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

:00:13.:00:15.

With me are Anne Ashworth, Assistant Editor of The Times

:00:16.:00:19.

and The Evening Standard's columnist Mihir Bose.

:00:20.:00:21.

Tomorrow's front pages, starting with...

:00:22.:00:28.

The new Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has written in tomorrow's Observer

:00:29.:00:31.

claiming the Conservative tactics in the campaign were "straight out

:00:32.:00:34.

The main picture shows the Leicester City players lifting

:00:35.:00:39.

The Independent online says the Shadow Chancellor,

:00:40.:00:45.

John McDonnell, is calling on Labour to support

:00:46.:00:47.

Two former heads of MI5 and MI6 have told the Sunday Times that leaving

:00:48.:00:55.

the European Union could undermine the UK's "ability to protect

:00:56.:00:57.

The Telegraph reports on new figures which the paper claims show schools

:00:58.:01:06.

in the UK are under increasing pressure because of EU migration.

:01:07.:01:15.

According to the Mail on Sunday, a navy officer who trained in the UK

:01:16.:01:18.

has fled to Syria to join so-called Islamic State.

:01:19.:01:23.

"Dignity For Diana At last" is the main headline in the Express,

:01:24.:01:26.

with news that her grave at Althrop House is to

:01:27.:01:29.

We are starting with the Sunday Times. More on the Brexit debate.

:01:30.:01:49.

This time it is spy chiefs weighing into the debate. The ex-MI5 and MI6

:01:50.:01:55.

spy chiefs have colourfully said that if we leave the EU it would be

:01:56.:01:59.

like a father leaving the wife and children behind. I am not sure we

:02:00.:02:04.

see ourselves as the father of the EU, but, nevertheless, quite

:02:05.:02:13.

interesting. What they are saying is we cooperate, coordinate security

:02:14.:02:16.

information about what is happening in various parts of the world and

:02:17.:02:21.

that we will not be able to do. The other point they make is that they

:02:22.:02:25.

were not coached by Downing Street to say this, they have independently

:02:26.:02:29.

come up with the idea that they we are the father of the EU and we

:02:30.:02:35.

shouldn't be doing this. So remain and we stay safe is the message. The

:02:36.:02:41.

tone is very interesting. In the first weeks of the campaign we had

:02:42.:02:45.

many figures thrown at us about how much worse or better off we would be

:02:46.:02:50.

in or out. Now it is almost becoming an emotional campaign and that we

:02:51.:02:57.

are going to feel the EU as a family in which we have all got a stake. It

:02:58.:03:02.

seems as if there is going to be a lot of speeches in the week coming

:03:03.:03:07.

up with Boris apparently being unleashed to travel the country in a

:03:08.:03:14.

bus. I suppose it has to be a Boris pass. It seems as though maybe those

:03:15.:03:19.

figures that were being thrown at us like we would be 4,000 or ?5,000

:03:20.:03:27.

better off in or out have not been persuading people and maybe we need

:03:28.:03:32.

to feel a great sense of security in the heart of the family that is the

:03:33.:03:37.

EU. It is an interesting analogy. Royal Family work for people? I am

:03:38.:03:43.

surprised that the people who wanted us to remain have not contacted

:03:44.:03:49.

cloud you run the area! You as an Italian have come to this country

:03:50.:03:54.

because of the EU and you couldn't have done that without the EU and

:03:55.:04:00.

the free movement of labour. Get the Leicester City fans on board! Let's

:04:01.:04:06.

stay with the Brexit. The Sunday Telegraph are focusing on education,

:04:07.:04:09.

saying that the influx of migrant families are putting schools under

:04:10.:04:15.

huge pressure. In this paper, which seems to have sat somewhere in the

:04:16.:04:19.

