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


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


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


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


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


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


is still sitting there and talking about politicians are working out


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


the situation where a fire that leaves the family and the


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


The Sunday Telegraph, migration pressure on schools revealed. What


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


fear with ethnic groups and nationalities. We have not seen


anything yet because the presidential campaign will get going


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


larger than life politicians who don't necessarily represent their


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


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


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


look at the Independent. Another Labour politician, the Shadow


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


talking about proportional representation. That really will set


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


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


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


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


which never wanted proportional representation is they have always


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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