Hello, and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers

:00:15.:00:17.

With me are the broadcaster John Stapleton and the former

:00:18.:00:21.

government minister and vote leave campaigner, Esther McVey.

:00:22.:00:22.

Tomorrow's front pages, starting with the Independent.

:00:23.:00:29.

The Independent Online has criticism from a group

:00:30.:00:31.

of academics that both sides in the EU referendum are making "misleading

:00:32.:00:34.

The Justice Secretary Michael Gove has written in the Times,

:00:35.:00:37.

claiming that "free-for-all" EU migration will put the NHS at risk.

:00:38.:00:40.

The uncertainty facing the High Street retailer BHS is

:00:41.:00:42.

the Guardian's top story, with reports that almost 11,000

:00:43.:00:44.

According to the Metro, girls as young as three are being sold by

:00:45.:00:59.

their families for less than ?400, following the earthquake in Nepal.

:01:00.:01:02.

"Green Belt Under Siege" is the headline in the i.

:01:03.:01:04.

The paper says the housing crisis is forcing ministers and planners

:01:05.:01:07.

The FT says Heathrow faces a funding "black hole" for transport

:01:08.:01:11.

links to the airport, if a third runway is given the go-ahead.

:01:12.:01:14.

New Day leads on scientists launching new research

:01:15.:01:16.

And the Express warns that a "snowy blast" will sweep across

:01:17.:01:20.

It has to be the referendum, where we begin, I mean. A picture of Boris

:01:21.:01:43.

Johnson and David Cameron. The verdict on the campaign. A coalition

:01:44.:01:47.

of academics criticised misleading and inaccurate claims. It is

:01:48.:01:52.

difficult to establish fact in this debate. It is a nightmare. The vast

:01:53.:02:02.

majority of the people are the world and. -- the bewildered. One person

:02:03.:02:15.

saying one thing and another saying and other. What these -- another.

:02:16.:02:25.

Academics have looked at these facts and they are just unsupported and

:02:26.:02:31.

untrue. Both sides have been criticised. George Osborne the other

:02:32.:02:37.

week and his forecast. How does he know? It can't even get his forecast

:02:38.:02:44.

right for next year! Project fear is on both sides. We will hear more

:02:45.:02:50.

about it. It is the predominant factor in this campaign. It is

:02:51.:02:57.

undermining faith in politicians. How sympathetic argue for voters

:02:58.:03:00.

trying to work their way through what is fact and fiction? -- are

:03:01.:03:07.

you. Some people will say I have heard too much and am turned off. We

:03:08.:03:13.

don't want that. Others will say, I have not got enough information,

:03:14.:03:19.

where do I get it? I think it will be, what do you feel, what do you

:03:20.:03:24.

believe, how do you think things will work going forward, and what

:03:25.:03:29.

can you see and believe around you? That is where Michael Gove in his

:03:30.:03:34.

article is taking it a step further when he says let's look at the

:03:35.:03:40.

immigration and the figures. We have net immigration at 300,000 and not a

:03:41.:03:44.

lot we can do to prevent anybody coming from Europe. Now it is

:03:45.:03:51.

expanding by another five countries, Macedonia, Serbia, Albania, Turkey,

:03:52.:03:57.

Turkey itself 35mm and they can all now come to the UK. -- 35 million.

:03:58.:04:04.

How will that impact the NHS, public services... In fairness, isn't an

:04:05.:04:13.

element of this Michael Gove and his campaign being on the back foot. And

:04:14.:04:22.

then once Johnson's comments about Obama. -- or is Johnson. Then he was

:04:23.:04:30.

saying he was anti- British because of his Kenyan background. That

:04:31.:04:34.

backfired on him. Even Nigel Farage said today that you should attack

:04:35.:04:40.

the ball, not the man. Some of these comments by Michael Gove in the

:04:41.:04:46.

papers are a retaliation to that, losing ground. It has been neck and

:04:47.:04:52.

neck so far and this could change it. I don't think it was because he

:04:53.:04:57.

thought they were losing ground. They would have planned out each

:04:58.:05:05.

week until the finale. It is a well articulated argument, actually. His

:05:06.:05:12.

first piece a while ago when he came out as a Brexter was like this.

