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

:00:00.:00:19.

It's curtailed with forces beyond our control again.

:00:20.:00:27.

With me are Sian Griffiths, the education editor

:00:28.:00:29.

of the Sunday Times, and the political

:00:30.:00:31.

We have some of tomorrow's front pages in, starting with the

:00:32.:00:41.

Observer. There could be an end to increases in the states pension and

:00:42.:00:48.

ring-fenced spending on the NHS. There's a picture of the Queen's

:00:49.:00:52.

90th birthday celebrations. The Mail on Sunday leads with the referendum,

:00:53.:00:55.

the Archbishop of Canterbury's announcement that he is voting to

:00:56.:01:00.

remain in the EU. We will start with the referendum, of course, and here

:01:01.:01:04.

it is on the Sunday Telegraph, they are saying they have an exclusive

:01:05.:01:08.

with the Prime Minister, telling the elderly their special protection

:01:09.:01:11.

from cuts is at risk if they vote to leave. PM's Brexit pensions warning,

:01:12.:01:17.

it says. Some of the other claims as well, will they be enough to

:01:18.:01:23.

concentrate people's minds, you wonder, bus passes, TV licences,

:01:24.:01:26.

retirement income no longer funded by the government, handing license

:01:27.:01:29.

fees to the BBC anyway. I think what's happening here is another day

:01:30.:01:34.

and it's another scare story if you vote for Brexit. The Prime Minister

:01:35.:01:37.

has done an article for the Sunday Telegraph and this time he is

:01:38.:01:39.

targeting particularly pensioners, because they are seen as the people

:01:40.:01:44.

most likely to vote in favour of Britain leaving Europe. He is

:01:45.:01:55.

targeting them, saying if you vote for Brexit things like you're

:01:56.:01:57.

guaranteed pension rights, a minimum of 2.5% a year, free TV licences,

:01:58.:02:01.

could be at risk if you vote for Brexit. These are people more likely

:02:02.:02:04.

to turn out, but how much of a scare story is it? He says there will be a

:02:05.:02:08.

?40 billion black hole in public spending should we leave. Yes, and

:02:09.:02:11.

it's coming obviously as these polls are starting to show a significant

:02:12.:02:17.

lead for Brexit. There's a ten point lead for Brexit over Remain, I think

:02:18.:02:21.

in the Independent they have a special poll, so the whole thing is

:02:22.:02:24.

really hotting up now, the stakes are getting higher. ?40 billion

:02:25.:02:30.

black hole in public finances and this warning to the over 65 is is

:02:31.:02:37.

obviously a major attempt now by the Remain campaign to try and claw back

:02:38.:02:41.

and reduce the size of that lead that the Brexit team now have. But

:02:42.:02:46.

we know, Vincent, that polls don't tell us the whole story. In fact,

:02:47.:02:50.

they often get it very wrong and they are an indicator on that day,

:02:51.:02:54.

and it relies on people telling the truth about what they are going to

:02:55.:02:57.

vote. We saw last year at the general election everyone was

:02:58.:03:01.

expecting there to be some kind of need for a coalition, not an

:03:02.:03:04.

outright win by the Conservatives. That's right, at the election the

:03:05.:03:08.

pollsters have more information to go on with general elections. This

:03:09.:03:11.

is such a rare, unique vote that they don't have a lot of data to go

:03:12.:03:16.

on and there's no guarantee, although the pollsters all say they

:03:17.:03:18.

have upped their game and changed their methodologies and the way they

:03:19.:03:21.

try to score people to make sure they are more accurate but there a

:03:22.:03:24.

huge range in the polls at the moment, an awful lot of people who

:03:25.:03:28.

are undecided and really I don't think there's any way people can

:03:29.:03:31.

rely on the polls, not so soon after the general election where we saw

:03:32.:03:35.

how far out they were. There have been other very recent polls that

:03:36.:03:38.

have shown they are neck and neck, it would be difficult to call, the

:03:39.:03:43.

margin and of error. The Mail on Sunday says the Archbishop of

:03:44.:03:45.

Canterbury is voting in, he's backing Remain. With the background

:03:46.:03:51.

of the Prime Minister talking about all those cuts to public spending. I

:03:52.:03:55.

don't suppose it's that much of a surprise, do you think, that Justin

:03:56.:04:00.

Welby is voting to stay in? He has also written an article for the Mail

:04:01.:04:04.

on Sunday and he says that he's going to vote Remain because leaving

:04:05.:04:08.

the EU would harm the economy, but also because Britain's Christian

:04:09.:04:13.

heritage was founded on peace and reconciliation, building bridges,

:04:14.:04:15.

not barriers. From that point of view it's not really a surprise, one

:04:16.:04:19.

would expect him, one would be very surprised if he joined the Leave

:04:20.:04:23.

campaign. Both sides are always keen to have somebody who is very well

:04:24.:04:28.

known on their side. You wonder whether this will make much

:04:29.:04:31.

difference. I think we have seen earlier in the week, the Archbishop

:04:32.:04:37.

Justin Welby's criticism of Nigel Farage's remarks, so I think it was

:04:38.:04:41.

pretty clear that the line about bridges not barriers is going to be

:04:42.:04:45.

one that the Church of England will put out there. What's important

:04:46.:04:48.

about this is both sides have their key endorsers if you like. They have

:04:49.:04:51.

a grid of announcement they are planning day by day and Sunday, what

:04:52.:04:56.

better day, it's the day to roll-out the Archbishop of Canterbury, on

:04:57.:04:59.

