Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will be
With me are Fay Schlesinger, who's Head of News at The Times
and Kiran Stacey, who's Energy Correspondent at the FT.
Tomorrow's front pages, starting with...
The Financial Times reports that the clothing retailer,
-- the US and UK are battling to keep the biggest trade on track.
Under the headline "killed in the house of horrors" ,
the Metro, leads on the news that a woman and her civil
partner have been convicted of murdering her two-year-old son.
The Daily Telegraph reports that the Vote Leave leaders have
pledged an Australian style points-based immigration system
The Guardian claims British involvement in controversial
rendition operations during the "war on terror" provoked an unprecedented
row between intelligence agencies , MI5 and and MI6.
The Times reports that the US state department has warned American
tourists about the risk of terrorist attacks in Europe this summer.
The Daily Express claims illegal migrants are paying smuggling gangs
The Daily Mail also leads the EU referendum and higher rates the
Leave campaign strategy to reduce immigration.
Let us start with this dread. The Liam Fee. Pictures and all the front
pages. -- this dread. We of Liam Fee. How many inquest that we had in
two cases like this? It is too many. This too good old boy who in 2013
died at the hands of his mother and civil partner in Fife in Scotland.
The element of the score with that Blixed Colin -- of the story that
makes it galling, the system has failed this child. Nursery workers
have been working with Liam Fee and had alerted the authorities.
Something was wrong. He did not look to be well looked after. The social
worker visits the house and is giving a plausible explanation. Goes
away and goes on sick leave and the case is not passed on to anybody
else. He fell through the hole. There was marks on his face and they
covered it with chocolate. It is galling. It is an individual case.
We are seeing a social care system for children that is really
struggling under the weight... We reported in the Times about the
scale of children being reported to social services. One in five
preschool children from 2009 until last year had been reported to
social services. One in five. How does the system cope with checking
out everyone of those reports. If you were trying to recruit for the
social services, it cannot be easy? Inevitably social services will be
criticised because the child slipped through the system. There will be in
negative feedback loop where people see the stories and think that the
last thing they want to do is to get involved in a system like that. A
story like this happens and the people who get blamed, there are the
parents, but as much people are looking for somebody to blame that
they can do something about. The social services get it. It must be a
rewarding profession and they do lots of good work. This is the
nightmare scenario for anybody who works in the service. There is
always going to be cases like this. There is the risk we think that
something is this the men -- systemically wrong. It has been a
while since we have had this. We had a spate a view years ago when he was
a number of cases like this. On the plus side, the story gets lots of
publicity and makes the government aware. It is a sector that needs
money. It is not a sexy sector but it is desperate for money. Let us
focus on the Daily Telegraph. The EU referendum. Three weeks and two days
to go. One of the criticisms about the Leave campaign is that they do
not have formal policies in Britain decides to leave. This is the first
policy on the front page today of a manifesto commitment. It is a
manifesto commitment. Boris Johnson, Michael Gove, and pretty Patel. They
are coming out with the statement that is released this evening that
says, the cancer is an Australian point system on immigration where
you allocate points depending on skills.
What is interesting that these people, even if we exit, they do not
have any mandate to lead the country. We do not know who is in
charge. They cannot criticise them for not coming up with formal
proposals in criticise them for coming up with them. You can imagine
the anger of the Leave campaign. They had been bashed over the head.
Tell us what Britain after the exit will look like. They are seeing
things that are not in your power. We were talking about taking VAT of
energy bills and will talk about immigration tomorrow. We do not know
that is the case. It is legitimate to say this could happen. The other
interesting thing about this is that it is Boris Johnson as the leave
campaign on an anti-immigration platform. He made a huge play out of
being pro-immigration. He was talking about the only openly
pro-immigration politician in Britain. If there was less
immigration in the economy would stagnate, he said. Irrespective of
what we think here in London, if you go out into the country, migration
plays very strongly. They have had a good week with migration. Look at
the polls at the top of the times tonight. Three new poll is out
today. Two from ICM and the Guardian. The exit campaign is four
points ahead. And the YouGov poll for the times that is neck and neck.
The ICM poll is a telephone pole. Telephone surveys traditionally have
Remain ahead. They will talk about remaining FTR on the phone. This is
turning it on the head. The markets and the bookmakers moved because of
these polls. It does feel like we had any will be we cannot predict
what will happen. Some traction for Leave? The bookmakers say that
overwhelmingly Remain as the favourite and that is where I will
put my money. Every referendum we have, we see the polls move towards
the status quo and the last few weeks of the campaign and I will be
amazed if that did not happen. A lot of talk in the referendum debate
about the single market. And also the transatlantic trade agreement
which is being negotiated currently. This is something we have been
talking about any Financial Times. It is these type of thing that
people outside of the cosmopolitan circles have started asking me
about. Happy? -- have they? It is supposed to be a free trade deal
between the EU and US. It will mean that for instance, if the British
company wants to invest in the American health service it can do so
freely. And vice versa. An American company if they want to run a course
before, they can do so. At the moment it is restricted. If you have
got private ownership, particularly in a different country, we will sort
out disputes that occurs? What if it is a court not under British control
and British voters do not have a say over it. Politicians have been
putting exemptions in it. The French have a classic. Meat, cheese and
wine. It is interesting. It seemed like to be a technological fun but
Donald Trump is campaigning about it and Helen Clinton is talking about
it. Junior doctors. We have all been sleepwalking and suddenly these
vested interest groups... There are lots of people saying that they will
has been pulled over our eyes by the elite and the stitching up the deal
and we are not being included. It is less scary than people are saying.
It is feeding into that anti-elite style of politics. Let us move
forward towards the Times. Your main story tonight, it is about the
terror threat. We have one eye on the European Championships. This is
from the US State Department. They have put out a warning. What is
unusual that it is very broad brush. You could have a terror attack in
aged and Tunisia and countries will warn citizens about travelling. What
is real is to have a Europe-wide alert. -- Egypt. The Seb Davies a
risk for US citizens travelling to public areas across Europe. -- the
Xavier Denis. If you are a US tourist thinking about going to
London or Scotland, you make think twice. It is legitimate, we have
seen some horrific attacks in France and in Brussels. This will have an
impact that goes beyond American citizens. Running out of time. This
story at the front of the Daily Telegraph. It is difficult to get an
appointment at the doctors. It might get harder if the BMA is warning GPs
to only see a certain number per day. The BMA are saying that GPs are
exhausted. If you see a GP in the afternoon you will get worse
treatment than in the morning. They want a limit of seven appointments
per day. That might be good advice. I wonder if it is a political move.
In the last few days we had the story about the BMAs messages being
linked hash leaked. The this good with the government is about paint
rather than working conditions. -- page. Are you a stickler for
punctuation? That is because we the Times. We have standards to uphold
and expectations from readers us. I think it is great that people can
play with punctuation. What I like about this story, it has got
punctuation all the way through it. It also has the Court of the night
from professional David Crystal. People simply do not put periods in
unless they want to make a point. I have never seen anything like that
in the history of periods. They are out of time. Thank you. We will be
back tomorrow night. Same time. You can see a detailed example on the
