arrive. And we join the Rangers starting to deal with poachers in

:00:00.:00:13.

central Africa in Reporters in a few minutes' time. Hello and welcome to

:00:14.:00:19.

our look ahead at what the papers will be bringing tomorrow. With us

:00:20.:00:25.

political commentator Joe Phillips and Nigel Nelson. I feel like they

:00:26.:00:29.

have presented you with the Duff set of keepers to night. -- newspapers

:00:30.:00:40.

to night. They are dominated by the resignation of Iain Duncan Smith.

:00:41.:00:44.

The FT says it has caused a wider rest. IDS twists the knife is the

:00:45.:00:52.

take of the Independent. It is described as the biggest challenge

:00:53.:00:55.

to his forehead he in the six years in Downing Street. The I called it

:00:56.:01:06.

the explosive exit of a quiet man. The i thinks it is to do with the

:01:07.:01:14.

EU. The Guardian says the Conservatives descended into civil

:01:15.:01:20.

war as a succession of MPs came out in support for Mr Duncan Smith. We

:01:21.:01:26.

will start with the Guardian. Tories plunge into open warfare, angry MPs

:01:27.:01:31.

rushed to support Duncan Smith, ex-minister attacks deeply unfair

:01:32.:01:36.

jet. I suppose what we have had since last night's papers as hemp

:01:37.:01:40.

appearing on the Andrew Marr Show today. The reason the papers are a

:01:41.:01:47.

bit dull is we have had a lot more of the same. We knew kind of the

:01:48.:01:50.

position and the row is essentially it Iain Duncan Smith quit because of

:01:51.:01:57.

welfare cuts or is the real reason to do with Europe? That has been the

:01:58.:02:03.

road all day. We started this morning with the pensions secretary

:02:04.:02:07.

saying he did, Iain Duncan Smith takes to the airwaves and says he

:02:08.:02:12.

did not and it has gone on like that throughout the day. Downing Street

:02:13.:02:16.

is view is that Europe is at the bottom of all of this. He made a

:02:17.:02:24.

defence on the Andrew Marr show this morning about how he has been wedded

:02:25.:02:29.

to the reform but has left the project before it finished. He is

:02:30.:02:33.

also the person who introduced the bedroom tax. Spare room subsidy!

:02:34.:02:40.

Sorry, I am using tabloid terms. But also he resigned over something that

:02:41.:02:44.

had been abandoned anyway. You have to say he had tests too much. I have

:02:45.:02:50.

no doubt he actually had this conversion into the light of people

:02:51.:02:59.

cycle that trapped in the cycle. He has refused to move from this

:03:00.:03:03.

position. If he was really wedded to it he would see it through. We live

:03:04.:03:08.

a timing issue about when he chose to go. He could have gone the

:03:09.:03:13.

morning of the budget. He could have gone the previous week. The policy

:03:14.:03:19.

came out, the idea about disability cuts, the previous Friday. He did

:03:20.:03:23.

not moan about it then, the budget is unveiled, he does not say a word.

:03:24.:03:29.

Gets away with Thursday, Friday morning suddenly George Osborne is

:03:30.:03:32.

thinking of getting rid of the policy in the first place and soap

:03:33.:03:37.

suddenly it seemed like he quit not because they were introducing

:03:38.:03:40.

disability cuts but because they were getting rid of them. He was

:03:41.:03:44.

losing his last chance then to go out on the high moral ground of

:03:45.:03:50.

saying we must stop these cuts. Except maybe this idea that Tories

:03:51.:03:56.

are plunging into open warfare. Good it be that on reflection he just

:03:57.:04:00.

thought I have had enough? The way we are being governed, the

:04:01.:04:05.

stranglehold the Treasury has got on several departments, she just did

:04:06.:04:08.

not want to be part of it any more? Could that be at? He could say that.

:04:09.:04:13.

He could say he wants to spend time with his family. Isn't it a bit like

:04:14.:04:21.

when Tony Benn said he was getting down as an MP? You do not send a

:04:22.:04:27.

scathing letter like he did to the Prime Minister. That letter was the

:04:28.:04:31.

most bizarre thing. He said George Osborne and the Prime Minister art

:04:32.:04:35.

palace and cool. He could have stopped yet but he then went on and

:04:36.:04:40.

twisted the knife and said the great mantra we are all in it together is

:04:41.:04:46.

actually insincere and therefore it these two are untrustworthy. That is

:04:47.:04:50.

where he brings it back to Europe again. If they are not trustworthy

:04:51.:04:53.

on this at the untrustworthy on that? You have gone on to the

:04:54.:05:02.

