Coming up in a moment, the Papers.

:00:00.:00:16.

Hello and welcome to our look ahead to all of the papers, the

:00:17.:00:23.

broadcaster Lynne Ford and the journalist Sean Dillon. Let us have

:00:24.:00:27.

a look at some of the front pages. We are going to start with smiles

:00:28.:00:32.

and selfie is at Heathrow Airport, as they concentrate on the

:00:33.:00:40.

homecoming of Team GB. And, the i describes the row between Jeremy

:00:41.:00:44.

Corbyn and Richard Branson as a bizarre row. And the Guardian have

:00:45.:00:51.

the medallists and the now famous train journey. The paper also, the

:00:52.:00:58.

Daily Mail also puts Jeremy Corbyn on the front page. They say that it

:00:59.:01:03.

calls his credibility as a leader on the line. On a Daily Telegraph says

:01:04.:01:07.

that UK Kimmich and have access to Skype and phones to help keep

:01:08.:01:12.

contact with family. And the express leads on a story on a Calais refugee

:01:13.:01:16.

camp, saying that the number of people trying to cross the channel

:01:17.:01:18.

has doubled in the last two months. We are going to start with trained

:01:19.:01:27.

date. Rail gate, ticket gate. The Daily Mail. All of the stuff that is

:01:28.:01:32.

happening in the world, and we have got oodles of space,. It is on

:01:33.:01:39.

pretty much every cover, you know why? It is pretty funny. It is not

:01:40.:01:45.

that it is funny, it is sad that we have got a politician who is trying

:01:46.:01:49.

to make a point that is easily shot down and then you have got Richard

:01:50.:01:54.

Branson, Corbin's point is that he wants to privatise the well rate, --

:01:55.:02:03.

the railway. If they were nationalised we could run them

:02:04.:02:05.

better. And of course Richard Branson who owns the training

:02:06.:02:13.

question, and who doesn't want to give up his ownership comedies now

:02:14.:02:17.

rubbishing Corbin, so it is a terrible shame. Just take people

:02:18.:02:26.

through. The Daily Mail, Jeremy Corbyn, the first class hypocrite.

:02:27.:02:29.

He is making the point that he was on a train that was full so he had

:02:30.:02:34.

to sit on the floor and he filmed this but virgin saying that the

:02:35.:02:39.

train wasn't full. It wasn't, was it? Heat is 11am, trains can be

:02:40.:02:47.

really full and really annoying and maybe there is a 26-year-old woman,

:02:48.:02:55.

she couldn't get a seat. But the thing that struck me, first of all

:02:56.:02:58.

the difference between the different stories on this. Daly but the Daily

:02:59.:03:09.

Mail starts with "Jeremy Corbyn's credibility is in shreds after CCTV

:03:10.:03:13.

suggests that he lied about having to sit on the floor". Let us look at

:03:14.:03:19.

the timing, I have sympathy for Jeremy Corbyn who must feel slightly

:03:20.:03:23.

discombobulated about the fuss, that this has caused this evening, but I

:03:24.:03:28.

think the suspicion is, when you look through the photographs, you

:03:29.:03:34.

see him walking past reserved or not reserved, if there are no empty seat

:03:35.:03:40.

you go by reserved. The suspicious journalist in me, ultimately he

:03:41.:03:44.

wanted to make a report about something to show that, maybe you'd

:03:45.:03:49.

get the train at 9am but not 11, the suspicion is that they have almost

:03:50.:03:52.

storyboarded this, to demonstrate the point that he is making, and it

:03:53.:03:59.

is a bit embarrassing, it is a nonissue, he got on a train, he has

:04:00.:04:06.

a very sincerely held view, some people think that is amazing and

:04:07.:04:09.

some people will hugely disagree with it. It has blown up a little

:04:10.:04:14.

bit as a result but how much of that is the issue and the answer? If you

:04:15.:04:20.

go on the train and he is going to give a speech in Newcastle, and he

:04:21.:04:24.

