Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers


With this are Lynn Faulds Wood and James Rampton from the Independent.

in which he's expected to say a vote to remain in the EU keeps


The Telegraph has chosen stronger words to


describe the Prime Minister's speech, calling it Churchillian.


And the Mail describes the speech


as an extraordinary intervention by David Cameron.

And the Daily Star forecasts sickies being pulled


nationwide because of the sunny weather.


But around this table. Let's look at the Daily Mail, shall we. EU vote,


the PE warns of war and genocide, -- the PM. Extraordinary, because of


the tone of it or... ? They are worried about the tone. In the


comment section they are saying, is it too much to hope the PM will tone


down the rhetoric and start to treat the electorate like adults? I


understand what they are saying, at his tone is very apocalyptic, but I


never thought I would say this on air, I agree with him, that the past


1000 years, continental Europe has been in turmoil and conflict, and


since the formation of the EU, the members of that club have never had


a war. That is the longest time in history of Europe. I know Angela


Merkel, the German Chancellor, leaves very strongly that European


unity is dedicated on the EU, that it rings us together and we are not


going to fall out. It is almost visceral thing about staying


together, and you are not going to fight each other if you are


together, and I think the athlete Lee has a good point, David Cameron.


-- he absolutely. How is the leave campaign going to counter this?


Trouble at the moment is you have the leave campaign coming up with


something that is quite a good idea, and some things that are not a good


idea. The pros and cons are mixed up. Tomorrow the leaders will be


coming out and saying, we will all be fine, the only war we have had


was just outside Europe, which was when Yugoslavia broke up. And that


was a 16 or 17 years ago. The rest of the time we have not had wars.


