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

:00:00.:00:16.

With me are Anne Ashworth, Assistant Editor of the Times, and the Evening

:00:17.:00:20.

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

:00:21.: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.:00:40.

The Independent online says the Shadow Chancellor, John McDonnell,

:00:41.:00:46.

is calling on Labour to support proportional representation.

:00:47.:00:53.

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

:00:54.:00:56.

that leaving the European Union could undermine the UK's "ability to

:00:57.:00:58.

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

:00:59.:01:07.

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

:01:08.:01:14.

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

:01:15.:01:17.

in the UK has fled to Syria to join so-called Islamic State.

:01:18.:01:22.

And "Dignity for Diana at last" is the

:01:23.:01:25.

main headline in the Express - with news that her grave at Althorp House

:01:26.:01:28.

Let's begin and have a closer look. We will start with the Sunday Times.

:01:29.:01:42.

I know you will talk us through one of the breakfast stories. -- Brexit.

:01:43.:01:51.

You pointed out the 10,000th issue of the Sunday Times. Going since the

:01:52.:01:56.

early 1820s and a series of names. At one point it was called the

:01:57.:02:01.

Independent and the Observer, and at that time it had no connection with

:02:02.:02:07.

the Times, where I write, and nothing much has changed. Everybody

:02:08.:02:12.

is still sitting there and talking about politicians are working out

:02:13.:02:16.

who was great and arguing a hat is not in the same way we are doing

:02:17.:02:20.

this evening, but it is an extraordinary history -- perhaps not

:02:21.:02:26.

in the same way. I worked for the Sunday Times for 20 odd years, and

:02:27.:02:34.

there is a rivalry. Very superior, and it made money in those days. It

:02:35.:02:38.

still makes money. We kept the Times going. I will get you out of that.

:02:39.:02:46.

You will talk as do the spy chiefs that say quitting the EU is a

:02:47.:02:49.

security risk. We have had two former heads of security say that

:02:50.:02:54.

leaving Europe would be leaving a wonderful family. It would be like

:02:55.:02:59.

the situation where a fire that leaves the family and the

:03:00.:03:04.

consequences can be dire. It is just a new approach to the way we are

:03:05.:03:11.

talking about the EU referendum. The two people concerned so they have

:03:12.:03:14.

not been coached by number 10 for this, but it seems to be part of a

:03:15.:03:18.

bigger hearts and minds type of campaign where they appealed to our

:03:19.:03:22.

sense of comfort within the greater European family. And instead of

:03:23.:03:29.

throwing around numbers about how much better off or worse off we will

:03:30.:03:36.

be whether we stay or go. I think in a way be hearts and minds one, this

:03:37.:03:40.

argument is meant to say we would be more insecure. The economic argument

:03:41.:03:45.

is more difficult to make. How much we will lose what will happen with

:03:46.:03:50.

trade. Against the people who want to leave, saying that this will

:03:51.:03:53.

regain our sovereignty. They are trying to say, we're going to be

:03:54.:03:59.

free again, an independent country, look at the other side. Being

:04:00.:04:05.

independent, we will be less secure. They say there is so much

:04:06.:04:09.

intelligent sharing going on, we risk undermining that. This is like

:04:10.:04:15.

a fire that leaving the wife and children, and that intelligence

:04:16.:04:18.

sharing will not be possible once we are outside the family -- father.

:04:19.:04:22.

They will no longer want to share with the father who walked out. We

:04:23.:04:26.

will see some big keynote speeches from the Prime Minister about what

:04:27.:04:31.

leaving could mean, and Boris Johnson will travel the country on a

:04:32.:04:42.

bus. Not a Boris Pike? -- bike. As did the word he has used is

:04:43.:04:46.

unleashed. Brace yourselves is all we can say. Let's stay with Brexit.

:04:47.:04:53.

