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


BBC website.