The project of the EU was supposed to be stopping, they are bringing


war veterans, these people did not fight for us to leave Europe, and


there are some war veterans who have actually come out to support David


Cameron and the remainder is, -- the remaining campaign, and saying this


has been jeopardised. The front pages saying it is not the EU that


has kept peace, it is Nato. That is a wider alliance. There is that, but


there is the symbolic valley of being in a club together, which


means that you are not going to be fighting like rats in a sack. I also


think that the many other strong point made by the remain campaign


today in response to what Michael Gove said this morning, he is


suggesting that if we leave the EU we will also leave the single


market, and I am not an economic expert, but I think that the UK


chief executive of Siemens went -- may well be. He suggested that was


staggering, and the head of BT said the same thing. There is lots of


evidence that this fire that Michael Gove has taken about how we would


easily be able to have tariff free trade -- tariff free trade, like


Albania and Serbia, I think that is nonsense. This is the time is that


you are talking about. You are doing my job to me. -- the Times. " Brexit


will raise risk of war", that is the headline. Outside of their official


roles, some business leaders speaking in a personal capacity,


have poured cold water on this idea. Tomorrow we have this big


speech by David Cameron, he is going to be invoking Churchill, and three


hours after his speech, Boris Johnson is coming out with a speech,


and he wrote an autobiography of Churchill, so he will be invoking a


different Churchill, from the one that David Cameron... It is just


becoming so confusing. We have 45 days yet to go, we have war and


genocide in tomorrow's papers, what will happen after that? It is just


going to be... The latest poll which was done for good morning Britain,


so it must be true was 42% for remaining, 42% believing, and there


was another 19% or something, is that the correct maths? That is very


much in the margin of error. That is too close to call. Nobody knows what


will happen, and we know what the polls were like last year in the


general election. If they keep raving this up anything could


happen. Calm, tells -- Sadiq Khan tells Jeremy Coleman, labour needs a


bigger tents. Is that idea that they cannot appeal to that court reliable


vote, they will never get elected? Gerry Corbyn is -- Djere Neade grow


one, is supposed to appeal to that left wing, he has done this in a


very each big tent way, so to speak, two days he seems to has appealed to


most, having in his swearing-in ceremony at Southwark Cathedral with


all faiths present, and today at the Holocaust memorial, he does seem to


be trying to bring everybody in, and what he is basically saying is that


Jeremy Corbyn has been too left-wing, and that he has to widen


his tent. I agree, that Sadiq Khan has played a blinder since he won


the election, and something else he said today, we do not win elections


by talking to people who already vote Labour. Tony Blair knew that in


1997, you only win number 10 by winning the middle ground. It is the


same in America, Ronald Reagan won the White House by ringing the


Reagan Democrats, you can only win if you have a broad appeal. You have


to wonder how vulnerable Jeremy Corbyn is now, having got through


the elections in a better way, than many people thought. I think he is


vulnerable at the moment. Trouble with Scotland, for example, which we


lost, the SNP is left-leaning, that is why Labour has lost its vote,


particularly to them, and the Tory candidate, she sounds like a great


character, and the public loved characters. But she did not mention


the word Conservative. She became a proper opposition to the SNP. What


Jeremy Corbyn has to do in England, he has to get the 13% swing, so he


has to bring a lot of Tories into the tent as well. I would like to


move on. We will stay with the Independent, but move on to the


Baftas. The director of Wolff Paul, who won best drama, saying BBC faces


life as a state broadcaster like North Korea. He came out fighting


for the BBC. He was accorded a standing ovation. He said John


Whittingdale's suggest that you should move popular programmes like


strictly come dancing, it was they were too popular, is absolutely


ludicrous. Peter Kosminsky said, quite rightly, that the BBC would


face life as a straight broadcaster -- state broadcaster like North


Korea. The BBC is the greatest thing this country has ever done after the


NHS, I speak to a lot of foreign journalists and my work, and they


are completely gobsmacked that some papers in this country attack it so


much, it is one of our great glories of democracy. Which other


broadcaster in the world, would have brought about the downfall of its


director-general by interviewing him on one of its own programmes. It is


extraordinary. For some people the BBC has been too commercially


aggressive at times, to the detriment of its competitors, when


it has the advantage and the privileged position of receiving the


licence fee. It is not perfect. I have worked over the years


intermittently at the BBC, I do work for an outfit so I can say what they


like, but it has done plenty of wonderful things. Peter Kosminsky


joined the BBC around the same time I started popping up on BBC


breakfast. Peter is a classic example of somebody who got his


first rake, and he has done so many admired programmes, not all for the


BBC, will fall happens to be. He has a broader view of its place. --


Wolff Hall. He is also no supporter of the labour government. He made


the film, the government, years ago, which was about the way the Labour


Party behaved around Calais and the Hutton enquiry. He is very much a


mutual person, -- neutral person. He needs to be respected even more in


his position. Let's look at the Guardian. Another BBC programme that


won the features award, this time Appetite for Success, a little


mention for the great British break off when, -- take off winner. Did


you ever think you would see that picture in the paper, Mary Berry


always looks superb, and is leading one of the best watched programmes


in the whole country, and the thing that they are missing when they have


a look at the BBC, there is a lot of these programmes, a lot of people


are baking now, they are dancing out, because strictly come dancing


is... It may be spurious to say so, but lots of commentators said that


Nadia Hussein's victory allowed more people to understand, what people


like Nadia and her background were like, then documentaries. She was


presented as a human being, a delightful human being, which is the


great thing that television can do, it can open at up into other worlds


which we could not otherwise enter. We will wait and see. Hands off,


Whittingdale! We have to move on. Quickly, before I get in trouble.


There will be a lot of people who agree with John Whittingdale.


International New York Times,, the Republican Party in two mines about


whether Donald Trump really should be their presidential candidate, as


he is. I am so full of news about the Baftas, I can't find it. It does


not matter what Trump does, the public loved him because he is the


celebrity and he speaks his mind, and they are sick of stereotypical


politicians. That is part of the reason, and the Republican Party


is, in the greatest disarray has ever been in, there is resilient


programme in Scotland, the land of my fathers, there was a horrific, he


took the Scottish government to the cleaners over a golf course that he


set up in an area of natural beauty, an important scientific beauty site,


and he skinned them, and Alex summoned -- Alex Salmond said that


on television. As a liberal person I am delighted he is going to get the


rubber to nomination, because even Republicans will vote Hillary


Clinton. The Republican nomination. Some will. There was a supporter of


John McCain who was the previous Republican candidate who said he


would vote for Clinton. There will be lots of people who we talk about,


the middle ground, who will go to Clinton, and is absolutely at will


not get in. Oh dear. Allegedly. Let's finish there. Thank you so


much, James, thank you. Coming up next it is the film review.
