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

:00:16.:00:18.

With me are Fay Schlesinger, who's Head of News at The Times

:00:19.:00:23.

and Kiran Stacey, who's Energy Correspondent at the FT.

:00:24.:00:26.

Tomorrow's front pages, starting with...

:00:27.:00:30.

The Financial Times reports that the clothing retailer,

:00:31.:00:38.

-- the US and UK are battling to keep the biggest trade on track.

:00:39.:00:43.

Under the headline "killed in the house of horrors" ,

:00:44.:00:45.

the Metro, leads on the news that a woman and her civil

:00:46.:00:48.

partner have been convicted of murdering her two-year-old son.

:00:49.:00:50.

The Daily Telegraph reports that the Vote Leave leaders have

:00:51.:00:53.

pledged an Australian style points-based immigration system

:00:54.:00:54.

The Guardian claims British involvement in controversial

:00:55.:00:59.

rendition operations during the "war on terror" provoked an unprecedented

:01:00.:01:01.

row between intelligence agencies , MI5 and and MI6.

:01:02.:01:05.

The Times reports that the US state department has warned American

:01:06.:01:08.

tourists about the risk of terrorist attacks in Europe this summer.

:01:09.:01:13.

The Daily Express claims illegal migrants are paying smuggling gangs

:01:14.:01:15.

The Daily Mail also leads the EU referendum and higher rates the

:01:16.:01:27.

Leave campaign strategy to reduce immigration.

:01:28.:01:33.

Let us start with this dread. The Liam Fee. Pictures and all the front

:01:34.:01:42.

pages. -- this dread. We of Liam Fee. How many inquest that we had in

:01:43.:01:55.

two cases like this? It is too many. This too good old boy who in 2013

:01:56.:02:01.

died at the hands of his mother and civil partner in Fife in Scotland.

:02:02.:02:08.

The element of the score with that Blixed Colin -- of the story that

:02:09.:02:16.

makes it galling, the system has failed this child. Nursery workers

:02:17.:02:21.

have been working with Liam Fee and had alerted the authorities.

:02:22.:02:25.

Something was wrong. He did not look to be well looked after. The social

:02:26.:02:30.

worker visits the house and is giving a plausible explanation. Goes

:02:31.:02:33.

away and goes on sick leave and the case is not passed on to anybody

:02:34.:02:41.

else. He fell through the hole. There was marks on his face and they

:02:42.:02:48.

covered it with chocolate. It is galling. It is an individual case.

:02:49.:02:53.

We are seeing a social care system for children that is really

:02:54.:02:59.

struggling under the weight... We reported in the Times about the

:03:00.:03:04.

scale of children being reported to social services. One in five

:03:05.:03:08.

preschool children from 2009 until last year had been reported to

:03:09.:03:13.

social services. One in five. How does the system cope with checking

:03:14.:03:20.

out everyone of those reports. If you were trying to recruit for the

:03:21.:03:25.

social services, it cannot be easy? Inevitably social services will be

:03:26.:03:28.

criticised because the child slipped through the system. There will be in

:03:29.:03:35.

negative feedback loop where people see the stories and think that the

:03:36.:03:38.

last thing they want to do is to get involved in a system like that. A

:03:39.:03:42.

story like this happens and the people who get blamed, there are the

:03:43.:03:46.

parents, but as much people are looking for somebody to blame that

:03:47.:03:50.

they can do something about. The social services get it. It must be a

:03:51.:03:55.

rewarding profession and they do lots of good work. This is the

:03:56.:03:59.

nightmare scenario for anybody who works in the service. There is

:04:00.:04:07.

always going to be cases like this. There is the risk we think that

:04:08.:04:10.

something is this the men -- systemically wrong. It has been a

:04:11.:04:18.

while since we have had this. We had a spate a view years ago when he was

:04:19.:04:23.

a number of cases like this. On the plus side, the story gets lots of

:04:24.:04:29.

publicity and makes the government aware. It is a sector that needs

:04:30.:04:34.

money. It is not a sexy sector but it is desperate for money. Let us

:04:35.:04:40.

focus on the Daily Telegraph. The EU referendum. Three weeks and two days

:04:41.:04:45.

to go. One of the criticisms about the Leave campaign is that they do

:04:46.:04:50.

not have formal policies in Britain decides to leave. This is the first

:04:51.:04:55.

policy on the front page today of a manifesto commitment. It is a

:04:56.:05:00.

manifesto commitment. Boris Johnson, Michael Gove, and pretty Patel. They

:05:01.:05:07.

are coming out with the statement that is released this evening that

:05:08.:05:15.

says, the cancer is an Australian point system on immigration where

:05:16.:05:17.

you allocate points depending on skills.

:05:18.:05:27.

What is interesting that these people, even if we exit, they do not

:05:28.:05:34.

have any mandate to lead the country. We do not know who is in

:05:35.:05:41.

charge. They cannot criticise them for not coming up with formal

:05:42.:05:44.

proposals in criticise them for coming up with them. You can imagine

:05:45.:05:52.

the anger of the Leave campaign. They had been bashed over the head.

:05:53.:05:57.

