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


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


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


With me are the broadcaster Lynn Faulds Wood and


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


Osborne and Michael Gove in the referendum debate. The Guardian


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


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


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


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


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


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


looking forward to three hours after he gives his speech because


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


has been responsible for the greatest catastrophe of the 20th


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


is that people within the Labour movement have about Jeremy Corbyn


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


Muslim holding his swearing in in Southwark Cathedral with all faiths


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


competitive and aggressive commercially... But look at the


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


concern in the Republican Party that they have got a presidential


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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