Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers

:00:15.:00:17.

Twitter was a flame after the last paper review. -- aflame.

:00:18.:00:29.

With me are Benedicte Paviot, who's the UK Correspondent for France 24

:00:30.:00:33.

and the Home Affairs Editor for the Evening Standard, Martin Bentham.

:00:34.:00:35.

Since we last saw Benedicte, she has been awarded the National Order of

:00:36.:00:52.

Merit? I may ask the queen for a knighthood soon. That's lovely.

:00:53.:00:55.

The Telegraph leads on news that David Cameron will

:00:56.:00:58.

tomorrow unite with the Labour party to speak about what he perceives

:00:59.:01:01.

The Financial Times front page shows a picture of some

:01:02.:01:06.

of the tributes that have been paid to the legendry boxer Muhammad Ali

:01:07.:01:09.

and has a piece about how High Street banks are now gearing up

:01:10.:01:12.

Tomorrow's Metro leads on a story we have been covering today,

:01:13.:01:17.

Sir John Major entering into the EU referendum debate to call the leave

:01:18.:01:21.

The Guardian meanwhile says that the leaders of Britain's biggest

:01:22.:01:28.

trade unions have issued a plea to their six million members to vote to

:01:29.:01:32.

The paper also shows a picture of Andy Murray being consoled

:01:33.:01:41.

after his latest grand slam final loss to Novak Djokovic.

:01:42.:01:43.

The Times also shows Murray being consoled and leads with news that

:01:44.:01:46.

British Special Forces are on the front line in Syria.

:01:47.:01:49.

The Mirror leads with claims that Muhammad Ali held out

:01:50.:01:51.

against Parkinson's three times as long as doctors predicted.

:01:52.:01:53.

The Sun also leads with the great boxer and has a full page shot

:01:54.:01:57.

showing Ali's final official picture with the text "Ali at the end".

:01:58.:02:00.

The Daily Mail shows the same shot and splashes on a report that

:02:01.:02:03.

Pig Human embryos have been created in a dramatic bid to solve

:02:04.:02:06.

Starting with The Guardian, unions warned of Brexit threat. Urging

:02:07.:02:19.

union members to back the remaining campaign. These are some of the very

:02:20.:02:29.

big unions, saying we should stay in because it could be a reflux of hard

:02:30.:02:44.

wing writes? It is aiming 6 million members to back the Remain campaign

:02:45.:02:50.

-- Remain. The biggest trade unions in the UK are the ones who are

:02:51.:02:56.

really saying that if there is a Brexit, the Conservative Party would

:02:57.:03:01.

be left to basically undo a lot of the rights such as maternity and

:03:02.:03:08.

paternity, equal treatment for part-time and agency workers, and

:03:09.:03:11.

the right to paid leave. That has underpinned it. They said underpins

:03:12.:03:19.

working rights for British people. This letter is being sent to 6

:03:20.:03:24.

million members on Monday. They do point out that it is important to

:03:25.:03:29.

have various reforms of the EU. It is not perfect by any means. This

:03:30.:03:36.

could arguably be the return of the powers, an increase in sovereignty

:03:37.:03:41.

that Britain would enjoy if you were in favour of leaving the EU? That

:03:42.:03:45.

would be down to Westminster to decide on? And personally I think

:03:46.:03:51.

that is absolutely right. That is the argument that I think we should

:03:52.:03:55.

dot. Dot the idea that all these things would be scrapped is probably

:03:56.:04:00.

wrong anyway. Even if we did have a Brexit. But I think it shows a lack

:04:01.:04:05.

of faith in the unions, and in our own parliaments and their ability to

:04:06.:04:09.

win the votes of the British people. The question isn't whether the EU

:04:10.:04:14.

has done a good or bad things, because some of the things it has

:04:15.:04:19.

done very good things. The question is, who should decide? If you can't

:04:20.:04:26.

win through our own voters and persuading them to do something, I

:04:27.:04:32.

don't think that's right. I don't think we should be relying on people

:04:33.:04:37.

from the outside. This letter talks about the 1999 trade unions working

:04:38.:04:43.

rights and so on. It gives the game away, because this is exactly

:04:44.:04:51.

what... This is why the change occurred in the party to being pro-

:04:52.:04:58.

EU. There work is being brought in which were contrary to what they had

:04:59.:05:03.

been really able to achieve in the British parliamentary system. We

:05:04.:05:12.

vote for MEPs, don't we? It is a democratic institution in that we

:05:13.:05:17.

have as much right to vote in the European elections as any other

:05:18.:05:21.

member state? Ultimately, the ministers have the broader

:05:22.:05:29.

influence. The scrutiny is not there. Personally I think that these

:05:30.:05:37.

arguments are ones to be won. We have a good record with the national

:05:38.:05:39.

minimum wage, antidiscrimination laws in terms of race and sexual

:05:40.:05:46.

discrimination, brought in by our own parliaments before we were in

:05:47.:05:50.

the EU. It's not as if we don't have our own volition towards social

:05:51.:06:00.

progress. An attack on Boris, this shows how this is just not being

:06:01.:06:07.

fought along party lines at all and? We have seen a chasm emerged in the

:06:08.:06:13.

Conservative Party? I think this is a fundamental issue about the future

:06:14.:06:18.

of the country and it shouldn't be dictated by the new party political

:06:19.:06:21.

considerations of party thinking we must all stick together and not have

:06:22.:06:27.

an open airing of our different views on such fundamental issues. It

:06:28.:06:31.

is quite a healthy thing to admit particularly for conservatives, to

:06:32.:06:35.

haul themselves together after the referendum. For the good of the

:06:36.:06:39.

country, I think it is right that people are out there saying what

:06:40.:06:44.

they think freely and openly. It is leading to a rather heated debate.

