This is not true. He has in the past condemned and Islamic State. The BBC

:00:00.:00:00.

now it is time for the papers. Hello and welcome to our look ahead

:00:07.:00:19.

to what the papers will be With me are the Editor-in-Chief

:00:20.:00:22.

of MoneyWeek, Merryn Somerset Webb, and the Political Editor

:00:23.:00:25.

of the Daily Record, Let's have a look at some other

:00:26.:00:33.

front pages. Thousands of patients have become trapped in hospitals

:00:34.:00:36.

because of failures in social care. It says the NHS is having to foot

:00:37.:00:42.

and ?800 million bill for elderly bed blockers. The Metro leads on the

:00:43.:00:47.

strikes in France which are causing major fuel shortages. The paper says

:00:48.:00:51.

British holiday-makers risk getting stranded after half the country's

:00:52.:00:56.

petrol pumps will run dry. The Guardian carries a picture of

:00:57.:01:00.

migrants and refugees scrambling for their lives after their heavily

:01:01.:01:05.

laden boat capsized in the southern Mediterranean. They managed to save

:01:06.:01:09.

500 people in a mission migration experts described as miraculous. The

:01:10.:01:14.

Daily Telegraph has that your Matic picture too. He leads on official

:01:15.:01:18.

projections suggesting the population in England is to rise by

:01:19.:01:22.

4 million as areas in the south swell by up to a quarter. In the

:01:23.:01:28.

Times, British special forces fired a missile to destroy an Islamic

:01:29.:01:32.

State truck packed with explosives in Libya earlier this month. We will

:01:33.:01:38.

start with the Daily Telegraph. The population to rise by 4 million.

:01:39.:01:46.

Below it, it has a caption, EU referendum. Clearly this story will

:01:47.:01:54.

feed in the debate. If you read the whole story you will see that half

:01:55.:01:59.

this rise in population is purely down to an ageing population. Only

:02:00.:02:05.

half is about Newham -- new immigration. It feeds into

:02:06.:02:10.

everyone's anxieties about pressure on social services and the NHS and

:02:11.:02:16.

education. This is about helping councils plan for a rising influx in

:02:17.:02:22.

people. That will be discussed a lot over the next four weeks. As those

:02:23.:02:30.

supporting Brexit, if we can get more control of our borders, they

:02:31.:02:34.

would argue, by leaving the European Union, we're not going to have

:02:35.:02:39.

250,000 EU migrants who came to this country up to September of last

:02:40.:02:43.

year. If they think they can stop migration by doing the EU, they have

:02:44.:02:47.

another thing coming. It does not feed into the debate. It adds fire

:02:48.:02:55.

to the debate. The economic argument with the devastating bombardment of

:02:56.:03:01.

economic against Brexit, they will move onto the ground which is their

:03:02.:03:07.

strength, immigration. This feeds back into the economic argument.

:03:08.:03:12.

One, session is about, are we seeing wages pushed down by a rise in

:03:13.:03:18.

immigration? You can see that again wages are coming expectations. These

:03:19.:03:27.

stories do dovetail. Quite an interesting speech by Gordon Brown

:03:28.:03:32.

in Brussels today. He said, we will face massive immigration. People are

:03:33.:03:37.

sceptical about Europe, so give them a deal, like the Scots got in their

:03:38.:03:44.

referendum. If areas are under pressure, make sure there is a

:03:45.:03:51.

migration fund. If schools are under pressure, hospitals are under

:03:52.:03:56.

pressure and public services are under pressure, that is when people

:03:57.:04:02.

start resenting immigration. If that can be dealt with, people on the

:04:03.:04:06.

whole say they are not against immigration. Nobody is really making

:04:07.:04:12.

the argument. Europe needs immigrants because the population is

:04:13.:04:20.

ageing. The point is, it is Britain being able to have control of this.

:04:21.:04:27.

They say, we do need to be able to take control of the people coming

:04:28.:04:31.

in. That would be their argument. One of the things I do not think

:04:32.:04:38.

those wanting to leave the EU have not been clear about is that leaving

:04:39.:04:47.

the uterus not mean... Different deal for different groups of

:04:48.:04:51.

professions or working areas. We know for example that large-scale

:04:52.:04:59.

immigration affects wages at the Berry, very bottom end of the scale.

:05:00.:05:06.

If you wanted to control immigration policies, perhaps he would bring in

:05:07.:05:11.

different people with different skills. We use our tax credit

:05:12.:05:23.

system. Liberty is prosecuted. You come back to the argument about the

:05:24.:05:30.

minimum wage subsidising the global multinationals. Moving off the

:05:31.:05:32.

paper, sorry. We are here for a nice, lovely

:05:33.:05:50.

discussion. You talk about whatever you want to talk about. It is not a

:05:51.:05:53.

problem. We're going to talk about the photograph on the front of the

:05:54.:05:56.

Guardian. The flip side of the migration debate. Look at this

:05:57.:05:58.

picture. A boat on its side about to capsized. Some actually died. I've

:05:59.:06:06.

had in 50 souls came off and 50 died in aim and recovery. This image

:06:07.:06:15.

shows the boat going down. It was taken by the Italian coastguard.

