard

:06:56.:06:58.

of the sky before this announcement. It is quite interesting. Now we have

:06:59.:07:04.

to look at the mechanics of politics in the US because this isn't the

:07:05.:07:09.

time when someone can stand and have electoral colleges. They would take

:07:10.:07:12.

on as a serious candidates that we will have the sea, unless the

:07:13.:07:16.

Republicans make a huge change and accept him as their candidate, which

:07:17.:07:19.

would take a lot of heavy lifting, we aren't sure how much chancy

:07:20.:07:24.

stance. He is not only charging Trump, he is challenging Clinton and

:07:25.:07:28.

he says neither one represent us. He is young, a fresh name. For those

:07:29.:07:37.

people think they are of the establishment, he is not

:07:38.:07:38.

establishment in terms of his reputation but he is in terms of

:07:39.:07:42.

where he comes from. Is he hoping to usurp Donald Trump were run as an

:07:43.:07:47.

independent? I understand he will be an independent. He says he doesn't

:07:48.:07:52.

want Trump were Clinton. What is significant, picking out the jobs he

:07:53.:07:55.

has, it would tick the boxes for what Republicans believe in.

:07:56.:08:00.

Religion, national security. He cannot win because over half of the

:08:01.:08:04.

state will not take any more nominees. What you Kunduz influence

:08:05.:08:07.

the race by sucking away voters from Donald Trump. This effect is Trump.

:08:08.:08:15.

UK pick one state in particular, Utah, with his Mormon background, if

:08:16.:08:19.

he does well in Utah or Rob Donald Trump from when Utah, that alone

:08:20.:08:24.

could have a huge impact. The Financial Times. China warns that UK

:08:25.:08:30.

religions are poised at a crucial juncture. More developments on what

:08:31.:08:35.

happened a couple of weeks ago at Hinkley Point. Everyone thought this

:08:36.:08:44.

was dead set. Theresa May recently in number ten said she wants to look

:08:45.:08:49.

across these details before sending it off. The interesting point from a

:08:50.:08:54.

diplomatic point of view is that China had a stake in this. George

:08:55.:08:59.

Osborne put a lot of effort into going to China, building relations

:09:00.:09:04.

and sent it is a new power. Theresa May deliberately or inadvertently

:09:05.:09:07.

has raised questions about this and tomorrow the FDR sent the new

:09:08.:09:13.

Chinese ambassador in the UK is saying that China - UK relationship

:09:14.:09:19.

is at a crucial juncture. The UK will keep its door open to China.

:09:20.:09:25.

That is a threat. It is an implied threat. If you plotted there will be

:09:26.:09:30.

consequences. You say Theresa May has decided to sign off on this. She

:09:31.:09:34.

was queasy by all accounts as secretary about this stuff with

:09:35.:09:40.

Chinese. She was and the FT here is saying her teeth edge chief of staff

:09:41.:09:46.

has been critical of China publicly and he is saying giving them

:09:47.:09:49.

investments in such a critical infrastructure position in the UK

:09:50.:09:53.

could allow them to have influence on how computers work and so forth.

:09:54.:09:58.

She has the people around her now saying hang on, we have to take this

:09:59.:10:01.

more seriously. It is interesting the Chinese ambassador told to write

:10:02.:10:06.

an opinion piece in the Financial Times to say very directly what he

:10:07.:10:10.

thinks of this and what the Chinese think of this. It is a veiled

:10:11.:10:15.

threat. It says our relationship will be impacted by this. We'll

:10:16.:10:21.

Theresa May look as if she is caving in to pressure if she agrees to

:10:22.:10:26.

this? Maybe a little. Water and immersing his would we rather the

:10:27.:10:30.

premise to have signed off within weeks of offers this multi-million

:10:31.:10:34.

dollar package that will last for years, possibly up to a decade. When

:10:35.:10:40.

it cost spirals, people will ask why she signed off on it without looking

:10:41.:10:48.

at it. For her to say it is not decided that is not to say it is

:10:49.:10:55.

definitely decided against. The Telegraph. Dogs put down needlessly.

:10:56.:10:59.

Thousands of dangerous dogs apparently been put down needlessly.

