The bathtub goes double for! A successful night for the BBC at the

:00:00.:00:00.

Baftas, winning more than half the awards. Best entertainment show for

:00:00.:00:13.

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

:00:14.:00:16.

With me are the broadcaster Lynn Faulds Wood and

:00:17.:00:19.

Front pages, then. The Metro previews the speech being made by

:00:20.:00:36.

David Cameron tomorrow in which he is expected to say that a vote to

:00:37.:00:41.

remain in the EU keeps Britain safe and secure. The Telegraph has chosen

:00:42.:00:46.

stronger words, calling the speedy Churchillian. The Mail describes the

:00:47.:00:51.

speech as an extra reinvention by David Cameron. A similar theme in

:00:52.:00:56.

the Times. The photo is of Mark Rylance, who won best actor at the

:00:57.:01:01.

Baftas. The Financial Times reflects on the blows exchanged by George

:01:02.:01:04.

Osborne and Michael Gove in the referendum debate. The Guardian

:01:05.:01:10.

reports on a mother's anger at a caution being handed to a

:01:11.:01:14.

perpetrator of revenge porn. Plans to crack down on health tourism is

:01:15.:01:18.

in the Express. I'd say he's being called nationwide because of the

:01:19.:01:26.

sunny weather. Let's begin with the Telegraph and this rather strong

:01:27.:01:29.

headline, camera leaving EU could bring war. Britain will pay high

:01:30.:01:36.

cost and risk conflict Europe, says PM in Churchillian speech. I am

:01:37.:01:41.

looking forward to three hours after he gives his speech because

:01:42.:01:44.

apparently Boris Johnson, who has written a biography of Churchill and

:01:45.:01:50.

who is the arch Brexit let's get out person, he will be speaking, so it

:01:51.:01:55.

will be very interesting what his take on Churchill is. Cameron Percy

:01:56.:02:01.

recruiting, this is project fear with knobs on. -- Cameron's take.

:02:02.:02:11.

Not only are they talking about war, this is warning of genocide as well.

:02:12.:02:18.

Genocide. This will be David Cameron's speech. We have only just

:02:19.:02:22.

finished a set of elections. We thought we might have 24 hours

:02:23.:02:26.

before we got stuck into the referendum. But it is a sunny day

:02:27.:02:31.

today. We quite like some nice stories. We will get to the Baftas

:02:32.:02:40.

later. James, both sides, the Leave and Remain, are ramping things up.

:02:41.:02:44.

It isn't just one side or the other that is using more and more

:02:45.:02:50.

rhetoric. It is like mutually assured destruction! I never thought

:02:51.:02:53.

I would say this, but I agree with David Cameron. What about war and

:02:54.:03:02.

genocide? The threat to breaking up the EU could be catastrophic to this

:03:03.:03:06.

continent. Something that Angela Merkel said last year, when she

:03:07.:03:09.

wanted to keep grease inside the tent, she said, as a country that

:03:10.:03:13.

has been responsible for the greatest catastrophe of the 20th

:03:14.:03:17.

century, we are keen to keep Europe together because this is the longest

:03:18.:03:21.

period in 1000 years when there has not been a war on the European

:03:22.:03:28.

continent. Hold on, the Balkans, which was 13, 16 years ago. Forgive

:03:29.:03:35.

me for saying, didn't we have to be having this referendum in the first

:03:36.:03:40.

place? Wasn't it to appease the Tories and the right-wingers? We've

:03:41.:03:46.

got another five to six weeks... The Balkan countries weren't inside the

:03:47.:03:51.

EU at the time. And that club have remained very stable since 1960, the

:03:52.:03:56.

Treaty of Rome. But the whole idea of why we are having the referendum,

:03:57.:04:00.

there is a one word answer and it is Ukip. Ukip 14.5 billion folks at

:04:01.:04:08.

last year's general election and Cameron was terrified many of his

:04:09.:04:13.

backbench MPs would migrate Ukip and would tear the Tory party apart. --

:04:14.:04:20.

14.5 million people. To give them some solace, he said there would be

:04:21.:04:27.

a referendum. Let's move on. How are they going to work together after

:04:28.:04:32.

this? Financial Times, Britain would quit single market after vote to

:04:33.:04:37.

leave EU, Michael Gove admits. George Osborne and Michael Gove

:04:38.:04:41.

trading verbal blows over whether it would be damaging, James, to

:04:42.:04:49.

