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

:00:13.:00:15.

With me are Rob Merrick, Westminster Correspondent

:00:16.:00:18.

at South West News Service, and broadcaster Natalie Hayes.

:00:19.:00:24.

The Metro leads with the mass shooting in a Florida nightclub

:00:25.:00:30.

The Times has the same story - it says the attacker swore

:00:31.:00:36.

allegiance to Islamic State before carrying out the killings.

:00:37.:00:39.

While the Telegraph has IS claiming responsibility for the massacre -

:00:40.:00:45.

the terror group is "waging war" on Western gays, it claims.

:00:46.:00:48.

The Express carries some hostile reaction from Leave campaigners

:00:49.:00:52.

to David Cameron's warning that a vote to quit the EU could mean

:00:53.:00:55.

And the Daily Star says England could be thrown out of Euro 2016

:00:56.:00:59.

We will begin with a couple of the newspapers tonight are reporting the

:01:00.:01:14.

shooting of 50 people at the gay nightclub in Florida last night. The

:01:15.:01:19.

metal has it, massacre in gay clubs it says, at least 50 guns down by

:01:20.:01:26.

Daesh fanatic. It is immediately characterised as a terror attack and

:01:27.:01:30.

for some people it doesn't feel the fact that this was a gay nightclub

:01:31.:01:35.

has been emphasised enough? Kind step back from the horror of the

:01:36.:01:39.

attack itself to consider the way the papers have reported it. Really

:01:40.:01:44.

it is striking the emphasis is very much on the fact that this person

:01:45.:01:49.

declared allegiance to IS and not, as I was travelling in this evening

:01:50.:01:53.

it that obvious we would speak about the hate crime carried out by

:01:54.:01:56.

someone who clearly is homophobic and hate gay people and we are in a

:01:57.:02:00.

city where we know violent homophobia is not something that is

:02:01.:02:09.

restricted to Islamists or extreme Muslims, there was nail bombs a cat

:02:10.:02:13.

-- attacks insult will carried out by a white British man. Yes, it is

:02:14.:02:18.

surprising at first sight the emphasis is so much of the fact he

:02:19.:02:22.

swore allegiance but I guess that is perhaps what the newspapers are

:02:23.:02:25.

considering to be the most headlining aspect of the attack and

:02:26.:02:31.

he did apparently swear allegiance to Isis. Hillary Clinton and Barack

:02:32.:02:35.

Obama did say this is a terror attack, this is a hate crime. The

:02:36.:02:40.

fact it happened in this place that is supposed to be a safe space for

:02:41.:02:46.

people late at night and the horror of the attack is palpable. And on

:02:47.:02:53.

pride weekend. I suppose you could argue that the reason it coincides

:02:54.:02:58.

with pride is not coincidental, it's that people felt more able to kiss

:02:59.:03:02.

in the street is the court the metal begins with and as Islamic begins

:03:03.:03:08.

with the Islamic jurist angered by the sight of two men kissing, if

:03:09.:03:12.

only to mind is that pride is a time when generally people who feel they

:03:13.:03:15.

cannot display their affection feel that this is the time we can do

:03:16.:03:19.

this, it is a time of acceptance and pride soldiers especially awful that

:03:20.:03:23.

it was today, although 50 people dead would be all for whatever time.

:03:24.:03:27.

The Times has the story as well. He swore allegiance to Isis and then

:03:28.:03:34.

shot 50 people dead. Of course, Isis, Islamic State, so-called, have

:03:35.:03:39.

claimed responsibility. It feels like an awkward thing, in

:03:40.:03:44.

appropriate thing to say that somebody allied to them, they say,

:03:45.:03:49.

he was an IS fighter, but there is no suggestion that anyone in the IS

:03:50.:03:54.

hierarchy knew about this in advance. I think it is one of those

:03:55.:04:01.

questions that will be played out on the European media and plaguing the

:04:02.:04:04.

FBI because it appears to be the case that they spoke to this man

:04:05.:04:10.

more than once had decided he was problematic but not something they

:04:11.:04:12.

needed to pay much attention to and now look. It is worth pointing out

:04:13.:04:17.

that The Times has not gone with the idea of it being a gay club anywhere

:04:18.:04:21.

in their headline, it is in the first paragraph but not in their

:04:22.:04:25.

headline at all. It is in a subheading but not the top. Again,

:04:26.:04:30.

sitting here in Britain urges much more difficult to get hold of

:04:31.:04:34.

firearms, the fact he has an assault rifle and handgun that he seems to

:04:35.:04:39.

have bought within the last week is always so apparent to us. Yes, it

:04:40.:04:45.

seems just sitting here that the main reasons why this awful crime

:04:46.:04:50.

was carried out was one that the man hate gay people and secondly that he

:04:51.:04:53.

could so easily get hold of an assault rifle in America, people sat

:04:54.:04:57.

around this table discussing it for many years as being absurd and self

:04:58.:05:01.

