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

:00:00.:00:18.

With me are the Political Correspondent for the Evening

:00:19.:00:22.

Standard, Pippa Crerar, and the Times columnist,

:00:23.:00:24.

Tomorrow's front pages starting with...

:00:25.:00:30.

The i leads with on the war on words between David Cameron

:00:31.:00:33.

The former London Mayor also features

:00:34.:00:37.

on the front page of The Express - telling voters they would be 'mad'

:00:38.:00:40.

not to choose freedom over the "outdated ideology" of Brussels.

:00:41.:00:43.

The Daily Telegraph says the gloves are off

:00:44.:00:45.

Five former Nato chiefs have expressed fears over peace in Europe

:00:46.:00:49.

One of the main stories in the FT is the Chancellor's

:00:50.:00:54.

warning of tens of thousands of job losses in the financial services

:00:55.:00:57.

13 former US secretaries of state and defence

:00:58.:01:02.

and national security advisers have written to The Times saying the UK's

:01:03.:01:09.

"influence in the world would be diminished" outside of the EU.

:01:10.:01:13.

The Metro's top story is the sentencing of a man

:01:14.:01:15.

for the sexual assault and murder of Melanie Road, 32 years ago -

:01:16.:01:18.

The Mail leads with a study that suggests thousands

:01:19.:01:31.

of people have died needlessly because of poor care

:01:32.:01:33.

And the Guardian focuses on Jeremy Corbyn admitting

:01:34.:01:36.

that Labour is not yet doing enough to win the general election in 2020.

:01:37.:01:39.

The paper also shows NASA images of Mercury making a rare transit

:01:40.:01:42.

We will start with Mr Johnson, you cannot get away from this guy, he is

:01:43.:01:55.

no longer the Mayor of London, but he is everywhere and he is fighting

:01:56.:02:00.

for freedom! Boris is out of a job in terms of the London mayoralty. He

:02:01.:02:08.

is down to his last two jobs. His last five jobs! What was his tax

:02:09.:02:14.

return again? He is trying to make his presence on the national and

:02:15.:02:17.

international stage felt very well if not on the London stage any more.

:02:18.:02:22.

The fact he is on so many front pages, it really is the Conservative

:02:23.:02:26.

's worst nightmare. This is blue on blue action. The Telegraph, the Tory

:02:27.:02:34.

paper, Boris Johnson saying he is fighting for freedom, putting the

:02:35.:02:38.

case the Brexit and just below you have Nato chiefs talking about fears

:02:39.:02:43.

over peace in Europe. An intervention that is designed to

:02:44.:02:47.

follow hot on the heels of David Cameron's warnings today that

:02:48.:02:54.

Britain leaving would increase the threat of Europe descending into

:02:55.:02:59.

war. We may get a TV debate out of this in the next six weeks. If it

:03:00.:03:03.

ends up being Boris versus Cameron, Cameron would not want to go near

:03:04.:03:09.

that. They will have to try to tread a careful line between their own

:03:10.:03:15.

party collapsing into internal division and strife and making the

:03:16.:03:21.

positive cases that each side wants to make. How does the Conservative

:03:22.:03:28.

Party begin to heal this rift, once all this is over? It doesn't and it

:03:29.:03:34.

does not ready want to, they are enjoying themselves immensely! This

:03:35.:03:40.

is the real deal for the Conservatives, they go through all

:03:41.:03:43.

this malarkey about wanting to run the country, but really they fight

:03:44.:03:47.

each other on Europe. They have been doing it for a generation, a lot of

:03:48.:03:51.

them joined the party because they are one way or the other new. This

:03:52.:03:56.

is Tory tooth and claw. How they heal afterwards, they do not heal

:03:57.:04:03.

afterwards, they take the fight to another generation. The leader of

:04:04.:04:07.

the winning side could potentially becomes the next leader. If Britain

:04:08.:04:12.

goes the Brexit, Boris Johnson is in a prime position to get supporters,

:04:13.:04:19.

backbenchers. In this photo it looks like he is bleeding from the lips.

:04:20.:04:25.

He is imploring the public. There was a close-up of his shoes, he had

:04:26.:04:32.

a massive hole! Do you think he has tapped his shirt in in this picture?

:04:33.:04:41.

You never know. Boris has got himself in some diplomatic hot water

:04:42.:04:45.

and the whole case today was slapping off the Prime Minister's

:04:46.:04:50.

suggestion that you could send Britain to war. It was not just him.

:04:51.:04:56.

For those of us who have followed Boris for a long time, they know in

:04:57.:05:01.

2014 just two years ago, he was busy lauding the European Union for being

:05:02.:05:05.

the reason for peace and prosperity, he contradicts himself. Are you

:05:06.:05:11.

expecting politicians to be consistent? LAUGHTER

:05:12.:05:18.

