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

:00:14.:00:17.

With me are Caroline Wheeler, who's the political editor

:00:18.:00:20.

at the Sunday Express, and the journalist Eva Simpson.

:00:21.:00:24.

Tomorrow's front pages, starting with...

:00:25.:00:28.

The Sunday Times leads with the much-delayed

:00:29.:00:30.

It says it will deliver in its words a brutal verdict

:00:31.:00:35.

on senior government figures, including Tony Blair.

:00:36.:00:40.

The Sunday Telegraph leads with the EU referendum.

:00:41.:00:42.

It says a government leak has laid bare a trade war

:00:43.:00:45.

The Mail on Sunday has a warning from high street bosses.

:00:46.:00:51.

They say prices will soar if Britain leaves the EU.

:00:52.:00:55.

It reports 12 million Turkish migrants will head to the UK

:00:56.:01:00.

And the Post has a full-page photo of some of the aftermath

:01:01.:01:06.

of the Scottish Cup final at Hampden Park.

:01:07.:01:17.

Caroline, we start with the express. Talk is through your front page.

:01:18.:01:24.

There has been a lot of talk about turkey ever since there was an

:01:25.:01:28.

agreement to give these free travel to the migrants in exchange for help

:01:29.:01:34.

to do with the migration problem. Turkey has long wanted to become a

:01:35.:01:39.

member of the European Union and some people have suggested that will

:01:40.:01:44.

eventually happen which is why they are arguing that turkey's succession

:01:45.:01:50.

is very much on the polling card at the forthcoming referendum. We

:01:51.:01:55.

wanted to find out what this could potentially mean for Britain if

:01:56.:01:58.

turkey did become a member of the European Union. We did a poll. It

:01:59.:02:06.

was a fairly extensive poll in the 27 provinces of Turkey. We

:02:07.:02:12.

interviewed more than 2600 adults. 16% said they would want to make a

:02:13.:02:20.

new life for themselves in Britain. The majority of those who wanted to

:02:21.:02:23.

come were students and young people looking for a better life. The cost

:02:24.:02:30.

of living is fairly low in Turkey and higher over here so it will be a

:02:31.:02:36.

very attractive prospect to people. 12 million sounds like an enormous

:02:37.:02:41.

number. Tell us more about how you came to these conclusions because

:02:42.:02:45.

these are young people... Why not Germany? That was the question they

:02:46.:02:52.

were asked, if you became a member of the European Union and given the

:02:53.:02:57.

opportunity of free movement, would they want to Britain? The result

:02:58.:03:01.

came back that 15.8% of them said yes they would like to bring their

:03:02.:03:05.

families to Britain to live and work. If you are asking students and

:03:06.:03:10.

unemployed people whether they would like to come to Britain, the vast

:03:11.:03:19.

majority of them would say why not? David Davis said the same thing. He

:03:20.:03:24.

said if you look at this, I have some sympathy with people who would

:03:25.:03:29.

want to come to Britain. It doesn't then mean that 1 million people will

:03:30.:03:34.

suddenly descend upon Britain because that is scary numbers.

:03:35.:03:40.

People see those figures and think it doesn't add up. There is a big

:03:41.:03:43.

difference between someone wanting to do something and doing something.

:03:44.:03:49.

If it joins the EU, would it go to the UK? That if you're still a big

:03:50.:03:55.

question. When it comes down to it, a lot will be made of Turkey over

:03:56.:04:00.

the next couple of days. That will be then the next big dry. On one

:04:01.:04:05.

side, the league side accusing migration is their big tool where is

:04:06.:04:10.

the remain cider using the threat of the economy as their trump card.

:04:11.:04:16.

David Cameron has been a key supporter of Turkey joining the

:04:17.:04:19.

European Union until recently and we have to think about what might

:04:20.:04:23.

happen in the future. The argument that some people are making are not

:04:24.:04:27.

about what Europe will look like but they are saying it's an expanding

:04:28.:04:31.

bloc and there are several states, not just Turkey, who want to become

:04:32.:04:35.

members. They will not join overnight. To present it as 12

:04:36.:04:42.

million people... You read that headline and think, you would fear

:04:43.:04:49.

the worst. To be fair, I don't think anybody has suggested it will happen

:04:50.:04:53.

overnight. They are saying you just need to be conscious about what

:04:54.:04:57.

could happen in the future and the fact of the matter is, despite we

:04:58.:05:02.

are facing, everybody is billing as a once-in-a-lifetime, once in a

:05:03.:05:05.

generation opportunity to have our say on Europe. This is something

:05:06.:05:12.

that needs to be on our agenda and needs to be part of our thought

:05:13.:05:16.

processes we make a decision in the run-up to polling. Take this on to

:05:17.:05:24.

the mail. Surprise surprise... They have spoken to four former bosses

:05:25.:05:34.

from Tesco's, Sainsbury's, Marks Spencers and B who have said

:05:35.:05:39.

prices will soar if we lead the EU. This is something that will resonate

:05:40.:05:43.

with a lot of people because a lot of us have been thinking, how does

:05:44.:05:48.

this vote impact us whether we leave? This is something we can look

:05:49.:05:52.

at directly and is something that will impact us. Coming from the

:05:53.:05:56.

people it is coming from, these are household names in terms of high

:05:57.:06:01.

Street, if we see them saying prices will soar, this is something that

:06:02.:06:06.

will cause fear and make us worry. These of the shops where The Mail on

:06:07.:06:11.

