the party decision to ban new numbers from voting in the

leadership contest will not take decades the Supreme Court.

:00:00.:00:14.

Hello and welcome to look ahead to the papers. With us, John Stapleton

:00:15.:00:26.

and Esther McVey. Welcome both. Thanks for having us again.

:00:27.:00:29.

Delighted to be here, especially tonight. Because we are winning. I

:00:30.:00:35.

thought he might have said because it was me! Double gold Olympic

:00:36.:00:41.

medallist Max Whitlock makes many of the pages. He is draped in a union

:00:42.:00:48.

Jack savouring one of his victories. DfT reports that Brussels intends to

:00:49.:00:55.

tighten its grip on Web services. Theresa May has ordered Tory

:00:56.:00:58.

ministers to stop dithering and organise the Brexit as soon as

:00:59.:01:05.

possible. The paper goes with the headline gold rush. The Metro has a

:01:06.:01:09.

similar idea. Super Sundays they their triumphant front page. We will

:01:10.:01:14.

start with that. It is so good to have, after months of difficult news

:01:15.:01:21.

stories, have all this fun. People love good news, particularly on a

:01:22.:01:25.

Monday morning. The papers are quite right to splash this. This is

:01:26.:01:33.

phenomenal. Max has won two golds in the space of an hour. In the league

:01:34.:01:40.

table we are second behind the USA, ahead of China. Britain ahead of

:01:41.:01:43.

China in the medals table. And Andy Murray is with -- of a chance of

:01:44.:01:49.

winning gold. Listening to them being interviewed afterwards, Max,

:01:50.:01:56.

you won your gold, will you win the second? Your nerves could get the

:01:57.:02:01.

better of you. You could go out there and fluff it. And he didn't.

:02:02.:02:07.

He was cool as a cucumber. They have been so magnanimous, so caring and

:02:08.:02:09.

sharing to their partners. Very honest. Laura Trott, whoever it was,

:02:10.:02:18.

Wiggins, it has been sensational. I was watching the two Belgian girls

:02:19.:02:27.

who won the heptathlon against Thompson Johnson. But what was

:02:28.:02:36.

really striking about that and many of the events was the warmth between

:02:37.:02:41.

these two. They were applauding each other when an opponent did well.

:02:42.:02:48.

They hugged each other at the end. Jessica Ennis-Hill did at the end of

:02:49.:02:53.

competition. I was so thrilled. I wish that spirit would sometimes

:02:54.:02:57.

transferred to football. We have done our very best, this has been

:02:58.:03:02.

four years. Therefore, it does allow you to congratulate someone who is

:03:03.:03:06.

better than you. That was what was so amazing. That they were

:03:07.:03:11.

excellent. This camaraderie. And knowing when somebody better than

:03:12.:03:15.

you won. What a sacrifice they have made. Dedicating their lives to it.

:03:16.:03:24.

Are you going out on a bike now?! Yellow Madrid is a bit late. There

:03:25.:03:30.

was a lot of stuff after the last Olympics asking what happened to the

:03:31.:03:39.

Olympic legacy. People send that had playing fields not been closed down

:03:40.:03:43.

how much better we might have done. The National Lottery money has made

:03:44.:03:46.

a big difference. They have been giving the training facilities to

:03:47.:03:49.

enable them to compete on a level playing field, if you don't mind,

:03:50.:03:55.

with the opposition. Whether it was Chris Boardman coming into the

:03:56.:03:58.

cycling, it totally revolutionised it. He knew how to win, he knew how

:03:59.:04:03.

to get team tactics better. He knew how to get a strategy in place. We

:04:04.:04:08.

need to keep going. We will be ahead of America next time! Who knows? It

:04:09.:04:13.

is really great. We do have other stories. It is a bit like saying

:04:14.:04:21.

we're banging on too much! Not at all. We were waiting to see if we

:04:22.:04:26.

could show you this. Here it is, the old-fashioned way. The Huffington

:04:27.:04:30.

