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

:00:17.:00:19.

With me are The Sun's Political Correspondent Craig Woodhouse and

:00:20.:00:22.

Migration is the main story in The Telegraph,

:00:23.:00:32.

which claims almost half the population believes a decade of mass

:00:33.:00:35.

migration has harmed the economy and undermined British culture.

:00:36.:00:38.

Fewer than one in five voters say they are benefiting

:00:39.:00:41.

from the improved economy, according to a poll in tomorrow's Guardian.

:00:42.:00:45.

The Metro says nurses are calling for intoxicated patients

:00:46.:00:53.

The search for Madeleine McCann is the main story

:00:54.:00:56.

in the Mirror, after a libel action by her parents against the police

:00:57.:00:59.

officer who initially led the search was postponed again today.

:01:00.:01:04.

The Express says the strengthening pound means Britons

:01:05.:01:07.

going abroad for their summer holidays will get

:01:08.:01:09.

And the Daily Mail says the government is planning to make

:01:10.:01:15.

sure school milk is offered to all pupils in primary and secondary

:01:16.:01:18.

We will start, gentlemen, with the Daily Telegraph. Politicians blamed

:01:19.:01:31.

for hostility to migrants, what's that about. We have been reading

:01:32.:01:37.

this and we don't really know how they are being blamed, if they are

:01:38.:01:41.

at all! Let's move on to the Guardian. Being accused of having

:01:42.:01:48.

ignored Bodo concerns on this, hence the rise of Ukip. Although we may

:01:49.:01:54.

need to read inside how the conclusion is being reached from the

:01:55.:01:59.

headline. The bit you mentioned at the top, half the population

:02:00.:02:02.

believes a decade of mass migration has harmed the economy and harmed

:02:03.:02:06.

British culture is at the heart of this. It is a dilemma for

:02:07.:02:11.

politicians because on the one hand, they have to appeal to win votes,

:02:12.:02:16.

but on the other hand, it is the new immigrant `based culture that are

:02:17.:02:19.

going to be voting for them in the future as they become all part of

:02:20.:02:25.

society. It comes to this as we see in the Guardian, immigration is a

:02:26.:02:30.

seriously hot topic in the minds of the voters, not just the

:02:31.:02:33.

commentators, as is often made out to be the case. Do you understand

:02:34.:02:42.

the story? I have the same question as Craig, how are the politicians to

:02:43.:02:48.

blame? Watching your news earlier today, the Archbishop of Canterbury

:02:49.:02:52.

today calling, after his meeting with the Pope, calling for more

:02:53.:03:01.

immigration into the UK, for humanitarian reasons, above all

:03:02.:03:06.

else. I suppose what effectively this is saying is that politicians

:03:07.:03:11.

have, of all parties, not explained to the British public is why there

:03:12.:03:20.

have been the levels of immigration and now they seem to skirt around

:03:21.:03:26.

the issue. Even today. There is a figure here, there are 2.5 million

:03:27.:03:34.

more foreign`born British residents and their work two years ago, 1

:03:35.:03:39.

million more from Poland and the seven countries that joined the EU

:03:40.:03:45.

in 2004. And restrictions on immigration affecting something

:03:46.:03:50.

close to my heart, higher education. And the unpopularity, the image of

:03:51.:03:57.

our country has suffered in some of the far Eastern countries. In many

:03:58.:04:01.

universities, foreign students are absolutely vital, wide, to pay the

:04:02.:04:09.

bills because we no longer have free and higher education `` why. This

:04:10.:04:16.

tour is about the liberal ruling class on the front of the Telegraph.

:04:17.:04:23.