:05:13.:05:19.

Barack Obama coming over here, what he had to say, we understand he

:05:20.:05:23.

should say what he wants, but that is what America wants. He once TTP,

:05:24.:05:30.

this trade agreement with Europe, by the way, he hasn't had one for 43

:05:31.:05:34.

years. We have two to 6 billion of trade either way and it works. --

:05:35.:05:42.

56. We don't need one. Isn't Michael Gove talking about a migration free

:05:43.:05:52.

far all? -- free-for-all. Isn't this project fear? With five countries

:05:53.:05:58.

coming in we now know we will have a much higher wage, the living wage,

:05:59.:06:03.

that will be a poll, and one of the countries with 75 million... Labour

:06:04.:06:09.

said there would only be tens of thousands coming in. 2 million

:06:10.:06:12.

people came in during the Tony Blair years. Most people are coming to

:06:13.:06:19.

work and that is good for the economy. That is a big question

:06:20.:06:24.

mark. I am still here. Sorry. (LAUGHING). I have kicked my shoes

:06:25.:06:30.

off under the desk. It is all fine. This is what we want. The Daily

:06:31.:06:35.

Telegraph, Boris Johnson's column, he has said that those who want to

:06:36.:06:43.

remain in the European Union are calling it too soon. It isn't all

:06:44.:06:49.

over. These comments could be long gone by then. It is definitely a

:06:50.:06:59.

long time. An eternity. Many people are undecided and there are many

:07:00.:07:04.

gaffs and fact still to be made. This particular thing about

:07:05.:07:13.

migration... Let's look at that. Michael Gove says the NHS would be

:07:14.:07:17.

at risk because even more people could come illegitimately and ask

:07:18.:07:23.

for treatment on this. And there are people with absolutely legitimate

:07:24.:07:25.

concerns about the impact of immigration on schools, on the

:07:26.:07:30.

health service, et cetera. The point I was about to make, as some people

:07:31.:07:38.

would acknowledge, you may not... Tell me and I will let you know.

:07:39.:07:44.

Economically they are a positive. They work and they pay taxes. I have

:07:45.:07:52.

a different way of looking at that. Going with the statistic that we

:07:53.:07:55.

don't know. When you know we have got net migration of nearly 300,000

:07:56.:08:01.

a year, that means we have a town or a city eager than Newcastle every

:08:02.:08:07.

year coming in. Where are those people carrying on to live? We are

:08:08.:08:21.

getting rid of green... Successive governments have not built enough

:08:22.:08:27.

houses. But with these extra people, of course it will have an

:08:28.:08:31.

impact on school places. The first time ever, well, not the first, but

:08:32.:08:34.

many people aren't getting their first choice of school. And the

:08:35.:08:42.

NHS... We have all these children here, not just child immigrants, but

:08:43.:08:47.

children whose parents are born in this country. Sorry. I can't get

:08:48.:08:55.

over a third of a million every year. It is huge. How will we

:08:56.:08:59.

assimilate those people and give them all of the public sector's

:09:00.:09:07.

help? I have my copy here. Thank you for doing my job. -- coffee. Both

:09:08.:09:15.

sides are using back to their advantage. Those who want to stay in

:09:16.:09:19.

the EU are saying, if we want to leave there would be a staffing

:09:20.:09:25.

crisis because so many staff come from the EU. The NHS is such a

:09:26.:09:31.

sensitive subject for Surman people it could swing it. That isn't quite

:09:32.:09:43.

true either. Doesn't matter whether it is the Philippines or India,

:09:44.:09:45.

those numbers have really tightened up. David Cameron won't want

:09:46.:09:51.

those... He is trying to get it down to tens of thousands, migration. You

:09:52.:09:56.

danced people, from the EU and then let the rest of the world do it. --

:09:57.:10:03.

don't stop. The difference is, if people are coming from Europe they

:10:04.:10:13.

come with a question mark on whether they have credentials. But if you

:10:14.:10:17.

come from outside you have a points system to say these people are

:10:18.:10:22.

coming to help the NHS. That is fair. Away from the referendum.

