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

:00:15.:00:18.

With me are Lucy Fisher, Senior Political Correspondent

:00:19.:00:21.

at the Times, and John Prideaux, US Editor at the Economist.

:00:22.:00:25.

Let's start with the Metro, leading the investigation into the demise of

:00:26.:00:36.

BHS. Today a Government committee heard claims the retailer's owner

:00:37.:00:39.

Dominic Chappel threatened to kill one of the Company's executives.

:00:40.:00:45.

Financial Times also outlined BHS and proportionate Chappel's claims

:00:46.:00:48.

that the former owner prevented a buyout of the feeling retailer. The

:00:49.:00:53.

Guardian features hello Kontinen were making history as the first

:00:54.:00:58.

woman to win the presidential nomination for a major US political

:00:59.:01:04.

party. The express leads an EU referendum and activation from

:01:05.:01:05.

government campaigners that the Government is trying to rig the vote

:01:06.:01:11.

by extending the registration. The Telegraph also leads on the

:01:12.:01:14.

referendum. We will touch on hot a few of those

:01:15.:01:29.

stories. That start with the mental and BHS. Those proceedings in that

:01:30.:01:38.

committee room today, incredible. A threat to kill BHS Bosque is not

:01:39.:01:40.

amazing, this is one part of the amazing, this is one part of the

:01:41.:01:45.

mudslinging going on today. Chief Executive at Darren Clarke said

:01:46.:01:48.

Dominic Chappell rang him up and screamed at him and threatened to

:01:49.:01:52.

come down and kill him. Extraordinary claims. Yes, and

:01:53.:01:57.

lifting the lid to a degree on what goes on at this company. Absolutely

:01:58.:02:04.

bizarre. Yes, some of the language is amazing. And the personal nature

:02:05.:02:10.

of the vendettas. I enjoyed the FT did a follow-up, Colin Dominik to

:02:11.:02:14.

Pelo and ask him if he had a gun and if he had intended to kill the Chief

:02:15.:02:21.

Executive. His quote here is when asked about vaccinations he denied

:02:22.:02:24.

threatening his former colleague and pull differential times I don't have

:02:25.:02:28.

a gun, of course not. Be ridiculous. I thought that was wonderfully

:02:29.:02:32.

po-faced. Let's bring up the picture of FT. It has the three members of

:02:33.:02:40.

BHS, former members, on the front page. Mr Clarke, Mr Chappel and

:02:41.:02:47.

Michael Hitchcock. Former CEO. Lucy, we can have a laugh and frankly, it

:02:48.:02:54.

is probably unlikely Mr Chappel really intended to take the brunt of

:02:55.:02:58.

this man's head, but 11,000 jobs on the line and there is no question

:02:59.:03:04.

that it has been clock of Alcorcon clock up in the way that this

:03:05.:03:09.

company has been run. Absolutely, you have done it to Pelo admitting

:03:10.:03:12.

we knew nothing about retailing come as a former racing driver,

:03:13.:03:16.

three-time bankrupt, huge questions three-time bankrupt, huge questions

:03:17.:03:19.

take on a major concern like BHS and take on a major concern like BHS and

:03:20.:03:26.

you are right. Above and beyond this hyperbolic language, 11,000 people

:03:27.:03:30.

stand to lose their jobs. ?500 billion pension fund deficit and

:03:31.:03:35.

there are huge problems and great sadness for many people racing

:03:36.:03:42.

redundancy over this crisis. Yes, Sir Philip Green will appear next

:03:43.:03:45.

week. That'll be fun to that will be colourful. The other sessions have

:03:46.:03:51.

been interesting already. You are right, companies go bankrupt all the

:03:52.:03:56.

time and new Company start-up, people lose their jobs, which is

:03:57.:03:58.

terrible and companies create new jobs. Thing is as different here is

:03:59.:04:03.