knows where he's going, you booked ahead because it is cheaper. He's

:04:25.:04:29.

also making the point that the trains are expensive and they are

:04:30.:04:34.

actually compared to other ones? We don't know that he didn't miss a

:04:35.:04:39.

train in fairness. Quite a gang of them, but the point is that he has

:04:40.:04:45.

come out of King's Cross, and you can see on your news channel that

:04:46.:04:49.

there is a number of reserved seats that haven't been taken up. Everyone

:04:50.:04:53.

knows that once the train has moved off, you grab those seats. If you

:04:54.:05:00.

have somebody who is Prime Minister, you need somebody whose Prime

:05:01.:05:04.

Minister, who can save areas and empty seat. But we have alluded to

:05:05.:05:12.

the contrast that the papers have taken, the Daily Mail essentially

:05:13.:05:15.

attacking Jeremy Corbyn, the Guardian saying that Jeremy Corbyn

:05:16.:05:19.

fends off the attack. He defends his claim of ramped pack trains. This

:05:20.:05:28.

sums up the relationships between sections of the press, and the

:05:29.:05:35.

Labour leader. Ever since the went to the top of the party? He is a

:05:36.:05:41.

hugely divisive character. I think his strength and his weakness can be

:05:42.:05:46.

boiled down to this, he doesn't say anything he doesn't think, but he

:05:47.:05:50.

opens up a can of worms because he doesn't appear to think anything

:05:51.:05:54.

that he doesn't say. I think many of us can respect somebody who has

:05:55.:05:58.

actual principles and something to contribute but what we are seeing

:05:59.:06:02.

and the Labour leadership election will prove this, is the divide

:06:03.:06:07.

between the Parliamentary party with Harriet Harman attacking him for

:06:08.:06:10.

sitting in front of the loo in the first place and not booking. Is in

:06:11.:06:17.

that part of the appeal for Jeremy Corbyn, he doesn't focus group what

:06:18.:06:22.

he says. He doesn't test it with the public and he says what he means and

:06:23.:06:28.

people like that. He has stuck to it for 30 years and the problem is he

:06:29.:06:33.

has been a rebel for 30 years, he is a very nice chap but do you want the

:06:34.:06:38.

very nice chap running your opposition party who has always been

:06:39.:06:44.

a rebel and who thinks that this is with his team a good way to handle

:06:45.:06:49.

his story? This was a sitting duck for the press. He was sitting

:06:50.:06:56.

literally on the floor. He has got such bad publicity, and you think,

:06:57.:07:11.

more sympathetic in the Guardian, but it is not completely Rand

:07:12.:07:17.

packed. And you can see, interestingly Sean, Richard Branson

:07:18.:07:21.

getting involved, in virgin they clearly see him as an extension

:07:22.:07:27.

threat, Mr Corbyn. Either that, or Richard Branson is Newsnight this

:07:28.:07:31.

morning, he wants more privatisation so that he can buy more trains,

:07:32.:07:36.

naturally that is what we call enterprise and Jeremy Corbyn has the

:07:37.:07:40.

opposite view. It could be, that they would answer it back. Letter

:07:41.:07:46.

scope to the Daily Telegraph, prisoners me Skype phones on their

:07:47.:07:52.

trains apparently? I have a of sympathy with this story and the way

:07:53.:07:57.

that the headline makes it look as if they could make contact with a

:07:58.:08:02.

drug dealer, but actually, Her Majesty 's Inspectorate are making

:08:03.:08:06.

the point, that they need contact with their families. Something like

:08:07.:08:11.

70% of prisoners come back into the inside again afterwards and for them

:08:12.:08:16.

to have better relationships with their families, if this is

:08:17.:08:19.

controlled properly I think it is a jolly good thing for them to have

:08:20.:08:22.

more contact with the outside because at the moment they are

:08:23.:08:26.

smuggling in phones for various purposes. And if they can clamp down

:08:27.:08:31.

on that, one reason they say they get hold of those is because they

:08:32.:08:34.

never have enough time to talk to their families. So I am sympathetic.

