Tuilagi's return to the training squad. And Gus Hideo has revealed

:00:00.:00:00.

the secret behind Louis van Gaal's theatrical dive at the weekend --

:00:00.:00:08.

Guus Hiddink. Hello and welcome to our look ahead

:00:09.:00:15.

to what the papers will be With me are Evening Standard

:00:16.:00:19.

columnist Rosamund Urwin and Daily Record Political Editor,

:00:20.:00:21.

Torcuil Crichton. We will get straight to it. Calais,

:00:22.:00:35.

the War of the jungle. We know the authorities were trying to clear

:00:36.:00:39.

part of that area where a lot of migrants and refugees have been

:00:40.:00:43.

living for several years and it has turned into violence. Yes, an

:00:44.:00:47.

amazing image on the front there, very powerful. The estimate is homes

:00:48.:00:57.

of up to 200 people out of 300 -- 3500 have been demolished. There are

:00:58.:01:04.

children there. What will this achieve? You imagine this will

:01:05.:01:07.

either disperse people to other parts of Calais or two -- to the

:01:08.:01:16.

other refugee encampment near Dunkirk. I'm not sure what they

:01:17.:01:20.

believe this will achieve. But obviously they felt they have to

:01:21.:01:24.

take action of some kind and it seems incredibly brutal to me. Is

:01:25.:01:30.

this the French wanting to be seen to be doing something, when in fact

:01:31.:01:35.

this is only going to, like a toothpaste tube, shift the issue

:01:36.:01:41.

elsewhere? This is a symptom. The reason the picture is used,

:01:42.:01:48.

Macedonia as well with 20,000 people trying to cross, the reason it has

:01:49.:01:52.

used this, it is really the disintegration of Europe, of the

:01:53.:01:58.

Schengen agreement which means we'll get a Harrier within a barrier in

:01:59.:02:05.

Europe. -- a barrier within a barrier. We'll fear North South

:02:06.:02:11.

split, and east west split and Brexit as well. How much can Europe

:02:12.:02:17.

take the summer? There is a meeting of the Council of Europe next week.

:02:18.:02:29.

There will be an attempt to hold back the tide which cannot be held

:02:30.:02:34.

back. No one country cannot solve this problem. France cannot solve

:02:35.:02:41.

the jungle, Greece and Macedonia cannot solve the problems. Only the

:02:42.:02:45.

whole of Europe can do it and this crisis is happening when Europe is

:02:46.:02:49.

under the most strain it has ever been. That takes us neatly to the

:02:50.:03:00.

front page of the Guardian. Apparently, Boris Brexit, Boris

:03:01.:03:05.

Johnson dismisses the Prime Minister's case as baloney. This

:03:06.:03:10.

comes after Number Ten per tout that it might take up to ten years to

:03:11.:03:15.

sort out all kinds of trading arrangements with the 27 trading

:03:16.:03:20.

nations of the EU. This has been described as project fear and Mr

:03:21.:03:25.

Johnson thinks it is baloney. It does seem that the remaining

:03:26.:03:28.

campaign has battled to put across something positive about Europe.

:03:29.:03:35.

What it does seem is, they are saying the EU is deeply flawed, but

:03:36.:03:41.

it is the lesser of two evils here. That is not exactly a campaign that

:03:42.:03:46.

gets people behind you. Is it deeply flawed? He has just done a new deal

:03:47.:03:55.

so it is fabulous? Hardly! It is a very difficult battle for Cameron

:03:56.:04:00.

when he has a very Eurosceptic party. Project fear, a term coined

:04:01.:04:06.

during the Scottish referendum when the SNP presented what they called a

:04:07.:04:11.

positive case for independence. It did not work. The Tories saw that

:04:12.:04:20.

Project fear did work in the Scottish referendum, it scared

:04:21.:04:22.

people with the unknown. They did the same in the May 2015 election

:04:23.:04:27.

when they scared people with the idea of a minority Labour government

:04:28.:04:32.

propped up by the SNP and now they are the brains behind the remain

:04:33.:04:37.

camped and they say that fear of the unknown will win again. I painted a

:04:38.:04:43.

picture couple of minutes ago of the European Union in the deepest crisis

:04:44.:04:48.

it has ever faced and all we get is the psychodrama of the Tory family.

:04:49.:04:52.

This is Boris saying Cameron is talking baloney. Boris and baloney

:04:53.:04:58.

are two words which I think go beautifully together! But Rosamond,

:04:59.:05:03.

