squad. And Guus Hiddink has the secret behind Louis van Gaal's


theatrical dive at the weekend. That is all in Sportsday in 15 minutes


after the papers. Hello and welcome to our look ahead


to what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. With me are Evening


Standard columnist Rosamund Urwin and Daily Record political editor


Torcuil Crichton. The Metro headlines clashes


at the make-shift migrant camp in Calais, which the French authorities


are attempting to dismantle. The Sun stays with


the migrant crisis claiming that the UK population as a result of the


influx will soon hit 77 million. The Daily Express warns


of a triple tax being placed The Daily Telegraph leads with a


report, which suggests David Cameron plans to cull up to 90% of


grass-root conservative associations Meanwhile, the Mirror claims some 20


conservative MPs may have breached The Guardian focuses on the Tory


party's growing divisions over the EU referendum, focusing on comments


made by London mayor Boris Johnson who says the Prime Minister's fears


are, as he put it, "Baloney." The Financial Times reports that


Argentina is back in the black with American creditors after reaching


a multi-billion dollar agreement to And the i pictures artifacts stolen


by an international crime clan, who netted an estimated ?57 milliom


worth of treasures. The Sun leads with the migration


crisis. Jungle warfare. I reported from here in 2006. So it has been


there for well over a decade and looks as if it has been dismantled


and went existing longer. This is only the southern part of it. I


think the estimates were something like homes of about 200 people.


There are a lot more people in there than that. And if there are children


in there. One of the rather bleak, incredibly bleak, things about this


is that there are under 18s in that camp, which is forgotten. When we


think about people trying to come into the country, we are talking


about men over the age of 18. What does this achieve? One imagines it


disburses these people that area of the camp into other bits of Calais


or perhaps the other encampment in Dunkirk which is growing --


disperses. It doesn't feel like there is any humanitarian


considerations here. The question raised is why do people want to come


to Britain? We have taken fewer refugees than France and Germany and


comparatively less than places like Sweden. It is a massive attraction.


This crisis has been a long time coming. I see you in 2006 and I


raise you 1996 when I reported from Spanish Morocco when young men from


Africa were trying to swim across into Spain and enter for a better


life. The glittering lights of Europe and all that was promised. We


have a million coming across this year, perhaps a million more next


year, and the Sun's three short sentences capture the crisis.


Rioting in the Jungle in Calais, tear gas used on the Macedonian


border and the fear element of 77 million population in Britain in ten


years. That fear element of immigration are high and the out


vote in Europe. Immigration, mass migration across Europe and the EU


itself in crisis. It is a heady cocktail. The front of the


Guardian, Boris Brexit. Immigration and migration is going to be a big


part of this debate. Over the last week or so, we know that. Boris


Johnson is referring specifically to the Prime Minister talking about it


taking up to ten years to sort out free trade agreements with the 27


other member states of the European Union if we leave and he says it is


part of Project Fear. They will only use fear tactics to stay within the


EU. There is a negativity issued with the remaining campaign and an


unwillingness, especially from conservatives, to make an more


positive case for Europe. Rather than saying it would be worse to


live, what about the advantages? David Cameron are dressed it by


saying it is not Project Fear, it is Project Fact, and inevitably Boris


Johnson has called it out as baloney, in the way that only he


would use that word. Echoes of the Scottish referendum debate played


out not across a nation but within one party. In exactly. Part of this


debate in Europe, it is not just the cold facts on the page, it is this a


rule, from the heart. -- it is visceral. It is a lack of


sovereignty from the out campaign, the indefinable thing and others'


minds, we cannot decide our own laws! Facts and fear get in the way


of it because of the emotional... Exactly. The debate, when it comes


down to deciding to stay or leave, will be a battle between hearts and


the head as well. Nicola Sturgeon was saying that David Cameron should


talk about the free movement of workers, environmental protection,


workers' rights. If I think my sovereignty is disappearing, I won't


care about that! Those are good arguments for this institution of


the EU. Is she the right person to make these arguments? She doesn't


believe in smaller unions at. She knows it will be an argument of a


motion, heart and head -- unions. Do you think when it comes down to, I


don't know, the 10th of June, and it isn't looking good in the polls,


Nicola Sturgeon will start to talk about, hang on, it will take ten


years to get a trade pact together! Needs must. You need to win a


referendum. Scotland overall wants to stay, let's say. I am not sure it


is helpful if she weighs in when England looks like it doesn't want


to stay. She will have a vote. She is seen as a big politician on the


British stage. She wants to remain a big politician. If she says we will


leave, there is only three weeks to go, and you look like you want to


pull out, so will we. David Cameron mentioned it for the first time, he


has always said it is a UK -white pole, it doesn't matter who votes


which way, today he admitted that if Scotland votes 1-way end England and


other... -- UK-wide. Nicola Sturgeon has her own kind of Project Fear.