Britain's trade if we were not inside the single market. Yes, he

:04:50.:04:57.

has been accusing those who want to remain of project fear. This seems

:04:58.:05:01.

like he wants to wrap up his own sense of fear. It is interesting

:05:02.:05:05.

that many business leaders have knocked down what he had to say

:05:06.:05:09.

today. The head of UK production at Siemens said it is staggering to

:05:10.:05:12.

suggest we would be better off leaving the single market. The

:05:13.:05:16.

chairman of BT says it is critical to the economic safety of this

:05:17.:05:20.

country that we remain in the single market because it guarantees that we

:05:21.:05:25.

exist in a carriage free trade zone. Otherwise, we would be paying an

:05:26.:05:32.

absolute fortune. -- in a tariff free trade zone. Isn't it a nonsense

:05:33.:05:36.

to suggest that, if we were to be outside the single market, Germany

:05:37.:05:41.

would put off tariffs and so would we? They would cancel each other

:05:42.:05:46.

out, surely? America hasn't done badly on its own and Norway seems

:05:47.:05:52.

pretty rich... It has to pay European tariffs and it must have

:05:53.:05:57.

free movement of people. That is one of the options they apparently want

:05:58.:06:02.

for us. If we left the single market, we would be in a group with

:06:03.:06:08.

Albania and Serbia. There is a very small group of European countries

:06:09.:06:12.

outside the single market. The risk is that we wouldn't get special

:06:13.:06:16.

treatment because of who we are. The EU said there would be no special

:06:17.:06:20.

treatment for us if we let the single market. It may be that it

:06:21.:06:23.

echoes what Obama said, that we would go to the back of the queue

:06:24.:06:27.

for trade agreement in the future. Nobody knows for sure. It is a leap

:06:28.:06:33.

in the dark for both camps, you can list the pros and cons and you will

:06:34.:06:36.

find lots of things you like on either side. It is a mess. Difficult

:06:37.:06:41.

for people to work it out ahead of the vote. The Guardian, Corbyn faces

:06:42.:06:51.

Labour MPs as Khan calls for a new tone. Jeremy Corbyn has a job on his

:06:52.:06:55.

hands. Although he did better in the election than he might have done,

:06:56.:07:00.

there is still work to do to heal the rifts in the party. Absolutely,

:07:01.:07:06.

and it seems that the success of Sadiq Khan has highlighted the worry

:07:07.:07:11.

is that people within the Labour movement have about Jeremy Corbyn

:07:12.:07:14.

and, in fact, in a speech, Khan has said that we don't win elections by

:07:15.:07:18.

talking to people who already vote Labour. That is a key phrase. For

:07:19.:07:23.

all his faults, and he really fell out with the Labour movement in the

:07:24.:07:27.

end, Tony Blair realised that you cannot win number ten without the

:07:28.:07:30.

middle ground. It is the same in the US. President Reagan won with the

:07:31.:07:36.

so-called Reagan Democrats, because you can only win power if you can

:07:37.:07:39.

convince the people in the middle ground that you are competent and

:07:40.:07:43.

credible and I don't think that Corbyn has achieved that yet. I just

:07:44.:07:48.

had a wee problem with my microphone, but it is OK. A small

:07:49.:07:53.

person crept in and adjusted it. A lovely person! What I think is

:07:54.:07:58.

brilliant about what Cameron has done so far -- Khan has done so far,

:07:59.:08:02.

he has managed to bring everybody into the tent, first of all, a

:08:03.:08:07.

Muslim holding his swearing in in Southwark Cathedral with all faiths

:08:08.:08:12.

and non-faiths there. I have no faith. Today, or was it yesterday,

:08:13.:08:18.

he was at the Holocaust... Sorry, I had pneumonia, my brain has been

:08:19.:08:22.

tampered with. He was a Holocaust memorial. This guy is doing things

:08:23.:08:27.

so far beautifully. I hope he doesn't turn into an attack dog,

:08:28.:08:31.

because at the moment he is winning in the central ground with the

:08:32.:08:34.

Labour Party by the way he is behaving. Whether they can overcome

:08:35.:08:41.

the claims of anti-Semitism that are now being investigated as part of a

:08:42.:08:45.

wider look at racism in the party, that hasn't gone away yet, as it?

:08:46.:08:51.

Although this enquiry has started. That's true, and some people said

:08:52.:08:56.

that it damaged Khan's vote, that he would have had a bigger majority

:08:57.:08:59.

without. It could have been much higher, because Zac Goldsmith's

:09:00.:09:07.

tactics were miscalculated, with his ill judged attacks on Khan. My

:09:08.:09:13.

wonder is whether Khan can write this wave of popularity and bid for

:09:14.:09:19.

the leadership in the future. Small steps. Winning London is a good

:09:20.:09:25.

start. I think Zac Goldsmith was badly led. I have met him and

:09:26.:09:29.

thought, what a nice bloke. He is just a nice bloke, not a top

:09:30.:09:36.

thumping leader. How much say did he have in his campaign? Jemima Khan

:09:37.:09:43.

criticised his campaign in the end. Things get reported, so who knows?