Monday it could be a football or pop Star, we have had several of those,

:05:00.:05:04.

and we will see this until the 23rd of June. Is the Mail on Sunday which

:05:05.:05:12.

has chosen to put a Remain name on their front page. The Observer,

:05:13.:05:15.

McDonnell, the XP HBOS was -- must lose his knighthood, the Shadow

:05:16.:05:19.

Chancellor is saying if Sir Philip Green refuses to speak to MPs next

:05:20.:05:22.

week at the joint select committee he is going to be called to attend,

:05:23.:05:30.

he should lose the Sir. Perhaps unreasonably, the Daily Mail has

:05:31.:05:33.

been saying he should be stripped of his knighthood, there is no question

:05:34.:05:37.

that Sir Philip Green has an awful lot of questions to answer and if he

:05:38.:05:41.

doesn't turn up, as he is threatening next week, he will have

:05:42.:05:46.

to turn up. Mike Ashley Sports Direct try this trick of saying, I'm

:05:47.:05:51.

not going to go, in the end they always go. Frank Field has been so

:05:52.:05:56.

outspoken before he has got to the committee. I'm sure he will get a

:05:57.:05:59.

fair hearing if he turns up. Frank Field could I guess have waited, he

:06:00.:06:03.

could have said these things on Wednesday and not said them in

:06:04.:06:06.

advance, but that is not an excuse for Philip Green not turn up on

:06:07.:06:11.

Wednesday. What Field said was quite understandable. He was saying that

:06:12.:06:16.

what he said to the FT was his committee would laugh if Philip

:06:17.:06:19.

Green were to offer less than ?600 million to settle BHS's pension

:06:20.:06:25.

debts. When he gives evidence on Wednesday to the work and pensions

:06:26.:06:29.

committee. And for all these people, whose jobs are at risk and whose

:06:30.:06:34.

pensions are now going to take a cut, this is very, very important

:06:35.:06:39.

stuff. He always says he's done nothing wrong. The that's right, but

:06:40.:06:43.

everybody wants to hear the answer as to why it was a good decision to

:06:44.:06:48.

sell a company for ?1 to a thrice bankrupt. I don't think anybody

:06:49.:06:53.

think that was the most strategic of business decisions. Let's look at

:06:54.:06:55.

the Observer, Wales versus Slovakia, they won 2-1 after 58 years in the

:06:56.:07:02.

wilderness, Sharm is very pleased. I'm extremely pleased because I'm

:07:03.:07:06.

from Wales. I'm not really a football fan, but I did watch the

:07:07.:07:09.

match and it was exciting. I thought what was lovely about it was we have

:07:10.:07:13.

seen the treble in Marseille, there was no cab -- there was no trouble

:07:14.:07:19.

in Bordeaux. It was a civilised affair. There's a lot of singing,

:07:20.:07:23.

because we like singing. There were hymns and arias and land of my

:07:24.:07:27.

Fathers, and that was lovely, and there was such a fantastic team

:07:28.:07:31.

spirit as well. That's what you want because tonight it has felt in

:07:32.:07:34.

Marseille, what happened on the pitch was absolutely secondary to

:07:35.:07:37.

what was going on before the match Matt and then inside the stadium.

:07:38.:07:43.

This is before the game even started, this incredible violence

:07:44.:07:47.

out on the streets between three different groups of fans, we

:07:48.:07:51.

understand. The that's right, a lot of front pages will change by

:07:52.:07:54.

tomorrow morning to reflect those awful images. This seems to be an

:07:55.:07:59.

unholy cocktail of incidents. You have English football thugs, French

:08:00.:08:02.

hooligan, Russian hooligans, and questions of how the police and

:08:03.:08:06.

security and -- are handling it. It's a confluence of those things.

:08:07.:08:10.

It's making what looks like it could be a very dangerous situation out

:08:11.:08:13.

there. It could get worse potentially later tonight, let's

:08:14.:08:19.

hope not. The important thing to remember, a lot of it was people who

:08:20.:08:23.

go out there, it's in their social calendar of fights to go to. These

:08:24.:08:26.

are people who go out looking for trouble rather than looking for

:08:27.:08:30.

football. But many thousands of people go and it's the last thing

:08:31.:08:34.

they want. That's right, it's a tiny minority. It looks like a lot of

:08:35.:08:38.

people in these pictures. Back to the Telegraph, happy 90th birthday,

:08:39.:08:42.

your Majesty. Have we not got that, do you want me to show you? There

:08:43.:08:47.

you go. The Queen looks like she is wearing the same colour outfit has

:08:48.:08:51.

made! On the television earlier it looks more vivid, didn't it? Have a

:08:52.:08:57.

photo shopped it? It did, it looks darker green than on the very livid

:08:58.:09:01.

green that we saw on television all day today. Slightly strange. A

:09:02.:09:05.

lovely picture of all the royals there. A very odd green on that

:09:06.:09:10.

Sunday Telegraph picture. We are matching, and amazing turnout,

:09:11.:09:15.

wasn't it, Sian. I think it's lime green. Its emerald, there. Enough of

:09:16.:09:19.

the Queen's outfits. That's the papers for this hour but Sian and

:09:20.:09:24.

Vincent will be back at 11:30pm. Normal time. I know it annoys you.

:09:25.:09:30.

Coming up next, it's time for Reporters.

:09:31.:09:33.
