Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers

:00:11.:00:13.

With me are political commentator Jo Phillips

:00:14.:00:16.

and Nigel Nelson, political editor of the Sunday Mirror

:00:17.:00:19.

Good evening to you both. Let's have a quick look through the front

:00:20.:00:29.

pages. The Telegraph calls

:00:30.:00:30.

the Rio Games Britain's greatest The paper's main story

:00:31.:00:32.

is a crackdown on cosmetic surgeons who will be named and shamed

:00:33.:00:36.

for poor practice. The Observer leads with a call

:00:37.:00:40.

from the London Mayor to Labour Party members telling

:00:41.:00:44.

them to back Owen Smith Sadiq Khan says Jeremy Corbyn has

:00:45.:00:46.

been a disaster for the party. Nicola Adams's gold

:00:47.:00:52.

medal win is pictured The paper reports on warnings

:00:53.:00:54.

that Rio may be Team GB's last great games,

:00:55.:00:59.

if economic problems force a cut The Mail on Sunday says Theresa May

:01:00.:01:04.

has been dragged into a party scandal involving

:01:05.:01:09.

allegations of bullying. Jo, let's start, a terrific Olympic

:01:10.:01:29.

games altogether and this lady whose name will be bandied about a lot

:01:30.:01:33.

now, Nicola Adams, didn't she do well? And wasn't that a lovely clip

:01:34.:01:41.

we just heard? The whole thing for me has been this joy of people who

:01:42.:01:49.

were not household names a few weeks ago but the real reward for all

:01:50.:01:53.

their hard work, they have all been so brilliant, beaming brightly with

:01:54.:02:00.

great pride. She shrieked and hot about! As you would. So here we are,

:02:01.:02:11.

we got 65 in 2012, 29 gold medals and we are at the moment on 63, with

:02:12.:02:18.

26 cold, another five or six we could win overnight. It is

:02:19.:02:25.

extraordinary. The Sunday Telegraph, there we are, the US, Great Britain.

:02:26.:02:34.

China has over a billion people and there is Britain doing as well as

:02:35.:02:39.

they are. I didn't start these games with any great enthusiasm, it seemed

:02:40.:02:45.

what could top London? So I felt I would tune in every so often but

:02:46.:02:51.

suddenly it captured you and the fact that Team GB has done so

:02:52.:02:56.

incredibly well, amazing to everybody, not least some of the

:02:57.:03:02.

Team GB people who obviously weren't expecting this kind of result. It's

:03:03.:03:09.

a bit awkward for newspaper people because of the timing. The timing is

:03:10.:03:16.

hopeless. We're a bit behind but are a long way behind. But what we have

:03:17.:03:21.

been doing, last Sunday we brought out a 3M addition on Sunday morning

:03:22.:03:26.

of the Sunday Mirror, so we are trying to keep as much of the news

:03:27.:03:32.

that is going on in the papers, there was a team staying up until

:03:33.:03:36.

late last night to get it all in. Were you watching it all? Bits and

:03:37.:03:44.

pieces but it felt like Rio, there were problems with the building and

:03:45.:03:51.

the Zika virus, it almost appeared suddenly and this waterfall of

:03:52.:03:54.

extraordinary... There was no build-up. It seemed to suddenly

:03:55.:04:01.

happen. The Olympics will be in a couple of weeks, really? It's been

:04:02.:04:08.

brilliant. We will talk more about the Olympics but stay with the

:04:09.:04:11.

Sunday Telegraph for something different here. Cosmetic clinics, a

:04:12.:04:19.

story that has been rattling around but now they will be named and

:04:20.:04:30.

shamed for bot operations. And regulated, because it seems these

:04:31.:04:33.

clinics do not have to be regulated but now the idea is the Care Quality

:04:34.:04:41.

