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

:00:18.:00:23.

us tomorrow. Without either columnist for the mirror and Tim

:00:24.:00:26.

Stanley of the Daily Telegraph. We will start with the Financial Times,

:00:27.:00:31.

reporting on fears that a global collapse in Government borrowing

:00:32.:00:34.

costs is sending British pensions into a funding crisis. The eye

:00:35.:00:41.

pictures Joe Clarke winning gold at the Solomon real. Britain's

:00:42.:00:43.

gold-medal winners are on the top of the Metro as well above the story

:00:44.:00:48.

about a judge was verbally abused by a man and she sent to jail. The

:00:49.:00:51.

Times says Britain's Tony Spiner ended new Hinkley point sea power

:00:52.:00:57.

tasting deal as facing nuclear espionage charges in America. The

:00:58.:01:03.

Telegraph says Scotland Yard is investigating allegations that a

:01:04.:01:06.

British tennis player was to liberally poisoned while competing

:01:07.:01:09.

last month's Wimbledon Championships. The Guardian says

:01:10.:01:13.

Jeremy Corbyn and his deputy Tom Watson are locked in a dispute about

:01:14.:01:16.

whether the party risks being taken over by hard left activists driven

:01:17.:01:23.

out in the 1980s. We will start with the Financial Times. Sutherland

:01:24.:01:25.

strike called off by Eurostar walk-outs fresh to bring fresh

:01:26.:01:31.

travel row. Not a good period for anyone who was to get on a train. It

:01:32.:01:35.

will not be for about 20 years. This isn't, I'm sorry, this isn't a

:01:36.:01:41.

one-off thing that is happening right now, someone has had a big

:01:42.:01:44.

idea and the union has said they do not like it, this is a technology

:01:45.:01:47.

issue. It is almost inevitable that at some point in the future you will

:01:48.:01:50.

have trains operated either by nobody at all or by somebody in a

:01:51.:01:55.

control room a long way away and at the moment we're talking about

:01:56.:01:57.

having trains operated entirely by one person at the front of the

:01:58.:02:02.

train, who drives the trench at the doors, uses CCTV to look around the

:02:03.:02:05.

train and see who is on and off. They have to handle all the

:02:06.:02:08.

problems. There are flaws in that plan and there are good things about

:02:09.:02:11.

it. That is what the argument about. The RMT, who generally run the door

:02:12.:02:17.

side of things, don't want that to happen. The union who runs the

:02:18.:02:24.

driver Kate of things is ambivalent. Both sides are saying that it will

:02:25.:02:28.

not cost jobs now but maybe well in the future. This will go on for a

:02:29.:02:33.

long time. It is a fundamental issue. Indeed. The upshot of this is

:02:34.:02:40.

passenger misery. I used to live in Brighton and I had to take the

:02:41.:02:46.

infamous other line. Hell on wheels, literally. When the wheels were

:02:47.:02:50.

moving! Famously there was one train that literally has never in its

:02:51.:02:54.

entire time of operation ever been on time. Extraordinary. The problem

:02:55.:02:57.

is there's not enough tracks to support all the passengers who want

:02:58.:03:04.

to travel on it. It's a thin corridor that goes from London to

:03:05.:03:08.

Brighton and through Gatwick. An extraordinary amount of pressure on

:03:09.:03:11.

that one line, not enough track, therefore not enough stock. The

:03:12.:03:15.

train said to be short. That is why there is some new bottlenecks and

:03:16.:03:19.

delays in that area. There have been repeated promises to invest in it,

:03:20.:03:26.

particularly Gatwick may be expanding. If it were expanding, the

:03:27.:03:30.

pressure on that line will be enormous. They are saying we need to

:03:31.:03:33.

create new technologies and cut costs and have faster and better

:03:34.:03:36.

moving trains but the staff do not want to see in Pak... The trains on

:03:37.:03:41.

Server now are very old and short and have not had investment on the

:03:42.:03:47.

line for a very long time -- sunburn. If we go to the times, real

:03:48.:03:57.

striker spent ?7 million on its own times. Yes, rather than on members

:03:58.:04:03.

benefits. It rakes in more times -- five times more members fees a dozen

:04:04.:04:09.

benefits. The Secretary is ?126,000 in pay and benefits. On the one

:04:10.:04:17.

hand, there's is interesting for any proprietor who is stuck trying to

:04:18.:04:23.

get to work and earn 30 grand, and you any grand. But unions exist not

:04:24.:04:32.

just to give members benefits but also amount to borrow money so they

:04:33.:04:35.

can deal with strike action. Unions provide help at work and pressure in

:04:36.:04:41.

legal advice and negotiations. In theory, if you're union isn't paying

:04:42.:04:46.

benefits out, that could be because your union is doing a great job, you

:04:47.:04:50.

do not have to receive the benefits. You are paying your subs for the

:04:51.:04:55.

union to do what you wanted to. Having said that, some people find

:04:56.:04:58.

this slightly hypocritical when I union says it is fighting a class

:04:59.:05:02.

war for the general interest of the workers and its staff are being paid

:05:03.:05:06.

six figures and on the other hand by supporting the interests of one

:05:07.:05:09.

group of workers, they are damaging the interest of another group of

:05:10.:05:13.

workers, those per-pupil trying to get to work. Like you to be. Well...

