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

:00:14.:00:16.

With me are Dan Bilefsky, from the New York Times,

:00:17.:00:22.

and Ben Riley Smith, political correspondent

:00:23.:00:23.

The Metro leads on the news that David Cameron has found a pro-EU

:00:24.:00:32.

ally in the New Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan.

:00:33.:00:39.

The pair put on a united front today as they campaigned for Britain

:00:40.:00:42.

to remain in the EU, despite the Prime Minister's

:00:43.:00:45.

criticism of Mr Khan during the mayoral campaign.

:00:46.:00:46.

The International New York Times reports on the sentencing

:00:47.:00:49.

of Issene Habre, the former president of Chad, was sentenced

:00:50.:00:51.

to life in prison on Monday after he was found guilty of crimes

:00:52.:00:54.

against humanity, torture and sex crimes.

:00:55.:01:00.

The Daily Telegraph says that public concern about immigration has given

:01:01.:01:07.

the league campaign a boost. The Guardian front pages about the

:01:08.:01:11.

referendum and it acts with Eric David Cameron kinky Britain in the

:01:12.:01:14.

European Union. The Daily Mail says that ministers had been have been

:01:15.:01:22.

ignoring a string of warnings that Britain's small ports are an easy

:01:23.:01:25.

target for people smuggling. The Times says that the government

:01:26.:01:30.

dismissed concerns about people being smuggled in small boats. The

:01:31.:01:35.

Daily Mirror reports on a new cure for skin cancer.

:01:36.:01:44.

Can we do it? Yes we Khan. David Cameron has had a difficult week. He

:01:45.:02:09.

has been on the stage with Sadiq Khan, who he criticised only weeks

:02:10.:02:13.

ago for saying he was shoulder to shoulder with Muslim extremists.

:02:14.:02:22.

Then he is on a platform with him. He has been criticised for that by

:02:23.:02:27.

those who do not agree with them. It was only last month that he said at

:02:28.:02:37.

the dispatch box that Sadiq Khan's integrity should be questioned. He

:02:38.:02:42.

was making the point that people should not vote for him as mayor.

:02:43.:02:49.

But London date. But now he is calling Sadiq Khan a proud Muslim

:02:50.:02:54.

and saying they are joining together to back able to remain in the EU.

:02:55.:03:00.

Labour has a difficulty turning out its voters. By appearing with these

:03:01.:03:12.

figures he is trying to get Labour faces in the frame showing that

:03:13.:03:21.

Labour wants is to stay in. There are some Conservatives the David

:03:22.:03:24.

Cameron cannot share the platform with just now. He is also appealing

:03:25.:03:36.

to minority voters. Your paper is leading with the appalling on the

:03:37.:03:40.

subject of the referendum which is suggesting that there has been a

:03:41.:03:46.

shift to do with migration. We have been doing polls every fortnight

:03:47.:03:54.

tracking remain against Lee. Since David Cameron came back with the

:03:55.:03:57.

renegotiation deal in February we have seen a decline in support for

:03:58.:04:02.

leaving the EU every fortnight. But this time there is a four point

:04:03.:04:10.

boost for those who want to leave, which is said to be because of

:04:11.:04:18.

immigration. Last week we have seen immigration statistics on the front

:04:19.:04:24.

pages. We have seen concerns about migrants crossing the English

:04:25.:04:30.

Channel and there is no doubt that the out campaign believe they can

:04:31.:04:37.

win on immigration. People who are afraid of immigration are more

:04:38.:04:42.

likely to leave the EU. There were always fears that having a

:04:43.:04:49.

referendum would be problematic in June. We have seen many capsized

:04:50.:04:53.

boats in Italy and horrible images of migrants in the sea. The timing

:04:54.:05:00.

could turn out to be quite difficult. Last summer when Calais

:05:01.:05:08.

was always on the front pages more people appeared to be leaning out

:05:09.:05:14.

the name. Believe campaign say that while we stay inside the European

:05:15.:05:18.

Union we cannot control the numbers because of the freedom of movement.

:05:19.:05:29.

On the front of the Financial Times, Brussels once like touch rules,

:05:30.:05:36.

which is interesting in the context of control and regulation. This is

:05:37.:05:49.

an example where Brussels is fighting from liberalisation and

:05:50.:05:56.

suggesting that companies should not be overregulated by national

:05:57.:06:02.

governments. They think it will increase competition in the European

:06:03.:06:06.

Union. It is a good news Brussels story. You can see how the other

:06:07.:06:16.

side response, saying that they do not want a light touch or a heavy

:06:17.:06:22.

touch. They see any touching from Brussels as a problem. Brussels and

:06:23.:06:27.

the Netherlands and Germany and France have been trying to reel in

:06:28.:06:34.

companies like And birth. Now Brussels are coming in and saying

:06:35.:06:38.

lay-off and have less regulation. This is also the time when

:06:39.:06:43.

Washington is looking at overregulation by Brussels. Champion

:06:44.:06:56.

national champions from Europe. Do think it is deliberate? Maybe that

:06:57.:07:06.

is cynical. It seems like a counter voice. Hedge fund is. They are set

:07:07.:07:23.

to me money on the campaign. We are not allowed to publish exit polls

:07:24.:07:27.

before the 10pm point when people can stop voting, but there is

:07:28.:07:34.

nothing to stop people doing exit polls and using that information.

:07:35.:07:38.