That is a real to do -- a real taboo That is a real to do -- a real taboo

:04:04.:04:10.

and accommodation of that with the extraordinaire amounts of money the

:04:11.:04:14.

owners took out of the company before it went bankrupt is pretty

:04:15.:04:18.

toxic and shameful. Indeed. Quite a few people will be watching that

:04:19.:04:24.

committee next week. The Daily Express, outrage and a bid to read

:04:25.:04:28.

the EU vote. We know the computers crashed about this time last night.

:04:29.:04:31.

When people tried to register to vote in the EU referendum. Thousands

:04:32.:04:38.

of people were left unable to do so. As a result they've extended the

:04:39.:04:41.

deadline but some people smell a rat? This is the claim from Fort,

:04:42.:04:47.

that this is a conspiracy theory by some of the more stream fringes --

:04:48.:04:53.

from a vote Leave. The computer system was crashed on purpose to

:04:54.:04:57.

allow the Government to extend the deadline because they believe it is

:04:58.:04:58.

young people have left it late and young people have left it late and

:04:59.:05:03.

young people are more likely to vote Remain. It is a pointer very tough

:05:04.:05:07.

for government campaigners to make that if the Government is so

:05:08.:05:10.

concerned that people might have been prevented from signing up in

:05:11.:05:15.

the last hour before the deadline, it really should be taking the same

:05:16.:05:20.

rigorous approach towards sorting out the problem with Miss registered

:05:21.:05:25.

EU nationals there have been Polish residents to eating pictures of

:05:26.:05:28.

their polling cards that this shouldn't have. Some even have

:05:29.:05:32.

postal ballots. There is a disparity with which the Government is

:05:33.:05:36.

treating both sides. So we know there is a bit of a whiff of

:05:37.:05:42.

something going on? I think if they are going to sort out the voter

:05:43.:05:46.

registration problem is most evenhanded, they must make sure the

:05:47.:05:48.

right people who want to vote cancelled and The People who

:05:49.:05:53.

shouldn't must make sure they are taken off the electoral roll. It is

:05:54.:05:58.

highly likely that a lot of those people who registered last night

:05:59.:06:04.

will probably be young and those people who might decide it makes

:06:05.:06:08.

sense to Remain. That is right. That said, I think the idea it was a

:06:09.:06:12.

giant conspiracy is a microcosm of one of the arguments that the Vote

:06:13.:06:18.

Leave campaign has made. On some of the wilder fringes of that argument,

:06:19.:06:24.

the entire EU is a conspiracy by elites, Oliver forecasts that have

:06:25.:06:28.

come from organisations like the IMF are part of the same conspiracy.

:06:29.:06:31.

There is something paranoid in there but I agree with Lucy, it is

:06:32.:06:35.

important to be evenhanded. Going on the eye. Interesting front page.

:06:36.:06:40.

Brexit there will be blood, bold Yuvraj over Hitler -- Bodell right

:06:41.:06:47.

over Hitler, vote Brexit and helped Isis. Some of the scarier headlines

:06:48.:06:51.

we seen a domain message, less hysteria, more facts. Laudable

:06:52.:06:57.

comment, but clearly whatever information is out there, one side

:06:58.:07:02.

the other. It is as simple as that. the other. It is as simple as that.

:07:03.:07:07.

I don't know. Perhaps a controversial view on this, that

:07:08.:07:11.

there is a perforation of fax, organisations like the fact and UK

:07:12.:07:18.

and the changing EU. There is the BBC! Go to our website! People are

:07:19.:07:24.

still saying we cannot get facts. That is it. I think people need to

:07:25.:07:29.

take responsibility. The problem is there is not a clear answer, people

:07:30.:07:32.

have to engage their critical faculties and come to a conclusion.

:07:33.:07:36.

My sense is the public are crying out to be told the right answer.

:07:37.:07:40.

Exactly. People want to be led down a path. They don't want to make up

:07:41.:07:44.

their mind about this on their own. That is right. Thus would be an IQ

:07:45.:07:52.

for no elections ever. Lots of people wonder why this referendum is

:07:53.:07:56.

taking place in the first place? I would say there are lots of facts

:07:57.:08:00.

and you can look at them and make up your mind. That said, this is also a

:08:01.:08:05.

call on what you think will be best for the country in ten or 20 years.

