Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers
With me are Caroline Wheeler, who is the political editor
at the Sunday Express, and the journalist Eva Simpson.
Tomorrow's front pages, starting with the Sunday Times,
leads with the much-delayed Chilcott Report into the Iraq War.
The paper claims the report will deliver a brutal
verdict on senior government figures, including Tony Blair.
The Sunday Telegraph leads with the EU referendum.
It says a Government leak has laid bare
The Mail on Sunday has a warning from high street bosses.
They say prices will soar if Britain leaves the EU.
It reports 12 million Turkish migrants will head to the UK
And the Sunday Post has a full-page photo of some
of the aftermath of the Scottish Cup final at Hampden Park.
So let's begin, and do you want to kick off this power, Eva, and we
will start with the Sunday Times. The delayed Chilcott Inquiry, and
they talk about brutal verdict. They have spoken with an anonymous source
who they haven't named who has spoken with sources close to this
report will stop he has said that Tony Blair is going to be savaged.
Jack Straw also. He will not be let off the hook. And they are the
preparations for the war, the aftermath, and what happened there
are all going to be laid bare. There was a fear for a lot of families who
lost loved ones, who lost soldiers who died, who felt they would be a
whitewash. They have waited seven years for this, it has been a long
time coming and I think for them it will take some comfort in knowing it
won't be a whitewash, and actually the finger of blame will be pointed
at the people who were at the top. And we have to stress that this has
not been verified by anybody, it has come from this anonymous source who
has been close to the enquiry. In many ways a report of this nature
and of this volume and costs, you would expect it to come up with some
kind of substantive verdict on what happened. For a long time now there
has been reports that it would be somehow redacted, that spooks would
go over it and remove some of the most sensitive passages so it really
will come as some kind of comfort if this story proves to be true, to the
families, that they are actually going to get some kind of answer
about why Britain was taken into the Iraq War, and why these claims of
weapons of mass destruction were made in the first race will. Back
and it will also look at the aftermath of the failings which
happened after. According to this piece in the Sunday Times, this is
where Jack Straw comes in for the most criticism, because the
preparation and planning for what happened after they toppled Saddam
Hussein was not vigorous enough and this is why potentially it has sort
of created this problem, the rise of ISIS as a direct result of this poor
planning. But this hasn't happened straight away, we should stress that
Chilcott Inquiry will not happen until after the referendum is
concluded. The sixth of July, is the date at the moment. And we have
already seen Tony Blair make its move, six months ago he did CNN
programme, doing the sort of mea culpa thing, quite different to
where he appeared at the enquiry and said he hadn't done anything wrong
and would do it again. Talking of the EU referendum, this is our story
about a poll conducted by a large polling company in Turkey. Turkey
has been on the news agenda for a while now ever since an agreement to
allow visa-free travel. This is trying to stop the flow of migrants
coming from Turkey. And Turkey has long had an ambition to join the
European Union, an ambition until recently supported by our Prime
Minister who said only two years ago that Europe would be weaker without
Turkey in it. So there has been lots of comments made about what the
impact of Turkey joining the European Union would be, especially
in terms of migrants coming to this country and putting a strain on our
sort of public services. Basically it was suggested that we wanted to
find out exactly what the intention of people in Turkey would be if they
ever got to that point where they were a member of the European Union,
and with that comes obviously free movement which would enable them to
come not only as far as the Schengen zone, which is what happens with
this visa-free travel, but actually to come into Britain and the answer
we got back was that extend the of those survey had said that they
would want to make Britain venue at home, that they would come to seek
work -- Britain venue home. Many were young people who are finding it
difficult to get a job in Turkey. Not too surprising. And as David
Davis says, he has some sympathy with those people who would perhaps
want to come to Britain for a better life, given... It would have to be
asked across Europe if unemployed students in Germany, France, many
countries, if they wanted to go to a more wealthy, the world's
fifth-largest economy, they probably would want to do that. No-one that
obviously is something that has been happening. That is why Britain has
become a bit of a magnet given that we have a higher wage society, et
cetera. 12 million is a huge number and a very large proportion of
Turkey's population. To be clear, are we talking about people who want
to come to Europe or the UK? Come to the UK. The question which was asked
was if Turkey was to become a member of the European Union and Britain
was to remain a member, because of course if we voted to leave it would
never happen. So a lot of ifs. Pretty much every story from the
European Union is and if and but in the maybe. You often find it is more
of a trickle than a flood. I wouldn't quite say that even
of a trickle than a flood. I wouldn't quite say that given that
it is 200,000 a year coming in. There were camera crews waiting for
the apparent big flood of Bulgarians who were supposed to come, it was a
handful of people coming through. That was a reason for doing the
poll. Rather than these stories, Michael Gove suggesting 5 million,
we were trying to get something from the very people that it actually
affects rather than just ask summarising and surmising what the
situation might be. Takers on the Mail on Sunday. -- take us on.