Sunday readers will clearly be shopping. We wandered where Waitrose

:06:12.:06:16.

was! But low and behold, it's halfway down. It said their views

:06:17.:06:22.

were echoed last night. They have got the full array here. It feels

:06:23.:06:29.

like it is getting stronger, the whole debate. A lot of people are

:06:30.:06:33.

undecided, they don't know which way to vote, but it seems to me that the

:06:34.:06:40.

Conservatives have given us this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to

:06:41.:06:45.

vote whether we want to leave or remain but they have given us this

:06:46.:06:49.

vote and the same time they are saying, if you leave, its

:06:50.:06:54.

disastrous, it's... We don't know which way to turn. Halfway down this

:06:55.:07:00.

story, the findings of these big retail giants is welcomed by the

:07:01.:07:04.

Prime Minister directly which makes me wonder where the story might have

:07:05.:07:08.

come from. Let's go to the Sunday Telegraph. They are talking about

:07:09.:07:13.

trade wars as well. It seems the essence of this story is to suggest

:07:14.:07:18.

there are secret government documents that suggest that Europe

:07:19.:07:24.

is stifling free trade and some of the French in particular are

:07:25.:07:27.

protectionist and blocking free trade that could benefit Britain to

:07:28.:07:32.

the tune of ?2.5 billion. So that is one of the claims they are making

:07:33.:07:36.

him. Almost suggesting that Europe does not do ask that many great

:07:37.:07:40.

favours. It's what a lot of people think anyway. It's out to do was in

:07:41.:07:47.

and take away more money from us. But to make sure it's truly

:07:48.:07:52.

balanced, we also see the intervention of the Transport

:07:53.:07:55.

Secretary who issues a very stark warning about the future Britain's

:07:56.:08:01.

car industry, saying if we vote to leave, the industry which employs

:08:02.:08:05.

200,000 people will be jeopardised in effect. He has done an interview

:08:06.:08:10.

with the Sunday Telegraph, spelling out his fears for Toyota and Nissan,

:08:11.:08:14.

who have big patches in this country. Take us onto the back page

:08:15.:08:20.

of mail. I hear you are a bit of a football fan. I am a neutral fan. I

:08:21.:08:29.

do follow football and the premiership and I did watch the FA

:08:30.:08:38.

Cup final. Standard baby to me! It was a brilliant game. As a neutral,

:08:39.:08:43.

I was more on the side of Crystal Palace because they are the

:08:44.:08:48.

underdogs. They played fantastically but sadly, it wasn't to be. I'm just

:08:49.:08:54.

United won their first bit of silverware the two years. Louis van

:08:55.:08:57.

Gaal much under fire, under pressure. How do you feel for him

:08:58.:09:01.

this evening? He delivers the goods and now it seems he gets the heave

:09:02.:09:09.

Ho. How gutting is that? Better to leave on a hide then go out on a

:09:10.:09:14.

whimper. So crystal palace, bad night for them, but in terms of the

:09:15.:09:20.

game itself? Manchester United were the favourites to win so it's not a

:09:21.:09:23.

great surprise they won but watching as a neutral, it was thrilling. It

:09:24.:09:32.

went to extra time. I know everyone hates penalties but everyone

:09:33.:09:36.

secretly loves them but it was a thrilling enjoyable game. As a

:09:37.:09:40.

non-football fan, had Crystal Palace one, it would've been the first

:09:41.:09:44.

major trophy ever. Does that engage a fan? I think of Leicester's

:09:45.:09:55.

triumph this season. Even that was all over the today programme. You

:09:56.:10:02.

could really... Is a neutral and somebody not desperately interested,

:10:03.:10:07.

even I watch the game that finally gave them the trophy. That's unusual

:10:08.:10:14.

for someone like me. The husband gave me a three line whip! Another

:10:15.:10:20.

person we want to be feeling sorry for, lost it now, front page of the

:10:21.:10:29.

fund a Telegraph, cue the music. This was her big moment. She was to

:10:30.:10:34.

sing the national anthem but unfortunately, she missed her cue,

:10:35.:10:37.

said the music started and she didn't realise she should've started

:10:38.:10:43.

singing. Everyone took to Twitter to completely have a go at her and even

:10:44.:10:48.

she said she was mortified. This was the biggest moment of her career.

:10:49.:10:53.

You can so easily see how it could happen. You can barely hear the

:10:54.:10:58.

music starting. It's the sort of thing you have nightmares about.

:10:59.:11:02.

When you wake up and realise that didn't actually happen. Really

:11:03.:11:06.

pleased. What you actually watching that happen? It was on in the

:11:07.:11:11.

background that bit. If it's any consolation, a lot of people

:11:12.:11:16.

probably missed the beginning of it. But it will be all over YouTube. So

:11:17.:11:25.

she went built to live it down. She will wake up tomorrow and realise it

:11:26.:11:33.

did happen. She kept going. She had the best publicity she possibly had.

:11:34.:11:38.

It must be the worst feeling though when you realise that moment, you

:11:39.:11:47.

are like, oh! The headlines the next day, FA flop, poor thing, at bit

:11:48.:11:52.

unfair. Thanks very much indeed for the moment. We will be back in just

:11:53.:11:56.

under an hour's time for another look at tomorrow morning's papers.

:11:57.:12:02.

Some of them had been delayed a little bit by the double. At 11pm,

:12:03.:12:09.

the Egyptian military releases images of daybreak. French officials

:12:10.:12:18.

confirm snow was detected. Coming up next, reporters.

:12:19.:12:23.