:08:35.:08:43.

I know some people say it is outrageous, that there are drug

:08:44.:08:48.

deals. It talks about rehabilitation so few are reintroducing somebody to

:08:49.:08:53.

society. Andrew Rossendale quoted the Romford MP saying, you're not

:08:54.:08:56.

going to treat them nicely effectively. It is part of building

:08:57.:09:05.

up responsibility surely? I think it is punishment enough to be taken

:09:06.:09:08.

away from everything you know into prison. You guys are in agreement on

:09:09.:09:17.

that one, that is good to see. As long as it is controlled. Indeed,

:09:18.:09:23.

the Financial Times, commercial property deal slips. We had the June

:09:24.:09:31.

and July sales figures. So what is going on with this? If you have a

:09:32.:09:37.

Brexit voter coming out of the EU, with an transplant in, not coming

:09:38.:09:41.

out of the Council of Europe. If you are in big is this you will be

:09:42.:09:45.

slightly reticent to invest because you don't know what the market is

:09:46.:09:49.

going to do. However when you say that the interest rate is at an

:09:50.:09:53.

all-time low and we are gained to keep it because the worst thing the

:09:54.:09:57.

world is Brexit, people are buying houses all the way around the United

:09:58.:10:02.

Kingdom. So it would be interesting, anyone with a notion of place good

:10:03.:10:06.

economics would probably say that if the housing market is pretty good,

:10:07.:10:11.

maybe some of these other buildings and commercial enterprises will be

:10:12.:10:14.

looking up to capitalise on that. What they are saying here is that it

:10:15.:10:19.

is not a surprise that this is one of the first areas to be hit. They

:10:20.:10:24.

are using language like one of the first areas to be hit. It is

:10:25.:10:28.

spending in the summer because we suddenly had a son and people spend

:10:29.:10:33.

money. But we have saved it really and the housing market, and it is

:10:34.:10:37.

costing us less to borrow and it is costing us nothing. Buy a house they

:10:38.:10:43.

are brilliantly good value at the moment stopping you can't buy a

:10:44.:10:48.

house. It might be business. You have still got to get a mortgage

:10:49.:10:55.

even though interest rates are low. It is interesting, public seem to be

:10:56.:10:59.

weathering the whole Brexit thing a little bit better, than business

:11:00.:11:03.

owners, bosses and indeed commercial property. That is the winter of our

:11:04.:11:13.

discontent. People have been having a very nice time feeling good about

:11:14.:11:19.

the Olympics. We haven't gone there yet because we are going very

:11:20.:11:27.

quickly. XP HS owner says he cannot afford to file taxes. -- to travel

:11:28.:11:35.

by taxi. This is the former owner of BHS who has gone bust. He has got

:11:36.:11:45.

2.6 million from it before it collapsed and he is in a 1.6 million

:11:46.:11:50.

manor house, he says he's in hardship because his nearest

:11:51.:11:57.

bus and trains are miles away. I am in tears but I tell you what, the

:11:58.:12:06.

front page of the Daily Mail, the ladies are not in tears, they are

:12:07.:12:13.

smiling. We are home with goals. Great things have been happening,

:12:14.:12:20.

her lovely picture. And support of the Olympics after 2012, frankly

:12:21.:12:25.

people didn't care, now, people in Rio are saying that they will really

:12:26.:12:33.

miss the fixed -- people the UK. The medals on them have Rio 2016 in

:12:34.:12:40.

Braille. Not difficult to do but it is part of universal access. Can I

:12:41.:12:49.

get world on Dominic Chappel. We have talked enough about him. That

:12:50.:12:53.

is it for the papers tonight, don't forget all of the front pages are

:12:54.:12:59.

online on the website. By thanks to my guests and of course to you for

:13:00.:13:03.

watching. The headlines are next, goodbye for now. Hello it has been a
