week's releases in the film review in 15 minutes. hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are nigel nelson from the sunday mirror and political commentatorjo phillips. most of tomorrow's front pages are in. the sunday telegraph says new polling evidence suggests jeremy corbyn is on course to sweep into into no ten after theresa may failed to deliver on her promise to take the uk out of the eu by march 29th. the observer reports that jeremy corbyn has been warned by labour's leader in the european parliament and other senior figures the party will be deserted by millions of anti—brexit voters if it fails to give clear backing to a second referendum in its manifesto for next month's eu elections. meanwhile, the sunday times also has a story about labour — it claims thatjeremy corbyn ignored evidence of anti—semitism
in the party. the sunday express says brexiteers have vowed to keep fighting for britain after leading government figures warned that brexit is dead. the mail on sunday claims that spy chiefs briefed the prime minister and home secretary about allegations that thejihadi bride, shamima begum was witnessed sewing suicide bombers into explosive vests. let us start with that story now. the mail on sunday. jihadi bride sewed suicide vests on. a chilling briefing that the prime minister got. this is a briefing for the prime minister and the home secretary, as you have just said, martine. and it came through other security intelligence agencies, spy agencies, probably the cia and dutch military intelligence, who have been talking to other islamic state converts who went out to syria and
places from the west. it claims that she was witnessed sewing these vests, these suicide vests onto the bombers, the would—be martyrs. any attempt to remove them would have detonated the bombs. the question this throws up is, you know, shouldn't she been brought back home, to britain, to face trial, rather than the home secretary stripping her of her citizenship and she is stuck in limbo land and probably would have, as nigel has said previously, being of much more used to the security services, if indeed she was not the housewife she claimed to be and was quite active. complication here is how young she was when she went to syria. yes. but despite the fact she is very young, i still think that you have to take responsibility for your actions,
even as a 15—year—old. so she stayed there for some time. she is not quite so young now. it seems to be telling us, again, if the stories are true, we don't know exactly where the intelligence reports come from or whether they are accurate, but if they are true, what she has been saying and her reasons were coming back to britain turn out to bea coming back to britain turn out to be a lie. and i agree withjo. the important thing is that she is british, she ought to have been allowed back here, picked up at the airport, interviewed by the security services, and if there was enough evidence to put on trial do just that. the sunday telegraph has a story about her as well, saying that she was an enforcer in the morality police squad of isis. this kind of goes on from the mail on sunday piece. what they are saying is she served... the morality police are basically bad to enforce things like dress codes for women and things
like that. and they say she was quite keen on doing that very thing. they also say that she was able to carry a kalashnikov around with her. so, again, this is very different from the image of the quiet sort of jihadi bride staying at home. she also had two babies, she said, while she was in syria, both of whom died. both of whom died, apparently, malnutrition, and that she gave birth to another child who was in the refugee camp earlier this year who died of pneumonia at the age of two weeks. so if the other babies and, she you, she is 19 years old, she has lost three children. and, she you, she is 19 years old, she has lost three childrenm and, she you, she is 19 years old, she has lost three children. it is terrible —— she has lost three children. it is terrible — — you she has lost three children. it is terrible —— you know. she has lost three children. it is terrible -- you know. she has her family at home that she chose to walk away from. she has her mother, father is in pakistan. the point you make, martine, about her being only
15. somehow or another those schoolgirls were able to book flights, travel unaccompanied. even though people were looking out for them. so they won't. .. we will save that for a second. jeremy corbyn bound for number 10 as the tories face a 60 seat loss. should there be a general election. should there be? i hope not. please, no! ithrow water on that. it gave me the heebie—jeebies, that idea. this is a poll of polls, which is basically putting together all the recent polls and coming up with a result. what it actually shows is that although the tories would lose 59 seats, labour would be 37 seats ahead of them, should there be a general election. that means we are still in hung parliament territory.