Commission will come in and give a star rating like a hotel, so if you

:04:42.:04:45.

want cosmetic surgery you can choose a clinic which is outstanding, good,

:04:46.:04:50.

requires improvement for inadequate. One assumes you would avoid

:04:51.:04:56.

inadequate ones, but what is astonishing is this has not happened

:04:57.:05:02.

before. Hospitals and standard medical treatment get it. I was

:05:03.:05:10.

surprised, there was a survey from the British Association of aesthetic

:05:11.:05:16.

plastic surgeons. I assume if you want something done privately like

:05:17.:05:21.

breast augmentation, you look up an advert and go to a clinic to have it

:05:22.:05:26.

done, but what surprised me in this article is that they mention laser

:05:27.:05:31.

eye clinics where you would have thought you would have to go through

:05:32.:05:37.

your doctor or ophthalmologists, you cannot just walk in and ask for

:05:38.:05:44.

laser eye surgery. I had a cataract sorted out but never laser eye

:05:45.:05:49.

surgery, but I would assume that was a process, it would have been if I

:05:50.:05:55.

had surgery, that goes through a doctor and it would start with the

:05:56.:05:59.

GP that you wouldn't just knock on the door and say, can you laser my

:06:00.:06:04.

eye? You didn't get as far as surgery. I just had a lens replaced,

:06:05.:06:12.

which is straightforward surgery. But how did you know the person you

:06:13.:06:19.

were dealing with? I have health insurance, I was referred to a

:06:20.:06:22.

consultant on their list, started off with a GP, I went through the

:06:23.:06:28.

normal systems on the basis of that, it wasn't a matter of flicking

:06:29.:06:33.

through a phone book and say that looks good, and it was at an eye

:06:34.:06:38.

hospital, so I thought I was probably in fairly good hands. You

:06:39.:06:44.

seem fine, but at the back of this the roster risk when it does go

:06:45.:06:51.

wrong, and if it does it can be catastrophic, not just for facial

:06:52.:06:56.

things but when it comes to size. There have been cases of people

:06:57.:07:00.

going abroad for cosmetic, in the true sense of cosmetic, for breast

:07:01.:07:08.

or bottom augmentation, where it has been very catastrophic and in some

:07:09.:07:12.

cases there have been severe outcomes from it, and things like

:07:13.:07:20.

liposuction, they all come under the heading of cosmetic surgery but if

:07:21.:07:24.

you're going to spend thousands on doing this privately, you

:07:25.:07:31.

wouldn't... All medical practices ought to be regulated, so the fact

:07:32.:07:36.

these haven't been, Jeremy Hunt says it's high time this was done and I

:07:37.:07:41.

wonder why prior Health Secretary 's have not done this. I suppose what

:07:42.:07:47.

you're saying is that they assume people that it is OK. But if you see

:07:48.:07:54.

one that has per on the front door you would not go in! Let's go back

:07:55.:08:01.

to the games, and the Independent have Nicola Adams on their front

:08:02.:08:07.

page, celebrating her victory, and also a story of Rio 2016, the last

:08:08.:08:13.

great aims for Britain. We have had one quite good, one amazing and what

:08:14.:08:20.

is this about? It's a bit incoherent because this is based on what

:08:21.:08:23.

appears to be an interview with Tessa Jowell, who was the Olympics

:08:24.:08:32.

Minister, and what she is quoted as saying is if in 2020 we are looking

:08:33.:08:37.

back at the Team GB that has not performed at the level it did in Rio

:08:38.:08:42.

for London, it will be fair to say Richard was one reason. That is the

:08:43.:08:50.

big words there. You think all right, but basically George Osborne

:08:51.:08:56.

in his last Autumn Statement in November pledged a 29% increase in

:08:57.:09:02.

funding for sport, that has yet to be confirmed as that commitment

:09:03.:09:08.

continuing under his successor, Philip Hammond. UK sport, the body

:09:09.:09:16.

that users were to spend about ?450 million per four-year cycle, are

:09:17.:09:21.

fearful but they haven't even got off the podium yet, let's not start

:09:22.:09:27.

talking it down, let's look at this and see where it's going. But if

:09:28.:09:32.

does go to the core of this, people save white or we suddenly doing so

:09:33.:09:38.

well, hosts tend to do better but then you go to Rio and what a

:09:39.:09:43.

surprise, we have done well, but funding has been crucial. At this .1

:09:44.:09:50.

ought to give John Major a pat on the back, who started the process,

:09:51.:09:54.

because without the lottery, a lot of athletes could not have got the

:09:55.:09:59.

