Invade Next. -- Where To Invade Next.

:00:09.:00:13.

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

:00:14.:00:17.

With me are Sian Griffiths, the education editor

:00:18.:00:19.

of the Sunday Times, and the political commentator

:00:20.:00:22.

Tomorrow's front pages, starting with...

:00:23.:00:28.

The Observer carries a warning from David Cameron that a vote

:00:29.:00:31.

to leave the EU could mean an end to increases in the state pension

:00:32.:00:35.

and ring-fenced spending levels for the NHS.

:00:36.:00:36.

And that story also dominates the front page

:00:37.:00:38.

The Mail On Sunday leads with the referendum too -

:00:39.:00:43.

but it has the Archbishop of Canterbury's announcement that

:00:44.:00:45.

The Sunday Times carries allegations that British

:00:46.:00:49.

diplomats considered the possibility of giving Turks the right

:00:50.:00:51.

The Express claims Downing Street is panicking

:00:52.:00:59.

about the prospect of losing the EU referendum.

:01:00.:01:02.

The Sunday Mirror juxtaposes pictures

:01:03.:01:03.

of the Royal family celebrating the Queen's 90th birthday

:01:04.:01:10.

with images of English and Russian football fans fighting in Marseille.

:01:11.:01:12.

Let's begin with the Telegraph, and their main story, PM's Brexit

:01:13.:01:30.

pensions warning exclusive. He tells elderly their special protection

:01:31.:01:33.

from cuts is at risk if they vote to leave. Particular reasons to appeal

:01:34.:01:40.

to this part of the electorate. David Cameron has written an article

:01:41.:01:47.

for the Sunday Telegraph, saying TV licences and retirement income may

:01:48.:01:52.

not still be funded by the government, and it is because

:01:53.:01:56.

economists are predicting a ?40 billion black hole in finances. He

:01:57.:02:02.

is targeting be over 65s because we think they are more likely to vote

:02:03.:02:06.

to leave the EU. So they are the People who will these these things.

:02:07.:02:12.

It seems as though Downing Street are getting a little rattled by

:02:13.:02:17.

these polls that are emerging, giving the Leave campaign a lead

:02:18.:02:24.

over the ones who want to remain. Slightly disingenuous to talk about

:02:25.:02:28.

the government funding license fees, because as we know it, the over 75s

:02:29.:02:35.

fees are being handed over to the BBC eventually. But we have to be

:02:36.:02:39.

careful with polls as we know from the general election last year. They

:02:40.:02:43.

can be completely wrong. Most put the two sides neck and neck. They

:02:44.:02:49.

are very close. There is a poll in the Observer suggesting a

:02:50.:02:51.

significant number of people are yet to make up their mind and will only

:02:52.:02:56.

do so in the last seven days before June 23. Even the polls we have at

:02:57.:03:01.

the moment are on the basis that many are yet to decide. They need to

:03:02.:03:07.

be taken with a pinch of salt. The key with the stories is yet again

:03:08.:03:13.

the government are making the economic argument, and you can pick

:03:14.:03:18.

anything you like and this time it happens to be TV licences and

:03:19.:03:23.

pensions. If we leave, Britain will be worse off, therefore the economy

:03:24.:03:27.

will go down and everything you like or value will suffer, and this

:03:28.:03:32.

weekend, the common theme from Downing Street is it will be

:03:33.:03:37.

pensions, pension benefits, free TV licences. Both sides were criticised

:03:38.:03:45.

by the Treasury Select Committee for being a elastic with their

:03:46.:03:50.

statistics. If you want to find a statistic that wants to prove your

:03:51.:03:55.

point, usually can. People will be sceptical about this ?40 billion

:03:56.:04:01.

figure. Every Sunday there is another story on one side or the

:04:02.:04:04.

other are doing one thing or another. What I think the People who

:04:05.:04:11.

want to leave are actually pushing home, and they are getting it, is

:04:12.:04:16.

this idea of immigration. That really is being taken seriously.

:04:17.:04:20.

That is why they are getting ahead in the polls. It is scaring people.