Boris said he was not going to be the front and centre of the leave

:05:04.:05:11.

campaign. But he is not capable of not being the front and centre, is

:05:12.:05:18.

he? It is not in his nature. Here's a news magnet. The drama... And even

:05:19.:05:25.

the Johnson family. We have had all of them come out in various camps.

:05:26.:05:32.

All of them! It always ends up being about Boris in the end. Project fear

:05:33.:05:38.

and project good news balancing the two. Now we will go to the

:05:39.:05:41.

Telegraph. Cull of the Tory grassroots. What is this about? This

:05:42.:05:48.

is looking at the Conservative associations and it is a proposal

:05:49.:05:53.

that was the 90% of them axed and they would build super associations

:05:54.:05:58.

in their place. The defence of this is it professionalise is them. It

:05:59.:06:03.

reduces the power of Association chairman and makes them able to run

:06:04.:06:10.

more targeted campaigns tackling Labour. But critics think this is a

:06:11.:06:17.

bid to reduce their power to decide the next Tory leader. Because they

:06:18.:06:22.

are very Eurosceptic, the idea being that whichever way the vote goes,

:06:23.:06:27.

particularly if it goes remain, they want to weaken their power in order

:06:28.:06:32.

the next Tory leader is not hugely Eurosceptic, possibly Boris. That is

:06:33.:06:38.

the text of the story, the subtext is the flip side of Project fear,

:06:39.:06:44.

this is the leave camp's version of fear. They say they will lose power

:06:45.:06:50.

to a professionally spin doctored controlled Tory party if Cameron

:06:51.:06:55.

gets his way. This is the outcome telling Tories don't trust Cameron

:06:56.:07:04.

because he will do away with you. The other issues are mostly to do

:07:05.:07:09.

the Tory party, they are to do with Cameron and ministers being denied

:07:10.:07:17.

issues on Europe. There is a warning it will take ten years to

:07:18.:07:23.

disentangle ourselves from Brussels and an emergency debate in the

:07:24.:07:27.

Commons where Tory MPs expressed their concerns. Pretty Patel, one of

:07:28.:07:31.

the cabinet ministers said it was possibly unconstitutional --

:07:32.:07:39.

critique to tell. The Matt cartoon is good. He is always good. Nicola

:07:40.:07:46.

Sturgeon is very worried about our scaremongering about being in the

:07:47.:07:52.

EU. The slightly ludicrous situation she is in is she's hugely into one

:07:53.:07:58.

union that has made her political career out of opposing a smaller

:07:59.:08:03.

one. Nicola Sturgeon was in London today warning Cameron not to be

:08:04.:08:06.

negative. It struck me there that that was quite interesting because

:08:07.:08:11.

she, of all the politicians of Western Europe, has probably

:08:12.:08:17.

benefited most from this global wave of anti-politics. She is

:08:18.:08:20.

antiestablishment, anti-British government and here she is trying to

:08:21.:08:25.

put a lid on that and saying Scots and the rest of Britain should vote

:08:26.:08:31.

to stay. She treads a fine line. A tricky one for her. We will skip

:08:32.:08:37.

over Amazon on the Financial Times and go to the Telegraph. This is the

:08:38.:08:46.

NHS dabbling in urban planning and coming up with a way to make our

:08:47.:08:52.

towns healthier. The Telegraph has put it as new streets will be built

:08:53.:09:00.

like theme parks doing heritage children to venture outdoors. It is

:09:01.:09:05.

also about helping those with dementia by redesigning roads so it

:09:06.:09:10.

is easier to navigate. It is basically about putting health into

:09:11.:09:15.

urban planning and social planning. These new towns will be dementia

:09:16.:09:17.

friendly which means all the staff in the shops will know how to look

:09:18.:09:23.

out for and care for people with an illness. You will use Skype to

:09:24.:09:28.

contact your doctor, the nurse will come out to you instead of going to

:09:29.:09:32.

hospital. These will be changes we will see in our lifetime. It is

:09:33.:09:36.

about feeding it into the planning system. You think the public will go

:09:37.:09:45.

for that? No! It proposes that around schools will be fast food

:09:46.:09:52.

zones. Kids will dig a tunnel to a fast food store. Makes me think of

:09:53.:09:56.

those women putting the chips through when Jamie Oliver brought in

:09:57.:10:00.

healthy food. There will be great escapes from school playgrounds into

:10:01.:10:06.

fast food stores. They will go over the wall to get to a burger bar! You

:10:07.:10:13.

will be back in our's time. Many thanks. Much more coming up but now

:10:14.:10:16.

it is time for Sportsday. Hello and welcome to Sportsday. I am

:10:17.:10:37.