House of Commons and not been made freely available until it was

:04:20.:04:22.

discovered by the Sunday Telegraph, this massive pressure on schools

:04:23.:04:29.

with children coming here, 700,000 new pupils for whom there are a lot

:04:30.:04:34.

of schools, and also because English is not the first language, it

:04:35.:04:38.

requires the schools to lay on English classes. Again, it is a new

:04:39.:04:45.

kind of fronts in the EU for, this idea that maybe we are too many, we

:04:46.:04:53.

are uncomfortably overcrowded on this island and that could be one of

:04:54.:04:56.

the main thrust of the argument coming up. This is where the

:04:57.:05:02.

emotional thing will come in. I believe this referendum will be

:05:03.:05:06.

decided on a motion. What this argument is about we have lost our

:05:07.:05:10.

country, we have allowed too many people to come in, we are a small

:05:11.:05:15.

island and look what it is going to do to our schools and future

:05:16.:05:19.

generations, which you will be able to properly. If this is presented it

:05:20.:05:25.

would be quite an appealing argument. I am not endorsing it, but

:05:26.:05:29.

it could be quite an appealing argument, trying to integrate these

:05:30.:05:33.

people live, teach them English and things like that. As you mentioned,

:05:34.:05:40.

the paper was quietly released and hopefully buried in an election

:05:41.:05:44.

week, and they think much will be made, the people who want us to

:05:45.:05:49.

leave will make much of this argument. That point about hearts

:05:50.:05:55.

and minds is interesting. A lot of the narrative seems to be that a lot

:05:56.:05:59.

of people will not make up their minds until the last minute and it

:06:00.:06:05.

will be a cut moment. When I went to vote on Thursday for the elections

:06:06.:06:10.

for the Mary-Anne Monckton, I got the impression that a lot of people

:06:11.:06:15.

get the pencil in the hands and then they almost make up their mind in

:06:16.:06:23.

the booth. It will B in those last hours that this battle is won and

:06:24.:06:26.

all of those figures thrown at us will be white noise. Most people

:06:27.:06:31.

just get on with their lives and are not intensely involved in political

:06:32.:06:35.

debate. Let's return to the Sunday Times. From... This is all about

:06:36.:06:45.

Jeremy Corbyn jetting off on holiday, allegedly. This follows on

:06:46.:06:51.

from Sadik Khan winning in London. He did not call to his inauguration.

:06:52.:07:01.

-- Sadiq Khan. He is going on holiday for ten days. If the people

:07:02.:07:08.

who want to remain are going to win, then Jeremy Corbyn has got to lead

:07:09.:07:11.

the Labour Party into this. He seems to give the impression he doesn't

:07:12.:07:16.

much care about it. He cares about not being involved. He has not led

:07:17.:07:22.

the campaign so far. Is he really committed to it? Going back several

:07:23.:07:27.

years he was a backbench MP he often voted against EU measures. He is

:07:28.:07:32.

giving the impression that he has not got his heart in this campaign.

:07:33.:07:39.

Do we need to another Brexit type word? It is too much fun! Is the

:07:40.:07:52.

tone of this piece, how very dare he? Maybe he is just going to try to

:07:53.:08:00.

get away from it all! I think there is this feeling that Jeremy Corbyn

:08:01.:08:04.

isn't really up for the job. Forget about his ideas, but he often gives

:08:05.:08:08.

the impression of being a leader caught in the headlights. It is like

:08:09.:08:14.

he has been told to manage a football team never having managed

:08:15.:08:18.

one before. His supporters would take we are seeing too many of these

:08:19.:08:22.

articles trying to undermine him. The front of the observer is all

:08:23.:08:28.

about Sadiq Khan's piece inside the observer in which he talks about the

:08:29.:08:37.

plans used during the London mayoral election and likens those plans to

:08:38.:08:42.

those of Donald Trump. On social media, this whole piece is not

:08:43.:08:45.

playing as an attack on Jeremy Corbyn. It is a very interesting way

:08:46.:08:55.

the uneasy feelings among many of the Labour Party about Jeremy Corbyn

:08:56.:09:01.

are being tired. You can read what Sadiq Khan rights as an attack both

:09:02.:09:06.

on the Ed Miliband regime and that of Jeremy Corbyn. Sadiq Khan is

:09:07.:09:12.

Colin Ford laboured to get together, to pull together as one, to think as

:09:13.:09:18.

one Dundee United. That is not surprising because this election,

:09:19.:09:22.

before the results, or meant to be a referendum on Jeremy Corbyn. The

:09:23.:09:26.

expectation was that the results would be very bad. Some Labour MPs

:09:27.:09:32.

were planning at two, had been reported. Now they can do that. The

:09:33.:09:39.

hard-core of Labour MPs who refuse to believe that Jeremy Corbyn could

:09:40.:09:43.

be a leader that would take them to number ten. I think this argument

:09:44.:09:48.

will go on. Sadiq Khan's article is about saying I have managed to win,

:09:49.:09:53.

