pond. Oates had already qualified for the Rio de Janeiro Olympics. And

:00:00.:00:00.

that is all from sports day. Coming up, the papers.

:00:00.:00:14.

Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be

:00:15.:00:17.

With me are Liam Halligan, who's an Economics Commentator

:00:18.:00:20.

at the Telegraph and the Political Commentator, Ayesha Hazarika.

:00:21.:00:23.

The front pages are dominated by one story -

:00:24.:00:34.

A single image takes the whole of the Metro's front page.

:00:35.:00:40.

The Mirror also dedicates a full page to the american pop singer

:00:41.:00:43.

The 'i' calls him a musical colossus.

:00:44.:00:52.

of his famous lyrics - 'but life is just a party,

:00:53.:00:57.

The Daily Mail leads with the Queen's 90th

:00:58.:01:00.

The Times says President Obama will appeal to voters in the UK

:01:01.:01:05.

to stay within the EU, as he visits London for the last

:01:06.:01:07.

Let's begin and really only one place to begin, with the death of

:01:08.:01:22.

Prince. Let's start with the Sun. A purple hue on the front page of the

:01:23.:01:28.

Sun, it makes a grey front page. Prince dies on Queen's birthday. I

:01:29.:01:33.

am such a massive fan, I am devastated. Prince was the first gig

:01:34.:01:37.

I ever saw up in Glasgow back on the day had he was the last gig I ever

:01:38.:01:41.

went to as well two years ago, I was lucky enough to go to a very

:01:42.:01:45.

intimate gig he did at a concealed at the hippodrome in Leicester

:01:46.:01:48.

Square, and it was a tiny gig and it was mind blowing. The guy was such a

:01:49.:01:54.

showman and he was there with his all girl band and he still had all

:01:55.:01:58.

the move said he was just a phenomenal performer. He was

:01:59.:02:02.

beautiful, he was talented, he was exquisite, he was very different as

:02:03.:02:06.

well. But it is a huge force. He was still working and churning out the

:02:07.:02:11.

albums, still very active in his career. This comes as a massive

:02:12.:02:15.

shock. It is definitely a massive shock. He was 57 but a five foot to

:02:16.:02:24.

political giant. On several Grammys, an Oscar. I am of a slightly older

:02:25.:02:29.

vintage so I was around when purple rain was ubiquitous, I always took

:02:30.:02:34.

more interest with respect, in the influences that came together to

:02:35.:02:40.

form Prince, Santana, Miles Davis, Jimi Hendrix of course. James Brown.

:02:41.:02:45.

Earth wind and Fire. He combined all of that. He was an extremely good

:02:46.:02:50.

guitarist, it was not all just for sure. I'd also a grey dancer. I just

:02:51.:02:55.

hope kids today realises is a big moment. If we turn to the I, and

:02:56.:03:02.

other picture dominating the front page, as you have just said, Liam,

:03:03.:03:08.

100 million records sold, several Grammys. The life of a musical

:03:09.:03:13.

colossus. That is interesting because he was this fantastic

:03:14.:03:17.

showman that you talk about, but he was as you said, he played guitar,

:03:18.:03:22.

he played drums, he played instruments, he produced his music.

:03:23.:03:27.

He wrote it. He wrote the bangles manic Monday. Shakoor can, feel for

:03:28.:03:34.

you. The Sinead O'Connor anthem, I think appear to you. He did it all.

:03:35.:03:41.

And some of his albums, some of his tracks, he played all of the

:03:42.:03:45.

instruments. He was just talented across all of the entire sweep of

:03:46.:03:48.

musical production, performance, putting on a show, and I think he

:03:49.:03:54.

pushed the barriers as well as a young black man in the music

:03:55.:03:59.

industry, the kind of push the boundaries in terms of sexuality,

:04:00.:04:02.

racial equality, he was a genuinely shape shifting, envelope pushing

:04:03.:04:08.

iconic artist. As a result he is on the front page of the daily Mirror,

:04:09.:04:14.

Prince dead at 57. A very striking image of him there. Repeating what

:04:15.:04:19.

we have been saying, that his death has shocked the world. Also at the

:04:20.:04:26.

top corner, victory. It says praise for Miller as the Tories part

:04:27.:04:31.

nationalise British Steel. I am not sure The Mirror can take full

:04:32.:04:35.

responsibility for this, but what is all this about? This is a hugely

:04:36.:04:40.

important study, not just to the future of the British Steel industry

:04:41.:04:45.

but also our industrial heritage. In the 15,000 people who work for Tater

:04:46.:04:51.

steal at Port Talbot and Scunthorpe. The government has indicated, and it

:04:52.:04:54.

is still an indication, that they are prepared to put in ?1 billion to

:04:55.:05:00.

buy 25% to sweeten the deal for an incoming investor, there will also

:05:01.:05:05.

be a deal done about pension liabilities which are vital

:05:06.:05:10.

important. Not just for existing workers but former workers. The

:05:11.:05:14.

company is losing ?1 million per day and something needs to happen. I

:05:15.:05:18.

think the politics of this are quite vivid, the Tories reaching for

:05:19.:05:22.

renationalisation, even though ideological and a lot of people find

:05:23.:05:27.

that difficult to stomach. I do wonder how viable is this industry

:05:28.:05:32.

while China is making steel at the price it is? It is very difficult,

:05:33.:05:36.