:09:44.:09:53.

What, journalists would miss -- journalists would misreport? The

:09:54.:10:01.

Daily Telegraph, high drama at Baftas over BBC reform. Sheridan

:10:02.:10:04.

Smith in the photo. There were some fairly strong words for the Culture

:10:05.:10:10.

Secretary, John Whittingdale, over his forthcoming BBC reforms, with

:10:11.:10:15.

the white paper coming out. Neither of us work for the BBC and the

:10:16.:10:19.

wonderful thing about the Baftas was how much rich stuff there was there.

:10:20.:10:25.

As started on the BBC 30 years ago, at the same time as the man who went

:10:26.:10:33.

on to do glorious things like Wolf Hall, and he spoke out, saying, this

:10:34.:10:39.

is a wonderful brand and you mustn't tamper with it. There is a huge

:10:40.:10:43.

sense of support for what he said. We don't work for the BBC, and we

:10:44.:10:49.

can say this. After the NHS, the BBC is this country's greatest

:10:50.:10:54.

achievement. In my work, I meet lots of foreign journalists and they

:10:55.:10:58.

cannot believe the amount that some newspapers slack off the BBC. They

:10:59.:11:03.

said, you can't believe how lucky you are to have the BBC. I do work

:11:04.:11:09.

for the BBC, currently. There is criticism that the BBC has got too

:11:10.:11:14.

big, that its scale and scope needs looking at, that it is being to

:11:15.:11:19.

competitive and aggressive commercially... But look at the

:11:20.:11:23.

quality of the product at the Baftas, and that was only some of

:11:24.:11:30.

the stuff. The first ever award for Strictly Come Dancing, which, if

:11:31.:11:34.

reports are to be believed, John Whittingdale wants to move to a less

:11:35.:11:37.

popular slot because it is doing too well. My personal favourite, Mary

:11:38.:11:44.

Berry. She is on the front page of the Guardian, who was the winner of

:11:45.:11:49.

Great British Bake Off recently. Both of them looking glamorous on

:11:50.:11:54.

the red carpet. They won the best features programme. Wonderful news

:11:55.:11:59.

for everybody who is getting older, because there is Mary Berry, looking

:12:00.:12:08.

brilliant. She is with Mary nightingale, who tweeted, Mary,

:12:09.:12:15.

Mary. She thought, they recognise me, and she looked around and it was

:12:16.:12:19.

Mary Berry. If there was a vote tomorrow for president and Mary

:12:20.:12:23.

Berry was standing, it would be a landslide. Sent her to America and

:12:24.:12:30.

they might find a use for her! The New York Times, we don't often

:12:31.:12:36.

feature it, but we have tonight. Trump takes over. This is the

:12:37.:12:41.

concern in the Republican Party that they have got a presidential

:12:42.:12:44.

candidate that not everybody is happy with. This is fascinating. I

:12:45.:12:49.

had dinner with a friend from New York and he is beside himself with

:12:50.:12:55.

worry. A year ago, nobody said Trump, he was 17 favourite, nobody

:12:56.:12:58.

said he could get the nomination. Now we is going to get it and he is

:12:59.:13:05.

going to reach 1237 delegates and be crowned at the convention. My

:13:06.:13:09.

friend, a liberal New Yorker, is terrified that he could possibly

:13:10.:13:14.

beat Hillary. The big story is that if success is tearing the

:13:15.:13:18.

Republicans apart. Paul Ryan, the speaker, has refused to endorse him.

:13:19.:13:23.

The two living Republican presidents have refused to endorse him. I am

:13:24.:13:28.

delighted by that, but I think it is bad for democracy if your party is

:13:29.:13:32.

being destroyed by one maverick with extremely outrageous views. He is a

:13:33.:13:38.

celebrity. We live in an age... I'm glad I haven't peaked yet, like Mary

:13:39.:13:46.

Berry. We live in an age where his celebrity and his ability to say

:13:47.:13:50.

whatever he likes, that is what people are enjoying in him. They are

:13:51.:13:55.

fed up with the old politicians. He speaks to a lot of people. Millions

:13:56.:14:00.

of them, actually. The party is falling apart at the seams. Right

:14:01.:14:04.

now, nobody knows what is going to happen. That's democracy. If Brexit

:14:05.:14:14.

wins, Boris, being this huge television personality... Steady on!

:14:15.:14:17.

I haven't got time to put this right and offer opposing views. We are

:14:18.:14:24.

playing the music. Will you stop? You are arguing against democracy!

:14:25.:14:29.

Give us until 11:30pm and I will come up with something. Coming up

:14:30.:14:34.

next, Meet The

:14:35.:14:35.