:08:06.:08:11.

It comes down to a worldview, do you think the country is better off in a

:08:12.:08:13.

tight alliance with other neighbours or if you think it is better off on

:08:14.:08:19.

its own. That is a hard thing to boil down to facts. It is not

:08:20.:08:23.

conclusion you can get a clear answer on the absolutely. But both

:08:24.:08:30.

sides are exploiting that vacuum in certainty. Yes. Absolutely. The

:08:31.:08:35.

headlines we have here, Boris saying the EU's calls with the same as

:08:36.:08:41.

Hitler's, a premise are saying Isis would back Brexit, you should vote

:08:42.:08:45.

Remain. It is ridiculous. I saw George Osborne told Andrew Neil

:08:46.:08:51.

Brexit is like a snake. All of this vivid language has gone over the top

:08:52.:08:54.

and some of the arguments being made are outlandish. We will speak about

:08:55.:09:00.

The Telegraph in a moment. It's front-page lead concerns one of

:09:01.:09:05.

seven suspending his partnership in protest over the wake of the

:09:06.:09:09.

referendum is being held at handled but before that, another Tory MP,

:09:10.:09:13.

Sarah Walton, has revealed she has defected from Vote Leave and will

:09:14.:09:18.

vote to keep Britain in the EU. She says Vote Leave's claim ?350 million

:09:19.:09:23.

could be saved to spend on the NHS is not true and that has contributed

:09:24.:09:29.

to her decision to switch sides. For someone like me who has long

:09:30.:09:33.

in public life, I could not have in public life, I could not have

:09:34.:09:38.

stepped foot on a battle bus that has at the heart of its campaign a

:09:39.:09:43.

figure that I know to be untrue. And I think they know to be untrue as

:09:44.:09:47.

well. If you are in a position where you cannot hand out the Vote Leave

:09:48.:09:50.

leaflet, cannot be campaigning for that organisation. OK, Sarah

:09:51.:09:58.

Woollaston going from Brexit to Remain full to the front page of the

:09:59.:10:04.

delicate dial -- Telica at John Knox, Margaret Thatcher's former

:10:05.:10:09.

Defence Secretary during the Falklands War. He has decided to rip

:10:10.:10:14.

up his membership card for the Conservative Party. He says he is

:10:15.:10:18.

disgusted by the way that David Cameron and George Osborne had been

:10:19.:10:24.

running this campaign. Yes, Margaret Thatcher's Defence Secretary during

:10:25.:10:28.

never ship cards saying the debate never ship cards saying the debate

:10:29.:10:32.

has become so poisonous -- his membership card. And putting that

:10:33.:10:36.

with the premise Janet George Osborne is otherwise he only blaming

:10:37.:10:40.

that side? I think in a sense this is crystallising worldviews as you

:10:41.:10:47.

said. If you feel very strongly pro-Brexit or a bit that data is

:10:48.:10:52.

being misused and arguments getting too over the top, people are getting

:10:53.:10:58.

fed up on one or other side. I suppose it is partly that Mr Cameron

:10:59.:11:04.

has not taken the attack that -- the TAK that Harold Wilson did when he

:11:05.:11:07.

stood away from the fray. David Cameron has been swinging punches.

:11:08.:11:11.

Lots of people argued he should have stayed back and apart from anything

:11:12.:11:15.

else that will make it harder him to sit around the Cabinet table with

:11:16.:11:18.

all the colleagues once it is over a given they have been shouting at

:11:19.:11:21.

each other the way they have. I think it is interesting. I've

:11:22.:11:24.

noticed from speaking to friends that whatever size you were on using

:11:25.:11:28.

the other side is manipulative facts and being outrageous and making

:11:29.:11:34.

ridiculous assertions about history. A lot of this is in the eye of the

:11:35.:11:39.

border. OK, on to The Guardian. Here is Hillary. Looking very happy on

:11:40.:11:44.

the front page of The Guardian. She is the first woman to win the

:11:45.:11:50.

backing of a major part in the US for the White House. This is

:11:51.:11:54.

history. Yes, yet strangely it doesn't feel that much like history.