Post, Labour members give up on supreme challenge to leadership vote

:04:31.:04:34.

but fight -- pledged to fight on. They will not go to the Supreme

:04:35.:04:38.

Court because it will cost too much money. They steamed -- seem to think

:04:39.:04:42.

it has been worth challenging the decision. The court came to the

:04:43.:04:50.

right decision, saying that the precise eligibility criteria shall

:04:51.:04:53.

be defined by the National Executive Committee. They say the rules of

:04:54.:04:59.

your party should set what is really going on. To be fair, it is a sad

:05:00.:05:08.

story for a Labour. It is what is going on beneath all of this. It is

:05:09.:05:11.

poisonous. It is splitting the party. You haven't got the MPs

:05:12.:05:18.

behind the leader. You haven't got the members with the MPs. You have

:05:19.:05:22.

got new members with their leader. It is for them are very

:05:23.:05:26.

uncomfortable period and it will not get any better. I completely agree.

:05:27.:05:30.

I think it is very sad. These people are entitled to take the action they

:05:31.:05:36.

did. They opened up the debate about democracy. But at the end of the day

:05:37.:05:40.

it is an irrelevance. The real story is that the Labour Party is in such

:05:41.:05:44.

deep trouble, it is tearing itself apart. That is bad for the country.

:05:45.:05:47.

Every government needs a strong opposition. There isn't a strong

:05:48.:05:51.

opposition. There is every prospect it will get weaker. It has

:05:52.:05:56.

implications across the board. People want certainty in the

:05:57.:06:02.

country. It impacts business, exporter. You do need a strong

:06:03.:06:05.

opposition. Nobody knows where this is going to go to, but it will be an

:06:06.:06:11.

ugly fight and probably an ugly end. Prime Minister, get this out of the

:06:12.:06:21.

EU and fast, according to this one. This is a story the express loves.

:06:22.:06:27.

She says, crack, that, we have decided we are going. The story this

:06:28.:06:32.

morning in one of the papers, to which this is a response, is that

:06:33.:06:36.

they are dilly-dallying of it and making excuses. She said of two

:06:37.:06:41.

departments and they're not ready yet. -- set up two departments. They

:06:42.:06:50.

are saying maybe they cannot do it as quickly as they thought. Maybe it

:06:51.:06:55.

will take until 2019, 2020. Crack on with it. Crack, that, stop messing

:06:56.:07:07.

about. We are further ahead than we. Were We are ahead of the curve in

:07:08.:07:14.

one sense. The country needs confidence. People need to know

:07:15.:07:17.

where you are going. She is right. Crack on with it and get on with it,

:07:18.:07:21.

but equally, there are practicalities. But I do believe the

:07:22.:07:27.

civil servants will be going at top speed. They are in a meeting at

:07:28.:07:37.

7:30am to start the process going. Good heavens, what sacrifices will

:07:38.:07:42.

they make next?! Page two of the Daily Express is about Boko Haram,

:07:43.:07:51.

and kidnapped 276 young girls from Chibok. We are not going to show you

:07:52.:07:55.

the photograph because we have been trying to preserve the anonymity of

:07:56.:08:02.

these young girls. Some of whom have reportedly been raped and badly

:08:03.:08:05.

abused, forced to marry their captors. Here they are being put in

:08:06.:08:11.

a video to say, we would prefer to hand them over but we want some

:08:12.:08:15.

fighters back. It is an appalling story. And heaven knows what has

:08:16.:08:19.

happened to these girls in two years. And heaven knows why it so

:08:20.:08:24.

long to find them, to identify them. The government is saying, we want to

:08:25.:08:29.

make sure. They claim to be talking to the captors but they want to be

:08:30.:08:33.

sure they are talking to the right captors. Good heavens, it is two

:08:34.:08:39.

years. The terrain is not helpful. But even so... This is a

:08:40.:08:46.

horrendously brutal group. Since 2009, they have killed 20,000 people

:08:47.:08:53.

and displaced 2.8 million people. When they say they want their

:08:54.:08:56.

prisoners out of jail to return these girls, you have to think what

:08:57.:09:00.

happened last time. They took 105 of their own members out of prison, and

:09:01.:09:05.

an extra 600 prisoners, and more violence and death followed suit.