The Sunday Telegraph, migration pressure on schools revealed. What

:04:54.:04:57.

is this about? This is another emotional argument. There will

:04:58.:05:05.

certainly be a lot of talk of immigration. But this is showing is

:05:06.:05:11.

that as a result of EU immigration, there is a lot of school pressure

:05:12.:05:17.

because a lot of people coming in have school aged children, and the

:05:18.:05:22.

pressure is so great, it will require 27,000 new primary schools

:05:23.:05:28.

to cope with the people coming in. And most of them don't speak

:05:29.:05:31.

English, so there is a question of getting them the right schools. And

:05:32.:05:35.

getting them into the language group which would be different to those

:05:36.:05:42.

worn already living here. There is a point about if we don't leave the

:05:43.:05:47.

EU, this pressure will grow. And the other part of it is that these are

:05:48.:05:52.

government documents which seem to be quietly filed in the House of

:05:53.:05:56.

Commons. The source of this was interesting. Just published without

:05:57.:06:01.

fanfare. I wonder if they will be a row about the way there was no

:06:02.:06:04.

announcement made about these figures. Also, I would have liked to

:06:05.:06:10.

see in this piece some more backing for the figures, the numbers of

:06:11.:06:15.

pupils, and the need for special language teachers in the schools.

:06:16.:06:22.

I'm not sure how they calculate so many new schools. I would like is

:06:23.:06:26.

that flushed out of it. And what areas. We need more details -- like

:06:27.:06:35.

to see that flushed out a bit. And a play on the word exit, about Jeremy

:06:36.:06:46.

Corbyn, second act. -- Jexit. We sort of envy him. Maybe he is making

:06:47.:06:51.

the right decision. It is not necessarily popular, but he will

:06:52.:06:59.

stage a Jexit. This is again a question about whether Jeremy Corbyn

:07:00.:07:03.

has his heart in the EU campaign. There has been a lot of talk that to

:07:04.:07:08.

win the campaign, to win to remain in the EU, the Labour Party needs to

:07:09.:07:14.

really read the thing, and so far Jeremy Corbyn has given the

:07:15.:07:18.

impression, having been in the past a critic of the European Union and

:07:19.:07:22.

voted against many measures of that you in the House of Commons, that he

:07:23.:07:26.

doesn't really care for it. He might make the noises that we should stay

:07:27.:07:30.

but he doesn't really care for it and has not led the campaign. For

:07:31.:07:34.

all we know, he is having a holiday to recharge his batteries and come

:07:35.:07:40.

back, a bit like Boris. He will be the chosen spokesman in the party? I

:07:41.:07:44.

will be interesting to watch over the next few weeks. There are quite

:07:45.:07:49.

a few people who would like to take over his job permanently. You have

:07:50.:07:53.

to be careful. I shouldn't make this a great, but the Observer is

:07:54.:08:00.

focusing on a Sadiq Khan. An up-and-coming figure in the Labour

:08:01.:08:03.

Party and newly elected Mayor of London. He has an opinion piece in

:08:04.:08:07.

the Observer. Whatever they pulled out from what he is saying? The

:08:08.:08:12.

elements of the article that are on the front of the Observer are quite

:08:13.:08:16.

far down the piece, and what they are focusing on is the tactics used

:08:17.:08:23.

by Zac Goldsmith in the London mayoral campaign. Stay -- Sadiq Khan

:08:24.:08:31.

say those are from the Donald Trump iBook. That is quite an accusation.

:08:32.:08:35.

We know the Donald Trump playbook pulls no punches. The politics of

:08:36.:08:41.

fear with ethnic groups and nationalities. We have not seen

:08:42.:08:46.

anything yet because the presidential campaign will get going

:08:47.:08:50.

in earnest, but this is actually only an element within this very

:08:51.:08:53.

interesting Sadiq Khan piece, where he seems to be as critical of the Ed

:08:54.:08:59.