this is the problem about a general election and why i really am against one, because it solves nothing. all you do end up is back in the same situation we are in just a slightly different player is doing it. so if labour had to do some kind of deal with the snp, given the problems they are going through at the moment just doing some kind of brings deal with the government, can you imagine where we would be if we were doing a brexit deal with the snp as well? stop it! there are people at home who may be can't reach the remote control. just stop it! laughter. 0k. control. just stop it! laughter. ok. if you had, even if you had a government that included labour, the labour party isn't united... of course they're not. underlying all of this part of the reason why the general public are so fed up and frustrated and desperate for somebody to do something is because
i don't thinkjeremy corbyn or the labour party wants to take over the brexit negotiations. they can come in at the last minute, look as though they're behaving like statesman and states women in talks with theresa may, but they can blame everything on the tories when it all goes wrong, whatever happens —— statesmen. they went for an election they would have to say where they stand. the other thing in this story, and i know we're going onto about labour in a minute, there is also a move, apparently, to try and get the 1920 to committee, can serve committee, to change its rules so that there could be a further challenge to theresa may —— 1922. she was challenged for the leadership, she on that boat, and she can't be challenged for another year. that is shifting the goalposts. of course it would. the 0bserver, jeremy corbyn tilted back
a public vote or lose remainers. my point exactly. he is put under pressure “— point exactly. he is put under pressure — — told point exactly. he is put under pressure —— told to pack a public vote. this is from one of the meps, saying unless you go into the european elections, if we go into the european elections... it is a big if. there is a younger generation of eu voters who expect a guarantee on a referendum. this is a huge if, again, because the prime minister is still saying that the aim is to get us out before we have to ta ke aim is to get us out before we have to take part in that. that's right. the only way that can happen is if jeremy corbyn and the prime minister can doa jeremy corbyn and the prime minister can do a deal. i think they are both negotiating in good faith, but there isa negotiating in good faith, but there is a chasm between them. all you get out of the talks at the moment is there really isn't much movement. the only way this is going to work is if theresa may accepts a customs
union and jeremy corbyn drops some of the bits around that's, like further alignment to the single market, that he is asking for. when you try to get some compromise there. because the customs union bit only lost by three votes in parliament when ken clarke brought it forward. but jeremy corbyn are still under huge pressure. if he is going to offer something different, to say call another referendum. going to offer something different, to say call another referendumm isa to say call another referendumm is a bit ofa no to say call another referendumm is a bit of a no win that, especially in the north of england, labour's heartland, these are staunch believer seats. they do not wa nt staunch believer seats. they do not want another referendum. the sunday express, exclusive, it says, ministers fear brexit is dead. express, exclusive, it says, ministers fear brexit is deadlj feel as if this ought to be read in some sort of voice of fury and incandescent rage. somewhere between iain duncan smith and jacob rees—mogg. iain duncan smith and jacob rees-mogg. it is very muted.
crosstalk. can we talk about objectionable men? if you want to... there are libel laws in this country. the wrath of the brexiteers, those who thought we should leave and could presumably walk out nearly three years ago i just slammed the door and shove the keys through the letterbox, they are claiming this is a deliberate delay and brexit is dead and there is a zero chance. 0ne cabinet minister is quoted saying that brexit is now being killed off in slow stages. this is parliament, isn't it, doing itsjob? this is parliament, isn't it, doing its job? well, it depends. parliament would do itsjob if they listen to each other bit more rather than yelled at each other all the time. again, we're back to the compromise thing. if everybody stays entrenched, they are absolutely right, brexit is dead. they have got
to actually start moving. no faction will move, whether it is the remainers, the leivas, doesn't matter, they won't move at all —— levers. the parliament is thought to bea levers. the parliament is thought to be a remainer parliament. if they stay in the trenches that will mean not delivering the referendum.- the moment that is not even working. it is only deliverable with a labour votes. so the government and labour have got to get together. but they should have got together... actually, the parliament can't deliver it. so brexit is dead. they should have had cross—party talks straight after the referendum. of course they should! two and a half years on, reluctantly, theresa may is talking to jeremy —— years on, reluctantly, theresa may is talking tojeremy —— jeremy corbyn. one salisbury is the best place to live. one year on from the appalling novichok incident there
when business lumps and people were going there and people died. it is now voted one of the best places to live —— business slumped. a lovely cathedral. useful precincts. person died. a person died. thankfully, charlie rose survive. but business is returning to normal. the cloisters. i visited his home there. a lovely place. i am ashamed to say, salisbury, i have never been. now you have no excuse. and dundeeis been. now you have no excuse. and dundee is the best place to live in scotland. i think that is marvellous. excellent transport links, according to the sunday times. you are talking about salisbury, we're talking about dundee. keep up. finally, back to the sunday telegraph, picture on the front... laughter. she is so rude. i am sure dundee is
lovely. the radio times whole of fame. this is dame helen mirren. when we actually looked this up in the break, all we found so far as adverts for hair transplants in turkey, 19 haircuts for older women, and life insurance. i don't think this hall of fame exists. we will find out. the radio times like us. could they please send us... that is the papers for tonight. you can see the papers for tonight. you can see the front pages online at the bbc website. it's all there for you — seven days a week at bbc.co.uk/papers — and if you miss the programme any evening you can watch it later on bbc iplayer. don't forget to buy a paper in the morning. we don't mind which one. thank you, nigel and jo. ido! i do! there is always one. next on bbc news it's