:06:16.:06:25.

They took 550 off the capsized boat. The images will be in all of the

:06:26.:06:29.

papers tomorrow. In the last two days, Monday and Tuesday this week,

:06:30.:06:35.

they have taken 5600 people ashore from the Mediterranean. Hundreds of

:06:36.:06:39.

thousands more are coming this summer. It, as we know, is a massive

:06:40.:06:50.

crisis facing Europe. We do not know how to deal with this. Now onto the

:06:51.:06:59.

Financial Times. The UK would face tortuous trade talks in the event of

:07:00.:07:04.

Brexit. This comes from the world Trade Organisation. One of these

:07:05.:07:08.

central campaigns as if we left the European Union we could have free

:07:09.:07:14.

trade. The WTO is saying, it would be hell. This is interesting. I am

:07:15.:07:20.

under the impression we could stay in the WTO and that would not be

:07:21.:07:25.

much of a problem. Do you support Brexit? Absolutely. Time after time

:07:26.:07:32.

these things come out. When you look at the detail they are not as awful

:07:33.:07:36.

as a Sample. I have thought the default position would be to trade

:07:37.:07:41.

under WTO rules. How tortuous would it be to stay? It is impossible to

:07:42.:07:46.

say at this point. When you look at a list of the members, virtually

:07:47.:07:50.

every country you can think of is a member. I find difficult to imagine

:07:51.:07:53.

the UK would be one of the few countries in the world but did not

:07:54.:07:59.

have access to it. I am sure we would have access to it. It would

:08:00.:08:04.

take years and years. There are different deals with different

:08:05.:08:12.

countries. In short, the WTO is repeating what President Obama said,

:08:13.:08:17.

back of the queue. There is not a queue. On the back of IMF, the World

:08:18.:08:26.

Bank, the Treasury. EasyJet. Everybody says Britain would be

:08:27.:08:38.

worse off. The economic consensus. Big trade organisations prefer a

:08:39.:08:41.

status quo to change. It is the same. What the Remain camp has been

:08:42.:08:48.

doing is pounding this case about the risk, project

:08:49.:08:59.

fear two, they are calling it. It will be interesting tomorrow. We may

:09:00.:09:13.

find that the Vote League side comes up with more economic arguments. Has

:09:14.:09:20.

this changed your mind question what -- Leave. I think there will be a

:09:21.:09:34.

lot more interesting things to say. Three plus weeks to go. I am

:09:35.:09:40.

throwing things at you now! This story assumes we lead the single

:09:41.:09:47.

market and that is a big assumption. Consensus is that if we left the

:09:48.:09:50.

European Union the single market is over. What are you suggesting! We

:09:51.:09:59.

will stick with the Financial Times. Hillary Clinton is in a bit of

:10:00.:10:04.

trouble. Her private e-mail server she kept while the Secretary of

:10:05.:10:07.

State. She should not have done that. Is has dogged Hillary for

:10:08.:10:14.

years. She used a private e-mail address and a private server. A

:10:15.:10:21.

massive breach of security protocol. This will be dragged up. Donald

:10:22.:10:32.

Trump will do this. They are already calling him a crooked Hillary

:10:33.:10:39.

Clinton. He is not a relation of mine. He is from the same village as

:10:40.:10:45.

my mother. Eye over eight that ever so slightly. He is in trouble

:10:46.:11:03.

himself. -- I over eight that. I wonder how it will affect matters.

:11:04.:11:06.

It will not affect Republican support. It is about those who are

:11:07.:11:15.

undecided. The Democrats are so anti-Clinton that they are willing

:11:16.:11:22.

to vote to keep her out. She is not found to have done anything illegal.

:11:23.:11:33.

They are still looking into it. We have a problem. We are heading to

:11:34.:11:37.

France in the next couple of days and they have a petrol crisis. After

:11:38.:11:43.

petrol chaos as drivers head for France. You will have to fill up

:11:44.:11:57.

here, would you? They are talking about chaos. The AA has already been

:11:58.:12:04.

picking up cars from the side of the road in France. We did this first.

:12:05.:12:13.

We had petrol strikes and blockades of refineries way back in 2000. The

:12:14.:12:19.

eight days that Shook the Blair government. The industrial action

:12:20.:12:30.

nearly ran Britain drive. It is so much better in France with burning

:12:31.:12:36.

tyres, riots and burning police cars. They are better at labour

:12:37.:12:44.

disputes than we are. The Labour reforms have been so watered down

:12:45.:12:47.

that not even bosses want them anymore. Train ticket clippers are

:12:48.:12:56.

facing the end of the nine. I did not know they were still about. We

:12:57.:13:02.

did actually look at one of my train ticket earlier and see that it did

:13:03.:13:06.

have a hole in it. I can see how that would be painful over time. OK.

:13:07.:13:12.

Many thanks for looking at some of the stories behind the headlines.

:13:13.:13:18.

Very many thanks. Thank you for watching.