:10:23.:10:28.

Don't get six tomorrow. Junior doctors, Monday's paper, it is

:10:29.:10:33.

talking about Tuesday, not tomorrow, don't panic. -- sick. A two-day

:10:34.:10:38.

strike that is supposed to happen. The idea of a temporary or limited

:10:39.:10:44.

roll-out of a cross-party proposal that might have resented the strike

:10:45.:10:48.

has been dismissed by cross-party MPs. Blocked by the royal surgeons

:10:49.:11:00.

at the last minute. Jeremy Hunt is saying he wants to block it. Why not

:11:01.:11:04.

test it out on a trial basis and then get an independent body to

:11:05.:11:10.

decide whether or not it is working and fair? Whether the customers are

:11:11.:11:16.

concerned or benefiting. Jeremy Hunt has kicked that into touch. He said

:11:17.:11:20.

today that the system will be done actually. -- gradually. Problems

:11:21.:11:31.

will be sorted out later. Many are saying it is a pity. It is a

:11:32.:11:37.

compromise. It is a way out of a deadlock team to organisations and

:11:38.:11:45.

he has rejected it. Why would you reject it? Why not roll out a trial

:11:46.:11:56.

in this instance? To say it was because it was... That is the

:11:57.:11:59.

same... He says you will get it whether you like it or not. Eight

:12:00.:12:04.

slow roll-out would say whether it is working. -- a. Three years worth

:12:05.:12:10.

of talk has gone nowhere. You could say that BMA was very much starting

:12:11.:12:17.

to lose the support of the doctors because some of them were going in

:12:18.:12:22.

and not wanting to strike. The BMA are losing the support of the

:12:23.:12:25.

public. If they asked Labour to go in the back door to put an offer

:12:26.:12:33.

forward because they were losing the argument. I don't know what Jeremy

:12:34.:12:37.

Hunt said, but when I read the letter closely be work all possibles

:12:38.:12:47.

and maybes, no definitive answers. According to the Guardian,

:12:48.:12:51.

tomorrow's Guardian, a survey has been done to say that 78.4% of

:12:52.:12:56.

junior doctors questioned in that survey said they will strike. So it

:12:57.:13:02.

seems the overwhelming majority. The doctors I know came out in the first

:13:03.:13:07.

time that never again because they care about the patient's. Doctors

:13:08.:13:14.

are saying to not do emergency care... They didn't like that.

:13:15.:13:19.

Senior doctors said they would step in. But if they step in they have

:13:20.:13:22.

other people they should be seeing at the same time. It has a knock-on

:13:23.:13:29.

effect. You have lost 12,500 operations along with the

:13:30.:13:37.

patient's. -- patients. But the idea of emergency care not been

:13:38.:13:44.

covered... -- being. What about the incredibly ill patients? Leicester

:13:45.:13:52.

City five points away from a fairytale finale, it says. What an

:13:53.:14:01.

extraordinary season! Apparently, the Algieri and winger. --

:14:02.:14:12.

Algerian. He did not even know that Leicester City was a football team.

:14:13.:14:13.

(LAUGHING). Maybe not after recent... It is

:14:14.:14:33.

about the team and not just the individual. It has really caught me

:14:34.:14:40.

out because it has been so beautiful. But it has been very

:14:41.:14:45.

cold. The central heating went back on in our house over the weekend. My

:14:46.:14:51.

wife was out gardening and she said it was too cold to go gardening.

:14:52.:14:56.

Sometimes we have a bit of fascination with the weather on the

:14:57.:15:01.

express. It is time to get your longjohns back on. Thank you. That

:15:02.:15:17.

is it in the paper review and now it is time for the film

:15:18.:15:18.
