:00:00.:00:15.

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

:00:16.:00:20.

bringing us tomorrow. With me are Tim Montgomerie of the Times and the

:00:21.:00:23.

journalist and blogger Susie Boniface, better known as the Fleet

:00:24.:00:25.

Street Fox. Tomorrow's front pages, we will

:00:26.:00:34.

start with the Independent, which has a picture of UKIP leader Nigel

:00:35.:00:40.

Farage voting today. It leads on news of a new malaria vaccine that

:00:41.:00:43.

could save hundreds of thousands of people. The Daily Express is

:00:44.:00:47.

focusing on the latest official figures, which it says shows that

:00:48.:00:50.

Britain is buckling under the way for a fresh migration from Europe.

:00:51.:00:55.

The Daily Star reports on David Moyes being questioned over a brawl

:00:56.:01:00.

in a Lancashire wine bar. The Telegraph is saying the Government

:01:01.:01:03.

has identified vast parts of southern England as targets for

:01:04.:01:06.

fracking and claims that ministers will allow it to happen under homes

:01:07.:01:11.

without owners permission. The Guardian has a terrific picture of

:01:12.:01:15.

lightning striking the shard and also says a powerful Westminster

:01:16.:01:19.

committee is demanding the breakneck expansion of private colleges should

:01:20.:01:22.

be investigated. Seven Paul McCartney's health is concerning the

:01:23.:01:29.

Mirror. They say he is battling a serious viral infection in Tokyo.

:01:30.:01:37.

The Daily Mail covers the row on alleged remarks by Prince Charles

:01:38.:01:42.

comparing Vladimir Putin to the Nazis. Daily Telegraph, several

:01:43.:01:47.

papers hinting at elections but unable to say a great deal. This is

:01:48.:01:50.

all about what Kenneth Clarke has been writing in the Telegraph? The

:01:51.:02:03.

Tory's most Europe friendly member, we are trying to work out if he's

:02:04.:02:07.

been sent out to do this or he's a doughnut of his own back. He is

:02:08.:02:10.

basically saying we can't leave the EU because it would hurt business.

:02:11.:02:13.

The member states and the rules and regulations have been swept away,

:02:14.:02:16.

it's now much easier and simpler for business and we can't possibly

:02:17.:02:20.

leave. The opposite of what Nigel Farage would say and what an awful

:02:21.:02:24.

lot of anti`EU Tories would say. I can't help but think that this is

:02:25.:02:30.

probably the worst... If you were a Conservative leader wanting to bring

:02:31.:02:32.

people on your side, having perhaps had what may be a relatively

:02:33.:02:37.

bruising election night with UKIP taking some votes away from you, you

:02:38.:02:43.

would not really want Ken to bumble along in his Hush Puppies and say,

:02:44.:02:48.

it's all right, chaps, we are going to get cheap cigars! He probably

:02:49.:02:51.

thought he was doing the best. I completely agree, this is a red rag

:02:52.:02:59.

to a bowl. If you wanted to ask UKIP voters, and you will probably get a

:03:00.:03:02.

lot of them when you count the votes, who with a least liked in a

:03:03.:03:06.

Conservative Party, who they most objected to in terms of where the

:03:07.:03:10.

Conservative Party is standing on it would be their pro`European

:03:11.:03:14.

credentials, as well as their pro`immigration credentials. Sending

:03:15.:03:22.

out the most pro`Europe Tory out, I don't know who came up with this

:03:23.:03:27.

strategy, but it's not really the right strategy. That might be why he

:03:28.:03:33.

is indeed freelancing. You used the phrase is sending out, which would

:03:34.:03:36.

imply there is a party machine in operation here. You both suspect

:03:37.:03:43.

perhaps not? If the party machine wanted to convince members and core

:03:44.:03:46.

voters that the Tories were the right people to stick with on Europe

:03:47.:03:50.

for the future, they would be talking about the referendum they

:03:51.:03:53.

promised in 2017, there would be talking about David Cameron, the

:03:54.:03:56.

things he said. They would not be doing is. This is not the Tory

:03:57.:04:00.

machine. If it is, it is backfiring horribly. The Tory machine should be

:04:01.:04:07.

locking Ken Clarke in a cupboard somewhere, keeping him quiet for 12

:04:08.:04:14.

months. And throwing away the key! If you are watching and part of the

:04:15.:04:18.

Tory machine, get in touch. The Daily Express says migration is out

:04:19.:04:25.

of control, outrage as another 2001000 are allowed in from the EU.

:04:26.:04:30.