Tell us what Britain after the exit will look like. They are seeing

:05:58.:06:03.

things that are not in your power. We were talking about taking VAT of

:06:04.:06:06.

energy bills and will talk about immigration tomorrow. We do not know

:06:07.:06:10.

that is the case. It is legitimate to say this could happen. The other

:06:11.:06:17.

interesting thing about this is that it is Boris Johnson as the leave

:06:18.:06:20.

campaign on an anti-immigration platform. He made a huge play out of

:06:21.:06:27.

being pro-immigration. He was talking about the only openly

:06:28.:06:29.

pro-immigration politician in Britain. If there was less

:06:30.:06:35.

immigration in the economy would stagnate, he said. Irrespective of

:06:36.:06:42.

what we think here in London, if you go out into the country, migration

:06:43.:06:47.

plays very strongly. They have had a good week with migration. Look at

:06:48.:06:50.

the polls at the top of the times tonight. Three new poll is out

:06:51.:06:57.

today. Two from ICM and the Guardian. The exit campaign is four

:06:58.:07:04.

points ahead. And the YouGov poll for the times that is neck and neck.

:07:05.:07:15.

The ICM poll is a telephone pole. Telephone surveys traditionally have

:07:16.:07:20.

Remain ahead. They will talk about remaining FTR on the phone. This is

:07:21.:07:29.

turning it on the head. The markets and the bookmakers moved because of

:07:30.:07:36.

these polls. It does feel like we had any will be we cannot predict

:07:37.:07:41.

what will happen. Some traction for Leave? The bookmakers say that

:07:42.:07:46.

overwhelmingly Remain as the favourite and that is where I will

:07:47.:07:49.

put my money. Every referendum we have, we see the polls move towards

:07:50.:07:54.

the status quo and the last few weeks of the campaign and I will be

:07:55.:08:01.

amazed if that did not happen. A lot of talk in the referendum debate

:08:02.:08:06.

about the single market. And also the transatlantic trade agreement

:08:07.:08:11.

which is being negotiated currently. This is something we have been

:08:12.:08:14.

talking about any Financial Times. It is these type of thing that

:08:15.:08:19.

people outside of the cosmopolitan circles have started asking me

:08:20.:08:31.

about. Happy? -- have they? It is supposed to be a free trade deal

:08:32.:08:36.

between the EU and US. It will mean that for instance, if the British

:08:37.:08:40.

company wants to invest in the American health service it can do so

:08:41.:08:44.

freely. And vice versa. An American company if they want to run a course

:08:45.:08:50.

before, they can do so. At the moment it is restricted. If you have

:08:51.:08:54.

got private ownership, particularly in a different country, we will sort

:08:55.:08:59.

out disputes that occurs? What if it is a court not under British control

:09:00.:09:04.

and British voters do not have a say over it. Politicians have been

:09:05.:09:07.

putting exemptions in it. The French have a classic. Meat, cheese and

:09:08.:09:19.

wine. It is interesting. It seemed like to be a technological fun but

:09:20.:09:25.

Donald Trump is campaigning about it and Helen Clinton is talking about

:09:26.:09:35.

it. Junior doctors. We have all been sleepwalking and suddenly these

:09:36.:09:40.

vested interest groups... There are lots of people saying that they will

:09:41.:09:43.

has been pulled over our eyes by the elite and the stitching up the deal

:09:44.:09:49.

and we are not being included. It is less scary than people are saying.

:09:50.:09:52.

It is feeding into that anti-elite style of politics. Let us move

:09:53.:10:00.

forward towards the Times. Your main story tonight, it is about the

:10:01.:10:04.

terror threat. We have one eye on the European Championships. This is

:10:05.:10:10.

from the US State Department. They have put out a warning. What is

:10:11.:10:16.

unusual that it is very broad brush. You could have a terror attack in

:10:17.:10:20.

aged and Tunisia and countries will warn citizens about travelling. What

:10:21.:10:26.

is real is to have a Europe-wide alert. -- Egypt. The Seb Davies a

:10:27.:10:32.

risk for US citizens travelling to public areas across Europe. -- the

:10:33.:10:41.

Xavier Denis. If you are a US tourist thinking about going to

:10:42.:10:43.

London or Scotland, you make think twice. It is legitimate, we have

:10:44.:10:53.

seen some horrific attacks in France and in Brussels. This will have an

:10:54.:10:56.

impact that goes beyond American citizens. Running out of time. This

:10:57.:11:04.

story at the front of the Daily Telegraph. It is difficult to get an

:11:05.:11:11.

appointment at the doctors. It might get harder if the BMA is warning GPs

:11:12.:11:15.

to only see a certain number per day. The BMA are saying that GPs are

:11:16.:11:22.

exhausted. If you see a GP in the afternoon you will get worse

:11:23.:11:26.

treatment than in the morning. They want a limit of seven appointments

:11:27.:11:30.

per day. That might be good advice. I wonder if it is a political move.

:11:31.:11:34.

In the last few days we had the story about the BMAs messages being

:11:35.:11:41.

linked hash leaked. The this good with the government is about paint

:11:42.:11:45.

rather than working conditions. -- page. Are you a stickler for

:11:46.:11:57.

punctuation? That is because we the Times. We have standards to uphold

:11:58.:12:04.

and expectations from readers us. I think it is great that people can

:12:05.:12:16.

play with punctuation. What I like about this story, it has got

:12:17.:12:24.

punctuation all the way through it. It also has the Court of the night

:12:25.:12:28.

from professional David Crystal. People simply do not put periods in

:12:29.:12:34.

unless they want to make a point. I have never seen anything like that

:12:35.:12:41.

in the history of periods. They are out of time. Thank you. We will be

:12:42.:12:54.

back tomorrow night. Same time. You can see a detailed example on the

:12:55.:12:56.

BBC website.
