Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers
Twitter was a flame after the last paper review. -- aflame.
With me are Benedicte Paviot, who's the UK Correspondent for France 24
and the Home Affairs Editor for the Evening Standard, Martin Bentham.
Since we last saw Benedicte, she has been awarded the National Order of
Merit? I may ask the queen for a knighthood soon. That's lovely.

Pig Human embryos have been created in a dramatic bid to solve
Starting with The Guardian, unions warned of Brexit threat. Urging
union members to back the remaining campaign. These are some of the very
big unions, saying we should stay in because it could be a reflux of hard
wing writes? It is aiming 6 million members to back the Remain campaign
-- Remain. The biggest trade unions in the UK are the ones who are
really saying that if there is a Brexit, the Conservative Party would
be left to basically undo a lot of the rights such as maternity and
paternity, equal treatment for part-time and agency workers, and
the right to paid leave. That has underpinned it. They said underpins
working rights for British people. This letter is being sent to 6
million members on Monday. They do point out that it is important to
have various reforms of the EU. It is not perfect by any means. This
could arguably be the return of the powers, an increase in sovereignty
that Britain would enjoy if you were in favour of leaving the EU? That
would be down to Westminster to decide on? And personally I think
that is absolutely right. That is the argument that I think we should
dot. Dot the idea that all these things would be scrapped is probably
wrong anyway. Even if we did have a Brexit. But I think it shows a lack
of faith in the unions, and in our own parliaments and their ability to
win the votes of the British people. The question isn't whether the EU
has done a good or bad things, because some of the things it has
done very good things. The question is, who should decide? If you can't
win through our own voters and persuading them to do something, I
don't think that's right. I don't think we should be relying on people
from the outside. This letter talks about the 1999 trade unions working
rights and so on. It gives the game away, because this is exactly
what... This is why the change occurred in the party to being pro-
EU. There work is being brought in which were contrary to what they had
been really able to achieve in the British parliamentary system. We
vote for MEPs, don't we? It is a democratic institution in that we
have as much right to vote in the European elections as any other
member state? Ultimately, the ministers have the broader
influence. The scrutiny is not there. Personally I think that these
arguments are ones to be won. We have a good record with the national
minimum wage, antidiscrimination laws in terms of race and sexual
discrimination, brought in by our own parliaments before we were in
the EU. It's not as if we don't have our own volition towards social
progress. An attack on Boris, this shows how this is just not being
fought along party lines at all and? We have seen a chasm emerged in the
Conservative Party? I think this is a fundamental issue about the future
of the country and it shouldn't be dictated by the new party political
considerations of party thinking we must all stick together and not have
an open airing of our different views on such fundamental issues. It
is quite a healthy thing to admit particularly for conservatives, to
haul themselves together after the referendum. For the good of the
country, I think it is right that people are out there saying what
they think freely and openly. It is leading to a rather heated debate.
What is remarkable is to see Sir John Major with that kind of full
frontal attack. This is a man who was described, when he was Prime
Minister, as being boring. He was clearly anything but yesterday. He
was very outspoken, and it was a full frontal attack on Michael Gove,
Boris Johnson and Iain Duncan Smith. On the 24th of June and afterwards
there will still be a Conservative government, and goodness knows what
position this puts the government in. There has been incredible
damage, and I think the message, whether it's pro- leave or not, it
is a momentous decision for this country. I think John Major demeaned
himself slightly, it has turned into a personal attack on Boris Johnson.
It's a much bigger issue than the individual people concerned. -- he
has reverted to personal attacks. UK forces on the front line in theory,
they had been in training camps previously? Yes, so we've been told.
In London, we have been told that our rebels are on the front line.
Helping the new Syrian army in a south-eastern village. This is in
Syria, what is crucial is that this village sits near the Iraqi-Di --
Iraqi -Jordanian borders. It is also interesting that British Special
Forces only last week were interviewing in Libya, so clearly
British Special Forces don't need approval from the House of Commons.
It's not like having regular troops on the ground? Know, often our
troops operate in countries we don't know about in very covert ways. I
think, in this case, there are talks about helping in a particular case
with logistics like building defences to make longer safe and so
on, to help rebels rappel Islamic State attacks. I think that is quite
a good seeing. Staying with the Times, Novak Djokovic won be French
Open today. Roland Garros consoling Andy Murray, very touching? It is.
Yes, Novak Djokovic is Andy Murray's old nemesis. Andy Murray
did very well to get into the final and it was fantastic to see Novak
Djokovic, he has always said that he has extra angels sitting on his
shoulders. The clouds parted, the Sun came out, it wasn't lost on
anybody. -- sun. He spoke in French, he made a few tiny mistakes, it
didn't matter. He did remarkably well, even apart from winning. He
said he thinks it is the epitome of his career. Dignity in a final
ported, a picture of Muhammad Ali taken just a couple of months ago?
Obviously diminished by the appalling on is that he suffered?
Yes, and he had painted at so look a little bit older than he did when he
was in his physical prime. You can still see the power and you can
still see the presents that he had. Finally, going over to the
Telegraph, these are the cover stories that caused a bit of a stir
last hour. Leftover bottle of red, put it in the fridge with the
white? Advice from a wine expert? Yes, making sure you don't waste it
and drink it very quickly. That's if you have any left. Yes, this is a
great issue. The question is, do you actually have any left to put in the
fridge? And if so, are you going to keep it for so long that you need to
put it into the fridge? Just before Christmas, I saw that you can get
corks that take the extra air out of the bottle. Just sip it, enjoy
life. It's short. Yes, the vacuum is don't get much use in my house. The
last story of the night, couples are having less sex because of
television box sets? I think this is particularly in the United Kingdom.
It seems to be a report... It's on the front of the daily Telegraph. I
wonder if this happens in France and Italy? Do the French have box sets.
Of course we do! But there is too much TV watching. I was watching a
BBC programme years ago, it was greatly admired and I loved it, but
it's actually encourage people to switch the television off and do
other things. OK. Doesn't it speak of the polity... The poor quality of
people's sex lines but be quality of television at the moment? I suppose
it does, but the statistician from Cambridge University here, he says
it is very worrying that people are only making love five times a
month, they used to be making love five times a month but now it is
three times a month. One Twitter user says, three times a month?
Lucky devils! Thank you very much, lovely to see you both. Hope to see
you again soon. That's it from the papers, coming up next is the Film