Let's go to the i. A sign of the continuing use of scare tactics,

:05:19.:05:24.

project fear on both sides. This is exclusive to the in campaign

:05:25.:05:30.

clearly. What the leave campaign has tried to do of late particularly is

:05:31.:05:37.

to fight against this notion that remaining in the EU is remaining

:05:38.:05:42.

with the status quo. A lot of what Boris is doing now is about saying

:05:43.:05:46.

what follows is if we stay in the EU, more risk and more uncertainty,

:05:47.:05:52.

other bits of it will fall apart, we are more at risk in the EU than out

:05:53.:05:57.

of it. The question whether it is the EU's fault for war in Ukraine, I

:05:58.:06:03.

don't know, that is... I cannot think of an analogy, it is so crazy.

:06:04.:06:10.

Yes, Ukraine was interested in joining the EU, that is not the EU's

:06:11.:06:16.

fault. It is a slightly strange thing to say. It is this fight about

:06:17.:06:19.

which option has the most instability. We put a very nice hand

:06:20.:06:32.

to UK. We did try to encourage it. It is interesting. You talk

:06:33.:06:40.

both sides having negative campaigns. That is not really what

:06:41.:06:44.

the public say they want. People want to stay energised and infused.

:06:45.:06:58.

We saw it in Scotland and the big danger of labour and the SNP forming

:06:59.:07:06.

this coalition that got the Conservatives the election. It did

:07:07.:07:11.

not work in London. It didn't. There are separate issues there though.

:07:12.:07:19.

London... There are issues of race, London is a very diverse and liberal

:07:20.:07:27.

city. People... Many people that the Tory campaign managed to come out

:07:28.:07:31.

and vote because of the fear campaign, but they were offset by

:07:32.:07:35.

people who are predominantly in a Labour city feeling energised to

:07:36.:07:41.

come out and vote. I don't want to consider the Labour mayoral race all

:07:42.:07:45.

night, because we have done it for weeks and weeks, but what I would

:07:46.:07:49.

say is, Hugo, is there a positive message that the Leave campaign can

:07:50.:07:55.

put out there and is there a positive message that the in

:07:56.:07:59.

campaign can put out there? To put that question the other way round,

:08:00.:08:04.

it is harder for the in campaign as the status quo, to defend the status

:08:05.:08:07.

quo with a positive message is tricky. You are not promising any

:08:08.:08:12.

sort of change. A campaign in which you are defending the status quo

:08:13.:08:16.

will buy the assessor TBE project fear, you are talking about a risk

:08:17.:08:21.

of change. -- will be by necessity project fear. You can talk about the

:08:22.:08:27.

benefits of deregulation, sovereignty with the Leave campaign,

:08:28.:08:32.

they bang on about that quite a lot. Have you fallen asleep yet? That is

:08:33.:08:37.

the problem isn't it? These things do come down to fear. I wrote a

:08:38.:08:44.

column in The Times a few weeks ago, fear is a perfectly good reason to

:08:45.:08:49.

base your decision on. It is not surprising that the Leave campaign

:08:50.:08:54.

comes down to fear as well, they are asking people to face the

:08:55.:08:57.

consequences of not making the change they want to make. I wonder

:08:58.:09:01.

about the consequences of staying in as well. I know about the status

:09:02.:09:07.

quo... But those people who have jobs, not losing your job is a

:09:08.:09:13.

positive case. It is slightly about fear. All sorts of... We are

:09:14.:09:25.

struggling. French food is nice, the cheeses! LAUGHTER

:09:26.:09:30.

Type think we had just explained why we are seeing project fear from both

:09:31.:09:36.

sides of this to I think. Do not vote for Brexit warn US defence

:09:37.:09:46.

chiefs. This is more on the reverend decision. The Americans have been

:09:47.:09:50.

very keen on having their say, President Obama, Hillary Clinton,

:09:51.:09:53.

Donald Trump just a few days ago suggesting that Brexit may draw

:09:54.:10:01.

parallels between mass immigration and suggesting that if we did not

:10:02.:10:05.

leave the EU, it would be better for Britain to leave the EU, unless it

:10:06.:10:09.

wanted to suffer huge amounts of immigration in his words. Now we

:10:10.:10:16.

have the 13 former US secretary of state and security advisers,

:10:17.:10:21.

everyone who has worked in the White House for the last 14 years, big

:10:22.:10:26.

names like Madeline Albright, the former Secretary of State and former

:10:27.:10:30.

CIA chiefs. They are making the same sort of argument is that you have

:10:31.:10:34.

heard about Britain being not just less safe outside of the EU, but

:10:35.:10:41.

saying you cannot rely on the US as your first and foremost allied to

:10:42.:10:44.

make up for all the things you will lose in terms of defence by leaving

:10:45.:10:49.

the European Union. The Americans are really throwing everything at

:10:50.:10:53.

this it seems. Is this because of the special relationship or do they

:10:54.:10:56.

genuinely believe that Brexit will be a disaster for Britain? I think a

:10:57.:11:03.

bit of both. There are voices on both sides, Donald Trump, who cares

:11:04.:11:06.

what he says about Britain, no one cares what he says. Only Muslims can

:11:07.:11:12.

go to Birmingham, I mean for goodness sake. This really matters

:11:13.:11:19.

for the Brexit campaign. Their whole notion of what Europe would be

:11:20.:11:27.