:11:00.:11:04.

This is an interesting story. It is for the anniversary of this

:11:05.:11:08.

legislation that came out 25 years ago and it is a review that the

:11:09.:11:13.

RSPCA has called for and said that thousands of dogs are being put to

:11:14.:11:17.

sleep because there are four breeds of dogs that are banned in the UK

:11:18.:11:21.

and if they are seen and considered dangerous they are being put down.

:11:22.:11:26.

What is interesting is that 21 of the 30 people killed in the UK by a

:11:27.:11:31.

dog since 1991 have not been killed by any of those four breeds of dog.

:11:32.:11:37.

It is not being successful in protecting the public and what the

:11:38.:11:42.

RSPCA is saying is we should be looking at the owners and they have

:11:43.:11:45.

the ultimate responsibility, rather than saying we will ban four breeds

:11:46.:11:52.

of dog. What the review is saying we need to review the legislation.

:11:53.:11:59.

Something has got to be changed, doesn't it? If the wrong animals are

:12:00.:12:03.

being put down? I didn't realise how many were being killed. 336 over the

:12:04.:12:10.

last two years. Battersea dogs destroyed 91 animals in the past 12

:12:11.:12:15.

months. When it comes to guns or other things, do you clamp down on

:12:16.:12:19.

what is doing the damage were on the people causing it? That seems to be

:12:20.:12:25.

a convincing case to say we need to do more upstream to stop these

:12:26.:12:29.

people creating the conditions whereby these dogs become dangerous.

:12:30.:12:33.

There are sanctions on owners as well? There must be. For the owner

:12:34.:12:39.

of a dog that attacks someone, that must be a sanction. There is a

:12:40.:12:44.

sanction on them but the ultimate section is coming to the dog because

:12:45.:12:50.

they are being put down. It is seen as an imbalance, especially for...

:12:51.:12:53.

The owners of these dogs did not care as much about the dog.

:12:54.:12:57.

Therefore, the little sanction they get is imbalanced. Onto the matter.

:12:58.:13:10.

The Olympics. The only delivers. Tom and down like a medal. The

:13:11.:13:16.

synchronised diving. It is incredible. Phenomenal watching

:13:17.:13:22.

them. It came down to the last of 36 dives. It was incredibly close with

:13:23.:13:27.

third and fourth and they pulled off a stunning dive, went to the side of

:13:28.:13:30.

the approved, they were cooked with tension and got a good result. Part

:13:31.:13:37.

of this celebration that toppled into the water. The crowd went wild

:13:38.:13:43.

and it added to the day when Britain picked up some medals. Team GB

:13:44.:13:47.

aren't doing too badly. Not bad at all. Tom Bailey came fourth in the

:13:48.:13:54.

London Olympics so good redemption there. They have only been training

:13:55.:13:58.

together for about a year so it is quite a feat to pull off that they

:13:59.:14:02.

have been training for a year. Everyone is waiting for his dive

:14:03.:14:06.

which should happen in about ten days or so. I was at my local

:14:07.:14:14.

swimming pool and it was packed, absolutely packed and it is not

:14:15.:14:18.

usually doubtful. Adam Peaty and the success of Team GB has had so far

:14:19.:14:24.

has given a bit of impetus to get out there and do some swimming. It

:14:25.:14:30.

is fantastic. When you see Britain winning medals. I didn't realise how

:14:31.:14:35.

historic Tom Bailey's historic -- achievements are. He has won 50% of

:14:36.:14:47.

the adults in this category. We haven't had somebody doing

:14:48.:14:49.

incredibly well in this sport for a generation at least. Brilliant. You

:14:50.:14:56.

will be back in about half an hour or so. We will have a second look at

:14:57.:15:00.

The Papers. Stick with us for that. Much more coming up. All the front

:15:01.:15:05.

pages or online on the BBC News website where you can read a review

:15:06.:15:06.

of The Papers. It doesn't suit everyone but if you

:15:07.:15:37.

are a warm weather fan, I have

:15:38.:15:38.

No need to wait until tomorrow morning to see what's in the papers - tune in for a lively and informed conversation about the next day's headlines.