Independent. This is not thrown together! The said he has twisted

:05:03.:05:08.

the knife. The attack accuses the government of dividing the crackdown

:05:09.:05:16.

and PM told not to be a dictator. That brings us on to a question

:05:17.:05:21.

asked last night. Why does this matter to people who don't watch

:05:22.:05:26.

every twist and turn of the story within Westminster? What should be

:05:27.:05:29.

read into this situation that should concern us as an select it? I think

:05:30.:05:35.

what we are getting cute as a character analysis from people who

:05:36.:05:39.

leave us which is why it matters to all of us, all voters, every citizen

:05:40.:05:45.

of the country. Cameron and George Osborne affect our lives hugely. You

:05:46.:05:49.

we have someone who has worked with them very closely, a senior minister

:05:50.:05:53.

and here's saying I am not sure you can trust them, I am not sure they

:05:54.:05:59.

are sincere. It might not be true but it is his opinion. That is

:06:00.:06:02.

assuming you think he is trustworthy and sincere. The way things have in

:06:03.:06:09.

going, the idea you get that kind of thing out into the open, quality

:06:10.:06:13.

debate if you like. You could call it a debate you could call it sheer

:06:14.:06:18.

poison. This is about Europe. It is about us, too. We need to know what

:06:19.:06:24.

our leaders are up to two make our own judgment about them. This is

:06:25.:06:30.

about him deciding to put the whole schism of Europe, we are back to

:06:31.:06:36.

1992 with John Major. It is worse. We were not going to leave Europe.

:06:37.:06:41.

You have now got this and what you are seeing is this is about George

:06:42.:06:46.

Osborne and Boris Johnson. It is nothing to do with trust but about

:06:47.:06:50.

who is going to leave the Conservative Party. That is why it

:06:51.:06:54.

matters to all of us, whoever does leave the country will affect

:06:55.:06:58.

everyone of us. How lovely to have a question that one asked, answered. I

:06:59.:07:07.

will go into politics. You will not, far too honest. The Daily Express

:07:08.:07:10.

has moved us onto the subject of the referendum. To list fight to free us

:07:11.:07:18.

from Brussels. The Daily Express is in favour of an exit from the EU for

:07:19.:07:23.

Britain but how much of the boost will it be for a lot of people who

:07:24.:07:26.

are not really sure what the EU referendum is all about, what

:07:27.:07:30.

difference will it make if Iain Duncan Smith is in welfare? I think

:07:31.:07:37.

it is in grave danger of turning people off. I have heard lots of

:07:38.:07:41.

April randomly talking about are you in or are you out or whatever but

:07:42.:07:46.

this constant noise from the Westminster village actually is

:07:47.:07:50.

beginning to become quite dangerous and what will happen is people will

:07:51.:07:55.

do the usual thing and say I do not understand it or know enough about

:07:56.:07:59.

it and therefore will not take part. Even before this weekend there were

:08:00.:08:04.

people saying and asking me on Twitter, where can I find a

:08:05.:08:09.

dispassionate, unbiased examination of the facts? On the BBC News

:08:10.:08:14.

website, actually. But within the debate, all the facts, if you can

:08:15.:08:21.

call them that, about what we get from being in Europe and what are on

:08:22.:08:25.

the outside are being blurred by argument. That is right and in the

:08:26.:08:31.

debate, this applies to the campaign on both sides, it is up here

:08:32.:08:36.

somewhere. The arguing about sovereignty and security and quite

:08:37.:08:39.

academic things. They have not come down to the deal basics of it and

:08:40.:08:44.

people want to know am I better off, is my job safer, what do we do about

:08:45.:08:51.

migration? These are the kind of issues and the campaigns because

:08:52.:08:54.

they already think we have that argument they have gone to something

:08:55.:08:58.

esoteric and it is leaving people behind. That is where you come back

:08:59.:09:04.

again to Iain Duncan Smith, that is why it matters, this is about Europe

:09:05.:09:09.

so you are going to end up with an even more debt and divisive

:09:10.:09:15.

argument. The Guardian is looking at the potential costs. According to

:09:16.:09:20.

the CBI saying Brexit could cost 100 Lyon pounds and nearly 1 million

:09:21.:09:29.

jobs. How have they worked that out? -- ?100 million. That is what we

:09:30.:09:34.

have been talking about. They have done analysis by price what are

:09:35.:09:39.

housed coopers, respected people, but everyone on every side will come

:09:40.:09:45.

up with Paul fear and analysis you. We have said before when they first

:09:46.:09:52.

announced it, there does need to be somewhere where this is what it will

:09:53.:09:57.

mean. This is not about real people. They are talking about it could cost

:09:58.:10:06.