:04:21.:04:25.

The Sunday express say panic rips downstream. Brexit surge reefing. --

:04:26.:04:42.

grips damaging. Jeremy Corbyn says he is working hard to get the Labour

:04:43.:04:48.

vote out. He also said on television how much he led the EU, he said

:04:49.:04:54.

about seven, seven .5 out of ten. In terms of convincing Labour people he

:04:55.:04:59.

is advocating remain, he is not making the most convincing fist of

:05:00.:05:05.

it. They are seen as the critical element where if they don't come out

:05:06.:05:09.

and vote for remain, Britain could well vote to leave. Especially those

:05:10.:05:15.

Labour constituencies I speak to, they say what they are hearing from

:05:16.:05:19.

Labour voters is they are increasingly inclined to vote early.

:05:20.:05:23.

That critical element of sport could be enough to tip the balance in

:05:24.:05:28.

Britain could vote to leave it was Labour voters have been unconvinced

:05:29.:05:34.

-- of support. People are confused where Labour stands because there

:05:35.:05:38.

has not been enough clarity about their position. Labour will be under

:05:39.:05:42.

pressure to make that case more strongly in the few days that are

:05:43.:05:48.

left. The case for remain unusually being made on the front of the Mall

:05:49.:05:53.

of Sunday. The former Archbishop of Canterbury saying he wants to be in.

:05:54.:05:58.

Why is he backing remain? What are his reasons? He has written an

:05:59.:06:05.

article in the mall on Sunday where he says leaving the EU would harm

:06:06.:06:12.

the economy -- the Mail on Sunday. Britain's Christian heritage was

:06:13.:06:23.

founded on these values. I'm not surprised by this that he is backing

:06:24.:06:30.

the Leave campaign, but as we say every week, new figures come out on

:06:31.:06:36.

one side or the other. It is as if they have drawn up their list and

:06:37.:06:40.

are releasing them like a jeep to the papers. -- drip. Proposals under

:06:41.:06:54.

wraps for letting in Turks, until after the referendum. Wasn't this

:06:55.:06:59.

part of the deal with Turkey agreed to help with the refugee and migrant

:07:00.:07:04.

crisis that there would be free travel arrangements for their

:07:05.:07:08.

people? I found this story confusing. The story seems to

:07:09.:07:15.

suggest there have been some diplomatic appraisals and plans

:07:16.:07:20.

discussed for up to 1.5 million Turks, giving them visa free travel

:07:21.:07:28.

to the UK. They would be government officials, teachers and civil

:07:29.:07:32.

servants. But they seem to be proposals at an early stage, they

:07:33.:07:37.

don't seem to have gone very far. President Erdogan has agreed a deal

:07:38.:07:42.

with the EU to close his country's borders with Syria, and he is

:07:43.:07:47.

demanding visa free travel to the EU in return. I'm not sure this story

:07:48.:07:54.

sort of text is much further. -- takes this. Doesn't this imply they

:07:55.:08:00.

are being secretive about it until after the referendum? This is

:08:01.:08:05.

something the Leave campaign is promoting, everything is on the

:08:06.:08:09.

backburner until June 23 and then everything will come out of

:08:10.:08:15.

Pandora's box. It does touch on everything they have been saying

:08:16.:08:24.

about immigration as a key issue. And that issue of Turkey potentially

:08:25.:08:27.

joining the EU. The government are at great pains to state that is used

:08:28.:08:33.

if not decades away. Diplomats are encouraged to be frank and talk

:08:34.:08:36.

about both things, a government ministers, let the Home Secretary,

:08:37.:08:43.

Theresa May, and the Defence Secretary, Michael Fallon, Saint

:08:44.:08:46.

bees have been very selectively quoted from the diplomatic cables

:08:47.:08:52.

and we will not be opening the door to 1.5 million Turks -- say these

:08:53.:09:02.

have been. People are worried about the issue of millions of Turks

:09:03.:09:05.

coming to Britain and the government has stressed that will not happen.

:09:06.:09:09.

Diplomatic cables and telegrams, very retro forms of communication.