That is up from the previous year. There are different statistics

:04:31.:04:36.

within the story. Take us through the coverage. Completely related to

:04:37.:04:41.

what we have been talking about. This is the ONS? UKIP started as a

:04:42.:04:49.

party which was about taking Britain out of the European Union, but the

:04:50.:04:53.

issue that moves votes for them is the immigration issue, rightly or

:04:54.:04:56.

wrongly, that is what UKIP voters are worried about. 78% of British

:04:57.:04:59.

people say they want less of aggression. David Cameron made a big

:05:00.:05:06.

promise to reduce Nat Dileep Magennis immigration `` reduce net

:05:07.:05:11.

immigration. Early in the Parliament they seem to be making progress

:05:12.:05:16.

towards that. Although as a country, we can control immigration from

:05:17.:05:20.

outside of the EU, which Theresa May has been relatively successful

:05:21.:05:25.

at... That has fallen? It has fallen. But we can't control the

:05:26.:05:28.

numbers coming from Europe. The average voter looks at this pledge

:05:29.:05:31.

of things it hasn't been met. Nigel Farage, you can almost hear him

:05:32.:05:35.

licking his lips. This is the issue that keeps UKIP vote is rising. You

:05:36.:05:42.

are right, the UKIP spin doctor on Twitter was desperate for people to

:05:43.:05:46.

report this, saying, why is it not top of the news? It would get their

:05:47.:05:51.

core vote out to vote. But it is not quite as dramatic as the Express is

:05:52.:05:54.

making out. Overall, the net migration figure is stable. It is

:05:55.:06:02.

not doing anything. We have more foreign students from non`EU

:06:03.:06:05.

countries that are dropping us. A third of them that used to be here a

:06:06.:06:08.

few years ago are not coming in the same numbers. The people that are

:06:09.:06:12.

coming in are more likely, there is a 7% increase in those registering

:06:13.:06:17.

to work. And they do pay taxes, so that is beneficial to us. If you are

:06:18.:06:22.

worried about pressures on your local schools or house prices, and

:06:23.:06:27.

by 9% in the last year, it is still 200,000 extra people, net, coming

:06:28.:06:33.

into the UK. I completely agree with what Suzy was saying. A lot of

:06:34.:06:38.

people bring enormous benefits, they could our health service going. They

:06:39.:06:42.

also add pressure to public services. Whether we think it is

:06:43.:06:46.

good or not, David Cameron made a promise he would reduce this and

:06:47.:06:51.

he's not been able to keep that. One part of migration he cannot

:06:52.:06:55.

influence is the EU part. If you are a racist, this is actually good news

:06:56.:06:58.

for you. People of a different skin colour, there are fewer of them

:06:59.:07:02.

around, people coming from the EU, our own race, there is more of them.

:07:03.:07:06.

If you are really racist and horrible, you should be happy about

:07:07.:07:12.

this. I'm not quite sure where you are going with this. If you look at

:07:13.:07:16.

the opinion polls, ethnic minorities in Britain object to the scale of

:07:17.:07:20.

immigration as well. Not because people are prejudiced, it is because

:07:21.:07:25.

of the pressure on public resources. That is why people worry about

:07:26.:07:29.

immigration. Let's go back to the Telegraph, another story which

:07:30.:07:34.

caught your eyes. This is their lead, the great oil rush, vast areas

:07:35.:07:37.

of the south hold billions of arrows. Go ahead for firms to frack

:07:38.:07:45.

and homes. This has all manner of imprecations? It sounds very

:07:46.:07:49.

dramatic. This coalition has a slight track record of announcing

:07:50.:07:54.

what sounds like a boggling plan, and it is just a plan. And then it

:07:55.:07:58.

finally comes there into law and it has been watered down to what they

:07:59.:08:01.

originally wanted anyway, but people are now less upset about it because

:08:02.:08:04.

it is not the first boggling thing they suggested. When they are saying

:08:05.:08:09.

there is loads of shale gas in the south, between Wiltshire and Kent,

:08:10.:08:12.

they have been a big survey. We are talking about areas of outstanding

:08:13.:08:16.

natural beauty, the South Downs National Park. You are also talking

:08:17.:08:20.

about areas that are core Tory vote. The map here would be very blue.

:08:21.:08:27.

Very, very blue. I can't imagine in the next 12 months David Cameron is

:08:28.:08:32.

going to sign of going, yeah, sort it... Salt it... Well, not that...

:08:33.:08:43.

People have said worse on the BBC! It would only happen after an

:08:44.:08:50.

collection. Everybody will get outraged and then they will say, we

:08:51.:08:55.

are only going to do it in the desolate Northwest, then people will

:08:56.:08:56.

not be so upset. Big coincidence that it has been

:08:57.:09:06.

released until the polling stations are closed. What are you suggesting?

:09:07.:09:10.

On a weekend where there is so much other news about and people are not

:09:11.:09:15.

thinking about it. The idea of fracking and homes... That is

:09:16.:09:20.

debatable, you hear that argument, dishonest and it is how far under

:09:21.:09:25.

people's homes? I'm a great ecclesiastical or fracking. One of

:09:26.:09:29.

the biggest problems we face in the country is energy bills. If that was

:09:30.:09:34.