Miliband regime as of Jeremy Corbyn, and he is calling for a wider unity

:09:00.:09:03.

within the Labour Party. For them all to come together behind him, a

:09:04.:09:10.

proven winner, rather then being in love with heroic failure. It has

:09:11.:09:15.

been an interesting set of results for Labour. On the one hand, they

:09:16.:09:21.

didn't do disastrously badly in the local elections, besides Scotland,

:09:22.:09:26.

they didn't do sufficiently well to put Jeremy Corbyn by contract.

:09:27.:09:31.

Jeremy Corbyn said we hung on. ! Back on track. He sounded like a

:09:32.:09:38.

relegated manager. Sadiq Khan seems to be saying I have more votes than

:09:39.:09:47.

anybody else in London. He led the Ed Miliband campaign and proposed

:09:48.:09:51.

Jeremy Corbyn for the leadership, and this is his manifesto for the

:09:52.:09:57.

future. There will be change in the Labour Party. We have to bring

:09:58.:10:02.

everything together. And probably do a Claudio Ranieri and lead Labour

:10:03.:10:09.

Party back. When he was fighting the campaign, he did not say the word

:10:10.:10:12.

Labour that much. That is rather like with Davison. We have these

:10:13.:10:19.

larger than life politicians who don't necessarily represent their

:10:20.:10:25.

party first. They are a big personality. I wonder if that is

:10:26.:10:28.

where we seem to be looking. More about the person. We got that with

:10:29.:10:34.

Boris Johnson. We'll have to see how Sadiq Khan measures up. Let's have a

:10:35.:10:40.

look at the Independent. Another Labour politician, the Shadow

:10:41.:10:44.

Chancellor John McDonnell, he will not set the world alight but he is

:10:45.:10:48.

talking about proportional representation. That really will set

:10:49.:10:53.

the world alight. Do we see this as a bid for fame? I'm not sure whether

:10:54.:10:59.

this is the way to go. As to whether proportional representation would

:11:00.:11:03.

take Labour to where it wants to go. That is not how it has happened in

:11:04.:11:06.

Scotland. There has always been a solid block in the Labour Party

:11:07.:11:12.

which never wanted proportional representation is they have always

:11:13.:11:15.

seen it is not giving them political bar. We talking about who would want

:11:16.:11:21.

to succeed Jeremy Corbyn. You wonder if this is the McDonnell edging up a

:11:22.:11:28.

pitch for what will happen after Jeremy Corbyn if he does not come

:11:29.:11:35.

back from holiday -- putting up. While we're talking about

:11:36.:11:38.

succession, a tenuous segue to the Sunday Times, he is not high up the

:11:39.:11:45.

line of succession, by Prince Harry gets no satisfaction at home on my

:11:46.:11:55.

hours. -- their back. He had his royal duties so he could not take on

:11:56.:11:59.

another job. He hates staying at home. He has gotten involved with

:12:00.:12:04.

the Invictus Games. And his other charities. He also talks about

:12:05.:12:11.

trying to find a lady who will marry him, and what an extraordinary

:12:12.:12:15.

pressure that puts on any woman he dates. It is quite touching piece. I

:12:16.:12:23.

think we love Prince Harry. He is modernising in the way he says sit

:12:24.:12:30.

at home on my cars. You could not imagine his father saying that. --

:12:31.:12:45.

at home on my Bummer. They are sensitive to public discussions that

:12:46.:12:49.

there is not enough going on. The Invictus Games are opening in

:12:50.:12:52.

Florida, and Michelle Obama will be there and so on. Clearly he is

:12:53.:12:57.

dedicated to it. If you saw the opening in London a couple of years

:12:58.:13:01.

ago, he really wanted to push it and believed this was something worth

:13:02.:13:06.

doing. Yes, trying to find something that is close to their heart and

:13:07.:13:09.

field they can wholeheartedly give. He has to find his Kate. Where will

:13:10.:13:16.

she be? Take that as a call to put yourself forward, ladies. Thank you

:13:17.:13:23.

very much. That is also now. Coming up next, The Film Review.
