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

:00:00.:00:07.

after the papers. Hello and welcome to our look ahead

:00:08.:00:14.

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

:00:15.:00:18.

Standard columnist Rosamund Urwin and Daily Record political editor

:00:19.:00:21.

Torcuil Crichton. The Metro headlines clashes

:00:22.:00:25.

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

:00:26.:00:31.

are attempting to dismantle. The Sun stays with

:00:32.:00:36.

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

:00:37.:00:38.

influx will soon hit 77 million. The Daily Express warns

:00:39.:00:44.

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

:00:45.:00:46.

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

:00:47.:00:58.

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

:00:59.:01:00.

conservative MPs may have breached The Guardian focuses on the Tory

:01:01.:01:07.

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

:01:08.:01:11.

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

:01:12.:01:15.

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

:01:16.:01:19.

Argentina is back in the black with American creditors after reaching

:01:20.:01:22.

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

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

:01:25.:01:31.

worth of treasures. The Sun leads with the migration

:01:32.:01:49.

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

:01:50.:01:56.

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

:01:57.:02:04.

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

:02:05.:02:10.

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

:02:11.:02:14.

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

:02:15.:02:19.

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

:02:20.:02:28.

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

:02:29.:02:33.

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

:02:34.:02:37.

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

:02:38.:02:44.

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

:02:45.:02:51.

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

:02:52.:02:55.

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

:02:56.:03:02.

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

:03:03.:03:08.

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

:03:09.:03:15.

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

:03:16.:03:23.

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

:03:24.:03:31.

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

:03:32.:03:37.

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

:03:38.:03:44.

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

:03:45.:03:49.

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

:03:50.:03:54.

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

:03:55.:04:00.

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

:04:01.:04:05.

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

:04:06.:04:09.

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

:04:10.:04:14.

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

:04:15.:04:22.

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

:04:23.:04:30.

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

:04:31.:04:34.

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

:04:35.:04:40.

Johnson is referring specifically to the Prime Minister talking about it

:04:41.:04:46.

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

:04:47.:04:51.

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

:04:52.:04:59.

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

:05:00.:05:04.

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

:05:05.:05:10.

unwillingness, especially from conservatives, to make an more

:05:11.:05:15.

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

:05:16.:05:21.

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

:05:22.:05:26.

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

:05:27.:05:31.

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

:05:32.:05:36.

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

:05:37.:05:40.

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

:05:41.:05:47.

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

:05:48.:05:54.

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

:05:55.:05:57.

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

:05:58.:06:05.

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

:06:06.:06:10.

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

:06:11.:06:19.

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

:06:20.:06:25.

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

:06:26.:06:29.

talk about the free movement of workers, environmental protection,

:06:30.:06:34.

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

:06:35.:06:39.

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

:06:40.:06:43.

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

:06:44.:06:49.

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

:06:50.:06:56.

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

:06:57.:07:01.

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

:07:02.:07:04.

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

:07:05.:07:10.

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

:07:11.:07:22.

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

:07:23.:07:32.

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

:07:33.:07:37.

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

:07:38.:07:42.

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

:07:43.:07:49.

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

:07:50.:07:55.

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

:07:56.:08:01.

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

:08:02.:08:09.

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

:08:10.:08:16.

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

:08:17.:08:26.

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

:08:27.:08:32.

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

:08:33.:08:36.

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

:08:37.:08:45.

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

:08:46.:08:51.

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

:08:52.:08:54.

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

:08:55.:09:01.

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

:09:02.:09:06.

we are discussing freedom of information. The snoopers charter,

:09:07.:09:15.

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

:09:16.:09:21.

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

:09:22.:09:27.

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

:09:28.:09:35.

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

:09:36.:09:43.

surfed journalists but freedom of information, the public could

:09:44.:09:47.

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

:09:48.:09:53.

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

:09:54.:09:58.

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

:09:59.:10:04.

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

:10:05.:10:11.

bus of the Conservatives had undeclared in local campaign

:10:12.:10:13.

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

:10:14.:10:19.

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

:10:20.:10:24.

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

:10:25.:10:28.

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

:10:29.:10:33.

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

:10:34.:10:39.

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

:10:40.:10:44.

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

:10:45.:10:51.

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

:10:52.:10:55.

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

:10:56.:10:59.

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

:11:00.:11:04.

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

:11:05.:11:10.

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

:11:11.:11:14.

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

:11:15.:11:20.

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

:11:21.:11:25.

they could be included. The Conservatives have put out a

:11:26.:11:30.

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

:11:31.:11:33.

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

:11:34.:11:44.

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

:11:45.:11:51.

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

:11:52.:11:57.

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

:11:58.:12:04.

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

:12:05.:12:08.

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

:12:09.:12:16.

with the biggest online delivery sell all company called Amazon,

:12:17.:12:24.

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

:12:25.:12:28.

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

:12:29.:12:31.

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

:12:32.:12:34.

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

:12:35.:12:42.

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

:12:43.:12:49.

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

:12:50.:12:59.

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

:13:00.:13:03.

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

:13:04.:13:08.

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

:13:09.:13:12.

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

:13:13.:13:18.

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

:13:19.:13:29.

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

:13:30.:13:39.

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

:13:40.:13:44.

supporting actor. And their relationship with the lead actor and

:13:45.:13:47.

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

:13:48.:13:53.

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

:13:54.:13:59.

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

:14:00.:14:01.

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

:14:02.:14:08.

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

:14:09.:14:13.

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

:14:14.:14:20.

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

:14:21.:14:24.

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

:14:25.:14:29.

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

:14:30.:14:36.

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

:14:37.:14:41.

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

:14:42.:14:46.

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

:14:47.:14:51.

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

:14:52.:15:01.

been great to have you in to look at the headlines. Stay with us on BBC
