our look ahead to what the papers With me are Tony Grew, the political

reporter and commentator, and Caroline Frost, the Entertainment

Editor of the Huffington Post. The Express leads on

:00:33.:00:34.

Buckingham Palace's disquiet after the Queen was accused of

:00:35.:00:36.

favouring Britain leaving the EU. The row between

the Sun newspaper and the palace is It says the justice secretary

of thousands of sensitive documents that could

damage the so-called Islamic State. The names of several British Jihadis

:00:53.:00:58.

are believed to be included amongst Sir George Martin and

:00:59.:01:01.

Sir Paul McCartney are pictured in the Guardian, following the

producer's death at the age of 90. Its main story is the defeat

of the government's plan to relax The Independent also carries

in rates is widely expected. And

the jail terms given to five members of the gang behind the Hatton Garden

diamond heist feature in the Metro. The sentences of up to seven

:01:42.:01:44.

years are described as "soft". The super sleuths in Fleet Street.

:01:45.:01:56.

They reckon they've got their man, Michael Gove! The Daily Telegraph

:01:57.:02:02.

imply that the justice secretary was the leak for this notorious Sun

:02:03.:02:08.

front-page yesterday. There is a serious point. The government

:02:09.:02:11.

operates because the Queen can express her views to her trusted

:02:12.:02:17.

ministers. The fact that we don't know the Queen's view on anything

:02:18.:02:24.

shows how respectful vat system has been. Clearly a few words have been

:02:25.:02:29.

said about the Queen's perceived view. It is a mess. Although Michael

:02:30.:02:42.

Gove... You will have to prove it was Michael Gove, for him to be in a

:02:43.:02:45.

position where you may have to resign, but it is notable that the

:02:46.:02:50.

palace has complained to the press regulator. This is significant and

:02:51.:02:55.

serious breach. If it is proved he was the source of the leak, and if

:02:56.:03:01.

he is denying it -- and he is denying it, do you think this is a

:03:02.:03:04.

resigning matter? Absolutely. This is a serious matter. If compromised

:03:05.:03:11.

the Queen's position, implied the monarchy is taking sides in a debate

:03:12.:03:14.

that's actually about the British people deciding and the entire

:03:15.:03:18.

structure is about that. The Prime Minister of our country has an

:03:19.:03:21.

hour-long meeting with the Queen once a week during term time. Those

:03:22.:03:26.

are never leaked. No Prime Minister has ever said the Queen said this,

:03:27.:03:32.

the Queen said that. In private she should be able to express her views.

:03:33.:03:38.

Caroline, everyone on both sides will be passing the words of

:03:39.:03:43.

influential people when it comes to this very difficult question of

:03:44.:03:47.

whether we should stay in or out. The Queen is as influential as they

:03:48.:03:51.

come and she gave a speech in Berlin a few months ago I think it was

:03:52.:03:56.

where some suggested that she was in favour of the EU. Its William Davies

:03:57.:04:01.

speech a few weeks ago where it showed in some people's view that he

:04:02.:04:05.

was in favour of the EU as well. This will go on for four months!

:04:06.:04:09.

Then we complain if Prince William and his wife tuck themselves away.

:04:10.:04:16.

Because the minute they say a word... Prince Charles as we know

:04:17.:04:22.

has never been very forthcoming and he has been the beneficiary of much

:04:23.:04:29.

stamping of glasses, but what happens is people looking for

:04:30.:04:33.

something... This could have been an anecdote, a Chinese whisper. It was

:04:34.:04:39.

also five years ago. What were you thinking about the referendum five

:04:40.:04:44.

years ago? But this is it and it has been jumped upon. This can only come

:04:45.:04:52.

back to bite them. The Sun is now trying to bring the Clegg equation.

:04:53.:05:02.

I am not saying the Sun are pro Brexit but they aren't mentioning

:05:03.:05:05.

Michael Gove in the same way that other newspapers are. They've taken

:05:06.:05:10.

a picture of her Majesty in her most combat if -- unimpressed stage. If

:05:11.:05:25.

we pull out to show the full front-page, you've got allegedly the

:05:26.:05:29.