:05:14.:05:23.

We sit here and moan. Chinese Hinkley backer is accused of

:05:24.:05:28.

espionage. Yes, it is bound to happen, that someone who is behind

:05:29.:05:34.

the Hinkley plant bid from China, the funding 33% of this new build.

:05:35.:05:38.

It will be accused of espionage and spying. There was a story last year

:05:39.:05:42.

talking about that if they provide the computers that operate the

:05:43.:05:44.

Hinkley plant, they could write called into those computers that

:05:45.:05:48.

would enable them remotely to shut down Hinkley of the wanted to --

:05:49.:05:54.

code. It would reduce Britain's energy output. That is what Theresa

:05:55.:06:00.

May is worried about. She is worried it will cost billions of pounds

:06:01.:06:05.

more. Why did George Osborne like it? He is obsessed with China. No

:06:06.:06:11.

one is suggesting Theresa May does not love China. She is more

:06:12.:06:16.

cautious, she inherited the contract and said that she was to review it.

:06:17.:06:21.

It was claimed when she was Home Secretary she raised question about

:06:22.:06:25.

security. George Osborne's approach to trade was that Britain should be

:06:26.:06:30.

open to the world and there was an enthusiasm for being magnetic

:06:31.:06:33.

towards Chinese money. This premise has a different approach. Let's be

:06:34.:06:38.

cautious to watch that, which is not unreasonable, given the record of

:06:39.:06:40.

some of these Chinese companies when it comes to espionage. Will she say

:06:41.:06:47.

no to the deal? Don't be surprised. It is a bad deal. It is a bad deal

:06:48.:06:51.

with EDF and with the Chinese. They are made we are paying for

:06:52.:06:54.

electricity, what we should be spending our money on and how we

:06:55.:06:57.

will generate energy in the future. This is not the best way to spend

:06:58.:07:03.

it. Agreed, but what is on the table? What else? There is the

:07:04.:07:08.

possibility of investment in small micro nuclear generators which will

:07:09.:07:12.

be on every single town, that could be even more controversial when it

:07:13.:07:15.

comes to planning. The technology isn't quite ready. As of the legacy

:07:16.:07:20.

of the coalition Government and the Tories and to the extent the last

:07:21.:07:24.

days of labour. The body has put in place big legacy projects that would

:07:25.:07:30.

provide energy for 20 years down the line. They were too busy trying to

:07:31.:07:36.

reduce carbon emissions. Trying to do what was politically necessary

:07:37.:07:38.

now, not thinking about down the line when they were not in power,

:07:39.:07:43.

thinking about how people would cope. We should have been investing

:07:44.:07:48.

in tidal energy, which does not rely on the weather. I was going to say

:07:49.:07:54.

tidal energy does not rely on the weather, sunshine or wind, it is

:07:55.:07:56.

constant, it will always be there and you do not have two very

:07:57.:08:01.

radioactive stuff in the ground. It is amazing and we have put money

:08:02.:08:06.

into it. There you go, that is the future allegedly. Huffington Post,

:08:07.:08:13.

Jeremy Corbyn. We forgot to talk about it even though it is not a

:08:14.:08:22.

newspaper. Easy, Tiger. High on! Jeromy Corbyn is angry that Owen

:08:23.:08:27.

Smith has received an endorsement from GNB, the union. He said it is

:08:28.:08:35.

wrong. Some unescorted from within the coming campaign said this is due

:08:36.:08:37.

to right-wing elements. The must berate wing elements within the GMB,

:08:38.:08:42.

because according to the illustrious Huffington Post, a total of 60% of

:08:43.:08:47.

the union members voted to back Smith. That suggests there are a lot

:08:48.:08:51.

of right-wing elements full stop it should be added that the GNB

:08:52.:08:56.

apparently represents people who work on the Trident missile

:08:57.:08:59.

programme, so perhaps they have some interests. And Jeremy Corbin voted

:09:00.:09:05.

against that. The GNB endorsed Ed Miliband in 2010, generally regarded

:09:06.:09:08.

as the soft left candidate in that election. The idea that this is a

:09:09.:09:13.

union with a particular history of being Blairite or backing the right

:09:14.:09:17.

doesn't suggest that is true. Maybe there is some split with those

:09:18.:09:19.

people who have joined the party recently and have been disparaging

:09:20.:09:24.

about the new activist and those members of the trade union who may

:09:25.:09:27.

be more all school labour and more working class in the northern part

:09:28.:09:32.

of the country. Corbyn madness. As a writer for the daily miller, does

:09:33.:09:37.

this suggest that Jeromy Cobham will not fly away with the leadership

:09:38.:09:40.

contest in the way everybody expects? It suggests that if you

:09:41.:09:44.

ballot your members before you decide which person you are backing

:09:45.:09:48.

in the leadership contest then you may find that the average person on

:09:49.:09:53.

the street thinks Jeromy Corbyn will not be able to lead. Are you

:09:54.:09:59.

suggesting he balloted his members? Yes, and I might unite refused to. A

:10:00.:10:04.