harming to America but nothing has ever been done. Rather than as we've

:05:02.:05:05.

discussed a second ago, the ices allegiance was to Isis encourages

:05:06.:05:11.

moguls like this business to does not -- like this person because

:05:12.:05:14.

gives people the impression it would carry out acts like this around the

:05:15.:05:18.

world. Building are thinking about this evening was what impacts it

:05:19.:05:22.

would have on the US election and anyone who thinks there is no love

:05:23.:05:26.

that Donald Trump wants think we need to think again because

:05:27.:05:32.

immediately he has thanked people for their congratulations for him

:05:33.:05:39.

being right that Islamic extremism and appeared to be no thought to be

:05:40.:05:45.

dead or their families. Donald Trump saying he reaffirmed his commitment

:05:46.:05:48.

to preventing Muslims who are foreign-born from coming into the

:05:49.:05:52.

US, more reaction to that as well. Lesson away from that story. -- let

:05:53.:05:59.

us move away. The FA urges fans to behave as Uefa threatens expulsion.

:06:00.:06:04.

That is on the style in the -- in a second as well. Russia and England

:06:05.:06:08.

could be thrown out of 2016 F there are more scenes like we saw last

:06:09.:06:13.

night. And the day before and the day before that. It seems like a

:06:14.:06:18.

rotten time to be in English football fan because essentially a

:06:19.:06:21.

spend a couple of days watching people who presumably do not

:06:22.:06:24.

represent you and why you like football behaving appallingly on the

:06:25.:06:28.

streets of Marseille and then you get attacked or run at or alarmed by

:06:29.:06:34.

Russian fans and suddenly like on fear parents someone says I will

:06:35.:06:38.

bang your head together. It doesn't seem like a joyous European cup so

:06:39.:06:43.

far for British fans. I presume everyone will now put their

:06:44.:06:46.

proverbial neck in and behave better. The Daily Star says England

:06:47.:06:55.

face axe from your 2016, Russian fans attacked us but we get warning.

:06:56.:07:02.

England or English fans, or English people, were insult doesn't involve

:07:03.:07:07.

some of those street battles if not in the stadium, which seemed to be

:07:08.:07:12.

more of a charge by Russian fans. I need to declare an interest of the

:07:13.:07:15.

Welshmen because we have a great interest if England are kicked out

:07:16.:07:18.

before the game on Thursday. Reading the story that seems 1 million miles

:07:19.:07:24.

away. Russia is being investigated because it has cost the charge in

:07:25.:07:31.

the stadium and England. They behave badly and Poland several years ago.

:07:32.:07:36.

Yes, but Uefa said they are not carrying out investigations or

:07:37.:07:39.

sanctions just know against England because the violence England fans

:07:40.:07:41.

were pulling for the place outside the stadium so it seems a little

:07:42.:07:45.

relief from we are not investigating you too if that happens again we'll

:07:46.:07:50.

get you out, so we're a long way off from being kicked out of the

:07:51.:07:53.

tournament and just as they've not been responsible for any violence on

:07:54.:07:56.

the ground, which seems crucial. Yes, if you cannot control it in the

:07:57.:07:59.

ground there is something seriously wrong. The fact they were fireworks

:08:00.:08:03.

were surprising to me. I assumed when they said extra security that

:08:04.:08:10.

fireworks, which are explosives, dangerous things, but probably not

:08:11.:08:13.

be there. Turns out I was mistaken. Let that be a lesson to me. Some

:08:14.:08:17.

witnesses we spoke last night said they could not see police in the

:08:18.:08:24.

stadium, although there must have been some. One would presume so.

:08:25.:08:28.

They could be segregated as well. And the disguises, they say people

:08:29.:08:35.

dressing with England shirts. And very king -- confident England will

:08:36.:08:39.

line up against well on Thursday. Your worried or happy Christmas a

:08:40.:08:46.

little or happy Christmas a little of both?. Vindictive Cameron tries

:08:47.:08:51.

Brexit -- Brexit blackmail. More of this florid language. This is David

:08:52.:08:55.

Cameron's suggesting yesterday that there be a 40 billion pound black

:08:56.:09:01.

hole if Britain leaves the EU and some of that would affect pensions.

:09:02.:09:09.

That was the danger. I couldn't help but smile when read the intro. For

:09:10.:09:14.

years and years he has been accused of bribing the elderly into voting

:09:15.:09:17.

Conservative by throwing these goodies at them and now further

:09:18.:09:24.

evidence of how the EU referendum is turning so much of what we thought

:09:25.:09:27.

we knew on its head that David Cameron appears to be turning on

:09:28.:09:31.

pensioners and surprisingly the express that sells heavily to all

:09:32.:09:36.