Queen, angry at Europe, and then this story at the bottom. It is

:05:30.:05:40.

interesting you say... I don't think Rupert Murdoch has come out on

:05:41.:05:45.

either side so far. This front page from the Sun suggests he might be

:05:46.:05:50.

leaning that way. Obviously you are jumping the gun on a man who hasn't

:05:51.:05:58.

made his impressions felt. However, incidentally Michael Gove was a

:05:59.:06:01.

guest at Rupert Murdoch's wedding this weekend. As if we needed an

:06:02.:06:07.

extra element in the conspiracy! But the Sun are building on the story of

:06:08.:06:14.

the Queen's suppose that feelings. They aren't exactly backing off and

:06:15.:06:20.

they are standing by it. They aren't obviously going to be backpedalling

:06:21.:06:25.

all of a sudden. I think the problem for the Sun and the watchdog is that

:06:26.:06:35.

it is the link that their sources made of an event back in 2011 and a

:06:36.:06:41.

referendum taking place in four months time. And nothing explicit

:06:42.:06:46.

has been said. When the queen visited Germany she said it is bad

:06:47.:06:53.

if you are in position out. I can't think of a more bland phrase. When

:06:54.:06:56.

Prince William went to the Foreign Office he said we have always been

:06:57.:07:01.

an outward looking nation and that's been interpreted as a dramatic

:07:02.:07:09.

intervention in the referendum. But what else would you say if you are

:07:10.:07:13.

visiting the Foreign Office? It is a desperate attempt to bring the royal

:07:14.:07:19.

family into this argument. The front page of the Times. Stephen Hawking.

:07:20.:07:27.

Leeds 150 scientist against the Brexit. They are all coming out. We

:07:28.:07:33.

have the military top brass little while ago and now we've moved on to

:07:34.:07:37.

the scientists. We do wonder what's next. Builders for Brexit. We will

:07:38.:07:46.

see more of this. You're counting down. More than 100 days. Is anyone

:07:47.:07:54.

going to be swayed by that? Stephen Hawking, royal society scientist...

:07:55.:07:59.

They only have to reach one section of society. If a bunch of

:08:00.:08:03.

scientists, science students, people in technology, certain areas of

:08:04.:08:07.

business, if that captures one group of people than they've done their

:08:08.:08:11.

job, then they move onto the military, the builders other

:08:12.:08:14.

sectors. If we've got 100 days of people queueing up to not be for

:08:15.:08:20.

Brexit, then they are going to have to fight... Everytime this happen

:08:21.:08:24.

the pro Brexit people are going to have to find something equally

:08:25.:08:27.

proportionate to come out with. So it is kind of doing a bit of a

:08:28.:08:34.

spoken campaign. What the argument Stephen Hawking has been made? As a

:08:35.:08:43.

scientist, why are? -- why? Explained the front-page! It is to

:08:44.:08:51.

do with the grants and cooperation with scientists across the EU. That

:08:52.:08:55.

lovely thing of shared knowledge being better for everyone? This is

:08:56.:09:04.

all very nice, Stephen Hawking and a certain section of society, but

:09:05.:09:09.

that's what makes the Sun's page yesterday in Patfull. If there's one

:09:10.:09:15.

person on the country who is influential it is the Queen. --

:09:16.:09:23.

impactful. Millions of readers being told by a paper that the Queen wants

:09:24.:09:27.

to leave. Which is why the palace has been so vehement in its denial.

:09:28.:09:35.

This is from the same company, so this is much tamer. This is Mr

:09:36.:09:43.

Murdoch keeping us all on the edge of our seats. Let's hope he doesn't

:09:44.:09:48.

get splinters sitting on that fence. The Times. Thousands of secret ISIS

:09:49.:09:57.

recruit leaked. Apparently the security services are examining

:09:58.:10:00.

files, 22,000 fighters and the details. The documents reveal that

:10:01.:10:05.

ISIS has set up a human resources centre that requires a 23 sections

:10:06.:10:12.

survey, giving names, birth dates, nationalities, blood types.

:10:13.:10:16.

Respective members were asked to choose between being a suicide

:10:17.:10:19.

bomber, a soldier and other role, and detail any other jihadist

:10:20.:10:25.

experience. It is interesting HR departments in terrorist

:10:26.:10:28.

organisations have the same questions as any other organisation!

:10:29.:10:31.

But what is interesting is they've elected all of this data and the

:10:32.:10:34.

surgery services have gotten hold of it. That's a big blow for them as it

:10:35.:10:40.

means we have an idea of whether fighters are coming from. If it is

:10:41.:10:43.

real then it's a significant breakthrough. A huge window on to

:10:44.:10:51.

the way that this group operates. It highlights how sophisticated they

:10:52.:10:55.

are. It isn't just a bunch of people firing aimlessly into the sky. They

:10:56.:11:02.

know what bear doing. Absolutely. It seeks to model itself on the style

:11:03.:11:05.

of Western governments that it aims to overthrow. What does Alami, as

:11:06.:11:11.

much as I am comforted by seeing this breach, I'm not sure I am

:11:12.:11:16.

comforted by seeing it publicised on our side like this. I know it is a

:11:17.:11:23.

morale booster, but I am happy the less I know because I like to think

:11:24.:11:26.