`` this talks about. Suggesting it is good for the economy. Arguments

:04:24.:04:29.

that Nick Clegg put to Nigel Farage in those two famous debates and he

:04:30.:04:34.

was roundly beaten. Would that make people more forgiving of migrants

:04:35.:04:41.

coming here. It is difficult because if you try and do that, and a figure

:04:42.:04:46.

says that eight out of ten people want to control immigration. If you

:04:47.:04:52.

want to explain why immigration is a good thing, you can widen the divide

:04:53.:04:57.

because people think it is the metropolitan elite telling them what

:04:58.:05:01.

to think. I don't think it is good when Nick Clegg goes out there, a

:05:02.:05:05.

white man who went to a private school who sounds like the other

:05:06.:05:09.

politicians... And literally a liberal! And telling you why it is

:05:10.:05:17.

good for society. Very few people turn around and say what our

:05:18.:05:20.

generation has always fundamental do it. We go into

:05:21.:05:38.

the European Union after a referendum in the 1970s when free

:05:39.:05:43.

movement of people is fundamental and we end up where we are, with the

:05:44.:05:48.

issues we have. You work for the Sun, do you think that the red

:05:49.:05:52.

tops, the popular newspapers, many of their red Wing, `` right wing,

:05:53.:05:59.

are partly to blame? I don't know, we have reflected this for ages. It

:06:00.:06:05.

is the politicians who are to blame. You don't feed into that? I think we

:06:06.:06:09.

are the opposite, we reflect what people feel, every leader we write

:06:10.:06:15.

says that immigration is really good for the country but it is not

:06:16.:06:23.

controlled to the wrong places, without appropriate houses and

:06:24.:06:27.

things to assuage the fears, then it isn't. That is why we called on

:06:28.:06:33.

David Cameron to make the free movement of Europe is one of his red

:06:34.:06:38.

lines when he negotiates on the referendum. It is too easy to blame

:06:39.:06:44.

the press. I think Craig is absolutely right, the sun, among

:06:45.:06:50.

other papers, reflects what the public overwhelmingly think. This

:06:51.:06:55.

poll supports that. We shouldn't go on too much, but finally, should you

:06:56.:07:00.

be reflecting potentially, prejudices that the public have, or

:07:01.:07:03.

should you be trying to put an analysis of that? If the facts are

:07:04.:07:12.

that immigration, on the face of it, brings money into the country and

:07:13.:07:17.

gives people jobs and is good for the economy, do you reflect that

:07:18.:07:22.

enough? I think so, we are very positive about it but we are the

:07:23.:07:26.

vehicle for the readers, to speak truth and this is part of the job,

:07:27.:07:32.

truth has not been spoken to power. If it has, it has not been listened

:07:33.:07:37.

to. We speak truth to power here in the papers! The Guardian, the

:07:38.:07:42.

majority left behind in the recovery, fewer than one in five

:07:43.:07:45.

voters feel they are benefiting from the improved economy. Again, the

:07:46.:07:50.

broadsheets love an opinion poll. They do. Here we are in the

:07:51.:08:01.

Guardian. Effectively the larger `` effectively the majority accept that

:08:02.:08:07.

the recovery is real but just 18% feel that their families are

:08:08.:08:10.

benefiting which is bad news for David Cameron. The paper says that

:08:11.:08:16.

perhaps Ed Miliband, much maligned, has got it right with his emphasis

:08:17.:08:20.

on the cost of living. The question is, if the survey will be taken in

:08:21.:08:27.

April next year, will the figures be the same? Down below on the Guardian

:08:28.:08:35.

front page, one of their correspondence, Larry Elliott,

:08:36.:08:37.

speaking to people around the country to understand why the

:08:38.:08:42.

economy looks illusory to so many Britons. One of the themes, modern

:08:43.:08:49.

Britain can be easily divided, he says, into a comfortably off third

:08:50.:08:56.

at the top, a middle third, one paycheque away from financial

:08:57.:08:59.

trouble and one third at the bottom, struggling and failing to

:09:00.:09:04.

make ends meet. Would that Britain was quite so easy to explain and

:09:05.:09:09.

understand. This is the kind of analysis and Paul that David Axelrod

:09:10.:09:16.

is going to be homing in on. `` the kind of opinion poll. He is the

:09:17.:09:20.

Labour election guru, who they hope will turn around the situation. This

:09:21.:09:25.

is what he has to look at. Absolutely, for many in the Labour

:09:26.:09:29.