training they have and that is something that builds up over the

:10:00.:10:03.

years so it is because of that we are now where we are, so I agree

:10:04.:10:08.

with Jo, I am not sure where Tessa Jowell is going with this because I

:10:09.:10:15.

would assume lottery funding will be unaffected by Brexit. If funding on

:10:16.:10:18.

top of that does not go through there may be a problem, but were not

:10:19.:10:25.

even finished these games, there is a long way before Tokyo and on the

:10:26.:10:29.

basis of that lets see what happens next. It has been improved from this

:10:30.:10:35.

that if you put money into an elite sports where you are most likely to

:10:36.:10:40.

win Wessels, see what happens. You will get medals out. So there is a

:10:41.:10:47.

sense of the poor relation but I have I idea for funding the next

:10:48.:10:53.

Olympic Games, I think it's marvellous, if every premiership

:10:54.:10:56.

footballer Steve a weeks worth of their wages every month and put it

:10:57.:11:01.

in a park for the next four years, they wouldn't notice and we would

:11:02.:11:05.

have enough funding to support it. It's an idea! We did hear it here

:11:06.:11:13.

first. Let's go back to the gritty world, and your turn to start,

:11:14.:11:21.

Nigel. The Observer, and that is Sadiq Khan, the London mayor, a

:11:22.:11:30.

successful election he had, he tells Labour they have the wrong leader.

:11:31.:11:35.

Which is interesting because Sadiq Khan has been trying hard not to say

:11:36.:11:40.

who he will support in this leadership election, every time he

:11:41.:11:44.

is asked he has dodged it, and he is now chosen the Observer to psych,

:11:45.:11:52.

I'm an Owen Smith man, I endorse him, and he says Jeremy Corbyn is a

:11:53.:11:59.

disaster, he cannot organise a team, 80% of his MPs would trust him and

:12:00.:12:04.

he has to go. Curious that Sadiq Khan choose as this moment to do

:12:05.:12:08.

this and not earlier in the week when he was asked the question. He

:12:09.:12:13.

was interviewed by the BBC Two days ago. And he said he wouldn't answer

:12:14.:12:20.

it. We always suspected that said the town would be an Owen Smith

:12:21.:12:26.

occur, we know he was never keen on Jeremy Corbyn, during the London

:12:27.:12:30.

election he did his best to keep Jeremy Corbyn at arm's length and

:12:31.:12:35.

when he was elected to the job, there was that uncovered meeting

:12:36.:12:42.

between the two of them, so this does not come as a surprise. What

:12:43.:12:49.

Sarah -- what surprises me is the ferocity of the attack and the fact

:12:50.:12:54.

he pins it on what Corbyn did or did not say about Brexit. He has come

:12:55.:13:01.

out all guns blazing only two days after being pushed on the BBC on who

:13:02.:13:06.

he was supporting and I suspect the reality of dregs of jitters, even

:13:07.:13:12.

though the sky has not fallen on our heads yet, here is the Mayor of

:13:13.:13:17.

London dealing with investment and uncertainty, especially in the

:13:18.:13:21.

construction sector, and worries about London, he is thinking if only

:13:22.:13:29.

Jeremy had stood up and I sense a real personal anger in this that he

:13:30.:13:35.

didn't come out and he says just a couple of weeks before the Brexit

:13:36.:13:39.

referendum, people didn't know where the Labour Party stood, and I think

:13:40.:13:46.

this is almost support for Owen Smith but it also recognises that

:13:47.:13:52.

Jeremy Corbyn is going to win and that's the other point. That makes

:13:53.:13:57.

me wonder whether we could look ahead more, if we think Jeremy

:13:58.:14:05.

Corbyn will win, the Tories do well, Labour will need a new leader.

:14:06.:14:12.

Possibly Mr Khan. Am I being too cynical? If you work on his timing

:14:13.:14:18.

that his first term will end with the next election, it will depend on

:14:19.:14:23.

whether Mr Khan wants to go for his second term as London mayor.

:14:24.:14:24.

You'll both be back at 11:30pm for another look at the stories

:14:25.:14:58.

I'm David Eades and, from here in the world's newsroom,