I am one of the few successes you have had on the selection and they

:09:54.:09:56.

did it cause I appeal to everyone, Labour has to be a broad church, it

:09:57.:10:01.

can be an narrow political party which believes in only one

:10:02.:10:07.

philosophy. So a call to unity from Sadiq Khan. It is interesting that

:10:08.:10:11.

as you said, the line that the observer have died of what he said

:10:12.:10:16.

is this attack on Zac Goldsmith, using fear and innuendo to turn

:10:17.:10:21.

religious and ethnic groups against each other. That seems to be the

:10:22.:10:27.

accepted view of how the campaign was run. Zac Goldsmith's Sister

:10:28.:10:32.

thinks so. I would love to know what Zac Goldsmith things himself. If he

:10:33.:10:37.

is thinking he wishes he could have done it otherwise. This attack on

:10:38.:10:41.

Sadiq Khan does not seem to have played well. Zac Goldsmith give the

:10:42.:10:46.

impression that he didn't want to do it. He often give the impression

:10:47.:10:49.

that he was questioned about Sadiq Khan's alleged extremism that he did

:10:50.:10:54.

not believe in the attack, he had been tutored to have to set. The

:10:55.:11:02.

point about the attack, OK, Sadiq Khan to been on platforms with

:11:03.:11:06.

people you shouldn't have been, but the point about the attack is

:11:07.:11:09.

attacking him as a human rights lawyer defending people who are

:11:10.:11:14.

accused of all sorts of crimes. Surely in our system you defend

:11:15.:11:18.

people whatever crimes they are accused of. You can't blame the

:11:19.:11:22.

lawyer fitting that unless of course the lawyer says he sympathised with

:11:23.:11:26.

the crime, which there is absolutely no evidence Sadiq Khan ever did. It

:11:27.:11:35.

is going to kick off in America. There is an article about just how

:11:36.:11:40.

bloody and terrible and highly insulting the whole thing will be in

:11:41.:11:45.

America, so maybe we should think about what happened in the London

:11:46.:11:49.

this as very mild. Staying with politics, the independent have an

:11:50.:11:56.

exclusive Suntory -- story, sent the Shadow Chancellor is demanding a new

:11:57.:12:02.

voting system here. What he is saying is that we should have

:12:03.:12:05.

proportional representation. It is very interesting. The Labour Party

:12:06.:12:12.

have a chance in 1997, but Tony Blair did not think you would win

:12:13.:12:16.

that bigger majority. They have discussions with Paddy Ashdown about

:12:17.:12:19.

having proportional representation. They didn't go for it. Now that

:12:20.:12:25.

Labour is in trouble, the Shadow Chancellor calls for proportional

:12:26.:12:28.

representation. Even with it, which exists in Scotland, where is Labour

:12:29.:12:34.

with proportional representation in Scotland? Proportional

:12:35.:12:39.

representation by itself, helping Labour get some share of power, I

:12:40.:12:43.

don't think it works. The party would need to have some message. In

:12:44.:12:48.

Scotland we have proportional representation and the SNP is so

:12:49.:12:52.

dominant that Labour are in third. John McDonnell, is nearby to bid to

:12:53.:12:58.

replace Jeremy Corbyn? There is some talk that he was at the front of

:12:59.:13:05.

trying to censure Ken Livingstone, and that McDonnell has been lining

:13:06.:13:11.

up to hope that if there is a coup he will be the first one to succeed.

:13:12.:13:16.

There is a lot of talk about that. Did he thinks this is a policy they

:13:17.:13:20.

can't agree on. We had a referendum a couple of years ago didn't we? A

:13:21.:13:27.

fee in 2011. The proper political animals with said that isn't the

:13:28.:13:32.

same thing. How exciting this proportional representation? Not at

:13:33.:13:34.

all. Thank you very much. We will be back

:13:35.:13:45.

at 11:30 p.m.. To join us. You'll both be back at 11.30pm

:13:46.:13:56.

for another look at the stories