?100 billion, may be. It could cost 10p! It is ridiculous, we do not

:10:07.:10:11.

know, the band a huge figures like this around but let's get down to

:10:12.:10:16.

what is in the pool 's pockets, the homes, the jobs, they are not doing

:10:17.:10:19.

that. This is the level of the debate. You are right it needs to

:10:20.:10:25.

come down to the high Street, what does it mean to you, depending on

:10:26.:10:29.

what job you do and where you work is your job going to be harder, it

:10:30.:10:33.

will it be more expensive to do stuff and go out? Some people

:10:34.:10:40.

individually will be better off by being out of Europe and some people

:10:41.:10:44.

will be better off I being in. Those people need to know who they are. At

:10:45.:10:50.

least they have got it out onto the economy which is what it should be

:10:51.:10:54.

about instead of a very unpleasant debate. Cabinet ministers quitting?

:10:55.:11:01.

And am pleasant debate about ministers quitting and refugees.

:11:02.:11:05.

That is when it becomes nasty. Migration is still a big issue.

:11:06.:11:11.

Let's go to have an up with the banners. History in Havana says the

:11:12.:11:16.

Huffington Post showing us eight picture of Barack and Michelle Obama

:11:17.:11:23.

arriving in the rain, sadly, in the Cuban capital for this historic

:11:24.:11:28.

visit. Hugely significant even if they do not decide on much and do

:11:29.:11:33.

not talk about human rights. It was 1928 apparently when Calvin Coolidge

:11:34.:11:38.

was the last American president who arrived on a battleship. Not by

:11:39.:11:44.

Lane. The force one suddenly touches down in Havana. I think the Banner

:11:45.:11:50.

probably has had the dubious edge npower and this will probably be

:11:51.:11:58.

quite important. It is symbolic. We sought deals yesterday with American

:11:59.:12:05.

hotel company is going in the. I am sure people will say it will become

:12:06.:12:09.

sanitised, like Miami, all those beautiful buildings and stuff but it

:12:10.:12:14.

has got to be better for the human Rees. A lot of the buildings are

:12:15.:12:18.

falling down in Havana? The word here is symbolic. Not a lot is going

:12:19.:12:24.

to happen but the mere fact it is happening is hugely important

:12:25.:12:28.

because they can build on it. The distrust they have two over, after

:12:29.:12:33.

all these years. This is the start. It has taken 88 years to get the.

:12:34.:12:38.

And if you wait until neither Castro or his brother at around you are

:12:39.:12:46.

starting something else. He has introduced if they can social

:12:47.:12:50.

reforms so people can run spot businesses for example. And things

:12:51.:12:53.

like telecoms and scheduled airlines and stuff like that so it is moving.

:12:54.:12:59.

It is an amazing is place. If you ever get a chance to go... For the

:13:00.:13:04.

moment the Financial Times, again it is connected to the EU. Rolls-Royce

:13:05.:13:10.

to create 350 Derby jobs as fears rise over at shift to Germany. This

:13:11.:13:17.

is to send the right kind of signal that the company is doing something

:13:18.:13:21.

here. This is terrifically good news for jobs in Derby, not the thousands

:13:22.:13:27.

they would hope for. Around 8000 people work for Rolls-Royce in Derby

:13:28.:13:30.

and it is being expanded because they'd is an increase in demand and

:13:31.:13:36.

production of the Airbus 1850 wide bodied jet. Did I sound convincing?

:13:37.:13:48.

You showed me you could read! There is concern that there was a test-bed

:13:49.:13:53.

that was partly funded by the German government, that it might go back to

:13:54.:13:58.

Germany and up course what the Derby plant really wants is the commitment

:13:59.:14:01.

they will be the test-bed for the next stage of this. Is there an

:14:02.:14:06.

implication that if written were not in the EU... ? These are the sorts

:14:07.:14:13.

of deals that will go on whether we are in or out. The geography is

:14:14.:14:19.

irrelevant? I do not think it is irrelevant but it both sides sleep

:14:20.:14:24.

on it as this is the advantage of being in Europe, we still get it

:14:25.:14:28.

whether we are in out, if this is all going on while are arguing about

:14:29.:14:34.

Europe, Q we have some corporation between us and Germany and it shows

:14:35.:14:37.

life does go on despite the referendum debate. The German

:14:38.:14:42.

government would take the money away if they bring it back to Germany.

:14:43.:14:50.

That is as from the papers in this hour. You can send us a tweet. Use

:14:51.:14:57.

the hashtag BBC papers. Add 11 we will have more on President Obama's

:14:58.:15:04.

historic visit to Huber. Coming up next, Reporters.
