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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


saying that the influx of migrant families are putting schools under


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


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


discovered by the Sunday Telegraph, this massive pressure on schools


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


the paper was quietly released and hopefully buried in an election


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


can be an narrow political party which believes in only one


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


attacking him as a human rights lawyer defending people who are


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


proportional representation. It is very interesting. The Labour Party


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


that bigger majority. They have discussions with Paddy Ashdown about


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


Labour is in trouble, the Shadow Chancellor calls for proportional


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


with proportional representation in Scotland? Proportional


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


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


Scotland we have proportional representation and the SNP is so


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


same thing. How exciting this proportional representation? Not at


all. Thank you very much. We will be back


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