and this is an industry which has suffered decline for a long time. I

:05:37.:05:41.

remember going up when Ravenscraig closed, it was an industry that has

:05:42.:05:45.

a lot of difficulties. I am glad the government has made this move, but

:05:46.:05:50.

one worries about how viable this industry will be for the future, in

:05:51.:05:56.

these areas. And it will, for the workers and families, they will be

:05:57.:06:00.

pleased about it, but we do need a more long-term industrial strategy

:06:01.:06:03.

which is going to look at how we can try and sustain some of these

:06:04.:06:07.

industries or if we can sustain, how do we sort of move to different

:06:08.:06:11.

industries as well? Because once these industries go it is very hard

:06:12.:06:15.

for other jobs to come back and replace them and it is not just the

:06:16.:06:19.

immediate job losses, it is what happens to the next generation as

:06:20.:06:23.

well. There is a very deep social cost to pay for these industries

:06:24.:06:27.

going under. Energy costs are very high in the UK for all sorts of

:06:28.:06:34.

reasons, and also innovation. There are highly specialised steelmakers

:06:35.:06:38.

in Britain, in Sheffield, and I think some of the other chef --

:06:39.:06:42.

other steelmakers must take a leaf out of that book. We're building

:06:43.:06:47.

railways and power stations, we still need steel. Let's turn to the

:06:48.:06:51.

Times, a picture of Prince but the different headline. Don't turn away

:06:52.:06:56.

from EU, Obama tells Britain. This is President Barack Obama has

:06:57.:07:02.

arrived in Britain. Will this make a difference? It will make a political

:07:03.:07:05.

difference in that many of those calling for exit will be really

:07:06.:07:09.

upset. This is President Barack Obama's last planned visit, of

:07:10.:07:13.

course the US election is in November and he may make another one

:07:14.:07:16.

but we don't know. I wanted to mention a Tory MP, Portsmouth MP who

:07:17.:07:22.

is the Armed Forces Minister, she has written a really audacious and

:07:23.:07:27.

redoubtable letter to the seven former US Treasury Secretary 's. The

:07:28.:07:31.

equivalent of our Chancellor of the Exchequer 's, really average people

:07:32.:07:36.

like Larry Summers, Robert Rubin, big political beasts. They have said

:07:37.:07:42.

that the UK should ignore British exit and stay in the EU. She said

:07:43.:07:46.

why don't you, to use that American phrase, but out. She has some really

:07:47.:07:50.

interesting things to say in the letter. If you are ever prepared to

:07:51.:07:54.

allow your grey nation to give up its money and Borders and have the

:07:55.:07:58.

creation of your laws and judgments to another power I will happily

:07:59.:08:05.

re-examine your view. I don't think it is unreasonable for President

:08:06.:08:09.

Barack Obama you have a view, or Angela Merkel, it is really big.

:08:10.:08:14.

Britain and America have an important, deep strategic

:08:15.:08:17.

relationship. This is a big decision not just for us but it will have a

:08:18.:08:21.

geopolitical ramifications and the sort of comeback to any worse, look,

:08:22.:08:26.

the truth is it is all right for you saying you Americans but out of our

:08:27.:08:30.

stuff, but we are happy commentating on Trump and the American elections,

:08:31.:08:37.

10p, so these are big things. It would be grey if Prince Philip comes

:08:38.:08:42.

in on Trump. Filled versus Trump. Maybe Trump would be his match!

:08:43.:08:46.

President Barack Obama has had a hard time from Congress, but he is

:08:47.:08:51.

still a political icon for many people in this country. His

:08:52.:08:54.

intervention will still pack a big punch. We've hardly got any time,

:08:55.:08:58.

you mentioned Prince Philip but it is the Queen who make the front page

:08:59.:09:02.

of the Daily Express. She has dominated front pages for the last

:09:03.:09:06.

three days. She has and a lot of people will look at her and think,

:09:07.:09:12.

at 90, her commitment, she became the Queen of such a young age when

:09:13.:09:16.

her husband died, when her father died, and she really has dedicated

:09:17.:09:19.

her entire adult life to public service. I understand lots of people

:09:20.:09:23.

have issues with how long should the Royal family go on for, but I think

:09:24.:09:30.

when she turned 98 is right to acknowledge the public service she

:09:31.:09:34.

has done. It has taken a Prince to knock off the front pages but not

:09:35.:09:38.

the one she thought. That is for papers denied. Before you go these

:09:39.:09:42.

front pages have come in while we have been on air. The Telegraph has

:09:43.:09:47.

an exclusive with President Barack Obama, seeing that the US sacrifice

:09:48.:09:51.

in the Second World War made America has a stake in the referendum

:09:52.:09:55.

debate. But forget all the front pages online on the BBC News website

:09:56.:09:59.

where you can read a detailed view -- review of the papers. It is all/

:10:00.:10:08.

papers. And you can see I was with each night's edition of the papers

:10:09.:10:12.

published shortly after we finish. Thank you both. Thanks for being

:10:13.:10:16.

with us. Good to talk to you. Goodbye.

:10:17.:10:27.

Good evening. It has been a largely quiet and Friday with decent spells

:10:28.:10:33.

of sunshine. The weather behaved itself impeccably for the Queen 's

:10:34.:10:36.

90th birthday at Windsor Castle, clouding over a little towards the

:10:37.:10:38.

end of the day.