:06:45.:06:51.

What is remarkable is to see Sir John Major with that kind of full

:06:52.:06:56.

frontal attack. This is a man who was described, when he was Prime

:06:57.:07:04.

Minister, as being boring. He was clearly anything but yesterday. He

:07:05.:07:08.

was very outspoken, and it was a full frontal attack on Michael Gove,

:07:09.:07:13.

Boris Johnson and Iain Duncan Smith. On the 24th of June and afterwards

:07:14.:07:16.

there will still be a Conservative government, and goodness knows what

:07:17.:07:24.

position this puts the government in. There has been incredible

:07:25.:07:29.

damage, and I think the message, whether it's pro- leave or not, it

:07:30.:07:36.

is a momentous decision for this country. I think John Major demeaned

:07:37.:07:43.

himself slightly, it has turned into a personal attack on Boris Johnson.

:07:44.:07:48.

It's a much bigger issue than the individual people concerned. -- he

:07:49.:08:00.

has reverted to personal attacks. UK forces on the front line in theory,

:08:01.:08:06.

they had been in training camps previously? Yes, so we've been told.

:08:07.:08:14.

In London, we have been told that our rebels are on the front line.

:08:15.:08:21.

Helping the new Syrian army in a south-eastern village. This is in

:08:22.:08:26.

Syria, what is crucial is that this village sits near the Iraqi-Di --

:08:27.:08:35.

Iraqi -Jordanian borders. It is also interesting that British Special

:08:36.:08:40.

Forces only last week were interviewing in Libya, so clearly

:08:41.:08:44.

British Special Forces don't need approval from the House of Commons.

:08:45.:08:49.

It's not like having regular troops on the ground? Know, often our

:08:50.:08:56.

troops operate in countries we don't know about in very covert ways. I

:08:57.:09:01.

think, in this case, there are talks about helping in a particular case

:09:02.:09:06.

with logistics like building defences to make longer safe and so

:09:07.:09:13.

on, to help rebels rappel Islamic State attacks. I think that is quite

:09:14.:09:20.

a good seeing. Staying with the Times, Novak Djokovic won be French

:09:21.:09:25.

Open today. Roland Garros consoling Andy Murray, very touching? It is.

:09:26.:09:35.

Yes, Novak Djokovic is Andy Murray's old nemesis. Andy Murray

:09:36.:09:40.

did very well to get into the final and it was fantastic to see Novak

:09:41.:09:47.

Djokovic, he has always said that he has extra angels sitting on his

:09:48.:09:51.

shoulders. The clouds parted, the Sun came out, it wasn't lost on

:09:52.:10:02.

anybody. -- sun. He spoke in French, he made a few tiny mistakes, it

:10:03.:10:07.

didn't matter. He did remarkably well, even apart from winning. He

:10:08.:10:11.

said he thinks it is the epitome of his career. Dignity in a final

:10:12.:10:18.

ported, a picture of Muhammad Ali taken just a couple of months ago?

:10:19.:10:21.

Obviously diminished by the appalling on is that he suffered?

:10:22.:10:32.

Yes, and he had painted at so look a little bit older than he did when he

:10:33.:10:36.

was in his physical prime. You can still see the power and you can

:10:37.:10:42.

still see the presents that he had. Finally, going over to the

:10:43.:10:46.

Telegraph, these are the cover stories that caused a bit of a stir

:10:47.:10:51.

last hour. Leftover bottle of red, put it in the fridge with the

:10:52.:11:00.

white? Advice from a wine expert? Yes, making sure you don't waste it

:11:01.:11:07.

and drink it very quickly. That's if you have any left. Yes, this is a

:11:08.:11:13.

great issue. The question is, do you actually have any left to put in the

:11:14.:11:18.

fridge? And if so, are you going to keep it for so long that you need to

:11:19.:11:25.

put it into the fridge? Just before Christmas, I saw that you can get

:11:26.:11:29.

corks that take the extra air out of the bottle. Just sip it, enjoy

:11:30.:11:43.

life. It's short. Yes, the vacuum is don't get much use in my house. The

:11:44.:11:49.

last story of the night, couples are having less sex because of

:11:50.:12:03.

television box sets? I think this is particularly in the United Kingdom.

:12:04.:12:10.

It seems to be a report... It's on the front of the daily Telegraph. I

:12:11.:12:15.

wonder if this happens in France and Italy? Do the French have box sets.

:12:16.:12:22.

Of course we do! But there is too much TV watching. I was watching a

:12:23.:12:27.

BBC programme years ago, it was greatly admired and I loved it, but

:12:28.:12:33.

it's actually encourage people to switch the television off and do

:12:34.:12:38.

other things. OK. Doesn't it speak of the polity... The poor quality of

:12:39.:12:44.

people's sex lines but be quality of television at the moment? I suppose

:12:45.:12:50.

it does, but the statistician from Cambridge University here, he says

:12:51.:12:56.

it is very worrying that people are only making love five times a

:12:57.:13:03.

month, they used to be making love five times a month but now it is

:13:04.:13:09.

three times a month. One Twitter user says, three times a month?

:13:10.:13:16.

Lucky devils! Thank you very much, lovely to see you both. Hope to see

:13:17.:13:26.

you again soon. That's it from the papers, coming up next is the Film

:13:27.:13:30.

Review.
