Coming up next, we look at Mark Kermode's thumbs up or otherwise in

The Film Review. Hello and welcome to

:00:00.:00:17.

our look ahead to what the papers With me are the journalist

:00:18.:00:19.

and political analyst Mina Al-Oraibi and Laura Hughes,

:00:20.:00:26.

political correspondent The Sunday Telegraph leads with

:00:27.:00:29.

Boris Johnson attacking what he call's David Cameron's Agents

:00:30.:00:36.

of Fear in the ongoing EU The Sunday Times has the same story

:00:37.:00:39.

plus a warning from the Justice Secretary, Michael Gove that

:00:40.:00:45.

the EU "fuels terror and Fascism". The Independent has an exclusive

:00:46.:00:49.

on what it says is a cover-up of the treatment

:00:50.:00:52.

of terror suspects in the UK. "NHS to harvest babies' organs" is

:00:53.:00:56.

the rather alarming headline The Sunday Express says Britannia

:00:57.:01:01.

will no longer rule the waves claiming the EU wants to

:01:02.:01:07.

take charge of the UK coastguard as No surprise as Europe once again is

:01:08.:01:24.

the dominant theme in the papers. This claim by Michael Gove as a

:01:25.:01:30.

campaigner for leaving the EU, that the EU fuels terror and fascism, is

:01:31.:01:35.

pretty striking. This is Michael Gove's first interview with the

:01:36.:01:39.

newspaper, as it announces that we should be voting to leave the EU. It

:01:40.:01:46.

says that on the one hand it is chilling terror because it is not

:01:47.:01:52.

allowing Britain to make decisions about how its spies can act, et

:01:53.:01:58.

cetera, particularly to do with the European Court of justice. He says

:01:59.:02:01.

we need to not be under its thumb any more. This comes at the same

:02:02.:02:05.

time as Boris Johnson is also speaking. He said, the power to take

:02:06.:02:13.

decisions about counter-terrorist surveillance is being taken away

:02:14.:02:17.

from the EU. In effect, the UK has kept quite a lot of its powers.

:02:18.:02:21.

Opting out of some of the policing roles. Yes. Some of those who have

:02:22.:02:27.

been detained on terrorist charges have used European courts to avoid

:02:28.:02:37.

being deported. We did have one famous case, where a man was able to

:02:38.:02:42.

delay being deported to the US. But there is no causality. Michael Gove

:02:43.:02:47.

is just saying that the far right is stronger across the continent than

:02:48.:02:53.

at any time since the 60s. That is true, and worrying, but it doesn't

:02:54.:03:00.

explain how it England leads the EU it will suddenly some house swing

:03:01.:03:08.

left. We had Liam Fox a couple of days ago saying that the EU hasn't

:03:09.:03:11.

done a particularly good job in stopping the spread of extremism,

:03:12.:03:19.

with people like Jean-Claude Juncker saying that it used to be the source

:03:20.:03:22.

of peace on the continent. But this is quite a challenge to the position

:03:23.:03:29.

of Theresa May, the Home Secretary. It is interesting as well in the

:03:30.:03:32.

context of this project fear. These characters have been accusing the

:03:33.:03:37.

government of scaring people, but so is this. This isn't just about

:03:38.:03:42.

sovereignty, this is now about security. You will be safer if we

:03:43.:03:47.

leave the EU. I would say this is also scaremongering, and Michael

:03:48.:03:53.

Gove has contradicted Theresa May and is undermining his own

:03:54.:03:57.

government. It raises an interesting question about what happens after

:03:58.:04:03.

the referendum. Effectively, suggesting that a document put out

:04:04.:04:11.

by the Home Office is a dodgy dossier, undermining those

:04:12.:04:14.

supporting stain. Now we have restaurants and effectively

:04:15.:04:18.

attacking David Cameron and people in Downing Street saying that they

:04:19.:04:21.

were somehow responsible for John Longworth being suspended because he

:04:22.:04:29.

had spoken out in favour of Brexit. I think there will be a reshuffle

:04:30.:04:34.

after the referendum, but I think Michael Gove is also looking at the

:04:35.:04:38.

possibility that Boris Johnson runs for the leadership, and he has put

:04:39.:04:45.

all his eggs in that basket now. You think he has transferred his loyalty

:04:46.:04:50.

from David Cameron, effectively? Yes. In this article says that Boris

:04:51.:04:53.

Johnson is going to war with David Cameron. Threatening people's

:04:54.:04:58.

safety, that is the number-1 responsibility of the government, so

:04:59.:05:02.

to say that what they want to do is undermining safety is crossing a

:05:03.:05:08.

line that is not often crossed. People who sit in David Cameron's

:05:09.:05:12.

cabinet next Theresa May and David Cameron... A legacy of bitterness

:05:13.:05:16.

out of this could be pretty powerful. Yes, are they putting

:05:17.:05:21.

their eggs in the basket is about future leadership. This is also the

:05:22.:05:28.

week that the dodgy dossier that Iain Duncan Smith said, and David

:05:29.:05:33.

Cameron making a speech at Chatham House earlier saying that all

:05:34.:05:39.

alternatives to the EU would be detrimental. It really has been

:05:40.:05:43.

realigning of the Conservative Party. I mentioned John Longworth,

:05:44.:05:47.

and that is on the front page of the Sunday Telegraph. Is this conspiracy

:05:48.:05:54.

theory or is there something in this? A suggestion that Downing

:05:55.:06:03.

Street might have led the chairman of the PCC to do this. -- BCC. David

:06:04.:06:31.