Unsurprisingly they are keeping with the EU theme and they have the
headline which says that High Street bosses are telling us that prices
will soar if we leave the EU. They have spoken to four Former High St
losses, pretty well-known, Tesco's, says Breeze, Marks Spencer 's and
they have all said that leaving the EU would have a devastating effect
on the economy -- Sainsburys. He and people are looking for some facts to
grasp onto as they make their decision whether to stay and leave
and stories like this which are quite surprising to read from the
Mail on Sunday but I'm sure people will read that and if they weren't
already scared about leaving it would make them quite fearful. This
is the kind of thing people are interested, we have had Iain Duncan
Smith calling George Osborne Pinocchio. And we also heard the
Chancellor talking about house prices yesterday, and it depends
what it is that is your reason for voting. I think in the election if
you look at the Conservative strategy at the general election it
was very much to show the dangers of voting Labour to the economy and
here again they are using the economy as the crux of the argument
that we should stay part of the European Union. Whereas on the flip
side, and we saw that with our front page, the issue of migration is the
one that Brexiteers have latched onto as being the significant
argument they are making as to why we should leave the EU. It is
interesting that two different takes are being taken by these different
sides. The Sunday Telegraph talking about trade, it seems to be saying
that they are suggesting that Europe is in some way stymieing free trade,
particularly countries such as France are really having a bit of a
protectionist attitude towards the free trade deal that we as a
European bloc are trying to pursue in relation to places like Latin
America. It is selling us this idea that it is costing us ?2.5 billion
to the British economy by the fact that we are not able to EU deals.
And it is feeding into our fears because a lot of people think that
about the EU, that it is trying to block our deals, unnecessary money
of hours. But that is not huge if you compare it to the amount of
money generated by trade with the EU. Well, I think billions, when you
start talking about billions, if we think about the NHS for example, and
that is the argument the Brexiteers have been making, that a couple of
billion would make a huge impact on the sustainability of the NHS. It is
interesting to see the Telegraph warning us about this problem with
free trade and impacting on our economy but they have also done an
interview with the transport Secretary, Patrick McLoughlin, this
is all within the same piece, where he shows the flip side of the
argument and says that if we leave the European Union it would have an
impact on our varied buoyant car industry. You would think people
would get bored of this, but we still have a month to go! It is so
important, I hope not. Let's talk about something a little bit
different. Caroline, let's talk about your page to back. Yes, in
some ways this hasn't had a huge amount of coverage. But there was
publication of some funding figures at the beginning of the year. The
Department of Health announced it would reduce funding to our
high-street chemists which are largely supported by government
money. Basically the argument the government make is do we need as
many high-street chemists as we currently have? It is true that when
you walk down the high street you might see two or three in the space
of a very short period of time but actually the results have been that
the government's own figures have shown it could kill off a quarter of
our high-street chemist. We are constantly being told go to your
chemist first. They are such a wealth of information. And they are
saying that actually there are 50 million GP appointments every year
where you could actually be better dealt with by your high-street
chemist and indeed 8% of people who turn up at Accident and Emergency
would be better off going to a chemist. It will be on the agenda
next week as a petition has been signed by a whopping 1 million
people being delivered to Downing Street which is the largest ever
health petition, on Tuesday. And Labour frontbench spokesman will be
leaving this debate on Tuesday. And there was a little football match
apparently. I don't know. I'm sure you watched it. The FA Cup final,
which Manchester United were successful, beating underdogs
Crystal Palace, and yet we hear that the manager is going to get the
elbow, to be replaced by the former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho.
Imagine that, you would want to go out and have a a few drinks and
celebrate, you would want to celebrate with the players. It seems
a bit mean. But I think from people who know far more about this than I
do, Manchester haven't had a fantastic season, they haven't
qualified for the Champions League, they have won a bit of silverware
but it is just not enough for a club of their standing and magnitude.
They should be grateful for what they have got. I'm sure lots of
football fans like my husband who supports Rovers would be very
grateful for that. If you have spent what they have spent on the team, it
is not enough. I want to take us on to this very important story on the
front page of the Sunday Times, and that is school bans whistle as too
aggressive. The noise is felt to be too aggressive. And this is the kind
of long line of things which have been banned in schools, winning was
banned, and conkers, and things that are somehow are not supposed to be
good for the psychological welfare of our children. So just to talk at
Drewitt, a school in Buckinghamshire has said that at the end of playtime
they are not going to blow the whistle, because it might frighten
children and is too aggressive sounding. What they will do is put
their hand in the air. If you have ever been in a school playground, I
don't know how effective that will be. My memory is of a deafening
bell, if you are standing underneath it. What about games and that sort
of stuff, surely they still need a whistle? Professor Alan Smith is
saying how our children going to be able to play football and hockey
without the use of whistles? It sounds completely crazy, and sounds
a bit crazy to me. She does still have the whistle in her pocket. For
emergencies. If they don't see her raise her hand. And it is a
handcarved whistle which is going to be in her pocket. Possibly that
might not be so shrill? Is a brilliant cartoon showing a
teacher, a child smoking by the bike sheds and she says phew, for a
second there I thought you had a whistle in your mouth.
Coming up next, it is The Film Review.