Indeed. Talk of victory for you're right to know. Freedom of


information is axed -- your right to know. I don't know if you can be


exclusive about something in your own paper. They have this campaign


victory on freedom of information. Health boards and the like have to


publish the details of pay tax for executives and the public sector


will have to state how many staff take home more than 50,000 a year.


It is an information coup, information victory, in a week when


we are discussing freedom of information. The snoopers charter,


so-called. They will congratulate themselves. This was something that


Tony Blair said he will regret to his dying day bringing through but


ISO used to it and so many stories for us -- but we are so used to it


now. We love this stuff. And the public. Yeah. It does not just


surfed journalists but freedom of information, the public could


eventually. And it is relatively cheap. That is competitive other


things. It is not some vast expense that it is painted to be. The Daily


Mirror, Tory MPs break election cash will, with a probe into claims that


they exceeded the spending limit to Win 20 seats. The road trip travel


bus of the Conservatives had undeclared in local campaign


budgets. The Tories deny it should have been declared as part of that.


The case made is that it should go into local spending within a


constituency to win a seat. What the Mirror is saying is they estimate


the cost, God knows how they estimated it, is more than ?2000 per


constituent, keeping those over the spending limit in that seat. If this


does stand-up, they have a massive problem. And in theory, to the


extent that they could have a by-election. They claim 20 Tory MPs


break these. There is no limit on how much you can spend as a


candidate in your constituency to win the election, but having this


bus coming in and specifically endorsing you as a candidate, the


Mirror argues should have gone on, so do Labour as well, arguing that


it should be attributed to the local, not national, spending. The


Mirror should be careful what it wishes for. If these results are


challenged in the 20 seats, one of them is where Nigel Farage stood, so


they could be included. The Conservatives have put out a


response to it, a spokesman has said MPs' election expense returns were


completed and returned by election agent in accordance with the law --


agents. They -- such campaigning is part of the national return, not


local return. The FT, an interesting development, Amazon deal to sell


Morrison's goods online could leave Ocado on the shelf. The markets have


been waiting for this for a long time. Morrison's has been lagging


behind online, delivering to your doorstep, and now it is teaming up


with the biggest online delivery sell all company called Amazon,


which will as we know swamp every market it goes into. This is


elsewhere talked about how Amazon is eating the high street. That would


sums up the attitude of Amazon taking over and moving into these


different markets. They do sell household goods. But they don't sell


fresh food. This is the change at. They are moving into the supermarket


sector -- change. Shares have gone up 6%. Here is a competition query,


moving into this avenue, it is like they are taking over the world.


There are lots of players in each of the market it is going into, so I


think they won't have... They won't have a monopoly. I don't think


Amazon is going to be anywhere near the market share that Tesco's has.


Finally, back to the Guardian and victory for Thomas. Yes. Mark


Rylance at the Oscars. I like a bit of showbiz. And a British winner. Is


speech was classy, wasn't it? He was talking about the importance of the


supporting actor. And their relationship with the lead actor and


how they are just as important, frankly. He is also a phenomenal


actor. He is such a great stage actor. To make that transition, he


is just setting out, is a real achievement and testament to his


talent. We should be very proud of him. He has backed the Oscar for the


best supporting role, and a 04 and Olivia award and he might well get a


BAFTA as well, so the triple in a couple of days -- and an Olivia


award. At a picture of him walking offstage looking pleased with


himself. It is a nice smile. It is every actor's dream. And he had a


family tragedy last year, losing his stepdaughter. Interesting to see him


interviewed on the red carpet, and his wife and his other daughter were


behind him, and they looked so pleased and so happy, and so proud


of his achievements, so a fantastic actor and well deserved. And it is


not a bad film either. It is a Spielberg film. It was all right.