Davis is calling from a full statement about the comments made or

:06:32.:06:34.

the suspension. It will be interesting to see how they

:06:35.:06:39.

respond. Are you surprised? IM. The fact that he gave the statement that

:06:40.:06:44.

in thinking personally that it would be better for Britain to get out of

:06:45.:06:50.

the EU, there are no personal views when you are the head of the British

:06:51.:06:56.

Chamber of Commerce. It is said to be part of the conversation, how

:06:57.:07:05.

people will decide to vote, but there has not been a denial that

:07:06.:07:08.

conversations were had with Downing Street about this. Certain members

:07:09.:07:13.

of the board may have certain ties with Downing Street, so they may

:07:14.:07:16.

have had conversations. Whether that led directly to him being pushed

:07:17.:07:22.

out,... In the end, the official position was that they are neutral,

:07:23.:07:28.

and he has broken that. At their annual conference in front of all

:07:29.:07:39.

these people. A lot of people were dumbfounded and angry about this.

:07:40.:07:46.

This has slightly gone against what his own members actually. And

:07:47.:07:49.

because they were divided, that is one of the reasons... Lets stay with

:07:50.:07:55.

Europe, I feel we will be saying that a lot. That is not an

:07:56.:08:01.

indication about what you should do in July, just staying with the

:08:02.:08:06.

story. Scotland hasn't got a wave from the story! EU seeks control of

:08:07.:08:13.

our coasts. Yes, this is the Sunday express telling us why the EU can be

:08:14.:08:18.

very dangerous for Britain. It is not clear what the plans are, but

:08:19.:08:22.

the story says the EU has drawn up plans to seize control of the

:08:23.:08:26.

British coastguard service as it creates a Europewide border force.

:08:27.:08:32.

The article explains that this is part of trying to keep Europe safe,

:08:33.:08:35.

dealing with the migrant crisis and the issues of refugees and so forth.

:08:36.:08:44.

But the article does say that the government would not be involved in

:08:45.:08:51.

anything... This should not actually apply to you. Is this a draft, a

:08:52.:08:57.

white paper? That is not clear. What is clear is that the Immigration

:08:58.:09:06.

Minister has said that we will support the strengthening of the

:09:07.:09:12.

borders, but Britain is not part of the Schengen agreement, and we will

:09:13.:09:19.

not be part of this. So, we have Russian jets buzzing about in the

:09:20.:09:25.

skies of Britain, and this wonderful image of Britannia on the inside of

:09:26.:09:33.

the Express. Casually defending our borders. With a rather docile lion.

:09:34.:09:41.

Looking to Britannia to rise up and project our stores growed up protect

:09:42.:09:48.

our shores -- to rise up and protect our shores. This is a kind of

:09:49.:09:53.

headline that would make me buy a paper in the morning. This is a good

:09:54.:10:00.

grabbing headline. The story is basically that doctors will approach

:10:01.:10:03.

mothers who have been told that their babies will not be able to

:10:04.:10:07.

survive once they are born, and to encourage them to carry that child

:10:08.:10:13.

so that the organs can be donated when the child is born. It is

:10:14.:10:16.

highlighting a massive issue that we have in this country, our lack of

:10:17.:10:22.

organ donors. 7000 people think the year on this list, three people

:10:23.:10:25.

dying today because they can't get organs. It is described as

:10:26.:10:33.

ghoulish... It is a difficult ethical... It is. Can you imagine

:10:34.:10:36.

approaching a parent who has just had this news. It will be stillborn

:10:37.:10:44.

or if not it may be severely disabled and won't live long, and

:10:45.:10:48.

then saying, if you take it to full term at least the organs can be

:10:49.:10:53.

used. I would suggest that the NHS may go towards encouraging that. It

:10:54.:10:58.

is saying they will be given advice on going ahead, so ordinarily they

:10:59.:11:04.

may be advised to abort the baby, but they are saying to go ahead so

:11:05.:11:07.

we can use the organs. It is interesting, because they are saying

:11:08.:11:12.

it could be a situation where the baby was all but dead, but they

:11:13.:11:17.

could find a way to keep it alive in the mother's uterus, in order to use

:11:18.:11:22.

the organs. Having said that, they say the numbers are striking. So far

:11:23.:11:27.

only 11 babies under two months in the last two years have actually

:11:28.:11:33.

been used for organ transplants. It illustrates what we are saying about

:11:34.:11:37.

how striking this is that NHS blood and transplant has issued a

:11:38.:11:40.

statement in the last few minutes, and it says it wants to reassure the

:11:41.:11:43.

public we have no way of knowing about anybody who is pregnant with a

:11:44.:11:49.

baby who won't survive. The only way we would find out about that is if

:11:50.:12:01.

the parents approached us about wanting to donate. There is no way

:12:02.:12:06.

that any of us would approach parents encouraging them to carry a

:12:07.:12:10.

baby to full term purely to use the organs. Fellow Mac they have spoken

:12:11.:12:15.

to one transplant surgeon, who says that they are looking at rolling it

:12:16.:12:18.

out as a viable source. We are running out of time, but let me give

:12:19.:12:23.

the last word to the story on the front of the Sunday Times. This is

:12:24.:12:32.

the new guidance has been offered to schools. They are worried our young

:12:33.:12:38.

people are using too many exclamation marks. They spend a lot

:12:39.:12:46.

of time on Facebook, text in, so... They said they were worried that too

:12:47.:12:52.

many are using it in text messages and social media. What

:12:53.:12:55.

seven-year-old is sending text messages? There is an exclamation

:12:56.:13:03.

mark in your voice! Thank you both very much, it was a pleasure to have

:13:04.:13:09.

you with us. That is just about it, thank you for your company this

:13:10.:13:12.

evening. We will have more news at the top of the hour. Now, The Film