outside... That is why there was so upset by Obama. The creeping threat

:11:28.:11:35.

of Remain is as so often when American politicians talk loudly

:11:36.:11:38.

about something, you do nurse the suspicion that they are talking

:11:39.:11:43.

about it more for America's benefits than ours. It is easy to the heart

:11:44.:11:47.

it suits America's interests that Britain stays in the EU. You have to

:11:48.:11:52.

have a nagging suspicion that for all these many people, yes there are

:11:53.:11:56.

a lot of them, but for all these many people, that may come first,

:11:57.:12:00.

even if they are right, which I'm sure they are. Jeremy Corbyn admits

:12:01.:12:06.

that Labour still has it all to prove and he accepts they are not

:12:07.:12:11.

doing enough to win in 2020. The parties seem to have problems with

:12:12.:12:17.

party unity at the moment. This is a party meeting of the Labour Party

:12:18.:12:21.

this afternoon and Jeremy Corbyn and current hero Sadiq Khan both

:12:22.:12:27.

appeared before the committee. It is quite interesting. Before the

:12:28.:12:33.

hearing we got word is released to the media as to what he was going to

:12:34.:12:38.

say and then after the meeting, they came out and said that is not quite

:12:39.:12:44.

what he said. He did not deliver a tough sounding message on showing

:12:45.:12:51.

all the dirty laundry in front of the press. He also turned down,

:12:52.:12:57.

talked around, some of the comments he was going to give. Expressing the

:12:58.:13:01.

same general view, but not with quite the specific points we were

:13:02.:13:05.

expecting him to make from e-mails received in the press team. The main

:13:06.:13:11.

point is that he is saying that in general, the election result at the

:13:12.:13:15.

end of last week were good for a book, but not good enough. He seems

:13:16.:13:22.

to have listened to some of his biggest detractors in the party,

:13:23.:13:26.

including Sadiq Khan who he met properly for the best time since he

:13:27.:13:29.

was elected as mayor just hours before. -- were good for Labour.

:13:30.:13:37.

Sadiq Khan has been banging on about the Labour Party not just

:13:38.:13:40.

encouraging its own activists and supporters, but it needs to reach

:13:41.:13:44.

out to people who voted for other political parties and indeed no

:13:45.:13:47.

political parties and encourage them into the big tent. It is the first

:13:48.:13:52.

time Jeremy Corbyn has acknowledged you cannot concentrate on the core

:13:53.:13:55.

vote. You need to be broader than that. Where MPs sitting there

:13:56.:14:01.

thinking I wish it was Mr Khan who is leader of the party? -- were.

:14:02.:14:11.

Yes, I am sure that is the case. It has been overshadowed by his victory

:14:12.:14:17.

in London. Over the last ten days or so, Sadiq Khan has been saying

:14:18.:14:21.

astonishing things about Labour. He has been attacking Jeremy Corbyn

:14:22.:14:25.

more by insinuation than by name, but he has been attacking Jeremy

:14:26.:14:30.

Corbyn more than Boris attacks Cameron. During the anti-Semitism

:14:31.:14:33.

row he talked about some of the later leave the -- he talked about

:14:34.:14:41.

some of the Labour members needing courses on what anti-Semitism is. To

:14:42.:14:46.

be outspoken as he has been to reach out to all voters and not rely on

:14:47.:14:49.

the core vote strategy which is Jeremy Corbyn's only strategy. There

:14:50.:14:57.

is real conflict here and Sadiq Khan does not care, because he has

:14:58.:15:04.

nothing to lose, he has one. No more Sadiq Khan, now Mercury. This is a

:15:05.:15:10.

beautiful picture. Hugo is an expert. I think they faked it like

:15:11.:15:18.

they did the moonlighting! LAUGHTER It is the face of the sun. It

:15:19.:15:23.

happens 14 times a century and will happen again in 2019. Panel

:15:24.:15:27.

specialist moments that should happen in the year of the referendum

:15:28.:15:31.

with the European Union. -- an auspicious moment. Does that mean we

:15:32.:15:39.

won't have another one? Maybe. Many thanks for that. One more paper has

:15:40.:15:45.

come in, the Daily Mirror leads with a man has finally face justice for a

:15:46.:15:50.

crime in 1984 after DNA is taken from his daughter. In The Sun, there

:15:51.:16:01.

is a story about EU reform negotiations.

:16:02.:16:04.

Don't forget all the front pages are online on the BBC News website

:16:05.:16:07.

where you can read a detailed review of the papers.

:16:08.:16:23.

It's all there for you - seven days a week at

:16:24.:16:25.

bbc.co.uk/papers - and you can see us there too -

:16:26.:16:28.

with each night's edition of The Papers being posted

:16:29.:16:30.

on the page shortly after we've finished.

:16:31.:16:31.

Thank you Pippa Crerar and Hugo Rifkind.

:16:32.:16:33.

Very warm for some, very wet for others. The top temperatures were

:16:34.:16:39.

across the Isle of Skye,

:16:40.:16:40.

No need to wait until tomorrow morning to see what's in the papers - tune in for a lively and informed conversation about the next day's headlines.