Power Mac mirror survey found that 62% of all trade union members

:10:05.:10:07.

didn't want Jeromy Corbyn to lead the party in the general election.

:10:08.:10:13.

If you do not think he will win a premise the real contest, should he

:10:14.:10:18.

be leading the party now? But there are individual votes for this trade

:10:19.:10:21.

union members, they can only take as a guide what's the leadership says.

:10:22.:10:28.

That it, this could be irrelevant. Turnout is an issue. If you are not

:10:29.:10:36.

being able to effect to your union's stance on something, do you actually

:10:37.:10:39.

engage in the process? Things like that. It is interesting to think, we

:10:40.:10:46.

may see a return to the old dynamic of the unions and the centre-right

:10:47.:10:52.

labour or moderate Labour leadership being the one to oppose and block

:10:53.:10:55.

the left. That is traditionally what used to happen before the 1980s. It

:10:56.:11:02.

used to be that coalition kept the left. I will have to stop you there

:11:03.:11:07.

because we are going to go to Rio. Max Whitlock, there he is on the

:11:08.:11:12.

right, he is going to get bronze for the all-round gymnastics final. He

:11:13.:11:19.

is not the guy in a suit, is he? That is not Max Whitlock. Doesn't

:11:20.:11:26.

look like a gymnastics Mac the men's gymnastic team just missing out on

:11:27.:11:30.

the group medal a couple of days ago. But some success now for Team

:11:31.:11:41.

GB. In the gym with Max Whitlock. Let's dip into the commentary.

:11:42.:11:49.

Executive committee member of the International gymnastics Federation.

:11:50.:12:21.

Bronze medal list, representing Great Britain,.

:12:22.:12:29.

CHEERING Max Whitlock.

:12:30.:12:44.

OK, Max Whitlock about to get his medal there. He got two four years

:12:45.:12:52.

ago, to bronzes and now he gets another one for the all-round

:12:53.:13:01.

gymnastics final. He was actually in contention with another Brit. He is

:13:02.:13:06.

the one who gets metal round his neck. And a handshake. And a little

:13:07.:13:12.

something or other. What did you just get then as well as the medal?

:13:13.:13:18.

Who knows? Jim and membership? A snow globe? The weather has been

:13:19.:13:25.

absolutely appalling down in Rio, more like rather in Rio today. No

:13:26.:13:30.

disrespect to Rotherham, by the way. Let's move on to the Daily

:13:31.:13:33.

Telegraph. We have only got two minutes, forget the Telegraph.

:13:34.:13:38.

Sorry, mate. It ain't happening. Let's go to the Financial Times.

:13:39.:13:43.

Donald Trump. It's the Donald Trump. Now, Tim, you believe the press has

:13:44.:13:52.

blown this out of proportion. You have this for 25 seconds. His

:13:53.:13:57.

comments yesterday concerning the second Amendment. You may argument

:13:58.:14:01.

Delyn X argue he is guilty of a lack of clarity but what he is not guilty

:14:02.:14:05.

of is suggesting anyone should Hillary Clinton. He very obviously

:14:06.:14:09.

said, if you read the entire transcript is, Hillary went at once

:14:10.:14:13.

to rewrite the concert using, someone should stop her, I guess the

:14:14.:14:17.

second Amendment is people may do that, he meant that the NRA will

:14:18.:14:21.

lobby her. If you are going to beat him on anything, beat him on the

:14:22.:14:25.

many things that he said had been dreadful but not something he did

:14:26.:14:29.

not say. If you address gun toting Americans and said a lady over there

:14:30.:14:32.

was a take your guns away, what are you going to do about it, lads? They

:14:33.:14:36.

will probably suggest shooting her, especially if they are a bit

:14:37.:14:39.

bonkers, was quite a lot of them are. Same happened with Henry the

:14:40.:14:48.

second when he said he will rid me of this priest? And they went down

:14:49.:14:51.

and slaughtered Thomas Becket. He had to do a pilgrimage and apologise

:14:52.:14:56.

and the whole world party at murdered Thomas Becket. I do not

:14:57.:15:01.

think Donald Trump has heard of Becket. In 2008, Hillary Clinton

:15:02.:15:07.

said Barack Obama could get shot before the June California primary.

:15:08.:15:10.

People say stupid things before the course of a primary, pinning down on

:15:11.:15:13.

the things they actually said, not on what they didn't say. If they add

:15:14.:15:18.

that lacking in clarity, he should not be giving people instructions

:15:19.:15:20.

about where to fly their warplanes and things like that. "Go And bomb

:15:21.:15:27.

over there somewhere." No, I meant the other place! You're going to be

:15:28.:15:33.

back in 30 minutes to look more of the stories. Many thanks for that.

:15:34.:15:35.

Thanks Matt Whitlock for interrupting eyewear Papers. Stay