that people smarter than me with wide reaching the less I know

:11:27.:11:29.

because I like to think that people smarter than me with wide reaching

:11:30.:11:31.

resources are sitting as applicable, rather than necessarily need looking

:11:32.:11:33.

at this list and thinking, that's interesting! The headlines, the

:11:34.:11:41.

files leaked, is this leaked to the security services all leaked to the

:11:42.:11:46.

press? I will be frank, it is unclear. From the way the story is

:11:47.:11:51.

written it is unclear. It is also worth pointing out that only a small

:11:52.:11:54.

portion of cash is thought to have come through so far. This suspicion

:11:55.:12:03.

is that there is more to come. Tory rebels kill off PM plan for Sunday

:12:04.:12:07.

trading. You spent the whole day in the lobby at the Commons reporting

:12:08.:12:10.

on this. I know you are happy man about it. I want you to share your

:12:11.:12:17.

enthusiasm. I am never a happy when I am watching MPs at work! I did go

:12:18.:12:20.

to the toilet and have a meal. I didn't spend the entire time there,

:12:21.:12:24.

but I did see the bulk of the debate. If you know what's going on,

:12:25.:12:28.

if you know who the players are, the Commons is endlessly fascinating. So

:12:29.:12:33.

I am watching the try minister's bagman coming, tap and MP on the

:12:34.:12:39.

shoulder and take him out for a meal. At one point the Prime

:12:40.:12:42.

Minister went and sat by the main rebel and was showing him something

:12:43.:12:49.

on her phone. Basically trying to get these people, their own MPs, not

:12:50.:12:53.

to rebel. And of course they did rebel in numbers. The first defeat

:12:54.:13:01.

for this government. Also, it is hard to understand why the Prime

:13:02.:13:06.

Minister expanded such a huge amount of political capital on what is a

:13:07.:13:09.

relatively minor change to the way in which Sunday trading is

:13:10.:13:12.

administered, whether that is done by local counties or central

:13:13.:13:16.

government. So it has been a day of high drama but a puzzling day as

:13:17.:13:23.

well. The finger is being pointed at the Scottish nationals by David

:13:24.:13:30.

Cameron couldn't keep his own MPs in line. Some decided they would rebel

:13:31.:13:38.

against this. Absolutely. Sometimes, I know they say 18 is at its weakest

:13:39.:13:44.

after it has scored a goal, I'm not suggesting David Cameron's

:13:45.:13:47.

negotiations on Europe were successful but he has been at that

:13:48.:13:57.

end of the pitch. -- is a. There's been a bit going on behind the back

:13:58.:14:00.

doors at Westminster and this is the result. I've witnessed no dribbling

:14:01.:14:05.

in corridors! I want to make that clear. Metaphor finished. We will

:14:06.:14:11.

end with the Daily Mail. One of many papers that has Sir George Martin on

:14:12.:14:18.

the front page. He has been described as the fifth Beetle. As

:14:19.:14:25.

soon as this news was broken and there were two incredible personal

:14:26.:14:30.

tributes from Ringo Starr and Paul McCartney. As you quoted earlier, he

:14:31.:14:36.

said he was not only the most musical but also the most

:14:37.:14:39.

intelligent and nicest man he had ever come across. Paul McCartney

:14:40.:14:43.

presumably has met a lot of talented people. What he got lucky very

:14:44.:14:47.

young. He turned up as a young 20-year-old at Abbey Road when

:14:48.:14:53.

George Martin entered his life. George Martin was in his late 30s

:14:54.:14:57.

when he took on The Beatles wrote that he was able to mental them and

:14:58.:15:00.

he was one of the few people they listen to. I will use this moment

:15:01.:15:06.

just to say that 15 years ago I watched the TV series, George

:15:07.:15:11.

Martin, a 3-part series. It is on YouTube and I am hoping the BBC will

:15:12.:15:16.

repeat it. I learnt more about music in that 3-part series hosted by

:15:17.:15:19.

George Martin that I have ever learnt before. Very interesting. But

:15:20.:15:23.

it wasn't just The Beatles Row. Elton John, Elvis Costello.

:15:24.:15:33.

I was going to say that, there are few people falling you can say that

:15:34.:15:41.

their work speaks of himself, and that is George Martin's legacy. You

:15:42.:15:45.

will not need to explain to future generations why he was a genius, you

:15:46.:15:50.

can do is put on his music, and it will be self-explanatory. 700

:15:51.:15:58.

singles, extraordinary. It is, and he has sadly left us. It has been

:15:59.:16:01.

great having you in, looking at some of the stories behind the headlines.

:16:02.:16:08.

Many thanks. If you are Chelsea fan, look away now. Sportsday is coming

:16:09.:16:11.

up.