:09:10.:09:15.

The Sunday Mirror, happy in glorious is the headline, featuring two very

:09:16.:09:21.

different pitches. The Royal family on the balcony of Buckingham Palace

:09:22.:09:25.

looking at the fly past for the Queen's birthday, and then

:09:26.:09:30.

underneath those battles on the streets of Marseille between England

:09:31.:09:36.

and Russia supporters. It is a peculiar juxtaposition. It is

:09:37.:09:42.

gripping. We were discussing the headline earlier. It is a little

:09:43.:09:49.

clunky, but it draws your attention. It is clever, the juxtaposition.

:09:50.:09:57.

Yes, there are two sides in England. You have the Queen's 90 that they,

:09:58.:10:07.

very happy -- 90th birthday. Prince Charlotte getting her first outing

:10:08.:10:12.

in a new dress. And then dreadful hooliganism. Throwing stones,

:10:13.:10:19.

alcoholism. We will see more of these terrible pictures of

:10:20.:10:22.

Marseille, but it is important to point out these are very small grips

:10:23.:10:30.

of English first light. Police are having trouble keeping control of

:10:31.:10:33.

that part of the city -- English first light. You seem to have

:10:34.:10:41.

Russian fans involved and people spoiling for a fight. A tiny

:10:42.:10:45.

minority have gone out with this express intention and it seems like

:10:46.:10:54.

the English supporters are retreating. But some of these fans

:10:55.:11:01.

sticking around and looking for trouble. Staggering that they do not

:11:02.:11:08.

seem to realise they will be filmed. I think they are drunk. It is

:11:09.:11:15.

clearly fuelled by alcohol. They are still clutching their bottles. I

:11:16.:11:19.

think they get to that stage where they have almost no idea what they

:11:20.:11:22.

are doing except they want to fight. John McDonnell, the Shadow

:11:23.:11:31.

Chancellor, suggesting if Sir Philip Green wind appear before select

:11:32.:11:33.

committees this week, he should lose his knighthood. The papers have

:11:34.:11:37.

already been suggesting that. Mike Ashley tried this trick, the Sports

:11:38.:11:43.

Direct owner, and said I will not appear before the committee. He was

:11:44.:11:47.

relatively dragged in. Sir Philip Green has a lot of questions to

:11:48.:11:51.

answer about BHS and is facing similar questions. He really must

:11:52.:11:56.

appear, and he can try to delay it, that he will be there. These

:11:57.:12:01.

accusations have been flying around for a long time. The way Sir Philip

:12:02.:12:06.

Green. With and disposed of the company, who he sold it to, races

:12:07.:12:14.

questions. -- the way Sir Philip Green dealt with. He maintains he

:12:15.:12:22.

did nothing wrong. I think the committee has the right to ask

:12:23.:12:26.

questions. This whole problem of the pension deficit for these 11,000

:12:27.:12:32.

workers who have lost their jobs or will probably lose their jobs with

:12:33.:12:38.

the collapse of BHS, and Sir Philip Green must appear before a committee

:12:39.:12:43.

of MPs to answer a lot of questions that still remain about what

:12:44.:12:48.

happened. More importantly, how are these people, how is this pension

:12:49.:12:55.

deficit going to be made up? He is angry because Frank Field said the

:12:56.:13:00.

Select Committee would laugh if Sir Philip Green were to offer less than

:13:01.:13:06.

?600 million to settle BHS's pension debts when he gives evidence. That

:13:07.:13:13.

is a perfectly proper thing for the head of a Select Committee to

:13:14.:13:17.

suggest. He has to explain why he sold the company to a guy for a

:13:18.:13:22.

pound who has been twice bankrupt. They clearly did not do enough to

:13:23.:13:27.

diligence if they thought Dominic Chappell was right and proper person

:13:28.:13:32.

to buy BHS. The questions are far from over. They have just begun.

:13:33.:13:38.

That is all for the papers. Thank you for talking us to the front

:13:39.:13:42.

pages. All of them are online as is the paper review. Coming up next,

:13:43.:13:48.

even review. -- The Film Review.