Hedge fund is an investment banks are considering having a private

:07:39.:07:47.

exit poll done so they can place bets on the financial markets. They

:07:48.:07:54.

would argue that they might make more if they know in advance what

:07:55.:07:58.

the result is going to be because what they're doing that there are

:07:59.:08:07.

financial tools. It is hedging. It is a drop in the ocean. With the

:08:08.:08:11.

amount of money that is moving through... Exit polls are quite

:08:12.:08:19.

reliable but in the last election the polls leading up to it were not.

:08:20.:08:28.

The exit polls were bang on and they are more trustworthy. In The Times

:08:29.:08:38.

there is a story that has a link to the EU debate. Ministers have

:08:39.:08:42.

ignored the risk of people trafficking. This was an old the

:08:43.:08:51.

papers today. On Sunday nights there was a dinghy of 18 Albanians that

:08:52.:08:59.

was saved from capsizing just of the border of Kent. There are reports

:09:00.:09:11.

from independent border inspectors and a few months ago the government

:09:12.:09:16.

was saying the risk of people being smuggled in by small boats is not

:09:17.:09:21.

assessed as being significant. They are saying why were the warnings not

:09:22.:09:25.

picked up when we are now seen some of these vessels. We don't know how

:09:26.:09:33.

many there are. How do you place it? The scenes over the top. If you look

:09:34.:09:38.

at what is happening in Italy boats after boat is capsizing. In the

:09:39.:09:45.

British context and have only been one to and the borders are very well

:09:46.:09:53.

pleased. This reaction that suddenly the country is under siege by

:09:54.:09:58.

Albanians is not borne out by what is happening. It is unfortunate that

:09:59.:10:05.

this one vote capsized but it taps into the fear that people have about

:10:06.:10:11.

migration. , but there have not been very many at this point. In the

:10:12.:10:20.

International New York Times you talk about Donald Trump and how

:10:21.:10:29.

close he is with regards to Hillary Clinton. But the polls and not tell

:10:30.:10:36.

the story of the difficulty he would face because of the way that the

:10:37.:10:46.

states divide up. Donald Trump has played into the despair of the

:10:47.:10:49.

working class in America and he's doing well on television and on

:10:50.:10:55.

Twitter. What we're finding is that the Democrats have always one at

:10:56.:11:01.

least 18 states since 1992 which adds up to a large number of

:11:02.:11:08.

electoral votes. Swing states are going to be crucial in this election

:11:09.:11:12.

and they will be difficult for Donald Trump to win. Places like

:11:13.:11:16.

Arizona there is the big Hispanic vote. With all of his race baiting

:11:17.:11:23.

and comments about Mexicans and that muslins cannot come into the country

:11:24.:11:28.

has created a backlash and there is a feeling that perhaps he will have

:11:29.:11:32.

a struggle in swing states because of this backlash. However, it is

:11:33.:11:38.

quite early and polls have been wrong before. It is too early to

:11:39.:11:44.

predict, but he is going to face an uphill battle. But Hillary Clinton

:11:45.:11:51.

is a problematic candidate. The e-mail scandal and Donald Trump is

:11:52.:11:59.

going very hard on her. He has been ramming her over the head. They both

:12:00.:12:07.

divide opinion. What I find fascinating about this guy, you

:12:08.:12:17.

would presume he is right candidate, he wants to build a giant wall

:12:18.:12:23.

between Mexico and America. But he is also hard left. He is against

:12:24.:12:27.

trade deals. He is very protectionist. Here's a hard

:12:28.:12:32.

candidate for Hillary Clinton to pin down. He is hammering her as the

:12:33.:12:40.

establishment. He could be a tricky candidate. There is a debate about

:12:41.:12:51.

what he is like because they can be quite left-wing although his notions

:12:52.:13:01.

on trade are of the wall. But Hillary is treating him as a serious

:13:02.:13:07.

candidate and not fighting back she is legitimising his narrative and

:13:08.:13:13.

what she has been handled for is that she is not fighting back on. He

:13:14.:13:21.

also knows how to communicate. Aim it at a four is what politicians are

:13:22.:13:28.

told. His message seems oversimplistic. But that hammers

:13:29.:13:37.

home. And you remember it. We will end with cricket. Several

:13:38.:13:45.

photographs of Alastair Cook. We have chosen this picture because he

:13:46.:13:48.

has broken the record for 10,000 runs and he is the youngest get

:13:49.:13:58.

there. The quickest person to score 10,000 test runs. He did at 31 years

:13:59.:14:05.

old. Five months younger than the next youngest player. We were

:14:06.:14:10.

hearing praise from other great editors. That included his old

:14:11.:14:18.

batting partner. He will be remembered as one of the greats of

:14:19.:14:25.

English cricket. He is up there. A point of caution. Remember when

:14:26.:14:32.

Tiger Woods was zooming away. But that stalled. Whether he can go on

:14:33.:14:39.

to replicate that remains to be seen but it is an amazing achievement. Do

:14:40.:14:49.

you like cricket? Is there a hockey stick involved. It is an achievement

:14:50.:15:00.

it is a good achievement. Not that long ago he was getting panned as

:15:01.:15:03.

captain and people said his form was not great. That is in the past.

:15:04.:15:06.

Thank you very much. Thank you, Dan Bilefsky,

:15:07.:15:08.

from the New York Times, and Ben Riley Smith,

:15:09.:15:11.

from The Daily Telegraph -