:11:55.:11:59.

I think the big ceiling that was shattered was in 2008 when Barack

:12:00.:12:04.

Obama became president, the first African-American president Hillary

:12:05.:12:06.

Clinton did not get the nation that time around. I have been struck by

:12:07.:12:09.

how little soap by the campaign has been about, hey, it's a woman. That

:12:10.:12:14.

is a sign of progress because of that with the one thing people were

:12:15.:12:19.

fixated on, they're perhaps would not be much to her candidacy. I

:12:20.:12:23.

suppose the fact she is a woman is going to become much more central to

:12:24.:12:28.

the debate now because she is dealing with a man who was a bully

:12:29.:12:30.

and has been incredibly disparaging and has been incredibly disparaging

:12:31.:12:37.

in public to women and is seen as a sad misogynist by some. Yes,

:12:38.:12:41.

absolutely. This will come to the forefront, not least because Hillary

:12:42.:12:44.

is a complex character that had this long history in the public eye as a

:12:45.:12:49.

senator a first Lady. We seen her as a wife and politician and that is

:12:50.:12:55.

interesting dynamic and it will be great to see how that plays out.

:12:56.:12:58.

Briefly, Bernie still in the race. Why isn't he dropping at? I don't

:12:59.:13:02.

know, the reason he is still there is he wants to have some influence

:13:03.:13:05.

of the convention in Philadelphia and in July he thinks he has more by

:13:06.:13:09.

staying in. I think that is doubtful. He has lost and is under a

:13:10.:13:13.

lot of pressure from Democrats. He only very recently became a Democrat

:13:14.:13:18.

to contest this is a registered Independent for years. Of Democrats

:13:19.:13:23.

are angry about him continuing to go on and think he should get out. He

:13:24.:13:28.

is doing .com's work for him. He is apparently chatting with Obama

:13:29.:13:32.

tomorrow, maybe the president will have the thing to say. Finally,

:13:33.:13:36.

Lucy, there is a fault in this dishwasher in the middle of the

:13:37.:13:42.

Daily Mail. Why is that? This is a sweet picture of a fox, a rare good

:13:43.:13:46.

news story. We are more used to hearing Fox's creeping into homes

:13:47.:13:50.

and turning out rubbish or attacking young children. This is a sweet and

:13:51.:13:55.

fluffy looking picture of a fox that has crept into the pits need into

:13:56.:13:59.

the house and decided it would have a sleep between the dishes and

:14:00.:14:09.

glasses. It is Fox News, fantastic. That was dreadful. One of the things

:14:10.:14:13.

this made me think is that the internet not only is it playing

:14:14.:14:16.

havoc with the business models of newspapers, it is taking over with

:14:17.:14:22.

the news agenda. It is an internet meme and amazing what has happened.

:14:23.:14:27.

We are speaking about it here on the venerable BBC. There you go. It has

:14:28.:14:32.

been great having you in. Many thanks. Is it for the paper tonight

:14:33.:14:35.

but before we go, these front pages have come in while we've been on

:14:36.:14:39.

air. The Times says Vote Leave has been boosted by the support of the

:14:40.:14:47.

chair of JCB, Lord Bradford. Tory MP Sarah Woollaston switches sides to

:14:48.:14:50.

join the Remain campaign and on the referendum, The Sun features were

:14:51.:14:54.

the audience members from the ITV TV debate this week, accusing the Prime

:14:55.:14:57.

Minister of 11 so much uncontrolled immigration that part of his

:14:58.:15:04.

hometown are now no-go areas. All the front pages online you can read

:15:05.:15:12.

a detailed review. And you can see us there too with each night's

:15:13.:15:16.

edition of the papers being posted shortly after we finish. Thank you.

:15:17.:15:20.

Thank you a lot in. Goodbye. Good evening. Once again today the

:15:21.:15:35.

heat and humidity triggered some more thundery downpours. The

:15:36.:15:38.

temperature about

:15:39.:15:39.
