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


With me are Laura Hughes political correspondent for The Telegraph


and Joe Watts political correspondent for


Tomorrow's front pages, starting with:


The i leads on the news that a coroner has reopened the inquests


into the deaths of 21 people in the Birmingham


pub bombings in 1974, because of significant


The Metro carries that story but focuses the sister of a teenage


victim who is calling on the killers to give themselves up.


The Daily Telegraph reports on claims made


by the Justice Secretary and Leave EU Campaigner, Michael Gove that


he's been forced allow terror suspects into Britain


because EU rules left him powerless to intervene.


The Financial Times reports the London Stock Exchange


and Deustsche Boerse are planning to axe more than 1,200 jobs


in London and Frankfurt as part of their proposed merger.


The Guardian says Jeremy Corbyn is being urged to speak up for EU


migration ahead of the EU referendum. It also pictures Andy


Murray who is through to the semifinals of the French Open. The


Times reports men in their 50s can cut their risk of prostrate cancer


by losing a few inches around the waist. The Daily Mail carries a


story about a boat they claim was used by the alleged people smugglers


the other day. The express has a report about Albanian migrants in


France. We will look into that to the cause of the evening.


Let's start with the Telegraph. Laura, this is your paper and part


two of the immigration story that has been working well for the


leader-macro campaign? Also, the ECJ puts up a risk of terror and they


have prevented us from bringing them measures that will protect British


people. He said if we voted to leave the EU in June, the next Labour


government will be able to introduce new measures that would curb the


influence of the European Court of Justice. This is the second time


Michael Gove and Boris Johnson have come out and put forward another


manifesto saying this is what we would do if we came out of the EU.


Not what David Cameron and the government I do, it is interesting.


We were talking about the manifesto commitments and they dammed if they


do and dammed if don't. I don't think there is any doubts they have


stepped forward quite a bit from just the mere suspension of


collective responsibility here. They have formed a sort of double act and


they have set out if not an alternative government policy, be


looking like an alternative government within the government.


They are playing a dangerous game. Michael Gove has said in relation to


this measure, he was prevented from stopping people from coming into the


country, which could be an inflammatory claim. He hasn't given


any detail about who he stopped, when it happened. He will come under


pressure and the question is, will he lamely say, these are things that


have happened a government so I cannot talk about the detail. Will


people and ace out of his sleeve and sock it to the Remain campaign. The


Remain camp have a lot of Labour voters who are undecided. The


Guardian are saying Jeremy Corbyn is coming under pressure to speak out


about immigration but it doesn't play well on the doorstep? It is


worrying Labour MPs who fear traditional Labour voters will go to


Ukip. A number of polls than yesterday show half of Labour voters


were not sure where the Labour leadership stood on this issue of


wrecks it or staying in. The head of one of the biggest unions, and


National back-up Jeremy Corbyn and supported him as leader saying


you're not doing enough and you are alienating our traditional voters,


what are you going to do? We saw on the front page of the Telegraph, a


story of the three Max Rohn campaigners say we're not safe, look


at immigration, we cannot control it. You don't have that counter


argument coming from Labour. Remain campaign needs Labour voters. Tom


Watson has been criticised there today saying they don't want to


share a platform with Remain campaigners from the Tory party.


Yes, he said he cannot share a platform with David Cameron. For the


frustration amongst MPs are many Labour members is, it isn't a new


problem. Immigration was a soft underbelly for them at the last


election and it has been a problem identified in several reports. In


Margaret Becket's reports and John Cruddas reports. It is getting


worse. The idea Jeremy Corbyn is going to do a big about turn and


take a tough line on immigration isn't there and people are worried


about it. What the Home Secretary can do without is pictures like this


on the fronted express, pictures of migrants lining up the cliffs and


twinning that with the story of those Albanians who got across the


other day? That is right, they are difficult stories and the only get


more difficult when a paper gives it this kind of treatment. It is a very


emotive heading. What about the headline, the invaders? The language


is inflammatory. Calling migrants sneaky and brazen. Boasting about


their exploits and how easy it is to get into the UK. This is a story


that in a certain group of the electorate will drum up the


bitterness there is about the immigration situation. What are the


Labour Party saying about things like this? I couldn't tell you of


the top of my head. You have been trying to write this story? I have,


this narrative is doing well and is damaging the remained campaign. This


issue on this piece of paper is worrying Conservatives, worrying the


government. Monday, new measures were introduced to toughen borders.