The People, -- to older people. The other bizarre thing that perhaps

:09:37.:09:41.

points to the Prime Minister's desperation is that one of the

:09:42.:09:45.

things he said might be under threat are free TV licences but as everyone

:09:46.:09:52.

knows, we the BBC will take it on over the next several years. That

:09:53.:09:56.

was strange. I pointed that out last night, it didn't escape me. I was

:09:57.:10:02.

seized upon it to pointed out that there was a slight elasticity about

:10:03.:10:08.

that claim. It feels strange for him to be warning pensioners when he has

:10:09.:10:12.

spent so long giving them goodies many people would see but what he

:10:13.:10:17.

wants to do is to try and make more tangible for people the threat he

:10:18.:10:20.

believes exists from ask pulling out of the EU and one of those would be

:10:21.:10:23.

what we would lose with this black all we have to fill. Both sides

:10:24.:10:31.

never agree on any statistic. It is probably -- properly exhausting that

:10:32.:10:33.

of the statistic ever want to focus on is that David Cameron's voters

:10:34.:10:38.

tend to be older people and more likely to vote Tory than younger

:10:39.:10:45.

people. Older people tend to be more in favour of leaving than remaining,

:10:46.:10:50.

so his natural constituency of older people and pensioners who are in

:10:51.:10:53.

favour of leaving bags some considerable percentage, that is The

:10:54.:11:00.

People he now needs to target. Normally has target demographic, The

:11:01.:11:04.

People he finally cannot win over. He will have to look at the young

:11:05.:11:06.

people. You might wish to use that tendency

:11:07.:11:16.

idea with this next story, Labour voters and what they might tend to

:11:17.:11:20.

do. Labour supporters flood Brexit camp. Jeremy Corbyn is going to be

:11:21.:11:30.

more visible apparently next week. There was the suggestion in one of

:11:31.:11:34.

the papers this morning that suggested he was going to take front

:11:35.:11:38.

stage this week, I am sceptical of that. The PM has two fight every

:11:39.:11:43.

day. On the 16 days to go or something, less than that. Actually

:11:44.:11:46.

he once we've to be out there fighting. Jeremy Corbyn is said to

:11:47.:11:53.

be lukewarm at best about EU membership. We are told he is going

:11:54.:11:58.

to come out fighting, he has been campaigning but has not tended to

:11:59.:12:01.

get the publicity the various warring conservative side is getting

:12:02.:12:06.

the campaign. I am sceptical end the thought that he will win over Brexit

:12:07.:12:15.

because just because he was elected does not mean Labour voters as a

:12:16.:12:19.

whole will identify with him. Tony Blair might have more of an

:12:20.:12:23.

influence on the way labour voters will vote. It was an influence some

:12:24.:12:27.

time ago that Labour and the Conservatives who are drawn staying

:12:28.:12:31.

in the EU should have made it clear this is not about party politics

:12:32.:12:36.

because there is a cognitive dissonance for people who normally

:12:37.:12:40.

vote Labour for example. That's exactly what I think is playing on

:12:41.:12:44.

people's minds and I think not unreasonably the remain camp are

:12:45.:12:49.

pretty keen to hear Jeremy Corbyn say I understand you would like to

:12:50.:12:52.

give Cameron a bloody nose but this is not the time. It is Tom Watson

:12:53.:12:58.

who has given that vote. Do not give the vote to punish the government

:12:59.:13:05.

job as Prime Minister. I imagine job as Prime Minister. I imagine

:13:06.:13:08.

that is what they are hoping Jeremy Corbyn will say to his largely young

:13:09.:13:17.

fan base. And did as a reference to a psychodrama which is a good word

:13:18.:13:24.

to use. Basically the whole thing seems different. The clarity that

:13:25.:13:31.

many people are say they need to understand the issues is probably

:13:32.:13:35.

diminishing for some people. That is probably true and the constant

:13:36.:13:38.

refrain from voters during this campaign has been the more people

:13:39.:13:42.

talk the fewer facts we get and I simply do not see that changing over

:13:43.:13:47.

the next whatever that is, 12 days. I battle let's look at the Telegraph

:13:48.:13:52.

finally. The Queen and Prince Philip in an open top car making their way

:13:53.:13:56.

down the Mall as part of the birthday celebrations. I think the

:13:57.:14:02.

Queen is ready to draw an end to it, telling the driver to put his foot

:14:03.:14:06.

down. Via macro yes, I think they were running late and for these

:14:07.:14:12.

standing outside in the rain and realising they were going to be late

:14:13.:14:16.

for the people they were meeting Sheetal Prince Philip and he banged

:14:17.:14:20.

on the roof of the car and that appears to be a gesture to say Harry

:14:21.:14:27.

upsell and boot your foot down. They caught the time up and that was 11

:14:28.:14:31.

minutes so that is good going. It must have sped down the Mall.

:14:32.:14:35.

You'll both be back at half eleven for another look at the stories

:14:36.:14:42.

Coming up next we will be back with more on the shootings in Orlando in

:14:43.:14:51.

just a