Party this will be a boost after a difficult couple of weeks. They will

:09:30.:09:31.

feel that their analysis of what was wrong is correct. The issue is

:09:32.:09:37.

whether they can put forward the answer to the issues. One thing they

:09:38.:09:42.

lack, trust on the economy at the moment. Every opinion poll shows

:09:43.:09:45.

that is the hurdle they have to get over. Another thing that I think

:09:46.:09:50.

people are concerned about, our generation, my generation has a

:09:51.:09:55.

conscience about this fact that we are children, our children are going

:09:56.:10:03.

to be worse off than we have been, according to this opinion poll as

:10:04.:10:08.

well. I think playing to that, and finding some answer to that from the

:10:09.:10:14.

politicians is very important. When Ed Miliband spoke about breaking the

:10:15.:10:22.

British promise, he has not found their way to fix it. Reporting

:10:23.:10:28.

possibly on talks between Iran and the US on Iraq. Metro newspaper,

:10:29.:10:39.

talking about a ban on drunk people in AMD. The Royal College of nursing

:10:40.:10:46.

meeting at the moment and one of their member says that getting drunk

:10:47.:10:50.

isn't an accident, it puts on a huge strain and these people should be

:10:51.:10:54.

left to dry out. I think many people in Whitehall would be very

:10:55.:10:57.

sympathetic but cannot say it out loud. Why not? Then you come into

:10:58.:11:05.

this whole thing about whether the NHS is for everybody and it only

:11:06.:11:10.

takes one tried to `` one drunk person to die and then it comes down

:11:11.:11:15.

on you. As a money`saving exercise, you hear it all the time, accident

:11:16.:11:19.

and emergency on the weekend is like a war zone. Having been to accident

:11:20.:11:26.

and emergency... I thought you were going to say you had been to a war

:11:27.:11:36.

zone! Anybody who has been to an accident and emergency department,

:11:37.:11:38.

late at night, Saturday night will have sympathy with this story. I

:11:39.:11:45.

suspect. Onto the Daily Express. A strong pound. Off on your horse... I

:11:46.:11:54.

wish I was. I would be a happy man. Some of us over the years have seen

:11:55.:11:59.

this going up and down. Generally it is a good time, particularly to go

:12:00.:12:05.

to the United States, if you can... Remember the surveys we've been

:12:06.:12:10.

talking about. If you can afford a foreign holiday at all. Going back

:12:11.:12:16.

to the Telegraph, because you do not have to go on holiday, it is going

:12:17.:12:21.

to be boiling hot. Drought for southern Britain. This is the story

:12:22.:12:26.

we feared was going to come, I am sure the hosepipe ban will be one

:12:27.:12:31.

step away. This is one of those things, a drought is officially

:12:32.:12:42.

defined as a period of 15 days with 0.2 millimetres of rain, it seems

:12:43.:12:45.

ridiculous we will have a drought after the rain we have had. It says

:12:46.:12:48.

the south`west is looking very dry. after the rain we have had. It says

:12:49.:12:51.

the south`west They will be crying hallelujah. If the ward has drained

:12:52.:12:58.

from their fields yet. Credit where credit is due, the Daily Express

:12:59.:13:02.

forecast this. It has got it right at last. They are often right.

:13:03.:13:10.

Sometimes. Analysing the front page they are often right. They will take

:13:11.:13:16.

the opposite position one day after the next, it is like a broken clock.

:13:17.:13:25.

All right. You will be back in about 15 minutes or so, slightly changed

:13:26.:13:30.

timings because of the World Cup `` 15 minutes. Stay with us, we will

:13:31.:13:35.

have much more on the situation in Iraq.

:13:36.:13:40.

Talking about the World Cup, it is time for Sportsday.

:13:41.:13:59.

The headlines tonight. Not even Ronaldo could help Portugal, they

:14:00.:14:07.

were thrashed 4`0 by Germany in their World Cup

:14:08.:14:08.