We don't know the details but new vessels will be going into the


waters to patrol our borders. The Telegraph have a story about dozens


of a small, tiny ports and harbours across the country where migrants


are being smuggled by people traffickers. It is something we


should be focusing on tackling these traffickers. Some people will be


repulsed by this. The fact you are repulsed by this kind of coverage


doesn't mean you cannot engage with the issue on another level. That is


the problem for Labour. They will shout and stamp their feet about


this coverage, but the leadership won't engage with it on another


level, a lot of their working-class voters want the issue dealt with on.


Another big story was the reopening of the inquest into the Birmingham


pub bombings. An interesting conversation on the headline which


is called gutless. There isn't an answer about the people who are


involved and they cannot be condemned strongly enough. But he is


the only one sticking his head above the parapet to talk about it. He


wasn't condemning them at all, from her point of view. I heard that


interview and he was suggesting they were legitimate soldiers fighting a


legitimate war. It is his point of view and a lot of people will find


that hard to swallow. The Julie Hamilton, given her 18-year-old


sister died in it, you can feel the visceral anger coming from her. What


has happened today with the reopening of the inquest, it is a


real victory for them. It is a tragic do send in British history I


think a lot of people, the British public want to know what happened.


We spoke to one of the family members to night who said it would


be good if some of the senior figures within the IRA that time


would come forward in the spirit of truth and in and say about what they


knew. We saw that with Hillsborough, the power of having these inquests


reopened. Let's look at what people knew. For the families, they didn't


have any answers. We have the Birmingham six, but nothing came


from that. Disaster after disaster. All these tip-offs apparently were


given but they weren't acted upon. If a member of your family died in


that, you would want to know whether failings were to ensure it didn't


happen again. The difference with Hillsborough is, well Hillsborough


is something that can be dealt with with current politicians in a


neutral way, this kind of thing could have an effect on politics in


Northern Ireland today. That is why it might be more difficult to deal


with this now. The Times, inches lost from waste but prostrate cancer


risk. One of the real issues is men in their 50s and 60s don't talk


about their health. Here is some evidence that there are ways to stop


one of the biggest killers? Simple ways as well. 11,000 people die a


year of prostrate cancer. People with a 37 inch waist, which isn't


that huge, most at risk. But you can cut the risk by cutting four inches


off your waistline and it dramatically decreases the risk. We


knew that high-fat and high cholesterol diet were damaging but


this is an easy way of reducing your risk. I am a Burnley fan and


chairman had prostrate cancer. He opened up the club for an open day


for people to come and get tested. 400 men came forward and 10% were


referred to their doctor. Maybe that is the way to do it, through sports


grounds. The average of two years, you live with it two years without


realising. Women are much better than this than men? With the Breast


Cancer Campaign it is the pink ribbon, it is very visual and open


and you are aware of it as a young woman growing up, more than if you


are a man. Men aren't as open. My wife would agree, probably. Let's


talk about Donald Trump, who interestingly, this is in the


Financial Times, that is the lighthouse at Turnberry. The course


has had a revamp. The timing of his next visit is interesting? It


couldn't be worse for us covering it. But David Cameron, Donald Trump


has said he thinks it is in Britain's interests to leave.


Although this morning a reporter was asking him what he thought about


Brexit and he did know what it meant. He then got it and went, yes


they should leave. It is MS for David Cameron. Wakes up the next


morning, if he has lost, he has Donald Trump turning up. The day


after! A lot of people are sniffy about him but he is one of the two


candidates. They might need him. If they need a deal with America, a


trade deal with the United States, they might need to meet him. Yes,


they might have to eat, drink and break bread with him. He is forcing


himself upon the world and nobody can stop him at the moment. The


interesting thing is, he has some strident views on foreign policy.


The North Korean leader thinks he is a good thing! They said he was


better than the thickheaded Hillary Clinton. So he has North Korea and


Russia in his corner, but not David Cameron. Just turning back to the


Times to finish. Emily Blunt on the front. Can you say


Supercaliflagilistic question-macro I'm not a big fan of sequels. We


don't know who will play Dick Van Dyke. It will be great. It will


remake it for a new generation in the way Star Wars movies have


gripped the new bunch of kids. My daughter loves the original Mary


Poppins. She can hardly talk, but she loves the songs. My children


love it. Do you know how many Oscars it won? It 15 Oscars. No pressure,


Emily. She is from Wandsworth in London, I understand. Maybe she can


put the London accent on if she needs to.