:09:06.:09:08.

The negotiations will have to be well judged. A couple of stories in

:09:09.:09:16.

the FT. This one will be interesting if you can sum it up for us.

:09:17.:09:20.

Brussels to tighten grip on Web services in telecoms shake-up. That

:09:21.:09:26.

is trying to get regulations right for a grey area in the law. They

:09:27.:09:30.

want to make sure that places like WhatsApp and Google and Facebook

:09:31.:09:36.

comply with requests for things like security, and also comply with

:09:37.:09:42.

things, how do they make their money from the details of their customers?

:09:43.:09:46.

I think for too long it has been a wild West. They are well ahead of

:09:47.:09:56.

the curve. I do not think it is policed or regulated properly. These

:09:57.:10:00.

are companies, some of only about 15 years old, when you look at it,

:10:01.:10:07.

Google as 2 trillion hits a year. Bigger than most companies because

:10:08.:10:11.

it has managed to go into the space, the World Wide Web, and basically

:10:12.:10:16.

like a Trojan horse, suck it up. Would you talk about the next one?

:10:17.:10:22.

Energy suppliers put their foot in gas suppliers. It is an astonishing

:10:23.:10:27.

story of the bottom of the front page. Thousands of gas customers

:10:28.:10:30.

have been overcharged because energy suppliers have made a sick mistakes

:10:31.:10:36.

reading their meters. They have confused old imperial meters with

:10:37.:10:46.

new ones. This affects all six big energy suppliers, apparently. Some

:10:47.:10:51.

people have been undercharged by 60% and some people have been

:10:52.:10:55.

overcharged by 130%. What this story does not make clear, possibly

:10:56.:11:01.

because it is not evidential, is how much these people will be

:11:02.:11:04.

compensated and when? Beggars belief. I love the bit that they are

:11:05.:11:10.

overcharged by 130% but undercharged by 60%. How many energy suppliers

:11:11.:11:21.

will confuse gas meters in people's houses? They are the experts. How do

:11:22.:11:26.

you put it right and when will it be put right? Finally, Buzz feed.

:11:27.:11:32.

Nadiya Hussain, who famously won The Great British Bake Off and baked a

:11:33.:11:38.

cake for the Queen, has been talking to desert Island discs saying she

:11:39.:11:42.

has been facing racism, that it has been part of her life for years.

:11:43.:11:49.

Almost a daily occurrence. Listening to it, I thought what dignity --

:11:50.:11:54.

dignity she had. In terms of how she was dealing with it and confront it.

:11:55.:11:58.

She said, this is my home, I love it here, but I will not meet and match

:11:59.:12:04.

that can of ugliness and vitriol myself. How she has dealt with it is

:12:05.:12:08.

tremendous. But the fact she has to deal with it that macro and her

:12:09.:12:16.

children as well. It is jealousy. There will be various other emotions

:12:17.:12:22.

as well. These can of attacks have increased. This story does not

:12:23.:12:30.

detail it, but would -- woman assumed these attacks increased

:12:31.:12:32.

after Brexit. Whatever your thoughts about Brexit, we will not go into

:12:33.:12:39.

that one tonight. It was proven statistically it did unleash racism.

:12:40.:12:48.

She was born and bred in Luton, this goal. And no one, no matter where

:12:49.:12:54.

they are born, should be subject to that kind of abuse. That is it.

:12:55.:13:01.

Because it is a Sunday, John and Esther will be back with a second

:13:02.:13:08.

look at half-past 11. Coming up next, Meet The Author.

:13:09.:13:12.

The athlete Eric Liddell is the man whose story was immortalised

:13:13.:13:14.

in the Oscar-winning film Chariots of Fire.

:13:15.:13:18.

A strict Christian, he refused to run in the hundred metres

:13:19.:13:21.

at the Paris Olympics in 1924, because the race