Ed Miliband's great success at his party conference, to promise to

:09:35.:09:39.

freeze energy bills, the only way you're going to keep them down is to

:09:40.:09:43.

exploit new forms of fuel. Shale gas has been a huge success for America.

:09:44.:09:48.

It is creating jobs, wealth, keeping energy prices down. Actually, people

:09:49.:09:53.

have exaggerated idea of what a fracking station is like. It is not

:09:54.:09:56.

a huge installation. People will still object to it, but it will be

:09:57.:09:59.

good for the economy, good for jobs and mean that old`age pensioners who

:10:00.:10:02.

are worrying about heating their houses, their bills in the long`term

:10:03.:10:06.

will fall. That's good social justice wise it is good economic. I

:10:07.:10:14.

don't disagreement I think the controversy is the allegations that

:10:15.:10:19.

it can cause minor earthquakes, that's the main controversy. If you

:10:20.:10:23.

suggest doing it under people's homes, that controversy is going to

:10:24.:10:29.

cause a huge fuss and be more of a controversy than perhaps it needs to

:10:30.:10:32.

be. I don't think this plan is going to ever be performed in the way

:10:33.:10:41.

they've suggested at the moment. Can I leave that controversy there? I

:10:42.:10:45.

would like to take us to the Independent front page. This in

:10:46.:10:51.

theory is a good news story. New vaccine can transform malaria. It

:10:52.:10:56.

could save, they say, hundreds of thousands of lives. This seems to be

:10:57.:11:01.

one of those unambiguous good news stories. This month is a month when

:11:02.:11:06.

Britain became one of the only nations in the world to spend 0. 7%

:11:07.:11:12.

of our national income on fighting global poverty. It hasn't been

:11:13.:11:18.

transport transported `` trumpeted because the Conservatives are

:11:19.:11:22.

worried about the UKIP thing. It is not a popular policy. What we spend

:11:23.:11:28.

on fighting hunger and poverty in the world is something that we

:11:29.:11:33.

should be proud of. One of the things we are good at is fighting

:11:34.:11:39.

malaria and vaccinating children. This is about tracking children who

:11:40.:11:46.

don't get malaria and investigating why they don't. It's a great news

:11:47.:11:51.

story. Something that British aid and British investment we can

:11:52.:11:56.

rightly as a nation be proud of. You don't even have to say this is

:11:57.:12:00.

children in Africa, it doesn't affect us. Mosquitoes are on the

:12:01.:12:06.

increase, especially in cities because of water buts and stagnant

:12:07.:12:11.

water. There's a possibility you could have a new malaria outbreak

:12:12.:12:16.

and, if, so we'll be grateful they have done this. A lot of technology

:12:17.:12:23.

on blood protein, there are ramifications for. This you can get

:12:24.:12:27.

one person's national immunity and transplant that into somebody else

:12:28.:12:31.

to protect them from disease. That the would help all of us. We only

:12:32.:12:36.

have a minute left to glance at the Daily Mail. Now the Kremlin hurls

:12:37.:12:41.

abuse at Charles. Should we worry about what the Kremlin is saying

:12:42.:12:46.

about the heir to the throne? No, because Vladimir Putin doesn't give

:12:47.:12:50.

a toss what Prince Charles says about him. Prince Charles knew what

:12:51.:12:57.

he was doing when he said what he said within hearing of journalists.

:12:58.:13:04.

Do you think he did? Yes, these are royal photocalls. They provide

:13:05.:13:07.

members of the public to the press to get quotes out of him. He's had

:13:08.:13:11.

everything scrutinised for 65 years and knew that was going to be

:13:12.:13:16.

reported. Due agree? I don't know whether he knew this was going to be

:13:17.:13:22.

released but this is one of the wisers things his said. He wasn't

:13:23.:13:28.

speak for Nigel Farage, who admired Vladimir Putin. But I think most

:13:29.:13:32.

people worry a great deal about Vladimir Putin's expansionism, where

:13:33.:13:36.

he wants to take Russian tanks next. I think on this occasion our heir to

:13:37.:13:43.

the throb is speaking `` heir to the throne is speaking for lot of us.

:13:44.:13:47.

Thank you for looking at tomorrow's front pages. Stay with us on BBC

:13:48.:13:54.

News. At 11 o'clock we'll speak to our political correspondents across

:13:55.:13:58.

England as counting gets under way for the local elections. But next it

:13:59.:14:05.

is sometime for Sportsday. `` time for Sportsday.

:14:06.:14:14.

Hello and welcome to Sportsday, I'm Mike Bushell. The headlines tonight:

:14:15.:14:19.

England's cricketers taste victory in the first one day international

:14:20.:14:28.

of the summer against Sri Lanka. Police are investigating

:14:29.:14:29.
